Night and Day

Banish Fun Days

To the tune of Manic Monday.

2AM already 

I was just in the middle of a scream  

I was wishin’ I were sleeping 

I was hoping this was all a bad dream 

But I can’t escape 

Cause then I guess my life would go my way

These are the nights

When you wish your world wasn’t insane. 

It’s just another banish fun days

I wish it was someday 

Cause that’s my run day 

It could happen one day

It’s just another banish fun days.

Have to catch a hurricane 

I’ve got to ride this storm alive 

And if I had a hydroplane

I still don’t think that I would arrive

‘Cause it takes so long 

Just to figure out I’m already there 

Blame it on my brain 

‘Cause it might just be a little impaired.

It’s just another banish fun days

I wish it was someday

Cause that’s my run day

It could happen one day

It’s just another banish fun days

Out of my mind 

Why did my body have to pick this time

to wake now

(this time, this time)

Doesn’t it matter 

That I have two feet and purpose

My life has slowed down

I’m tired of all the bad advice

Come on honey, just drowned out the noise 

Sleep it doesnโ€™t last

(Then you’re not having fun) 

It’s just another banish fun days

I wish it was somedayย 

Cause that’s my run day 

It could happen one day

It’s just another banish fun days

She sits up in bed

Her room is her nest

She so wants to fly

But her Savior knows best 

Her wings are still there

He will guard them with care 

One day she will soar 

From the sea to the shore.

On the heights she will fly

In the shadow of His wings 

With Joy in her heart 

His praises she’ll sing.

On Him she’ll rely 

All the days she has left 

As she waits for the day 

She shall leap from her nest.

The Lord Jesus is our Help, our Hope and our Promise Keeper.

“Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun.”

Psalms 37:4-6

“For You have been my help, And in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy.”

Psalms 63:7

“You are the Lord who reigns over your never-ending kingdom through all the ages of time and eternity! You are faithful to fulfill every promise youโ€™ve made. You manifest yourself as kindness in all you do.”

Psalms 145:13
“Soon you’ll find that it’s your time to fly…”

  1. I really loved the pieces you shared. You are so talented. But I am sorry you couldnโ€™t sleep. That is frustrating. โ€œOn Him she’ll rely.โ€ That line is priceless and sums up the only way we can make it through the ups and downs in life. Blessings, my friend โค๏ธ


  2. Iโ€™m so sorry you have those banish the fun days. Too many of them. I understand. Many will understand. Hang in there, life will turn for you one day. It will become brandish the fun days. Sorry thatโ€™s about the only word that fits. But fun will come your way. โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ


  3. Tina, it is your time to shine! Rely on Him and fly! Start gently; one step forward, or one wing flap, out of your nest comfort zone, holding Jesus’ hand relying on His power. Blessings and sweet dreams!๐Ÿ’ค๐Ÿ’—๐ŸŽˆโœˆ๐ŸŒบ


  4. Loved the two pieces. Banish fun days – very clever.
    I loved the last words of โ€˜Nestโ€™

    On Him she’ll rely
    All the days she has left
    As she waits for the day
    She shall leap from her nest

    You share your heart, and your firm hope in the Lord.
    Blessings to you my friend ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒบ

  6. Its been a month since I started my blog so its not much ๐Ÿ™‚ Here’s the link


  7. I can relate… to all of this! What sticks out is not having enough fun days and wanting to spread my wings and fly to the shore. It could be the physical beach, or even better, eternityโ€™s shore… being faithful can get exhausting! But ya know what? Heaven will be one fun day after another… yes, full of service and all, but also perfect peace and fulfillment! I think the glimpses of those things are what makes fun days fun. I canโ€™t wait to bask in the absoluteness of my Creator!
