Cast your burdens

Monday, May 19th, 2008

I so easily get caught up in the cares and worries of my life, so it’s good to get a kick in the pants every now and then like I did last night. We went to see the Watoto Children’s Choir. These are kids from Uganda who have been orphaned or abandoned, so my troubles pale in comparison. Their joyful presentation in song and dance reminded me to cast my burdens unto Jesus.

Thanks to Victoria

Queen Victoria (Wikipedia)Not only is the city of Prince Albert’s only hospital named after Queen Victoria, but our fair city is named after her husband, he of whom a young Victoria stated, “ …dear Albert… He is so sensible, so kind, and so good, and so amiable too. He has besides, the most pleasing and delightful exterior and appearance you can possibly see.” (ref)

And last but not least, I have today off work because of her. Happy Victoria Day.

Long live the queen.
