What makes you, you?
What has the Lord dropped into your life that pressed and shaped you into the person you are now?
Music? Dance? A book? A place? A person? What’s your passion, what moves you to tears, makes you love till it hurts? What books have made your imagination soar? What sights have made you gasp?
Someone suggested putting together a “word cloud,” a place to list words, phrases, songs, people, places or things that pertain to what makes up who I have become during my lifetime. So far In my word cloud there are three hundred and eighty-nine random words—only a fraction of everything that’s made me who I am. Nevertheless, they help describe the seasons of my life. A great big cloud full-to-bursting of words.
It was a fun exercise and made me think. Try it!
I’ll list my words a little at a time and begin with some music–songs, singers, anthems, hymns, ballads, classical, timeless and now-music–the tip of the cloud bank of words about the music that’s filled my life.
Some of the music below is linked so you can listen NOW.
Crystal Blue Persuasion; Riders on the Storm; Singin’ in the Rain; Isaac Hayes; Holy, Holy, Holy; How Great Thou Art; Enya; Peter and the Wolf; Rhapsody in Blue; Finlandia; Lord of the Dance; Josh Grogan; Phantom of the Opera; Barry White; old movie musicals; and a zillion more.
People, nature and animals, movies, books, places, the senses, and more.
Do we have some music loves in common?
