Live Video Montage

I have always loved music.  Music can make me LAUGH.  It can make me cry.  It can make me reflect, reminisce, and ask why.  It can make me dance.  It can make me sing.  It can make me worship my King.

When I became a Christian, the Lord used music to minister to me in ways nothing else could.  Of all the artists I listened to, Andrew PetersonBebo Norman, and Nichole Nordeman had and continue to have the greatest impact on my life.

A few weeks ago, while the words of Nichole Nordeman's song Live played, I was thinking about Jesus Christ and how He gives me the hope, the desire, and the passion to truly live.  I was also thinking about God's creation and had many photos running through my mind.  I decided to ask a few fellow bloggers, who have inspired me in many ways, if I could use a few of their photos to organize a video montage to accompany these words.  They said, "Yes," so here it is:



A special thank you to each of the ladies who allowed me to use their photos and may all the glory go to God Almighty for the gifts He has given us.  Please visit each of their blogs, leaving them some special comment love and following them on their journey.
