Let me put this out there – I’m probably the least technical woman on the planet. Which is funny, considering I work in RADIO. But seriously – I know which buttons to push to play a song and get my voice on the air… and I rely on my incredible team to do the rest of the technical stuff around here. I like to focus on communicating with you and bringing you awesome music!
So I’m not sure how this happened. All I know is it DID happen. I was looking through my ‘recently added’ folder in iTunes, and came across a sound recording from my daughter’s iPod Touch (she’s just been gifted this for her 10th birthday so she can stream the Pulse app!). I must have something set wrong if it’s importing all her sound recordings, and not just downloaded songs, right?
But here’s the cool thing. I tapped on the recording, and the most awesome thing began to play. She was recording herself singing Pulse music. (I would share, but she would be mortified!) And she knew all the words to a song with a wonderful message!
I am a well run dry, I am a clouded, starless sky
Without Your breath of life I would surely die
But You gave your life for mine
And as it turns out, this fickle heart in my chest
Sometimes it beats for everything but what is best
But when I turn down this voice I hear in my head
I give you room to speak and offer life instead
So take all of these idols, all of my idols and lay them to rest
I know the statistic. When she turns 18, she will have memorized the lyrics to over 2,000 songs. How AWESOME is it that our children get to grow up listening to Pulse 101.7FM, ensuring that those lyrics are good ones? I know from experience – when she needs to hear them again, God will bring this song to mind, even years from now.
Music. It’s a powerful thing. Use it wisely!
