Today’s post should be a fun one. I am linking up with Andrea at Momfessionals for Show & Tell Tuesday: ‘My Life’s Mix Tape’.
I probably should have started thinking about this post a month ago instead of a couple days before I shared it. But procrastination and life won out this time. Today I want to share a few songs with you that I have loved through the years. From songs I used to sing as a kid to songs that have spoke straight to my heart.
It is bound to be random.
If my life had a soundtrack here are a few songs that might make the cut.
I was raised in Kansas in a little cow-town called Baxter Springs.
So it’s no surprise that my music roots were pure country.
I loved this song and would sing it over and over along with my cassette tape in my room.
Go ahead and laugh, I would.
Next up is the one and only boy band I have ever liked.
I have zero recollection of why this band was so cool in my 8 year old mind. But I still have a New Kids On The Block dress that would probably fit Marissa laying around as evidence of my love for this band.
The years went on and the next song I remember loving came in the mid 90’s
As a “confused and conflicted” teenager this song felt so appropriate on more than one occasion.
A few years later I fell in love with Jesus and a band called Waterdeep.
I became a bit of a groupie for years and years going to any shows that I could.
The words of their songs spoke of truth in such a bold way, I couldn’t get enough of them. They were pretty much the only band I listened to for years.
In my mid 20’s when my grandma passed away I went through a bit of an emotional patch.
Going back to my roots stirred up some emotions for me and this song always makes my eyes water.
Then in 2011 after the tornado it felt like all hope was lost.
But we still had joy. No song summed up exactly how I felt quite like this one.
Over the next year we saw that we were never once alone through the trials we endured rebuilding our life.
This song spoke everything we felt and more.
Since the closing of our church one year ago there has been one album that has spoke to the very core of who I am and where our life is, giving me life and hope when all felt loss
Words and music are powerful friends.
That is something that I started learning when I was a 15 year old girl who fell in love with a band.
But if I had to sum it all up with one song, I’d choose this one.
What would your life’s soundtrack look like?
