I hope y’all are having a great day! 🙂 I’m so happy that summer’s here, and with summer comes so many flowers!! Our garden is starting to burst into bloom, and then there are all the flowers around our farm and on the sides of the road. Wildflowers are such an amazing creation! All the different sizes and shapes and colors and where and when they grow… I’m so thankful God put such variation in his creation for us to enjoy. 🙂
So, today I bring you a collection of the many flower photos I have, as well as some songs I’m enjoying right now. The vast majority (I use that phrase a lot, fun fact) of bloggers I follow have done one or more playlist posts recently, so you might be a little overloaded with music. But ah well! My music is the best, in my opinion. (Which is why I listen to it. Amazing!)
These aren’t really my top 15 songs or anything, because then there would just be a lot of Switchfoot. Hehe! Also I don’t think I could figure out what my favorite 15 songs are.
Counting Every Blessing – Rend Collective
I don’t love all of Rend Collective’s songs, but this one is nice. 😀 It’s very happy and enthusiastic. I don’t know what genre this is in. I guess praise and worship?
The Strength To Let Go – Switchfoot
Switchfoot! 😀 They’re my favorite band and have been for quite a while. (Sadly though they haven’t had a concert near us since a few months before I started liking their music about three years ago. If anyone knows the band members, please tell them I’d like them to do a concert near me. Thanks! XD) Anyway, this is one of my favorite song off their new album. Not sure what genre it is. Maybe Alternative Christian Rock? Anyway, it’s a good one.
Compass – Shawn McDonald
If this is Christian Pop, then it’s one of my favorite songs in that genre. It’s quite catchy! I haven’t really heard any other Shawn McDonald songs, but this one is nice.
Make This Leap – The Hunts
The Hunts are a band made up of seven siblings! They mostly do love songs, which kind of get repetitive after a while, but they aren’t bad and I really like the music. 🙂 This one is very bouncy and happy, but not all-over-the-place bouncy.
Deliverance – Strahan
I like about two of Strahan’s songs, but the two I like are great! The other ones are fine, just plenty soft for my tastes. Anyway Deliverance is a great song with a strong beat but pretty mild singing. Don’t know what genre this is. Christian Folk? I don’t know how one knows these things. I clearly don’t! It’s a nice catchy song. The lyrics aren’t super unique, but they’re fine. 😀
Self Less – Josh Wilson
This is like the opposite of the previous song. The music isn’t my favorite, but I like it for the lyrics. Which do get a bit repetitive. BUT ANYWAY! The chorus is my favorite:
“It ain’t about thinking less of myself
Just thinking of myself less“
EXACTLY. How about self less instead of self love? Get your mind off yourself for a bit. Maybe it’ll help. 🙂
El Shaddai – Dogwood & Holly
This song gets a bit tense and sort of screamy, but it’s not hard rock music. Just very passionate singing. 😛 I really like it though, apart from the screaming section! It’s supposed to be like Job, which is neat.
Monday Comes Around – Switchfoot
Now Switchfoot has both wonderful music and lyrics! I recently got Spotify so now I can listen to their old albums. The songs are a bit harder than their newer ones, so you might not like them as much if you prefer mellow music. But I like it! 🙂
Sleeping – Relient K
“You’ll make a butter lettuce salad with all natural ingredients, except for cottage cheese.”
^ That lyric is the main reason I like this song.
But it’s also just a nice catchy song. I’ve gotten a bit tired of the music, but the lettuce salad part is great.
Bridges Burn – NEEDTOBREATHE
I like the music of this one. The “da-doo, da-doo” part of the song gets very stuck in my head whenever I hear it. I guess this genre is just plain ol’ rock?
Trust in Jesus – Third Day
Good song. I like it. I’m running out of things to say about all these songs. XD
Air I Breathe – Mat Kearney
Whenever I think of Mat Kearney I think of him playing at a NEEDTOBREATHE concert we went to and him singing for so long when we just wanted to hear NTB. XD But I do like this song by him!
Moving Forward – Colony House
We shall end on a nice, uplifting, bouncy song! 🙂
There we go, I hope you enjoyed the photos and the songs! And have a wonderful rest of your day. 🙂
favorite song of the ones above?
