Some days, I struggle to show up to life. Some days, everything just feels like way too much. There's so much heartache and so much suffering. Across the street, around the world, across the room. Not to mention my own shortcomings and burdens.
Who knew that a recipe for a hit in 2019 would include Kygo, Whitney Houston, and Steve Winwood? Yep, that's happening. How? Let's break it down. Steve Winwood's "Higher Love" hit #1 all the way back in 1986. Whitney Houston apparently thought so, and recorded a cover of the tune back in 1990.
Let's time travel for a second: it's 2013, and you might be in college or maybe even wrapping up high school (if you were any younger please don't tell me, I already feel like a dinosaur at 25). A lot went down that year.
If I traveled back to 2009 and told you that in just 10 years, we'd have flame-throwing drones, a group of people committing to storm Area 51, and a moon named "Geoff," what would you say? No, seriously what would you say, because I'm speechless.
If you need some wholesome content to pick you up on your Monday, we've got just the thing for you. The official trailer for the upcoming Mister Rogers Movie, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, was released today! Tom Hanks stars as Mister Rogers, and if the trailer is any indication, he's going to be absolutely perfect for the role.
Summer is heating up – literally. But if you're a hip-hop fan, the beats are heating up as well. Just as Lecrae recently hinted on Instagram, 116 dropped their new Summer '19 Playlist today. Like last year's summer playlist, it's not technically an album, but rather a massive collection of 14 singles from 37 Reach Records artists.
I was on a flight a few years ago and the airport we were due to land in was experiencing some congestion on the runway due to inclement weather.
Sitting in the coffee shop, I hear the sound track of love coming from the speaker behind me. Or at least, the soundtrack of wedding receptions. Frank Sinatra is, “saying something stupid like I love you,” while Etta James, “wants a Sunday kind of love.
“If I only had ______, I’d be happy. ” Quick! Fill in the empty space! No hesitation! That’s cheating. What was the first thing that appeared in your head? Was it “Jesus?” That’s the Sunday school answer, but I’ll take it. Kudos to you. If not, don’t feel bad. It wasn’t my immediate answer, either.
I like direction. I like knowing the big picture. I like clarity. Which I’m learning is a really nice way of saying that I like control. This was a recent revelation for me. But when I announced my sudden and astounding discovery to a friend, she just smiled.
