One Beautiful Day

by jusylee72

Never been one to let the world beat me down
Never been one to give up on myself
But lately life's been sorta shoving me around
It ain't no pretty picture on a shelf

The mortgages due , the husband's gone
The children cry
saying mama you're working way too much
and sometimes I admit
I just go and sit
and let the teardrops fall where they fall

Chorus:

But I'm pushing on through the wind
Running fast through the rain
and I'm holding on to my heart
living through all the pain
I'm reaching out for the sun
and I'm still here to say.
As I look all around me
It's sure one beautiful day.

Verse:

Took the time to hold the hand of my youngest son
and listen to the stories that he tells
of conquering the monsters underneath the bed
In that sweet little voice I know so well

Put a pretty ribbon in my daughter's hair
Tried to brush the sorrow from her eyes
I said; Listen to me sweet
We'll get what we need
Things will get better all in time

Repeat Chorus;

But I'm pushing on through the wind
Running fast through the rain
and I'm holding on to my heart
living through all the pain
I'm reaching out for the sun
and I'm still here to say.
As I look all around me
It's sure one beautiful day.

Bridge: new melody

Sat out on the porch, a cup of coffee in my hands
Told my oldest son that someday soon he'd be a man
Sometimes life gets rough and money's hard to find
With honesty and hard work we'll have peace of mind

Verse:

Woke up Sunday early to the silent sounds
of sleeping children snuggled in their beds
Looked out the kitchen window at the morning sky
Watched as the sun raised its head
The quiet of the moment filled my heart with peace
the beauty of the day had just arrived
Got down on my knees, Thanked God that I believe
in working through this journey we call life

Chorus;

But I'm pushing on through the wind
Running fast through the rain
and I'm holding on to my heart
living through all the pain
I'm reaching out for the sun
and I'm still here to say
As I look all around me
It's sure one beautiful day

As I look all around me
With God's love all around me
As I look all around me
It's sure one beautiful day.
