I love music so much that I wonder why I'm not a musician. Okay, maybe because I lack talent in that arena. But, my family is full of talent. My mom plays piano and flute with ease. My grandpa and my sister both could have had professional careers as musicians (he was a drummer and pianist and she was a floutist). But, although I don't get to participate in creating good music, I can still appreciate it. I just get chills running down my spine when I hear good music.
So, I have to share with you some great new music out there. Matt Maher's new CD, "Empty and Beautiful" caught my attention right away. It's filled with deep and poignant lyrics and tunes that make me want to sing along. The first song, "Lay it down," speaks right to my heart about the true nature of surrender. Music has a way of touching our hearts in a way that is deeper than mere words.
