Just so you know…I am taking a blogging class. The goal is to write something every day for a month. This is day 3 and the assignment is to share with you my 3 favorite songs and what they mean to me. Here it is:

Music makes the world go ’round! Isn’t that what “they” always say? From the time I was a wee little one, the joy of cheerful happy music has bathed my soul in joy! It has lifted my spirits, and spoken my thoughts out loud in a way I never could.

We have just celebrated Resurrection Sunday(AKA Easter). From the time I came to know how much Jesus loved me and that he died for me the words and rhythm of this song echo in my head. It seems I have almost always been in church, when I have heard this and sung along. Even more than singing this song in church, I love to hear my Son sing this a capella. It warms my heart, reminds me of God’s love and care for me. This is the first verse, and the only one I know by heart.
[On a hill far away, stood an old rugged cross, the emblem of suffering and shame; And I love that old cross, where the dearest and best, for a world of lost sinners was slain. So I’ll Cherish the old rugged cross, Till my trophies at last I lay down. I will cling to the old rugged cross, and exchange it someday for a crown.]

It’s hard to choose 3 favorites since I have never really thought about it…but I love the upbeat sound of Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree. It always makes me feel cheerful, optimistic and feel like dancing. If you want to listen to this click, this link:

My final favorite is Hallelujah, but sung with different words…The word Hallelujah, just totally belongs to God and in my humble opinion, the words should go along with it! The music lifts your soul into the heavens and God’s Glory just permeates the atmosphere… Enjoy!

Hallelujah Easter version

Yes, there are many more songs that make me laugh, make me smile, make me cry, lift my heart, open my eyes, and bring joy to my life…but these for today, are my favorites!
