confession: i like dancing with the stars.  my mom came out from ca for a visit two years ago.  she was already an addict and now i’m addicted. 

confession:  i’m a kim kardashian fan.  i think she is gorgeous and has a sweetness about her.  yes, i watch her reality show (2 confessions in that one 1- i’m watching a reality show, 2-hers.)

but (no pun intended) please,  the song she danced to tonight was just tacky considering her aka is the tush!  “baby got back” by sir mixalot.  i was embarrassed!

the end

have you ever tried to list your all-time favorite songs?  what if you had to list your top 5?  yes, just 5.  i’ve been trying to do this for days.  music has been such an important element in my life. 

i have so many great memories of music/songs, and bands included. songs are like smells.  they have the ability to take me back in time, energize me, chill me out, put me to sleep, make me grouchy (country), laugh, dance.  depending on the song, it can make me melancholy when remembering passed loved ones – or happy!   i love it when i wake up singing (usually praise) – starts my day off better (because mornings are cruel).

remember when…mom snagged my motley crew tape (yes, i said tape) -she never gave it back.  she was mad dad bought it , after she said no. (divorced parents).

remember when…the first time i heard “white wedding” (and fell in love with) billy idol – on my way to a dentist appointment?

remember when…the first time i heard “i can only imagine”. how i felt while listening to the words.  who introduced me to the song and how that person is still a catalyst in my spiritual growth.

at my ripe old age of 30-ish, i sometimes wonder what songs i want played at my funeral.  yes, i have a list, back of my Bible.  no, shout at the devil is not on the list, but the red hot chili peppers are…wouldn’t that be fun?  you guys would have to listen to my favorites. and no you can’t turn it off!  or change it.  or turn it down. 

can you list your top 5?  let me know.

why?…because it’s my favorite number.

philippians 4:6 ” do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”

i believe in, and pray strongly.  it is very important to me to be connected to God, focus my thoughts on him, and seek his guidance & wisdom, amongst other reasons.  sometimes the other reasons are for him to bail me out and give some relief.  for me, prayer is always with praise and thankfulness.  but there are times when i feel i can’t express my love and gratitude enough to him.

psalm 69:30 “i will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.”

…especially when he surrounds me with family and friends that take care of me (us) in so many ways. now i just have to learn how to accept God’s provisions and gifts humbly, with grace and joy!

thank you friends.  thank you so much.
