Dance {5 Minute Friday}

In my mind you can’t have dance without music.  They go together like peanut butter and jelly or macaroni & cheese with sugar!  Of course I could dance to the music in my head but it’s just not the same!

I love to dance. I used to love going to clubs with my friends just to dance! My husband does not.  To him even with music there is no reason to dance!  At weddings he will slow dance but that’s it. No fast-dancing, line-dancing or club dancing for him!

I’ll never forget the most special dance I had with him.  Believe it or not it wasn’t our wedding dance although that ranks up there.  We had just started dating after being best friends for over six years.  We were college students with really no money to do more than go to the movies.

One night as he was dropping me off he asked me to get out of the car. He popped open his trunk, put in a CD and played our song.  We danced in the moonlight, on my parents driveway at 2am.  It still is one of the sweetest, most amazing moments in our lives.

In case you want to hear…here is our song. Believe it or not he’s not a country music fan either yet this has always been our song…this guy amazes me!!

Moved to tears.

Have you ever been moved to tears unexpectedly? Have you ever felt the hand of God move in an instant so quickly it almost makes you drop to your knees? Have you ever had a song touch you in such a way that you’ve had to drop what you are doing to listen?

I love music. I believe it’s good for our soul. It can bring people together in ways that other things can’t. I’m pretty passionate about music. My oldest is already taking piano lessons.  I love all music genres. I love Christian, rock, heavy metal, hip-hop, R&B, country, classical and so on. Of course I don’t love every song I hear but I do like a wide variety.

It’s not uncommon for me to have the radio on all day long. I do other things while listening. I’m often inspired by what I hear. My boys come running when they hear one they love so we stop what we are doing and dance! My mood can be changed in an instant by hearing a favorite tune.  (Of course with the kiddos around I monitor what I’m listening to.)

Last week this song came on and it literally made me stop in my tracks. First, I was in shock that it’s such a powerful song on mainstream radio.  I had to look it up because I wanted to hear it again immediately.  Not only is she one of my favorite artists and mentions my hometown in the song – it was exactly what I needed.

The Lord was reminding me that I can’t do it all on my own. I was taking on so much that I felt I was being dragged down by it all. The things that mattered to me most were being pushed aside.  It helped me be reminded I can cast my cares on Him. 

1 Peter 5:7  Cast all your care upon him; for he careth for you.  (KJV)

By the time the song was over I was in tears.  So powerful, so true.

I chose a version without the video so you can close your eyes & listen.  Is it more than just a song to you?  Is it what you need to hear? 

Was it what you needed?  Were you moved to tears?
