Aww…some Monday’s Music Moves Me

Turning 21

The Family went to Disney World in 2003. While in one of the gift shops I captured this image of our middle granddaughter. I thought, “What could define the American child better than Mickey Mouse ears and a large McDonald’s drink. Well on April 16th this young lady turned 21. She is a senior in college and on target to graduate a semester early. Her interest is in sports medicine.

Monday’s Music Moves Me

Let me thank the admins of 4M for allowing me to host this month, even with my limited coding skills. For my final theme I have chosen to honor the granddaughter featured above and challenge you to pick songs from artists born in April. Let’s hear what you found. Have a blessed week.

First up is American Idol’s first winner and star. Yes, Kelly Clarkson was born in April. The middle granddaughter is a very well balanced young woman. She has never been a drama queen and takes pretty much everything in stride. She is stronger than some people might think.

Of the four grandchildren Em is the “Old Soul” of the bunch and most resembles an only child. Since I am an only child, we get along great and probably understand each other better than others. She likes country and pop music from days gone bye and has taken a liking to “vinyls”. So in honor of her country tastes I have chosen fellow Okie, Vince Gill, for the next tune.

Our birthday girl has a strong Christian faith and is going on a mission trip later this year. It seems only fitting to close this post with a couple of April born Christian artists. First up is Matthew West making a guest appearance in a Casting Crowns video, “Nobody”. As Christians, we are nobody, trying to tell everybody about somebody who saved our soul.

  1. DP,

    It was such an honor to have you onboard this month as honorary co-host! You gave the 4M party some great themes to build some nice playlists. Your granddaughter is a lovely young woman. I know you’re not only proud of your girl but call yourself blessed. She has everything going for her, doesn’t she? What a wonderful way to walk in the world in Jesus’ light! I pray for God’s goodness to be with her all the days of her life and may she have many, more birthdays to come! Thanks for sharing your marvelous song choices to honor your birthday girl, my friend. Have a boogietastic week!

    Kelly Clarkson is a great entertainer. I love how she has done what it takes to keep her career going. Haters gotta hate. And Vince Gill is always a solid bet.

  3. I’ve pretty much watched her grow up. I’ve watched all your grands grow up. She was adorable back then and beautiful now. She’ll have a wonderful career. You and your wife helped mold her into what she is today. Well done.

    Love the play list. Great dedication.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week, my friend. 🙂

    Happy birthday (again) to your granddaughter. At 21 so many don’t have direction in her life but she is focused and ambitious. Of course, she could change directions but that’s OK. She’ll do well in whatever she sets her heart on. Vince Gill and Kelly Clarkson were good choices, but I also enjoyed the rhythms of the Casting Crowns song.
