Prasso - I will Cast my Cares

Katie(piano) and me(guitar) singing "I will Cast my Cares" at the Ladies Prasso Group. It was recorded with a cell phone, so the quality is not great.

"I will Cast my Cares"  by Stephen Altrogge

Jesus, I'm frail, I'm so very weak
My faithfulness fails, my courage will flee
But You are my rock, my shelter and shade
When I'm burdened down, You'll carry the weight

So I will cast my cares on You

Yes, I will cast my cares on You
I will rest within Your arms
Knowing I am safe from harm
I will cast my cares on You

When I'm overwhelmed and I cannot stand

You hear every cry and You lift my head
I'm desperate for grace and mercy anew
I must have Your strength, Oh I must have You

Weed Wackety

Today, I wacked my first weed. I will say right did not go well.

First of all...the weed wacker is 6 feet long and weighs more than me. Secondly, it requires a 10 step process to start it. Thirdly, once it is running, it vibrates enough to dislocate your shoulder. dad was patient enough to show me how it's done. I had to pull the cord thing, then there was something about a choke, a throttle...feathering something...and that was the easy part. I just noded and say ok a few times. Then I had to pick up the 6 ft. 50 lb military grade weed wacker. Every time I got close to a weed, the weed wacker tried to spin out of control. I had to hold it at an's 6"...I'm 5'3"..How do I do that?! After that it was..."you're not close enough, faster! you have to hold the throttle...get can't get the weeds you're not close enough...throttle...too close! too close! let me do it...throttle, closer...too close! too close! tore up the end."

Seriously though...that thing was vibrating so bad I couldn't feel my arms, they just hung straight down as I walked into the house.

Harmless, M.D.

(that's what my hair looks like at the piano)
In our last monthly church business meeting, I was really surprised. I was officially made the Music Director and the church secretary at my church. I've been doing the music there for maybe 5 years and since my brother became the pastor I've been a secretary, kinda.

So my question is...
Now that I am "officially" the Music Director, can I put "M.D." after my name?
