Moving Thoughts Friday

Every Friday I’m going to ask a question. The questions I choose might be ambiguous on purpose. The goal is to have you answer the question according to your beliefs, where you’re at in life or a circumstance that might have recently impacted you. The only thing I ask is that you provide an explanation for why you answered the way you did.

It’s my hope to understand you better through this and also to gain a greater understanding of humanity and how people make decisions.

What songis you?

  1. Oh my goodness! I have no idea how to answer this one. Must think.....must think hard....

  2. Hey, this is fun! I'd have to say that "Sounds of Silence" by Simon and Garfunkle is so me!

    I see so many people who have a message of hope swirling all around them...yet they can't seem to grab hold of it. And I just want to impart that hope to them!

    I know that's not what the song is REALLY all about. But that's what it is to me.

  3. Martina McBride: "Blessed" :)

    PS.Love the pictures you used today! So...artsy.

  4. I'd have to go with "Forever Reign" by Hillsong. This song reminds me of Isaiah 30:18 where it talks about how God is longing to be good and compassionate to us. I'm embarking on a new adventure and coming out of a rough patch so this song is where I am right now.

  5. Whooooooo....this is a tough one...

    after sitting here for a long while...

    I still got nothing...I've been through dozens of songs in my head, and discarded them as not quite right.

  6. "Grateful." Contemporary Gospel. I can't remember what choir sings it though.

    So I pulled up iTunes and looked at my highest play count. You Are More by Tenth Avenue North. Close. I like it. Not quiiite answering this question.

    So I look a little more and Me and Jesus is there by Stellar Kart. Love this song! Not quite answering the "you" though. Made to Love by Toby Mac is a contender. So is Hanging on by Britt Nicole, Jesus loves you by Stellar Kart, Hero (Red Pill Mix) by Superchick and Dear X, by Disciple.

    I think the closest may be Desert Song by Hillsong. (Which if you listen to the song listed just before it and then that should make you laugh. I mean, I like them both, but very different sounds!)

  8. Wow, Wendy. You're really making me think on this one. My first thought was The Four Seasons by Vivaldi. That's my writing music, and I've played the classic piece over 1,000 times. No kidding. I just checked iTunes. And that doesn't count the hundreds of times I've played it in my SportTrac. I seriously LOVE that piece. However, since there are no lyrics, I don't know if that classifies as a song.

    So, pick number 2 would be "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring." That's the hymn that was played when I took a stroll up the aisle to marry Gwynly. I can't hear the piece now without tearing up. But that's really not "my" song. That's more "our" song.

    If I had to pick a song that would best fit me, it would "Don't Worry, Be Happy." I tend to be a worry wart, so I need the reminder to enjoy life. I can't listen to that song without smiling.

  9. It changes from time to time. Right now it's God Will Make a Way by Don Moen. You are too young to know it, I bet, but it nourishes me in a dark forest of unknowns and thorny issues.

    I have especially missed this blog on my hiatus. So glad to be back to your beauty! You have a sparkling heart, and your blog shows it.


  10. Great question! It changes daily. Sometimes I'm a little "Here for the party" by Gretchen Wilson. Others I'm more "Free to be Me" by Francesca Battistelli. Am I occasionally "Lover Lay Down" by Dave Matthews Band? Yep. And I have days when I'm the full Miles Davis "Kind of Blue" album. Today? "Punk Rock Girl" by Dead Milkmen!

  11. The answer does change daily like Jill said, but mostly it stays: I Am Yours by the Casting Crowns

  12. Fun question! I love reading these answers.

    Mine is "Impossible Dream, from Man of La Mancha. Even after all I've been through, I still plead guilty to all the idealism of Don Quixote.

  13. I admit, I am not a music person. I hardly ever listen to music, even in the car (I prefer the quiet). But my very first thought when I read the question was Vivaldi's Four Seasons. I just saw Keli answered the same, but I swear I am not copying! I just love that classical piece, and even though I don't listen to it often, every time I hear it, my heart and spirit soar.
