Is There A Song That Makes You Sad? - 4Ms #Music #Hop

I usually stay away from sad songs. Why feed into it. I already have enough frustrations for my day. But today's theme calls for something like it. And the one I share below is ..well..you get it.

How are you enjoying the week leading up to Easter?
I was going to let the kids make leaves for Palm Sunday, but then I got into other things (maybe I'm a tad OCD) and really got a lot of work done around the house. Then I felt bad for not doing it, but really, is it about the leaves? No. exactly.

The kids have all week off from school. I do not mind. I get to replenish and enjoy time with them. You already know that the moment they begin school, their journey away and from your home has begun, so I"m glad I get more time with them anytime.
My son is excited about the holiday (Spring break), my daughter is not happy. She loves school and he doesn't really care that much for it. Of course he doesn't throw a fit not to go or anything, he just makes it a statement that he doesn't like going and would rather stay home with me.

My inspiration this week is helping my children to remember what is important about Easter and enjoying our family time together. What inspires you this week?

Wake up to music! I will be visiting you soon!
THEME: March 25th/Spotlight Dancer Amethyst-Moon, Blues! Not necessarily Blues music,but songs that make you sing the blues (sad songs).

Christian music’s “Female Vocalist of the Year” from 2006 through 2009 and 2012 Grammy nominee Natalie Grant is known for her powerhouse voice, but has also made a commitment to fight human trafficking around the world.  
In addition to performing her signature songs like “Held,” “In Better Hands” and “I Will Not Be Moved” with a decidedly Christ-centered message, Natalie has always been committed to putting feet to her faith by making a difference in the world around her. After a life-changing trip to India, Natalie has made it her mission to combat international human trafficking through her work with Abolition International, which she founded in 2005. The trip also served as an inspiration for many of the songs on her breakthrough albumAwaken (2005).

  2. I love Natalie Grant. She has been around for quite awhile. I think Mark Shultz is my all time favorite Christian singer! Have you ever heard any of his songs? Walking Her Home is my favorite! :)

  3. LOTS of songs make me sad....I took a different approach this week, because I just can't listen to a bunch of sad songs. Maybe I can one of these days; this one is new to me.

  5. Is Natalie Grant related to Amy Grant by chance?

    This is a lovely song and it's great to see champions rally for noble causes such as she is.

    Thanks for sharing this new tune with me and again, it's great sharing the co-host seat with you on Monday's Music Moves Me! ;)

  7. a heartbreaking song and a heartbreaking global issue for sure. it's appalling how some will use a human life for their own ends.
    but it gives me hope that their are people like Natalie in the fight for right.

  8. I am not one for heart break songs. If there is one song that makes me sad it's "Were You There When They Crucified My Lord."

  12. The saddest song I have ever heard was by Eric Clapton "Tears in Heaven", and knowing the story behind it. I try to put it out of my mind, but someone else came up with it today! This is a wonderful song Callie. I went to church yesterday for Palm Sunday, and it's the frosting on my cake. Thanks. Great choice!

  16. I like inspirational music that lifts my spirit. Today is Good Friday and a public holiday in Jamaica. They played a lot of religious music on one of the radio stations.Actually it is night time and they are playing some more right now. The songs are uplifting with positive messages. Enjoy the rest of your weekend Colette.
