Make the World Go Away

“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.” Matthew 24:35

As a little girl, naps were not my favorite times. After giving birth to three sons, being a stay-at-home mom for those three little boys, and eventually a working mother to put those three boys through college, naps became a commodity. You will hear no argument from me. Naps rock.

As that little girl, my parents would lay on the living room couch together during nap time and listen to albums sung by Ray Price. To this day, I can sing most of his hits word for word. I guess when you listen to them regularly enough, regardless of age, memories become sweeter.

One of my favorites was “Make the World Go Away.” Oh, how I long for my mom and dad to have one more nap time on that couch with this song playing in the background.

God, I trust You. Even with my parents. Lord, just for a while, please make the world go away.
