lay 'em down

No fancy words or cute little family pictures today.
I've had a great week and I'm sure if I sat here long enough I could entertain you with a funny story and a picture to match...

BUT...this week has been different. I'd love to explain exactly what was so different about it but all I can say is that it was a GOD THING!

Things here at the Spain house have been slow. Which is a good thing. I was able to spend quality time with the Bears and Papa Bear as well. Along with that I've been able to spend some awesome, and much needed, quality time with the LORD!

Day in and day out I've shared with Him my struggles, my prayer requests, my good times, praises and everything in between.

And while doing so this song has played over and over again in my mind. I can't tell you how many times I've played in on the computer and I get all giddy when it comes on the satellite radio in the van! (wish I could figure out how to work that stinking 'favorite' feature on the radio to save it!)

So, instead of the funny story and cute little picture, please enjoy this song. Listen to the words. Don't take them lightly. Do as it tells you. God is pretty serious stuff, ya know!

Come down to the river
Come and let yourself in
Make good on a promise
To never hurt again
If you're lost and lonely
You're Broken down

Bring all of your troubles come lay 'em down
All you sinners
And the weak at heart
All you helpless
On the boulevards
Wherever you are now
Whatever evil you've found

Bring all of your troubles
And come lay 'em down
We're all tied to the same old failings
Finding shelter in things we know
We're all dirty like corrupted small towns

We'll bring our troubles
We'll bring our troubles lay 'em down
All you rich men
And the high above

All those with And without love
All you burdened Broken down
Bring all of your troubles
Come lay 'em down
