Good music #3...or is it #4??

I thought I'd share one more of my favorites! John and I really like Totally Acappella. It's an internet radio station that plays only christian acappella music. Let me give you the brief story behind why we like it so much. When John and I first started attending a Mennonite church we listened to contemporary christian music, like most christians. But some of the more conservative mennonites would actually believe that God does not approve of using musical intrustrument. They have several Bible verses they use to back that up and such. Well, John and I took this very seriously. We wanted to investigate, research, pray, and find out what was the truth. So, we did. We even "fasted" from musical intrusment for a year so that they wouldn't be a distraction to us. Our conclusion? We don't agree. We feel musical intruments are fine. (That's a whole blog post by itself, though.) But, we did discover a few things in the process. We really, REALLY enjoy acappella music for worship. I feel it's less distracting, less emotional, and doesn't put the focus on "the worship band", plus it's beautiful. We listen to both types alot. At first we were having a really hard time finding acappella music that fit our style but then we stumbled across Totally acappella. It has lots of different types of acappella music on there. Most we like. So, anyway! There is another glimpse into some of my musical choices. Usually when I am on the computer I like to listen to it. Try it out! Thanks for reading!

And because I know you all love my Bradley stories...
Tonight, Bradley decided he needed a little exfoliation. But why pay $$$ for those expensive sugar rubs when you can just get mom's brown sugar off the table, spill it on the floor and roll around in it?? Why didn't I think of that!?

I love acapella so much too. Remember how I used to beg you to sing The Rose and Carol of the Bells and Sing Me to Heaven with me so we could each do our own part? I'm such a dork...

I'm sure the brown sugar was super fun to clean up. Do you guys have a dustbuster? I hope so...

Umm...let's not forget the Les Miserables soundtrack too.
