The Music Connection — 8 Comments

  1. Janis, I too, am often moved by music. It amazes me how often I will find myself humming & when I pay attention, it is an old song which came back to me. Sometimes even as I am writing a post, a song comes to me. I am so grateful our God has given so many creative and beautiful words to deposit His Word into our lives. So glad you shared!

  2. Janis, this was so lovely (and it was wonderful to see you in Blog Land!). I too am transported by music. It’s one reason why I love the old hymns. The stories behind the lyrics are such testimonies to the faith of those who have preceded us, and such a lasting testimony to the One who will ever be the same.


  3. Welcome to the write31days party! So glad you joined in. What a great topic too. I love, love, love music and love signing praise to Him. Actually, Christian music is all that I now listen to. It just soothes my soul and keeps me connected to Him. Blessings to you, sweet friend. I look forward to following along. xoxo

  4. Those oldies had words that meant something and I too loved those old songs. I also love the old hymns and although some of the new chorus words are nice, they should not replace the hymns of old. Thank you for sharing with us here at Tell me a Story.

    • Hi Hazel,
      Thank you for dropping in. I really enjoy the old hymns as well. It’s fun to hear that you enjoyed those old songs, too. I agree with you that they had more meaning than the “noise” you hear over the speaker systems in grocery and department stores. It drives me out the door pretty quickly! Saves money, though.
      Blessings and love,

  5. My husband and I actually had that song at our wedding 29 years ago. We both had loved it for a long time. And, any time I’m reading Psalm this jumps at me. Made me smile. Thanks.

    • I love when I hear the songs that were played at our wedding. Especially the one we selected for when I walked down the aisle–“Ode to Joy” or Beethoven’s 9th Symphony. Glad this made you smile, Joanne. We just had our 38th anniversary in June. Praise God for His blessings.
