Listening to music.... late at night... tired... and now tears sting my eyes. Music just brings it out of me! In the best way though.... I was listening to 'Your love oh Lord' by third day and it was a song that Preston's best friend Tim and his beautiful wife Sarah sang at our wedding, but it also holds so much more emotion for me, other memories.
And then yesterday I was driving in the car by myself and instead of listening to our beloved Raffi I got to listen to my music! I heard this song, "unashamed love" by Ten sheckel shirt and that was a song we sung at Briercrest that reminded me of when I first starting to date Preston. I remember singing that song and actually singing it to God and not being distracted by the hottie next to me! I was always distracted when it came to guys, but when it was right I wasn't, God was first for a change. Isn't it "funny" how everything in life sails so much smoother when God is number 1?
The next song was an old one too... "everything" by Lifehouse... six minutes of complete reflection. That song takes me all the way back to my first concert in highschool, but it has so much meaning to me now as well.
Maybe all this to say, music is powerful! It can break you and bring forth the river of tears, it can make you laugh and dance and at times look like an idiot (maybe that's just me). I know for me God has used music to express my heart when I had no words. So I don't live on every word my ipod whispers into my ear, but lately I have been loving the power music has in my life.
God thank you for working in my life even through music.... you are breathtaking.
