Yep, you know me. I’m a sucker for for love songs.
Well, this year I’ve been in a little panic because I’ve barely had time to breathe, much less formulate a playlist–and even though I have kept a running list of songs throughout the year, nothing was really feeling right to me. I was about to skip this year. I was going to give up (despite the pull toward tradition). And then something happened.
Last night, while driving to a class, I turned on the radio–and a slew of songs old and new flooded my ears. I felt like I was given a gift, a tender mercy, an encouragement, a blessing. Making this playlist is important to me, and what is important to me is important to others–especially those who love me.
I sent a request to a friend for a cover of a song that I love (but it has words that I don’t like to voluntarily listen to), and she sent a text back that she would edit the song for me. It was in my inbox before my class was finished.
And, this morning, I had a little pocket of time to work on it…and, with the help of heaven and the love of sweet friends, I just might make it.
Here are a few songs that made the cut for the official 2014 Love Songs Playlist (in celebration of another year of marriage):
Justin Timberlake – “Not a Bad Thing”
Katy Perry – “Unconditionally”
Tristan Prettyman – “Unconditionally”
Betty Who – “Somebody Loves You”
Goo Goo Dolls – “Come to Me”
Sending love your way…always! ❤
