You know what my New Song is. And I'm clinging to His promises about it, too!


I go thorough phases where I can listen to the same song a million times, and then, all of a sudden I'm tired of it. My favorite "new song" right now (although it is on a CD I have had for a couple of years, is "Unashamed Love", by Travis Cottrell. I love the end, where he recites the beginning of Psalm 91:

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust." Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

Have a great day!


"American Honey" by Lady Antebellum. I listen to it constantly!

I'm still searching for that 'perfect mix' to listen to while I exercise. I've picked out a sprint-distance tri as a goal in September and I'm working towards it. I do love to listen to Praise and Worship music that has a good beat. Toby Mac, Jeremy Camp, Third Day, etc.
Running and/or walking while hands are lifted in praise has gotten me some stares from the neighbors. But, oh well.


I'm all OVER the place when it comes to music, but I recently downloaded a Josh Wilson song called "Sing" that I love.

I made a "I'm a Gleek" playlist for those two albums. Totally stole the idea from a friend but it makes me smile.


Joanne, you might want to pick up the March issue of Prevention one of their articles, running is listed as the worst exercises-we're not designed for all that pounding!

Strengthens the heart, but wears out your body.
