It’s Friday, and for the Americans, Happy Independence Birthday celebration! Speaking of celebration this weekend will be all about cookouts, swimming, dancing, boating, and fireworks – all set to a musical soundtrack. Thank you, Kate, for this Friday word. I have set my timer to 5, and GO!
If I were to put together a Spotify playlist according to the seasons of my life, from the 60s through the early 2000s, I would have produced the soundtrack of my life. I don’t even have Spotify, but I’ve been thinking quite a bit about this concept lately. I think there are 3 specific reasons, and here they are if you care to know.
First, I’m getting older and we tend to think of that last ceremony more and more as we get older. Personally, I would rather choose the Spotify playlist than leave the choices to someone who did not live my life. Is that too controlling?
And then I remember that I have already asked our younger son to learn to play the hymn “It Is Well” on his guitar. I hope he will play his guitar for my last ceremony. I hope someone will play “It Is Well” because I will be totally and wholly well for the first time and for eternity!
