“I believe in my daughter’s civil rights as a mother. I think that my daughter deserves everything she desires in life. She’s a good girl. She’s a wonderful child. I don’t think God made one color flower. I think he made many. Everybody should have the right to share homes and finances with somebody that they care about. You know on those types of things I’m very supportive. When it comes to marriage, I think that civil rights need to be for all.”

“I can hear the breathing of my sleeping newborn son in his bassinet next to the bed. My ten years old daughter, Rachael, opens the bedroom door and whispers, Mom? into the room, trying not to wake the baby. Not seeing me, she leaves. She doesn’t even consider looking in the closet on the floor. Her mother would never be there. She’s right. This person sitting on the closet floor is nothing like her mother. I can’t believe I’m here myself. I’m convinced that I’m losing my mind. This is not me.”

We’ve heard it said that there are “seasons” in our lives. In this stage of my life journey, I find myself pondering the well discussed subject of how we spend our time. Last night, following the show at Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, I enjoyed some “one-on-one” time with my sweet daughter, Abigail. We spent precious time together, talking over one of our fave desserts… FROZEN YOGURT! 😋 The topic of music came up and how it effects us. I may be a bit biased, but my daughter is wise for her age! 😊 She told me how she deleted a few songs from her library because at the ripe old age of 16 (my words inserted there, and I definitely wouldn’t want to be that age again! 😳), she realized that as much as she liked the music, some of the lyrics weren’t things she wanted imprinted on her mind. She said, even though she wasn’t really listening to the words, she knew her subconscious mind was. Again… pretty dang smart! After we got home, I pondered what my daughter said about the music we listen to and how it truly can impact our overall mood and lives. • On this Sabbath day, let us ponder over what kind of music we listen to and allow to influence our thoughts, and subsequently, our actions. Does it qualify as uplifting or does it bring us down? And like my Abi, what are we willing to remove from our playlists that might have a negative effect on us and the time we spend listening to it? • I've gone into more detail and included a few of my favorite Bible verses on the subject on my Facebook page and at MarieOsmond.com/sundaymessage. #Happy #Sunday! • #seasons #music #musicismedicine
