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.
