The Day the Music Died

To steal the phrase from a popular song – “The Day the Music Died,” I have to admit in defeat that I can’t keep up with writing about 1 song per week. I just don’t have the time. The trouble is – I have lots to say and if I use up my available writing time to write about 1 song…

Song of the Week #9 – Flawless by Mercy Me

Well…This week was busy. Almost too busy to post my song of the week, but I don’t want to miss so here it is. This song doesn’t require too much explanation. It’s just a song I’ve heard on Christian radio for a few years, but it wasn’t until I saw the video that it really stuck with me. Have a…

Song of the Week #4 – I Hope You Dance

This song lacks the historical and spiritual significance that the first 3 songs have but still had deep meaning in my life at a previous time. From 1999 to 2001 and I was the proud owner of a struggling small-town grocery store. I usually played the local radio station quietly to help pass the time and make the store feel…
