Been listening to lots of music lately. Tooling around the house, working in the yard, driving in the car. Love music. It can evoke so many emotions and bring back memories.
Some of my favorite right now are Zac Brown Band. Love their melody and story telling. Lots of "let it go, no hurry, quiet your mind, get right with the Lord, etc". Good messages. One of my favorites on their newest cd is Knee Deep. Such a happy song!
Also loving anything from Michael Buble'. He sounds so much like Frank Sinatra which brings back good memories of my childhood.
I find myself also listening to a lot of Julio Iglesias (he is so much better than his son!). His voice is so rich and complex. Love his accent when he is singing english word songs and enjoy the songs that are in a language I don't understand.
Found some old Dixie Chick cd's. Wow, they really could sing in harmony. Pretty cool. My fav is Never Say Die. Reminds me of me and my husbands relationship. Such a well written song. My husband and I slow danced to it a couple of months ago. Very nice.
I have been struggling lately with feeling sorry for myself. Why? I dont know considering I am such a lucky woman. What a baby I can be sometimes. Why am Ietting my MS infect the present? It may end up changing my future but I simply cannot let it change the here and now for the worst.
So, I try and do the things that pull me out of my negative thoughts...music, working in the yard (my azaleas are starting to bud!!), and just doing things that give me the most pleasure. Love, love, love surrounds me.
I had to give up my weekly bible study due to the demands of it. It required so much studying and it always seemed to conflict with my have to do things. As a result it has been a struggle remaining and abiding in God's Word. It's hard to feel as close to Him when I am not spending as much time with Him as I know I should. Still I talk to Him constantly, I am not always listening though. That has to change. That will change.
Maybe this is why I am struggling somewhat. I need to go back to my source, my Creator. It's only when I am close to Him that I am able to find the meaning of so much suffering in this groaning world of ours.
