I will admit that I am sleep deprived this morning so hopefully this will make sense. I have been thinking about this all morning.
I love music. It was the way I learned my multiplication facts, how I calmed myself down as a kid, and how I praise God most often. I was listening to my ipod this morning thinking about the different songs I have downloaded. I started thinking about the songs that mean the most to me. So here are some songs that mean so much to me (in no particular order)
1). Praise You In This Storm by the Casting Crowns- this song is what helped me get through the loss of my baby girl in 2007.
2). Happy Am I- this is a song we have sang at church since Todd was little. He loved this song and I can remember him singing as loud as he could "ME MY".
3). It Is Well With My Soul- This song was sang at my grandmother's funeral. My mom and her siblings sang it so beautifully in honor of their mom. I still can't get through this song without crying.
4). Life Is A Highway by Rascal Flatts and I Just Can't Wait To Be King- Todd loved the movie Cars and The Lion King we would sing and dance to these songs over and over.
5). The Lily Of The Valley- On old song that makes me laugh. My brother and I used a Howdy-Dowdy puppet and put on a puppet show and this is one of the songs he sang. It was one of the most hilarious things my brother and I did.
6). I'm Yours by Jason Mraz- this song would quiet Jackson down as a baby and I heard it often! I remember his curled up in my arms relaxing as I sang this song.
7) Pachabel's Cannon- the song played in our wedding. It was a day I married my best friend and my soul mate! It makes me happy to hear it play.
8). It's So Hard To Say Goodbye by Boys To Men- The song they played at my brother's graduation. It still makes me sad to hear that song.
9). Purer In Heart Oh God (and many other hymns)- my mom would sing or whistle hymns while she worked. As a kid, I can member her voice singing. It makes me think of my childhood.
10). Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice- We can't leave out such an icon of my days!
I could go on and on. I love the meaning of song and the way they impact our lives. So, what songs bring back memories for you?
