Music is such an important part of life around here. We are always singing, playing or listening to something. Lately, there hasn't been much music in our lives. I gave my iPod to Emma. And then the music files got deleted from my iPhone. So I haven't had my ear buds plugged in for some time. Life has been so crazy no one has regularly practiced piano or instruments for several weeks. I have even noticed, with the exception of Carmella and Elisabeth singing "Let It Go" every waking moment, we aren't even singing throughout the day as we normally do. Perhaps, everyone is too preoccupied? I don't know. But there it is. This occurred to me the other day and I pointed it out to the girls. They said they had noticed the same thing. Which led to a discussion about how much we connect with the Lord through our music and how much it buoys us up. And a discussion about how we need to get music back into our daily life. As if God wanted to drive the point home, two friends sent us links to songs they thought would be encouraging to us. Hey friends, I know this seems like a small thing in the grand scheme of your day, but it was big to us. Thanks for taking the time to share.
