Music that Calms Us from Kate Dobin
When my kids were babies, I sang to them often. It was just as much a way to pass the time myself as it was to calm them. As is likely common, I would revert to songs of my childhood – songs whose words will never leave my head no matter how many years go by without recalling them. For me, those always seem to be songs I learned in children’s church choir. In the past few weeks, as I once again seek a way to calm my children and a way to pass the time myself, these songs have returned. I share two of these songs with you all. These songs fill me with gratitude for the gift of these simple times, and for the reminder that God is with us – Day by Day.
