Dreaming of a musical moment

Ever had a musical moment? You know, when time freezes for just long enough for the tune to stick in your head, for you to memorize that voice, to disect every lyric and then for your heart to decide that you've connected with something special? I had one of those today, a time when I needed it. Lots of crazy things going on right now, yet in between of everything, there's the time and the moments just like this that sort of sneak up on you and capture the essence of what makes life worth living. Well, instead of just dragging this post on, I'll get to it.

Thriving Ivory's "Angels On The Moon" played on the radio today-the line that stuck in my head was not to mention if he was dying, because if he can't see the sun, then maybe he should just go. I got to thinking about it (as usual-duh.) and I started wondering, that's like waltzing through life and not caring about any eternal results, you're just kind of there, floating, existing, but nothing beyond that, and if-or when you finally get a glimpse of something more, you see that there's SO much more to your life than you've ever known or realized, how does it make you feel? What do you do after something that earth-shattering? How do you go on? Should you go on? Or should you just kind of stay there?

The second line that made sure I wouldn't forget this musical moment was when I looked up the lyrics to see who'd sang what and the line of just having a sunburn to know that you're alive-wow. Think a little deeper about that one. I can't quite put into words what it's got swirling through my head right now. Well, I'll give it a try anyway-as if you're just rushing through everything, the traffic, familiy, the noise...everywhere, and God just reaches down and touches you , so you remember and realize that He's there. And then He touches your heart. You're alive.

That's my musical moment. Cheerio.

Great reflections there, Sara.

And a good question - "What do you do after something that earth-shattering?"

I've had my share of those moments too.
