I’ll be honest, this one is sort of a bust for me. Sarah challenged us to make a mixed CD of music that sends us the following messages: I am beautiful, I am loved, I matter. And then we are supposed to play it at least once throughout the rest of our week. Awesome! I love music! But…
My hard drive crashed a few months ago, taking with it all my precious music.
My iPod followed suit.
My new hard drive is not equipped with a sound card.
All this to say, I have no way to listen to music or burn it to a CD or anything of the sort. (So if you’re out in the blogosphere and want to send me a copy of YOUR CD, feel free. My car CD player would greatly appreciate some feel-good music on my 45 minute commute to work each morning. End shameless plug for mail.)
However, I will pass along these youtube videos of songs that I adore and that make me feel loved, beautiful, or worthy. Or, in the case of the last one, just fun.
Ingrid Michaelson “The Way I Am“
David Crowder Band “Oh, How He Loves“
Switchfoot “Twenty Four”
(This was my favourite song on a mixed CD a dear friend made me for my birthday one year. It is a beautiful song and always reminds me of how loved I felt when she gave me the CD.)
Switchfoot “This is Home“
Regina Spektor “The Call”
(Yes, I have a thing for The Chronicles of Narnia. Sue me.)
Mika “Big Girl (You are Beautiful)”
(It seriously makes me want to dance.)
What about you, friends? What songs do you love?
