It might be something in the air. It may be that it's almost the holidays, or it may be that there are countless blog carnivals about it. Whatever it is, I've been really pondering the things I am most thankful for. Thoughts of love and life and laughter swirl and swirl round and round. How does one narrow it down to one specific thing to write about?

This morning as my hands were deep in the soap bubbles and my girls rather.. danced their way through breakfast it hit me!

The one constant in my life for as long as I can remember.


Music is in me and all around me. I hear it in the drip of the faucet, the click click of the keyboard, and the rustle of the leaves.

His voice becomes clear in the words of a song learned long ago. Comfort, peace, joy. Praise over flowing.

Swelling from within it speaks of the love I'm feeling, the loneliness soon to pass, or the wonders of His creation.

It causes my head to bop, my hips to shake, and my toes to tap.

God has so blessed me through music. As I stood with my fingers in the sudsy water and watched my children, I see it alive within them. They can't sit still when the peppy disco starts to play and find it impossible to keep silent during the moving crescendo's of our favorite songs. They, too, feel it, breath it, and sense it.

It's the gift He gave, and the one that continues to give and bless. What a wonderful Father we have!
