Casting Call

I woke up this morning with this little chorus playing in my
mind, and it just delighted my heart...

I cast all of my cares upon You...

I lay all of my burdens down at Your feet

And anytime I don't know wha-at to do,

I will cast all of my cares upon You.

{Come to me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.}
Matthew 11:28

He knows us each by name...

He is THRILLED when we rise
from our bed each morning.

We are the focus of His love
all day long.

Who wouldn't want to live for a God like that?

Do you know the love of this wonderful Savior?

If per chance you don't know this amazing love,
or would like to learn more about Him,
please email me anytime...

Praying that you meet with Him today, and truly


Love and hugs,


  1. Soooo beautiful, both the words and the pictures. Thank you, Becky, I needed this!

    blessings and hugs,


  2. A wonderful devotion, Becky. Sometimes the casting is easy, but for some reason sometimes we seem to want to take those cares back...not a good thing for sure.

    Hope the sun is shining there today :-)


  3. Dear Becky,
    A beautiful post today, I really needed that.
    Take care and enjoy your day,

  4. Lovely thoughts and photos. So thankful I know who my Redeemer is! You are a blessing. God is good.

  5. Oh Becky, that is beautiful. Thank you!

  6. Great post for me b/c I have a lot on my mind today. Maybe this gloomier type weather helps in my pondering, but tons of wondering today. I do "cast" them to Him, but do I leave them there?!

  7. Thanks, Becky! What beautiful thoughts and pictures!

  8. I so enjoyed your post!
    Just beautiful!

  9. WOW...I needed this today. This is not the first time one of your blogs has reached over the miles I touched my heart. God is really working through you. :)

  10. I meant reached over the miles and touched my heart.

  11. Hey Beck,
    Thanks for this precious reminder of God's Awesome Care!
    I love the photos and they truly fit as I was singing the song in my head. I think I first learned it along with the kids when they were in a children's church musical.
    Blessings "back-at-ya!"
    Love you lots!

  12. Hi Beck,
    Lovely photos to go along with that song. I like that song too! Don't you just love to get up with a song in your mind and on your heart, that is a spirit lifter for sure.
    Good to talk with you, sorry I was so drowsy! lol
    Been rising a bit to early I think!! lol
    cause by afternoon I am ready for a nap. Didn't take one today, but did yesterday.
    Isn't it so great to know that God cares so much about our lives and has nothing but good in mind for us!! I love that!!
    Have a great evening my sweet friend,
    Love ya, Nellie

  13. wow, Becky! Beautiful words and pictures! You are so blessed with your lovely surroundings there!
    Guess what? We can see our grass now! Yay! We are having a major thaw this week- still lots of piles and snow persists where the sun doesn't hit it, but it is slowly subsiding!

    Again, thanks for this wonderful post and for your ministry through your blog- you are a woman after God's own heart!

    Love you,

  14. Thanks Becky! I need to be reminded of this daily as I struggle so much with holding everything in. I'm still not feeling all that good. I've had a couple of migraines and my stomach is just in knots most of the day. I know I shouldn't be like this!!! I need to lay my burdens down and then walk away. Thank you!!!!

  15. Thank you for such great encouragement Aunt Becky!! What a blessing this is to read especially at the end of the day!! Love you tons!

  16. What a loving God we serve to take upon everyones needs giving us peace and rest!!

  17. Amen to that! I don't know what I would do without the Lord! Thank you for your comment on my freesia. I'm so sorry to hear about all the plants and palm tree dying. I guess that happened because of the unusual cold snap that you had:( Take care dear friend! Hugs, Elena

  18. Thanks for such a sweet reminder of what I'm to do with my cares! I know, but sometimes don't put it into practice. The pictures are beautiful too. I am reading a new book by Elizabeth George.(Breaking the Worry Habit...Forever) It's been such a blessing to me and a reminder of what I'm suppose to do versus WHAT I Usually do! I am to pray and cast!

    You light up my life dear friend.

    Happy Hump Day!
    Much love,

  19. What a way to start the day with a song of Jesus in your heart. Thanks for blessing me Becky!

  22. Hi Becky! thank you for stopping by my blog yesterday! I think yours is amazing. Any time a blogger brings God into their life and shares it with others is so wonderful to me. I too have such a deep appreciation and love for my Savior. You pics are amazing I so love the mountains and beautiful rays of light coming through the clouds. I will visit often! hugs and smiles. The hats and bag.....ahhh I just love making smiles and seeing children happy! or anyone for that matter!

  23. Hi Becky, I am trying hard to visit everyone but my day was so interrupted with a trip to the vet for Cheri. Our vet is nearly an hour away. such is life in the mountains. She needed a booster shot and then we wondered around town and that was the day. sigh.

    See you soon.
    Love xoxo, Jeanne
