I will not lose my song.
At 65 I can’t remember where I left my keys, but I can remember every word of a Broadway showtune.
Since I was little, I loved to sing.
I believe singing is a God gift. God gave me a little body and a big mouth – What can I say?
I sing to share joy.
For many years, my life was joy. It was so easy to sing.
Then life and dreams were shattered. Trauma ensued. I wondered:
Could I lose my song?
After months of turmoil and processing the loss of my love of 40 years, I realized:
I CANNOT lose my song.
Neither can you.
Whether you sing your song, play it on an instrument, or listen intently…
Don’t Lose Your SONG
✅ Don’t lose your song.
✅ Your song is the lovely music God has given you to share with others
✅ Music reconnects your brain to your soul
✅ Music reawakens something deep inside.
✅ Music redirects the brain to calmer places.
✅ Some music awakens raw feelings – allowing you to deal with them and…let go.
✅ Some music flows like balm over raw feelings – comforting the heart
✅ Seek out God’s music
✅ Music heals
I recently had the honor of performing as Luisa in the musical, The Fantasticks.
I consider it a true miracle this 65 year-old played a whimsical, innocent 16 year-old on stage.
I sang and danced with all my might and…there on stage…I healed a bit.
In the midst of performances of this poetic love story, I came to grips with my lost love.
Singing released some sorrow.
God knew just what I needed.
God, I’m so grateful.
I continue to sing.
I invite you to join me.
🎶God won’t let us lose our songs. 🎶
