You’ve probably noted that I have a serious passion for music. I honestly believe that our lives are not complete unless there is a soundtrack to go with it. How would movies be without the music in the background? What would long drives be without tunes to share the journey? Music catalogs my memories. It surrounds specific moments in my life. I can hear a song and take you directly to a snapshot in my memory. Maybe it’s a sickness, but I don’t know any other way.
So that brings me to the point of this post. What’s your lifesong? What is that song or songs that you would name as those that define a memory or how you want your life to be remembered. Need some examples? As you can imagine…I have several.
“Arms Wide Open” (imagine that) by Creed
“When All is said and Done” by Geoff Moore
“My Hometown” by Bruce Springsteen
These are just a few of the many that I have. I recently added another one. This one shot straight to the top of the chart. It struck me the moment I heard it. It has been on repeat for hours at a time today. There is something about the line “I want to be the same man that will serve you then like I serve you now“. Awesome.
The song is “Stand Amazed” by 33 Miles. If you don’t already have a “Lifesong”, then this might be a good place and time to start. I don’t mind sharing!
