Speak to me in Music

My husband has been involved in the music industry for most of his life, in fact, in our home town his name is synonymous with music.  It is woven into the very fiber of his being, and to try to separate him from music would be like asking him to walk without ever lifting up his feet!
Music is a universal language.  It connects people across all races and language barriers.  Music is so old that its origins are impossible to determine, it has been around for far longer than the earliest recorded history of mankind.  I would go as far as to say that it is as old as sound itself.  One just has to listen to the song of the birds to know this statement of mine can't be too far off the mark.  I can only imagine the spectacular sounds that might have accompanied those first moments of creation when "the earth was a shapeless, chaotic mass, with the Spirit of God brooding over the dark vapors...." (Gen 1:2  from The Living Bible)
Every culture known to man has some form of music.  Historians are of the opinion that the earliest musical instrument was the human voice.  Music has the ability to engage all our senses and reaches into our deepest recesses.  Music can both calm us and bring us in touch our emotions. Through music, hymns and praise we get a little closer to the heartbeat of God.  To imagine a world without music is impossible.  I believe that the beauty of music is a gift from God.  Praise Him!

Please tell me what YOUR favourite song is.


  1. Music has always been a vital part of my life. Certain songs/melodies strike a deep heart chord within me. One of my favorite songs of late is this one by Stevie Wonder:
