Watching You....

I love all kinds of music and always have. I switch easily from the heart rending notes of an operatic aria to bluegrass and then to flamenco. The one criteria is that the music must be that which draws the heart closer to goodness and truth.

Having said that, I must confess that there is one type of music that has a secret grip on my heart. I am a diehard country music fan and although it doesn't all meet my criteria, some of it is spot on.

In honor of all the men in my life who live a life of gentle strength, love, and devotion, I'm sharing a recently discovered favorite by Rodney Atkins. I offer it primarily in honor of my kids' Daddy and the love of my life who struggles daily to be the kind of man that a kid can emulate. He never rests in that effort and I thank God for giving Him the passion and will to embrace that journey.
