Ever have flashbacks to childhood memories? I learned lots of scripture when I was little through songs and they often still come to mind at different times. How many of you remember Psalty the singing song book? Don't worry, I'm not really that young, he was more when I was a bit older but having younger siblings I still heard WAY more then my fair share of that blue singing song book!
He sang a slow song and the chorus was something like this "..I cast all my cares upon you, I lay all of burdens down at your feet and anytime I don't know what to do, I will cast all my cares up you". Sounds fairly elementary but I cannot tell you how much I have sang that song in my head the last couple weeks. My Dad is having major surgery tomorrow and I have had my fair share of burdens regarding that. Casting my cares up Him...that sounds easy but really it's a hard thing for someone like me who likes to be in charge and manage my circumstances. I am holding fast to that truth right now though because in all honesty, I don't know what else to do.
I will post an update once surgery is done tomorrow on facebook and twitter for all you who follow me there. Until then, my family would covet your prayers. For my Dad, my mom and us kids as we walk through this together.
