Good songs are often powerful for me. I love worship time at church, and in college, I loved it when my friends and I would have hymn sings together. When I hear a song I haven't heard in a long time that meant something to me at one point, I still tear up.
We have two wedding weekends coming up in October -- the wedding mania has slowed down for us in the past couple years (it's on to babies now :~)), but this year, we've had four! Anyway, in the second one, the bride and groom are taking song requests from their guests beforehand, which I think is an amazing idea. :~) So I put in my requests -- the song I walked down the aisle to and our "first dance" song.
Here they are:
When God Made You: Newsong feat. Natalie Grant
Lost in This Moment: Big and Rich
"If the God you believe in as an idea doesn’t start showing up in what happens to you in your own life, you have as much cause for concern as if the God you don’t believe in as an idea does start showing up. It is absolutely crucial, therefore, to keep in constant touch with what is going on in your own life’s story and to pay close attention to what is going on in the stories of others’ lives. If God is present anywhere, it is in those stories that God is present. If God is not present in those stories, then they are scarcely worth telling." ~ Frederick Buechner
