Indian Boundary Lake

Indian Boundary Lake Cherokee National Forest

 Thanks for joining me for Wordless Wednesday.  I took today’s photo off Cherohala Skyway at the Indian Boundary Recreation Area. In my opinion, this beautiful lake nestled in the mountains has a striking resemblance of Jordan Pond on Bar Island, Maine in Acadia National Park.

Not pictured in the above photo is a foot trail that circles the lake. Below is another gorgeous view from this woodsy access trail. Isn’t this peaceful?

Let’s flashback Wayback Wednesday alphabet style continuing with the letter “A“!

I’ve Got The Music


Music is the universal language. We don’t need to understand the words to interrupt the way it makes us feel. Music evokes emotions. It makes you happy. It makes you sad. It lifts you up. It takes you down.

Music excites the senses. The taste of music to the ear can be sweet or bitter.

 

 

The same music and yet the so different how the mind perceives it.  The sight of music to the eye is how you perceive your day, just like with this music evoking both extremes in one’s day happy and bright or sad and grey.

The touch of music is the way your body moves…

 …swaying hands

 

 ….snapping fingers

 

 …tapping toes

 

 

….dancing feet

Even the earth moves ….

Some would argue that music is an evil force working to destroy our society. I certainly agree there is corruption in some types of music, but not all music is wicked. Like all things, God placed the love of music within each of us as far back as the beginning of time.

“Why didn’t you tell me, so I could send you away with joy and singing to the music of tambourines and harps?  
Genesis 31:27

The Bible makes many references to music and I believe our God who loves music so must have wanted us to love it, too.

The power of music is really a beautiful thing. Come on now and feel that beat!

1. Name a song, what music makes me you come alive?

2. Name a song, what music makes you really sad?

BONUS: Name a song, what music feels you with inspiration?

Welcome to the 89th edition of Monday’s Music Moves Me!

This month, cheers to our honorary co-conductor RunDMT.  Thanks Denise for joining us!

Let’s get this dance party started, shall we? I’m eager to begin by following you as the Love Train pulls in at your stop. This week’s theme is “freebie” pick. So, have fun!

Angela from Time Out Mommy introduced me to this long-lost song from 1990.

Phillip Phillips introduced this song to me on Idol Wednesday night.

A.I. hopeful performed this song earlier this season. Oddly enough I like the slow seductive version over the original by Bobby Vee.  That’s surprising for me to like the remark more. What do you think?

In closing, let me dedicate this song to Moms everywhere.

 

That’s it for now folks. I hope you enjoyed my Monday’s Music Moves Me line up.

Thanks Marie!

This week’s theme is “Your Pick“.  I had a completely different set of music videos ready to go yesterday when I decided to go another direction. This week’s freebie choice actually has a theme. I bet you’ll figure this one out in a …


 

 

 

Did you catch my theme? Do you dare guess who I rooted for in Super Bowl XLVI? You’re absolutely right….

 

Congratulations…
