|Download - Something in the Water|
Assigned this glorious day to write about country music, it's my pleasure to give you a heads up on another magnificent tune headed straight to number one, about love, life, change and mostly hope.
If you haven't heard Carrie Underwood's latest single released September 29th, 2014, 'Something in the Water', well get those speakers ready and crank this one up!
Although the song has a religious reference to Baptism, the lyrics easily apply to anybody going through a major metamorphosis in life.
If you've journeyed down endless rocky roads, and without realizing it, found yourself wasting too much of
|I Once Was Lost, but Now I'm Found|
(Lyrics) He said, "I've been where you've been before.
Down every hallway's a slamming door."
No way out, no one to come and save me
Wasting a life that the Good Lord gave me"
As we get older, and with a little bit of luck, many of us are invited to sit at the table of reflectionThis coveted seat allows us to see the genuine value of living the life we are meant to live. We remember our own idealistic spirit, the one we now see in younger souls coming up behind us, the ones now headed to the same table of reflection we've currently reached.
Looking in the eyes of youthful energy, the table of reflection calls you to pray that these young up-and-comers see their value and tap into their life purpose with as little pain as possible. All of us currently gathered around this table have come to understand one key point about life; in everything we do there is a choice, and ultimately, we are responsible for our own choices.
(Lyrics) "Couldn't fight back the tears so I fell on my knees
Saying, "God, if you're there come and rescue me."
Felt love pouring down from above
Got washed in the water, washed in the blood and now I'm changed
And now I'm stronger"
Take the Wishes Challenge!If you were granted one wish, what would that wish be? If you're a 20 year old soul reading this page, I challenge you to write down that wish, then every five years ask the question again, write down that answer and do that every half decade you live. Keep those wishes safely tucked in a box, and when you're invited to the table of reflection later in life, look back to see how your wishes have changed. As Carrie's song expresses, 'I am changed, I am Stronger, I was blind and now I see'
May your Sunday be blessed with the joy of love, friends, and family and if you find yourself void of any of these then please accept my virtual hug of hope given in the lyrics of 'Something in the Water':
Have a wonderful day!
