Soothes the Savage Beast


I am realizing how big of a connection music has with my heart. Try like a straight shot.

Maybe it's because I don't have a piano to tinker around on anymore. Or maybe because whenever I took out my violin when Noah was a baby, the sound would send him over the edge. Or maybe because now days are filled with "Jack and Jill" or "ABC's"... whatever the reason, I feel like I have lost a big part of my "feelers" because of a divorcing from daily immersion in music.

Recently. I have begun to tap back into this power source. I realized that I never feel closer to God than when I am in a worship service. But, then wondered at my lack of motivation to do daily devotions.

Power solution: I now go to youtube and play whatever worship song pops into my head--in Spanish or English. While it's playing, I get down on my knees and begin a time of prayer... which is all I need to get me more than ready to dive into the depths of God's Word!

I don't know if I'm the only momma who ever feels this (ha ha)... but, recently it has been hard to get my sweaty, spit-upped-on, just-mopped-the-whole-house-and-am-up-to-my-elbows-in-dishwater self into a romantic frame of mind. Don't get me wrong. I love my man. He's the best. But, remember that quivery, overpowering feeling of romance that was there "back in the day"??

I miss that.

So, I am now on youtube creating a playlist called "cantos romanticos". They are all the songs of our first days together. When where we are now was only a dream seperated by thousands of miles and an uncooperative visa office. It was when we were only consumed with thoughts of each other.

My heart is singing.


Don't just sit there... say something! :)
