when there is no music, you make your own…

No, that’s not a metaphor for anything!!!  Don’t read too much into things…

Since my media fast began 11 days ago, I knew I’d miss the sound of the television and music… but I didn’t realize just how much… okay, TV–I’ve actually been okay without… but I really, really, really miss listening to music!  I miss listening to music when I’m driving.  I miss listening to music when I’m working.

This may sound odd, but nothing moves me more than music.  I’ve probably cried more tears listening to music than I have watching a movie…  I was so desperate yesterday that I actually played the piano that I hadn’t touched in about a year!  (But then I realized it was so out of tune that I just gave up).  And the last few days, I’ve just been singing songs to myself like a lunatic in the car!  But the last two days, for some odd reason, God’s been putting this beautiful song in my heart… and of all songs, it’s a song in español!  Not only does this song have a beautiful melody, but also beautiful lyrics… and it really spoke to my heart today (and today was a very, very looooong day with very looooooong meetings)!

ANTES de TI

Antes de ti, no había razón no había nada sin ti.
No había canción, en mi corazón no había nada en mi.
Después de tanto buscarlo lo hallé
Mi corazón encontró ese lugar.

Eres todo lo que quiero, luz a mi alma, todo lo que necesito, llenas mi espacio,

eres mi vida, mi todo, eres lo que quiero para mi y en ti encontré la razón de mi existir.
Antes de ti, un vacío viví, no había nada en mi.
Sin ilusión, en mi corazón no había nada sin ti.
Después de tanto buscarlo lo hallé
Mi corazón encontró ese lugar.

Eres mi vida, eres mi todo, eres mi anhelo, la razón de mi existir

Before You (it doesn’t sound as beautiful in inglés… oh, and my spanish isn’t that fluent…i had some help!)

Before you, there was no reason, there was nothing without you.
There was no song, in my heart, there was nothing in me.
After much searching I found
My heart found this place.

You’re all that I want, light to my soul, everything that I need, You fill my space,

You’re my life, my all, you are what you want for me, and you are the reason for me to exist.

Before you, there was a void lived, there was nothing in me.
Without hope, in my heart there was nothing without you.
After much searching I found
My heart found this place.

You are my life, you’re my everything, you are my desire, the reason why I exist.

THANK YOU JESUS FOR BEING MY EVERYTHING…

AND GIVING ME A REASON TO LIVE!
