As Preacher man and I prepare to go to Annual Conference, we have to clean the house. I gotta tell ya, we do it as a team and knock it out in record time! Which is nice, cuz it would take me two day's if I did it by myself. I get stuck in the bathroom trying to make it perfect. One of the things Preacher man is good at, is finding music I really want to hear at the time. I don't know how he does it, I'm pretty sure his ESPN is on the blink. Today he put on my new all time favorite: Pablo Rodriguez! You are probably thinking I have lost my mind cuz you have never heard of this guy huh? Well, this is the guy that was on the cruse ship that we were on in February. He's from Spain and during the slow time he comes on the ship and plays for about three months. He's my age, has a wife and little girl if I remember right. We bought most of his CD's and the songs he sings are from my past. "With a little help from my friends", "Another brink in the wall", "Cocaine", "Purple rain" to name a small few. He sounds like a cross between Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd, Eagles, Santana (Playing), all my favorites! I just can't believe how music stirs our souls! It transports us back in time mostly, cuz it would just be weird if it took us forward in time. It reminds us of who we are, who we've been and makes us smile when we think, aren't we glad we aren't that age any more!? My mom and dad's music does that to me too, however that takes me to a time when life was so much simpler! 
Music when done right in church can bring you to the throne of God. It can wipe away everyone in the room and put you smack dab in front of Jesus. I miss hearing music like that in church. However, I'm so glad that God created music and on top of that, that he gave us ears and hearts to listen to it. Music has a way of making me forget my problems and rejoice in the fact that tomorrow is another day. It unites hearts when they don't speak the same language. It soothes that savage beast, whoever that it. 
We don't need no education...
