No Complaints

If I called today bliss
I’d be remiss

It’s Monday, after all
The weekend had the gall

To end far too early
Leaving me feeling surly

Yet I shan’t complain
There’s not a drop of rain

No Texas-size flood here
Praying for friends dear


It’s Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub and the word of the day from Bjorn is bliss. I started out a little funny, but it turned somber in the end. Perhaps not what Bjorn was looking for, but it’s what came out.

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. Ah yes….the bliss we feel on weekends — that fee time. One thing I love about rejuvenatement (never say retirement) is Sunday nights….because they are the same as any other night now. I don’t have to worry about the to-dos of Monday, getting up and rushing off to work.
    Praying with you for those in Texas and now Louisiana too.

  2. Yes, “the weekend had the gall to end far too early” but we can still count our blessings! I enjoyed your rhyming quadrille, Linda.

  3. I am praying for them also. I have a few relatives in the Houston and Corpus Christi area. They are fine. And any day of the week, we can find bliss in the simple things.

      • You’re a heat girl, I’m a cold weather girl. LOLOLOL cooking over heat outside is to my mind as bad as heat in the kitchen. I can crank up the air conditioning and put the overhead fan on low and I am happy. When I get outside in the heat, I get crazy enough to chew rocks!

      • I know. My mother always said, and that’s why there’s different flavors of ice cream! I cook out in the cool and cold weather. I have done that with snow falling around me! I just use plain old charcoal – I love the flavor.

  4. Ha. I’m with you:

    “The weekend had the gall

    To end far too early
    Leaving me feeling surly”

    But yes, all my family is in Texas, but everyone is fine. So I’m very happy.
