Music and My Hearts Desire

I love music and I love to sing with all my heart. You can find me driving along singing hymns of praise and worship whenever I'm alone or have the chance. When at home alone I crank up the stereo and pick my favorite worship songs to sing with. When my girls were little we always started the day with worship songs, when in school we would walk to their classrooms singing.
I'm sure over the years I've gotten funny looks but it doesn't bother me at all, for if I'm singing to my King that is all that matters. Music and worship can make any day brighter and filled with joy. I can attest to this-when I was working in banking and was robbed(the first time it was me, the 2nd and 3rd times I was there)I would choose to sing praise to my Lord and Savior. When I was walking through the finals days with my sister and her battle with cancer, even if I was sobbing I would still sing. It is part of who I am; so this morning when dear hubby went golfing and I sat down to work on Christmas quilts it was natural to have praise music playing.
Here is one of my favorite songs...if you know it sing along.

I Give You My Heart by Darlene Zschech

This is my desire
To honour You
Lord, with all my heart I worship You
All I have within me
I give You praise
All that I adore
Is in You

Lord, I give You my heart

I give You my soul
I live for You alone
Every breath that I take
Every moment I'm awake
Lord, have Your way in me

This is my hearts desire, to honor Him with all that I am.


  1. I love praise music too. However it does not come out of my mouth right. My youngest is always singing. Love to hear him sing. He has a very good voice too (o:

  2. I loved growing up singing praises to our King and I feel honored to carry on the tradition with my little ones :)

  3. Hey, snazzy background and new look. Did you do that yourself? Very pretty.

  4. I often sing songs of praise and thanksgiving when puttering around the house :o)

    I *love* your new blog decor ~ very pretty!


  5. My children are always trying to teach me how to do this and that on the computer...I stick to the same things. I am amazed I am doing this at all. I took a pic of the bike on July fourth in Allens Park Co. out in front of a little store (o: I can't seem to get any visitors at my blog today. Come leave me a note.
