needing restoration [Lent, week 1]

Today's reading is Psalm 51.  I am always comforted by the emotional honesty David displays in these words.  As a woman who has struggled her entire life with the depths and heights of tempestuous emotion, I find a kindred spirit with this ancient Hebrew king.  I would that I could express myself with as much honesty... and not get into trouble.  

Will I ever learn to speak this soul truth to my Father, who already knows each intimate detail about His created daughter -- even teaching me wisdom while I was still in my mother's womb?  Such wonder.

Today is a hard day.  I returned to work for the first time after my surgery and find all sorts of emotional strain slowing down my recovery.  But hard days are good days for music.  I hope you can take a moment to enjoy these songs with me.
