Big Love, Small Moments

I really love listening to music. I have an emotional connection to it in ways which my wife thinks is strange. I will often ask her to listen out for a tiny little change in a song or the moment an instrument comes in which I get really excited about! Music has made me cry more times than I can count but is also something I derive a lot of joy from.

 

One of my favorite features of the music app Spotify is the Discover Weekly playlist where the app suggests music based on what you like. One day while listening to this playlist a song called Big Love, Small Moments by JJ Heller came on. As soon as it started I knew that this was an artist and style which I would enjoy and it has been a song which I have listened to numerous times since discovering it. The more I have listened to it the more I have become connected with the beautiful message it is communicating. This is a message I want to share with you today as it is applicable for the current situation we all find ourselves in. You can simply read the lyrics or listen along with the song below.

Heartbeats only happen one at a time, one at a time
You can’t rush a moment so don’t even try, don’t even try
There’s a symphony you’re missing
If you only listen you’ll find…

Big magic in the mundane
The big picture in a small frame
Everything is sacred when you take time to notice
Big love happens in the small moments
Big love happens in the small moments

There’s no use in chasing nickels and dimes, nickels and dimes
Riches all around you, open your eyes, open your eyes
You can’t buy the piece you’re after so don’t even try
‘Cause you’ll find…

Big magic in the mundane
The big picture in a small frame
Everything is sacred when you take time to notice
Big love happens in the small moments
Big love happens in the small moments

Feel the rain on your skin, feel my hand in your hand
You can’t do it all, so just do what you can
Feel the rain on your skin, feel my hand in your hand
You can’t do it all, so just do what you can

Feel the sun on your face (Feel the sun on your face)
Bare feet on the ground (Feet on the ground)
I know you’ll see beautiful things if you look around, yeah
Just look around
And you’ll find

Big magic in the mundane
The big picture in a small frame
Everything is sacred when you take time to notice the…
Big magic in the mundane
The big picture in a small frame
Everything is sacred when you take time to notice
Big love happens in the small moments
Big love happens in the small moments

Much Love,

Luke
