Praising the Lord for music

I just wanted to share a little part of me that many of you may not know. I am in love with music. And not modern music (although I do listen to it occasionally) but musicals and old music. I mean, wow. I grew up listening to Broadway musical soundtracks, and my mom favored Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables. If you want to get me crying, just play those soundtracks.

So I am sitting here, designing a blog website, listening to the Motion Picture Soundtrack for Les Miserables (2012), and I am just moved in the deepest parts of my soul. And I start bawling. And I start praying and thanking the Lord for music. Not only beautiful, soul moving music, but a Broadway show that is all about redemption and how a man turned his life around because the Lord showed him His love.

So I just wanted to share that. I know there is no takeaway except that Erin is a sensitive spirit that cries at beautiful music. haha ;) But at least you know a new thing about me.

Start listening at 2:10…that’s where it gets really good :)

    Hi Erin! I was also in class with you last night and wanted to stop by and say hi! Thanks for the Les Mis video!! I saw Les Mis in 1990, it was my first musical. I tagged along with another class in college and it blew my mind.
