Song About Me

Hey Everybody,
    So, y'all are probably wondering why everything in this blog is in some for of song lyrics, or maybe you are new to the blog and haven't noticed yet, but here is the deal. Ever since I was a little kid I have loved music. There was always music on in the house and numerous home videos feature me and my siblings singing and dancing on the coffee table, or making our own band in my brother's room as well as being in musicals and public performances.
    Over the past couple of years I have come to associate songs with different occurrences in my life. Songs come on the radio and I immediately flash back to different periods of time. Sometimes it is general, like a year, and sometimes it is a very specific, vivid memory. My journals are full of song lyrics, and song is usually how I best process emotion.
    Through wanting to share what God has been showing me and taking me through with others this blog was born. A combination of the stories of my life combined with the songs that bring those lessons to memory.

We all have a song that somehow stamped our lives
Takes us to another place and time

So I go back to a pew,preacher, and a choir
Singin bout God, brimstone, and fire
And the smell of Sunday chicken after church
And I go back to the loss of a real good friend
And the sixteen summers I shared with him
Now "Only The Good Die Young" stops me in my tracks
Everytime I hear that song
I go back
