RAMBLINGS FROM THE ROAD November 30, 2012
25 years ago today, my twins, John and Jenn were born. Those two have been a source of joy, comfort, delight, giggles, and inspiration. I celebrate them today. And for lo these 25 years have treasured all these things in my heart.
I’m currently on the road with Jason Crabb (and seriously if you don’t know his music, get it NOW) . We have having the best time. I keep singing in my head that old Donny and Marie Osmond song, “I’m a little bit country, (and then I say), I’m a little bit Classical.” Anyway we are having fun. Come see us. We are getting homesick and the one thing that makes homesick better is to see our friends out on the road.
I’m trying to get into a work out routine. Which for some reason seems easier on the road. So I’ve worked out every day for at least 20 min cardio and many times 30 minutes. I kinda get bored working out, I’m not gonna lie. I’ve tried watching TV, reading a book or magazine. I finally said forget it I’m just gonna listen to music.
Funny thing happened…I like music. That may sound odd, since well, I DO music. But often when our business is music, we don’t find ourselves actually listening to music. But I loved it. I had an “ah-ha” moment on that treadmill. I’ve always loved music. I fell in love with music because I listened to it way back when I was a kid. I can’t believe I forgot that... it’s good to remember what once gave us joy and find it again.
During this holiday season, what do you need to find that once gave you joy? Cooking? Music? Dancing? Singing? Running? Planning a tea? It doesn’t even have to be something that someone else sees. Just finding the joy all by yourself. Whatever it is…I pray you find it and lavish your heart with the re-acquaintance of an old friend.
Be blessed today friends—
