Heads up about the Ultimate Blog Party...and a Musical Meme

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

So you say you want to promote your blog? Want to introduce some new readers to it? Then you need to make plans to participate in the Ultimate Blog Party, coming up March 7th through the 14th.

Click on the graphic above to find out how you can get involved.

I participated in last year's blog party, and it was great. I found some blogs that have become favorites of mine, and hopefully I gained some new readers as well. It's also a chance to win some great prizes!

And now for something completely different...

Because my mind is somewhat blank right now, I thought it would be a good time for a meme! (meme: "A unit of cultural information, such as a cultural practice or idea, that is transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another." In blogs, it's usually a fun, lighthearted quiz.)

So here we go...

A Musical Meme

Senior Class Song: "We May Never Pass This Way Again," by Seals and Croft. It's still a great song, by the way:

Song That Makes You Think of College: Bear in mind, I went to a Christian college. But I can never hear any Andrae Crouch song without thinking of college. For example, here's a great one:

Favorite pop song: Way, way too many to list here

Favorite Country Western Song:: "God Blessed the Broken Road," by Rascal Flatts

Favorite All Time Love Song: "Night and Day"

Song That Reminds You Of Your Husband: "What a Man" by Salt 'n Pepa

Favorite Broadway Song: "On My Own," from Les Miserables:

Song That Always Makes You Cry: "Somewhere Out There," by Linda Ronstadt and James Ingram. It always makes me think of my mom and how much I wish I could be with her.

Also, I've been known to get emotional while singing hymns--just when the reality of Christ's love for me really hits me, his sacrifice on the Cross, it's a powerful and overwhelming thing. "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross" is one of those.

Favorite Christmas Song:

--Hark! the Herald Angels Sing (traditional)

--Strange Way to Save the World (modern)

Favorite Hymn: "And Can it Be That I Should Gain," words by Charles Wesley. The picture painted by the following verse is incredibly powerful:

Long my imprisoned spirit lay,
fast bound in sin and nature's night;
thine eye diffused a quickening ray;
I woke, the dungeon flamed with light;
my chains fell off, my heart was free,
I rose, went forth, and followed thee.

"I woke, the dungeon flamed with light..." Wow.

Hey, that was fun. And the party sounds like a great idea. I'll look into that. And, since I haven't visited you in a while, I tho't it was time to tag you - come by and play if you like. *huggies*
