Woke up this morning and couldn't go back to sleep; one of of the things that I do to help me when this happens is to listen to music. Quite often it is New Age or Classical because they tend to be smooth with no vocals. For this reason I also occasionally listen to smooth jazz. Lately however I have started to listen to hymns with the words and I find that this helps carry the calmness throughout my day as the words come back into my mind. I have the hymns from our hymnbook on CD and put it on my 5 CD player and hit repeat all and listen all night. A couple of weeks ago I discovered an Internet radio station http://www.yldsr.com/ that plays hymns, contemporary inspirational music and now Christmas music and you can choose which type you would prefer to listen to. Right now 'Amazing Grace' is playing but when I first got up and started to listen one of my favorite contemporary songs was on and it kept going through my mind even with other songs playing so I decided to share it with you and I was surprised and delighted to find a video version on you-tube. I hope you will listen and it will touch your spirit as it touches mine.
