sing it out

So thankful for rides first thing in the morning.
The weather was perfect, albeit a bit windy, but a great way to start the day. It made the burger and jalpeno poppers I had for lunch totally worth it. 15 miles sure makes you hungry. Tomorrow the goal is 20+.

The following was in my verse and voice email from Sojourners today:
"The blues are like spirituals, almost sacred. When we sing blues, we’re singing out our hearts, we’re singing out our feelings. Maybe we’re hurt and just can’t answer back, then we sing or maybe even hum the blues. When I sing ... what I’m doing is letting my soul out." - Alberta Hunter, American blues singer

I wonder what it means for me singing aloud in my truck everyday. Because my song of choice this week is "Gives you hell". I guess there are still some emotions from last week's multiple losses that I am still trying to work out. Hopefully folks in town are okay with the local preacher having a sore throat due to my lovely rendition of the Glee version of this song. (Just imagine my karaoke debut!) Well, whatever feelings I'm singing out, better out than in. Perhaps I should start listening to the blues...

Until tomorrow...


  1. So, today, singing at worship was another wonderful song experience...singing the gospel, the love of God...the joy in my heart...ah.
