Throwing Our Burdens to God

It's the end of a whirlwind summer. It was a lot of fun with a trip to Italy, the Finger Lakes and Ocean Grove, NJ, but there were also some very hard things that my husband and I faced. For one thing he has Lyme and I faced a major disappointment. I was thinking of writing about something paralleling The Life of Pi with mine, but I landed on writing a song instead, poetry. So here it is... you'll have to make up the tune yourself...

Throwing the Ball

I'm taking all this sorrow Lord,
and rolling it into one big ball,
I'm bouncing it high
till it reaches the sky
throwing it all to you, Lord
to You, Lord.

Watch out,Lord,here it comes
like the big,yellow sun,
spinning through the sky at day
Catch it God, it's heading Your way

I'm bouncing it high to reach the sky,
to you Lord,
to you Lord.
All my problems,
rolled into one
All my sadness and sickness too
I'm giving it Lord
All to you--all to You!!!


I'm taking all this disappointment Lord,
and rolling it into one big ball,
I'm bouncing it high
till it reaches the sky
throwing it all to you, Lord
to You, Lord.

All this hurt that stains my heart
All this fate that drains my heart
I'm rolling it all into
One big ball
and bouncing it across the floor
to you Lord,
to you Lord.

You've got your eye on me I know!
Now watch this ball as I throw
I know you can...catch it Lord
It's closer,God, watch the board.

I'm throwing it now to You, Oh Lord
to You, Lord,
to You!



(Casting all our burdens on Him, knowing that He cares for you!)
