that's a question i ask myself often...
you see, i was blessed to spend a lot of time with my aunt growing up. i remember running errands with her and going to church. she had kid friendly tapes in her car and we'd listen to them and sing along.
then it happened...one day she asked, "why have you stopped singing?" i shrugged my shoulders and looked out the window.
i realize now that i had some hefty issues on my mind as a kid and it was apparent that the weight of the world stole my ability to enjoy life. even to sing.
now that i'm an adult, i have replayed that question time and time again. i can still hear the words coming from her lips, the smell of the car...that one question was ingrained in my memory right then.
so...i stop and ask myself every now and then...do i feel free to sing? or am i letting the world burden me down? am i casting my cares or trying to fix things myself?
yes, my aunt so full of wisdom you are. i love you.
and i ask you my friends, are you singing today?
