Five Minute Friday~~ Song

05/17/2013 - Author: Jennifer - 13 Comments

Every Friday, Lisa-Jo Baker over at Tales from a Gypsy Mama gives us a word and a challenge. To write for 5 minutes without abandon. It is fun and I encourage you to try it. Here we go! The word is…



I can’t sing, but I do enjoy listening to music. My son also enjoys music and songs that are written for his 2 year old mind get stuck in my head. Usually, just one part of a song will play over and over in my mind. This is annoying, but it did get me thinking about  what I put in my son’s head.

Am I speaking words of encouragement into him? Am I speaking words that will boost his confidence while speaking truth? What does my son think when he hears his mama’s voice? Is it annoying? Is it soothing? Have I spoken words that when they replay in his mind, they annoy him or make him smile? Or have I spoken words that like a bad song, replay over and over in his mind and bring him down?

What about my husband? Do I speak words of encouragement to him or have my words hurt him and that is the song on repeat in his mind?

I want to put positive thoughts in my son’s and husband’s head–things they can repeat over and over again. Words of encouragement.

I usually get annoyed when same phrase gets stuck in my head ,but if it is a good word/encouragement/positive thought I put in someone’s head, I hope it wouldnt be thought of as an annoyance.

    So true, my friend. I often think, if I could replay my words from the day, would it be something I would want to hear. Love this.

  3. What a perfect reminder of how very important the songs we hear and the words we speak really are. I’m definitely reminded of this as my children sing their favorite songs. Great message here. -visiting from FMF today. 🙂

  4. Dear Jen,
    So true…the songs and words we put in our kid’s mind and ours can make such a difference in their and our outlook…wise..praying speech therapy is going well for your little guy 🙂 Happy Friday 🙂 P.S. I can’t sing either, and I love music 🙂

    • Thank you Dolly. Maybe God is keeping us humble by not blessing us with good voices–be blessed:)

  5. Just love this. Exactly – what are we letting our kids hear? even radio – TV? Making sure God’s goodness goes into their ears, through their eyes and into their spirits.
    Speak softly; be gentle; learn to be at peace in every situation.
    Many blessings – found you on Twitter #fiveminutefriday
    I can’t sing either – but I do it anyway.

  6. Such a great way to think of how our words affect others….especially the people closest to us! I will definitely be reflecting on this more! Thank you for sharing your thoughts!!

  7. Oh this post got me thinking about the type of music and the kinds of songs I am singing. Thanks for sharing!
