Music – A blanket thru grief
I’ve had a few people lately ask “what is helping?”
Every day is different. Every situation needs a different crutch or band-aid. I thought that maybe these songs could help someone else, as I’ve searched many times for song lists that help others through grief, only finding a few.
Music touches the soul in a special way. Sometimes it lifts me up and sometimes it causes me to break, but even in those lowest moments I still let the song play. If it is causing that much emotion in my heart and mind, there is something there that Toby wants me to hear.
Here are some of the songs that I’ve found help me. I love this line “Sometimes our soul needs a soundtrack.” For right now, this is mine:
Beam Me Up – Pink
Amazing Grace – Peter Hollens
There, There Katie – Josh Gray
Jealous of the Angels – Donna Taggart
Stars – Grace Potter
Who You’d Be Today – Kenny Chesney
Waiting on an Angel – Ben Harper
Outskirts of Heaven – Craig Campbell
Make You Feel My Love – Adele
I’m Already There – Lonestar
They Will Be Done – Hillary Scott
What songs have you used to help in your grief journey? Maybe they remind you of your loved one, or have lyrics that give you hope?
