I've been a little MIA for the past few weeks. Looking back at my calendar, I'm not really sure why...maybe a little busy, maybe just not feeling the blogging mood. At any rate, I'm back (I guess) and ready to roll out another "Things I Love Thursday" post.
Being the music lover that I am, people often ask a question to which there is no answer: "What's your favorite song of all time?" Last week, I was getting bored with the playlists on my iPod, so I decided that I'd make a playlist of all my absolute favorite songs. The only criteria was that I had to love the song so much, that I wouldn't skip over it when it played. And if I didn't know I liked music before, I definitely know now, because FIVE HUNDRED songs (or 26 hours worth of music) later, the play list was complete! I really couldn't believe it, but thought I'd test myself by playing the playlist and seeing how long it would take before I started skipping songs. I'm on song 232 and still haven't skipped anything...not because I felt like I was being challenged to love all those songs, doggonne it, but because I really do love all that music! But, I think the thing I love the most is the variety in which that playlist contains. I have it on shuffle so that the genres and artists are all mixed up. I love when a song such as "Revelation Song" by Kari Jobe offers such an intense moment for worship comes on and then is followed by "Fishin' In the Dark" by The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. After every song, there's a brief moment when I almost hold my breath to see what's gonna happen next and it usually causes me to laugh out loud!
So, the next time someone asks what my favorite song is, maybe I'll start that playlist, hand them my iPod, and tell them I'll see them in 26 hours.
