I don't mean to be morbid. Well, maybe I do because we all die. We can't and won't get around that. Anyway.
Today's song(s) are to be on my memorial service playlist. For real. Yes, I'm being 100% serious. I've actually told several people that and now I'm telling you so there's no reason they won't appear. Today's song(s) are a twofer...sort of. The second one is a sequel to the first. They go together so together they must stay. :)
If (ha, I totally used that word again and we all know it is a gross understatement when it comes to who I'm about to mention) Steven Curtis Chapman is my favorite solo artist then Casting Crowns is my favorite group. By far. Their lyrical content is rich, deep, and resonates with me on so many levels.
Lifesong/And Now My Lifesong Sings is my heart's cry. I want my lifesong to bring pleasure to God's heart. I want my lifesong to bring knowledge of him. I want my lifesong to be a reflection of what God has done in me and how I chose to live that out. And Now My Lifesong Sings is an update of sorts of my most favorite song, Amazing Grace. At the end of my life I want to be marked by God's amazing grace. I hope I am. See God's amazing grace is available to all of us but only some of us will actually allow our lives to be marked by it. Oh that at the end of my days people will be able to look at me and know that my life was marked by his amazing grace. And while I'm living I want all that I do and say to be marked by his amazing grace as well, that's the melody AND harmony of my lifesong. I sure don't get it right all the time, some days I am really out of tune - painfully so but it is my heart's desire and mission.
So, what's the tune and theme of your lifesong? :)
And Now My Lifesong Sings
