Music. Such a broad word with so many different genres, artists and songs. There one hit artists and the artists who have been around for decades. From my perspective I feel like music can heal, no matter what genre you choose. There are only a few genres I like to listen to and no matter the day I am having the music seems to always speak to me. I don’t know if it ever happens to any of you, but I know if I am listening to the radio a song will come on and I think to myself, “I really needed that.” Some will chalk it up to a coincidence, but I choose to think of it as God speaking to me. Whether it’s a bad day, if I am sad, or everything is going great I listen to music and I feel like we are going through that certain situation together.
The genres I enjoy are oldies, country, Christian and new age country. Yes, I do feel like country music today is way different than what it use to be but I do enjoy some of it and so do our kids. Music not only helps heal but it also brings families together. We have a blast in our house or in the car because we blare music and dance around the Livingroom. Our kids have so much fun and I love seeing their smiles and thinking daddy dances silly (no rhythm) but he is a good sport. Music changes perspectives on so many things and sometimes it really makes you think, it’s powerful.
Please just take the time to listen to the words.
