"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." (James 1:17)
Music and memories seem to go together. We all have songs we can think of, remember phrases of (if not the whole song) and have going through our minds about now. Some of us have favorite hymns where the same thing happens. Some of us, especially me, can only remember a phrase and it is never the first line! Thankfully I have friends who can help me find the hymn or the song.
Music can also help us strengthen our relationship with God. It is a "good and perfect gift" (v. 17) helping us to connect with God who "doesn't change" even as we change the music styles. I, personally, like to listen to praise music but an old fashioned Gospel Hymn Sing is what some people immediately think of. There are also "regular" hymns and, my Dad's favorite, Gregorian chants. Quite a selection of music to praise God with.
Music and memories -- what do you think of? Do you have a special hymn or praise song? As Caregivers is there a type of music you use to help strengthen your relationship with God? To help calm, and strengthen, YOU? Can you share it? Something to think about.........
