If you're thirsty and dry, look up to the sky...

How about a chance to listen to three of my favorite songs? Would you enjoy that this morning?

I enjoy lots of music, but I've really been enjoying three songs in particular lately, and thought you might like some great music to brighten your day.

TobyMac -- Lose My Soul -- His music keeps getting better and better, doesn't it? I don't know what I like about this one in particular except it sounds great, it's catchy, and it's true. This is my favorite TobyMac song. I'm glad you like it, too.

Flyleaf -- Something I Can Never Have -- There's a unwritten rule. If you're going to cover a Nine Inch Nails song, you better know what you're doing. You might say I listened to NIN quite a bit back in the day, and it was refreshing to hear a group of born-again folks tackle it so well. Here's yet another group of believers making their mark in the mainstream. This song sounds great. Turn it up!

Jimmy Swaggart -- It's Beginning to Rain -- At the first drop of rain, by all means, throw open the windows! Still my very favorite track from Brother Jimmy. A tape exists somewhere around here of a buddy and myself doing a mock radio show in the 1980s in which we followed this song up with Stryper's "To Hell With the Devil." Can you think of a radio station today that would be cool enough to play those two tracks one after another? Keep rocking for the King, Brother Swaggart. And Stan Blazyk, this one if for you, sir. Has it been a little dry lately? Look up to the sky, it's beginning to rain.

Now wasn't it pleasant to enjoy some special music first thing in the morning? You thought I'd forgot I had a blog.

One of the best things about having your own blog is being able to post as often (or as infrequently) as you like. There's a freedom in that I thoroughly enjoy. It's liberating to know that I don't have to post again for six weeks if I don't feel like it.

I probably won't wait six weeks, though. Have a fantastic day.
