I love music. You’ve probably heard me talk about it before. I love music. I almost constantly have a song running through my head. I will hear bits of conversations and immediately think of a song. I listen to music when I’m sad or happy. When I’m mad or bored. Frequently, I will listen to music instead of watching tv. It has been a constant in my life for as long as I can remember.
So, I started thinking that it would be fun to create a soundtrack for my life. The different events in my life that have altered me somehow. The different memories that I have, the different people who have been in and out. I won’t share with you all of my memories, but I will share with you my soundtrack. Maybe some of these songs will take you back to another place and time too. Happy listening!

I am a big fan of words. I love song lyrics, Bible verses, books, and quotes. I love the words that make me laugh. I love the words that make me cry. I love the words that make me think. I love the words that resonate deep in my soul.
I think that words are one of the most powerful tools we posses. My heart has been broken because of words. My spirit has taken flight because of words. My smile has been unstoppable because of words. My future was decided because of words. They are so often spoken without thought; despite the profound effect they can have over our lives. One of my favorite thing about words is that they can mean something different to different people. They can mean something different to the same person at different periods in their life.
I have a notebook full of words. Song lyrics, quotes, etc… that I have been writing in for a big part of my life. Each time I hear or read something that touches me, I write it in there. It’s like the spoken soundtrack of my life. I love to take it out and read it and let those words reach into my soul all over again. I would love to share with you one of my favorites.
“The heart has reason which reason cannot understand” – Blaise Pascal
Do you have the appreciation for words that I do? What do these words mean to you? Feel free to share some of your favorite words with me. Maybe they’ll go in my book too.
