Brooke vs. Mozzarella-This picture was taken not long after my daughter Ariana and my granddaughter Brooke were involved in a very bad accident. God saved them that day. Their car skidded on the wet highway and almost over the bridge, but stopped right near the edge. I have this picture here as a reminder of that, of how close I came to losing them and great God is. Brooke is my little buddy.
He is an adult contemporary singer and has been the inspiration for much of my writing in the romance drama genre. He has such a beautiful soulful voice.
Music has always been a part of my life. It has always been like a friend with its encouragement and support. Like an enemy with its painful reminders. For the past couple of years or so, I have turned away from the secular music world. WHat does secular mean? Well, it is basically music that does not honor, praise, worship or talks about God and his love for us. If we really think about it and ask ourselves the question, why do we listen to music then we will have our answer. Music influences us whether good or bad. Godly music is healthier for all of us but I am not here to shove anything down your throat. Just giving my two cents. (Lol)
My point is that I have the freedom to make this choice and I have never regretted my decision. Christian music has been God’s gift to me. It inspires and encourages me. There are so many great Christian musicians out there and I respect, admire and love them all, however, there is probably about twenty that are my top five. Yes, I can have twenty favorites in my top five. Since there are so many to list and I would not want to take up to much space here, I will share a few and leave it to you to ask me for the rest.
