Morning Song – I’m Not Tired Yet

May 1, 2016

Here’s the thing about a song like “I’m Not Tired Yet”—it’s the kind of song written by people who are bone-tired.  Picked 300 lbs. of cotton today tired. Cleaned 20 motel rooms today tired. Worked a double-shift down in the mine today tired. Didn’t just do it today; been doing it every working day for the last 30 years tired.

When you’re that tired you’ve got two choices: 1) collapse from exhaustion, or 2) stand up in defiance against those who would define you as “just a”—just a farmhand, just a maid, just a coal digger, and assert your own definition.

Just a child of God.
