My fingers are sore.
Sorry, that’s probably not the greatest way to start a blog post. The picture above is of my guitar. It’s a great guitar, and probably not that great of a picture, but I’m not the photographer. That’s my brother. I just fool around with pictures for fun. If you’re interested in some great photography, though, Allison from A Farm Girl’s Life had these stunning pictures of sunflowers earlier today, and they were absolutely fantastic.
Back to the picture of my guitar, I’ve made a decision. This decision was formed after a (somewhat) intensive scavenger hunt for Christian music, which didn’t exactly turn out great. Turns out that my family and I aren’t exactly built for the Christian noise that’s out there. While we enjoy some Christian music (there’s some really great stuff if you know where to look), on the whole we were disappointed. So, I’ve decided (back to that big decision, right?) that I would learn how to make the Christian music I wanted on my guitar.
I know that I’ve talked about my guitar before, but not lately, partly because I haven’t been playing my guitar lately. In fact, as I mentioned before, I’ve barely played my guitar at all these last few months. however, now I’m launching myself back into playing that beautiful instrument that sits up on my wall collecting dust.
Anyway, I’ve decided that my goal is going to be an hour a day, and I started this morning, (which is why my fingers hurt). The cool thing about the guitar is it hurts the less you play it. I’m already learning the following list of Christian songs:
- Awesome God
- Thy Word
- Step by Step
- Above All
- Open the Eyes of My Heart
If you have any further suggestions, please share them in the comments below. I would love to hear them, and I will keep you guys updated on how it goes. As I said in my blog post We Don’t Go To Church (And Why), we’ve shaped our own little church here at home, and I’m excited to be able to take an active part in contributing to our church by playing my guitar. I’m not all tht great at it, but I am happy to try harder to praise the LORD with my instrument.
God bless you,
