Do you sing?
"A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer - it sings because it has a song.' Maya Angelou
My dad's favorite song was:
Joyful, joyful we adore thee
God of glory, Lord of love
Hearts unfold like flowers before thee
Opening to the sun above
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness
Drive the doubt away
Giver of immortal gladness
Fill us with the light of day.
This is my song of choice to start each morning and especially in the shower! It truly makes a remarkable difference in my entire day. Do you have a favorite song? Music is empowering!
Everyone has a favorite song. Some may be from years before or some may be new ones that are popular today. Different times in life may call for different favorite songs. Yet we still all have that special one that is the top favorite. I love singing "Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay.... My oh my what a wonderful day..." with my grandchildren. At Christmas the car rings out loud with Christmas carols and Christmas songs. Again, the favorites for the season!
If you are ever tired... try standing with your legs apart and your hands on your hips. Then burst out in your favorite song and begin to dance. Energy will return.
Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples. Psalm 96:1-3
