through music

When I need to be uplifted
When I need to be redeemed
When I need a good cry
When I want to remember
When I need to be distracted
When I want to feel
 
Music gives.
Much like prayer, music is my healing.
Music is my language.
 
When I was a love-struck teenager, I had a notebook filled with song lyrics.
Later, I made mixtapes.
Much later, I dedicated songs to people in my life.
Now I'll hear a song and it's like I'm right back in that place...
Good or bad.
 
I sing to my husband.
I hum all the time.
I hum songs to put the kids to sleep every night.
 
Music is also my favorite form of worship.
When I need to feel closer to Him or need guidance, I turn to songs of worship.
I did just that this morning as soon as I sat down at the office.
And now I don't feel as overwhelmed.
I feel better.
I am in peace again.
 
Music is my lifeline, I suppose.
Music and Writing.
Yes...that's pretty much what makes me happy.
Oh, wait...
Coffee.
Coffee is very important.
 
You know the simple things in life.
:)
 
Oh and I'd love to know...
What song(s) just do it for you?

Hey Lovey! You're commenting! You just made me happier than...well, me with a Chestnut Praline Latte. (Yes, now you know what to order for me if we ever go to Starbucks - lol)
