MY FAVORITE THINGS
Day 26 - Listen to music!
Listen to worship music every moment that is humanly possible. Fill your life and your home with the music of His presence. Sing along with the great hymns of the faith and the contemporary lyrics of today. One of the most important choices that you will make every day of this new year is to spend some time with worship music turned up, your hands in the air and your voice lifted in praise!
Music has been an integral part of my life since I was a little girl. I learned to sing and play the piano before I could even complete a full sentence. There is nothing that calms my heart like music.
There is nothing that causes me to dream like music.
There is nothing that excites my soul like music.
Although worship music and the great hymns of the faith are my primary choice of musical preference, I also listen to other types of music throughout my daily routine.
I love to listen to Broadway show tunes! The music of Rogers and Hammerstein and Irving Berlin never fails to put a spring in my step.
I love to listen to the classical compositions of men like Gershwin and Chopin. Enlarge your musical vocabulary and learn the joy of having classical music playing in the background of your life.
Discover the joy of unlocking an untapped musical arena with a new artist. Ask your friends and family members if they could suggest an artist that you have never before known. I have recently found the music of “The Annie Moses Band” and have thoroughly loved this family of Juilliard-educated musicians who give new meaning to the word “creative”!
One of my musical addictions on the computer is to go to
and create my own station. I simply type in the name of one of my favorite artists or composers and what ensues is a gold mine of musical wealth!
Fill your home with music. Fill your car with music. Fill your shower with music. Fill your heart with music. Music is a sweet gift from heaven meant to enrich our lives with a sense of daily delight and creativity. Don’t miss the extraordinary depth that only music is able to bring to a weary soul.
