Sunday Pause (Paws): Music…It Moves The Soul

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and let some music take you away.

I watched the movie “August Rush” on Netflix recently and it moved me to tears. This movie is about a little boy who lives in an orphanage and he runs away to look for his parents. His parents are musicians and he is a music prodigy. Aside of the fact that the plot of the movie is incredibly heartwarming, the music they play throughout is beautiful! I found myself crying and filled with goosebumps at times. Music has a way of doing that doesn’t it?

We all have certain songs that really move us. One of mine is called “I See The Lord.” I can not listen to that song without getting both tears and goosebumps.

Music is powerful I believe because it makes us “think.” We get lost in it and our minds go to places deep within our souls. When I hear “I See The Lord” I literally picture Jesus and his robe touching the earth. I am not absolutely sure why this song has always moved me in such a way. I think it may because, as I was once told, I talk in a way where I expect a Utopia world. There is so much wrong in the world and picturing just even a little touch of Jesus’s robe brings me to Utopia! Music takes us away!

Music is relaxing and comforting. In fact, I play music for Cino all of the time. Especially when I leave or when we are in the car on the way to the vet. I have a couple of CD’s but the one I play the most is pictured below.

I also sing to Cino at times. When I do she wags her tail and closes her eyes.

So why not put on some music today and let it relax, comfort and take you (and your pet) away!

Happy Sunday!

*I have a YouTube video below for those interested in listening to the song “I See The Lord.” I have to add to take notice that animals are used in the video. ALL living beings belong to God and he cares about all of us.

    I saw the movie, August Rush too! I am covered in goosebumps just thinking about it. And let me share a story with you, LeeAnn, that I think will give YOU the goosebumps. I sing to my cats too. I have a song I made up that I sing every night … a goodnight song. When our Rocky was dying in my arms, I told him I was going to sing that goodnight song one last time before he went to Heaven. As I sang …. he SANG with me!! I fumbled, tears pouring down my cheeks, as I was shocked out of my skull. Rocky was not a verbal cat but spoke in other ways to me. The Vet, she too could not believe what was happening and later told me she has not ever witnessed this. He had been given the first injection and as I held him, I could feel him relax. And then I sang. After I was done singing, he kept talking, as if to say, “Mom, I know how much you sacrificed for me (I could not go to see my Mom before she died because of Rocky for starters …) and I know how much you and Daddy Love me. I LOVE you so much and I don’t want to go but I must.) I balled my eyes out! Just balled. I SO know our animals have a Soul and are Loved by God … no doubt in my mind!!! Have a great Sunday!!!! Much Love to you! 💞🐾💞

            Yes it does. Rocky was only 12 years old. He never recovered from his brother’s Karma’s death, who was his soulmate. His little body had just so much wrong with it, that on top of the intense grieving he went through he just couldn’t pull himself around. This Spring will afford me what I require to assist my hurting heart.

    I love this post! I haven’t listened yet but will! When you said you sing to Cino, I also sing to both Eli and Sophie, they each have their own song I made up of famous tunes; for Eli it is You Are My Sunshine and I use his name (he likes to make meep noises, not quite meows, like he is trying to sing along too, and he walks around my legs brushing up against me!); for Sophie it is Oh How I Love Jesus only I use her name; her reaction is just to sit and listen! Bless you for all you do for animals, I love your blog!
