Total body Failure . . Oatmeal Days. . and Casting your Cares

this day. . above. . was one when quiet resided predominantly, a "real" dinner was made and actually planned ( that does NOT happen often in our house. ) and knitting. . of all unheard of things. . actually took place in the middle of the day whilst both littles played contentedly on the floor nearby. . like in a Little House on the Prairie book. . Surreal . . but NICE.
This. . was yesterday. .

ToDAY. . on the other hand. . was in every way opposite as you can get
and i would LOVE to know how this happens.
the old saying "when it rains it pours" seems to
SO true and it just puzzles me.
i encourage a fairly quiet existence .. especially at home
and yet some nights are inevitably sleepless, some mornings a
total BLUR... afternoon naps a JOKE . . and dinner. . after NO thought and all of a
sudden realizing .. . wow. . im HUNGRY and so are my kids. .
is Oatmeal.
( not that there's anything wrong with oatmeal for dinner. . we are a big breakfast for dinner
family but it's more in the way we . . arrive. . at the oatmeal. :) )


today everything felt difficult to DO
and it was truly a matter of choosing Joy
over . . anything in the opposing categories.

After the long day came to a quieter close and as i rocked littlest one to sleep
i had these olde familiar words come into my heart
and mind and they proved a great comfort and i was
lead to share them in hopes that others who need these
words. . will happen upon them in a hour of need.

i will Cast all my Cares upon You
i lay all of my burdens
down at Your feet
and any time
i don't know
what to do
i will cast
all my cares
upon You.

a song written from
1 Peter 5 : 7

Who else in the World but Jesus would ask us
to Cast. . Throw. .Lay. . Give away. . our burdens
at HIS feet.

Thank you LORD.

and oatmeal is indeed delish. . no matter what meal of the day. :)

Hey Rachael! I didn't know you had a blog! I just started one, it's fun. That bit of scripture was just what I needed. Thanks ;)
