I often wake up in pain and forget to listen and sing along to a few of my favorite songs that often help ease me feel better. Research has proven that music influences people’s thoughts and mood. A love song makes me want to be with my husband, and a church song helps ease my stress as I remember that my Heavenly Father is aware of me and what is going on in my life. My son ALWAYS listens to music when he takes a shower. The combination of the water and loud music helps to clear his sleepy brain as he begins his day.
The above picture shows one of our family’s cats, Princess, on the upright piano. She likes to walk on the keys from one end to the other. And like a princess, her “playing/walking” actually sounds okay!
I’m grateful that the Lord gave us the gift of music, and need to be consistent with my vocal warm-ups and studying my piano music books again. As much as I love to play by ear, where there is a song in my head and I somehow know what keys to play.
Does anyone have a story involving music that you’d like to share in the comments?
