same songs...different phases of life

Last night Matt and I went to see David Gray at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta. The tickets were a gift for his birthday back in April. I usually get him concert tickets as presents, because we haven't been able to go to as many lately (stupid Ticketmaster and LiveNation fees!). The show was amazing, I will probably post some videos on Monday.

When Mr. Gray, who seems like such a cool Brit, btdubs, started playing This Year's Love, I found my eyes filling up with tears. Let me explain.

I believe one of the coolest things about music is that certain songs can connect you back to another time in your life. In 2006, I listened to David Gray's White Ladder album ALL THE TIME. I remember what I was thinking and feeling and praying to God about when I was listening to it. It is so neat to see how God was watching over me at that time, and how he is still watching over me now. I have grown so much since then, and God (and David Gray's music) was there all along.
