Well, would you look at that.Â It’s the second half of 2014. Wasn’t it just yesterday that I was in Cagayan de OroÂ for SFC’s International Conference? ((I realized that I never had a recap post for this — must write this!))
I feel a little overwhelmed knowing that it’s the second half of 2014 already. May and June went by like that, mostly because my new role at work is keeping me busy every single day. To recuperate from all the stress, I do my best to start doing the things I like doing, otherwise known as the things I have time to do while I was still a semi-slacker. :P Of course, now that I don’t have all the time in the world to do all of that,Â I have to choose and use my time wisely. Let me tell you: the temptation to do nothing right after a long day’s work is so strong, but now I try to battle that to do other things that I like. Like reading, or chatting with friends, or writing blog posts like this.
Of course, sometimes, the need to sleep and lie down and do nothing wins over, and well, that’s not so bad, either. Just not all the time.
I digress. This post is about songs, the songs that had somehow accompanied the first half of my 2014. I started doing this last year, and I thought it was fun, so now I am going to do it again. :D Because what is life without music, yes?
Seven songs, because 1/2 of 14 is 7. :)
(Post title is from Matt Hires’ Honey Let Me Sing You a Song. â™¥)
1. I Will Be by Natalie Grant
Gracious, Gentle and Kind
Knowing that your love will shine
I’ve had this song for so long, but I think I only really started appreciating this late last year to early this year. This song had so much positivity, and it gives me the fuel to try to be what the song says: I will be a candle in the darkness, I will be a hand from heaven above. :)
