I’ve always loved music. My maternal grandfather was very musical – he played guitar and mandolin, as well as the harmonica, and other instruments. He had a group that performed on the radio (back when radio shows were live broadcasts). My paternal grandfather loved to sing.
My dad can’t carry a tune in a bucket (bless his heart). I know my mom worried that I’d inherit that (lack of) talent. But, I grew up listening to her sing to me, and there was always music playing in our house (at least the way I remember it). As a matter of fact, there was a time when I wouldn’t go to sleep at night without hearing the soundtrack to Love Story being played (on the record player).
It took a near-death experience as an adult before I actually got up the nerve to sing in public. My best friend Sue and I made our debut at our church, singing a duet in a Christmas cantata. From there, we went on to sing at our own church, as well as various other venues in our area (including ladies retreats, carnivals, etc.) over the years. I miss singing with her.
Last week one day, the topic of the 30 Day Blog Challenge was to post the first 10 random songs that came up on our iPods – mine contains quite a variety of music. I love Christian contemporary, but can still appreciate and enjoy many other types of music as well.
So, I’m particularly thankful, as I sit here listening to K-Love streaming live through my computer, for MUSIC.
