Day 5 of #BOTY2019:Song

“Where words leave off,music begins”-Heinrich Heine,was a German poet, writer and literary critic.

Music puts into words emotions,experiences,drama and adds spice,rhythm,tunes,melodies and gives you harmonies,stability and the `I know what your going through feel.`’

My best song this year has been Goodness of God by Bethel music.

All my life you have been faithful

All my life you have been so, so good

With every breath that I am able,

I will sing of the goodness of God

I have seen the goodness of God over and over in 2019.He has held my hand through the good and the bad and this song painted this journey so well.

I have my playlist full of favorite songs but this has been my anthem.

What has been your IT song this year? Share in the comment section below.

Day 4 of #BOTY2019

As a lover of books,I will spend time pouring over a good book. I love fiction-a good story created by a genius. Although,this is true,there are non fiction books that will not be ignored.Here is one a friend recommended.

Strength of Character by Joseph Kabuleeta

We all need character to survive in this world. The author spoke to my heart,gave me reasons to understand why people (and myself included) do what they do. He also gives the hows to grow character ,esteem and so much more.He shares from his personal life experiences and adds a biblical perspective to each topic,which is the icing on the cake.
