Give Me Your Eyes

"Give Me Your Eyes" is the name of christian pop song by Brandon Heath. Most of the people that know me well know that I am a sucker for a good grove. Not to fast, not to slow - something that allows for the vocals to be explored fully and changed nightly (should you sing the song for a living). For me, "Give Me Your Eyes" is that sort of song. Last night I got the chance to do a small concert for my church and it was a blast. It turned out to be a lot more therapeutic than I was anticipating mostly because there will always be some part of me that likes to perform; but also because it reminded me of just how powerful a message becomes when it rides the sails of good melody. The song "The Little Girl" by John Michael Montgomery is a great testimony to that. Anyway, between my Alma Mater closing, some people I love going through the illness of a daughter, Alasha's Starbucks shutting its doors and having to move only months after moving - the news that I am going to be a father for a third time is like a beautiful lyric over a perfect melody.

"Thank You Lord for loving me and thank You Lord blessing me. Thank You Lord, for making me whole and saving my soul." (Gary Mabry 1974)
