Yesterday my son, Colton and I were getting ready to leave the house and he had a tune in his head. He sang it to me and asked “Is that a song?” I responded “I don’t know it, but it sounds good.” Our conversation continued about the lyrics and with a couple of changed words, he had the start of a devotional song. He grabbed his phone and recorded the melody and words. Later that day, we are at my daughters and the three of us work more on the song adding harmonies to it.
This is one of the many things I love about music. Over the years, I’ve enjoyed singing with my kids, creating songs with them, and a few times even performing with them.
Music is a big blessing in my life. It is one of the things that has bonded my children and me. It’s been an enjoyable form of entertainment to me. It’s been an expressive outlet for me through songwriting and singing. And music is one of my favorite ways to worship the Lord.
I’m extremely thankful for music and all the blessings I have received from it. So, today I give thanks for music and all that it adds to my life.

Until next time
