Currently Playing – So You Can Cry

I’ve been meaning to come though with more “fun stuff,” so here we go!

I’m a SERIOUS music lover.

I play music almost EVERY day. Usually repeating one album or song for hours at a time. (My husband tolerates my musical obsession… he LOVES me y’all ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ)

For the past week, I’ve rediscovered my love for Ne-Yo.

I’m learning more of his new music, but “Year of the Gentleman” is STILL my FAVORITE album.

The Simple Songs

Thank God for the simple songs. 

I’m up early this morning in full out crafting/wedding prep mode and this song came up randomly on an automated playlist. 

If you’ve been connected to me via social media, you’ve probably observed my love for music. All types, genres and from all periods. I live my life in lyrics and those closest to me are familiar with my daily references to song lyrics in most of my conversations. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thinking back on many of my most difficult periods, it was my WORSHIP– the “simple songs”– that helped me get through. 

My heart remembered one of THE MOST difficult days, when I called my mom to vent and get some encouragement and her response was to start singing,  “I Won’t Complain.”  A simple song. 

Those lyrics were really all I needed to hear.  I thank God for a relationship like that.  Where one knows the song that can minister to someone else. 

But what if we didn’t have and continue to sing those SIMPLE SONGS? 

Needless to say, this song really blessed my soul this morning. Sometimes those reminders come just when we need them and I know it’s not by coincidence.  

I shared it on my Instagram page and wanted to also include it here along with a link to the video. 

I pray it is a blessing and encouragement for you this morning. 

๐ŸŽถ ๐ŸŽถ….The simple song of life simply says, โ€œYou SO LOVED the WORLD, That you gave your life for EVERY man, little boy, and girl.โ€ 

In this quest of life when tempests rage,I fall on my knees and say, 

โ€œLord donโ€™t take my simple song awayโ€.๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’– 

….In this quest of life when tempests rage, I fall on my knees and say, ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’– 

โ€œLord donโ€™t take my simple song awayโ€…… Songs like 

๐ŸŽถ…”AMAZING GRACE, how SWEET the sound, that SAVED a WRETCH like me”…๐ŸŽถ ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ˜ญ 

Songs like, ๐ŸŽถ”Oooh we, ooh wee child, things are gonna get easier”….๐ŸŽถ ๐Ÿ™

Songs like, ๐ŸŽถ”We got to find a way, to bring some LOVIN’ here today”….๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’— 

โ€œLord donโ€™t take my simple song awayโ€….

 It may be simple to you, but it’s mine. All mine. All mine!….

Lord we THANK YOU for the SIMPLE SONGS! ๐ŸŽถ 


The Things I Wishย 

I’ve mentioned this before, but the Lord often ministers to me through music.

This song was just on my heart so strong.

I can’t recall the first time that I heard it, but I do remember hearing it play as my mom and I were driving back home from what felt like my 100th college day trip to UNC. ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

EVERYONE just KNEW that I should go to UNC. Everyone….except me.
