I Will Not Lose My Song

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’m grateful. 

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.  🎶
