Wednesday's Walk...oldies but goodies!

Working out at the Y last evening, I was going through the songs on my MP3 player trying to find upbeat and motivating songs to keep me going.  It was a stressful workout and I needed every little bit of encouragement I could get.  I really just wanted to give up and go home.  I found myself picking out songs from days gone by that I just absolutely love. 
This event inspired me for a Wednesday's Walk theme of 80's/early 90's Christian music...if you are too young to relate, I understand, but for fun you may want to listen along.  I was a teenager when I started listening to only Christian music...a great sacrifice at the time when 80's pop music was "it".  I don't regret it, but at the time it was a big decision.  
For me, music is timeless.  A song can take me right back to when I first heard it or when God used it to encourage me or draw my attention to give him all the glory He deserves.
Enjoy a few of the oldies, but goodies, I was able to find on YouTube...   


  1. Well I wasn't listening to Christian music in the 80s :(, but I do know the Amy Grant one you posted :)

  2. Yes, yes, yes!!! I remember all of these groups/people and their songs! Remember Degarm and Key?... and... Keith Green? Sweet Comort Band? Thanks for the walk down memory lane.

  3. Ahhhhh I love it! Sadie Patty and later Peta were some of my favorites! How fun to watch these!

  4. love these songs! yes, I remember! my sister and I sang "another time" one year! :)

  5. Wow, it is so true how the music we listen to infuses into our lives - either by memories or encouragement or emotions... Music is such a blessing.

  6. I wasn't allowed to listen to Christian music that wasn't like Hymns and Chorus music. Very conservative my brother works for a major Christian music station. SO FUNNY TO ME. (and my parents way way way lightened up)
    Oh, and I listened to it anyway. I was a big rebel :o)

it's not about me

I reminded myself of this recently.
It's not about me at all, this wellness journey I am on to a healhier version of myself.
Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
