Music Monday: "Best Days"


My kids talk about the day we've had, the events that have happened so far and whether or not it makes today, "The best day ever!" I try to tell them that they don't need to have a super amazing day every day, just have a good day, or a great day. But what do I know, I'm just the mom...

The topic of best days gets me pondering about some of my own "best" days I've had in my own life. The day I accepted Christ into my life as Lord and Savior, that's a big one. The day my husband asked me to marry him (March 2, 1996) and the day we were wed (8/3/96) are some of my best days. The days that each of my children were born into our lives, home and family are best days. Days that I get to be doing something fun with my whole family, making memories together are usually pretty great days too.

Here is a song that I love about "Best Days," Enjoy!


Best Days Lyrics by Geoff Moore and the Distance



Verse One
The river was deep, the water was cold,
I was only twelve years old.
My dad and me, trout fishing,
Waist deep in a Michigan stream.

He showed me how to make that fly,
Look like it was so alive.
And then he helped me understand,
How to be a fisher of men.

Chorus
And all the world was right,
And I felt so full and alive
In the wonder and the light,
And I would never be the same,
For I knew somehow I had changed.
Even now I'd have to say,
It was one of my best days.

Verse Two
It was like a rock, a lump in my throat,
I was eighteen years old,
But I had to say something
To the prettiest girl I'd ever seen.

A new world record was set that day,
For the stupid things I'd say.
I made her laugh, It must've been enough,
For by day's end we'd fall in love.

Chorus
And all the world was right,
And I felt so full and alive
In the wonder and the light,
And I would never be the same,
For I knew somehow I had changed.
Even now I'd have to say,
It was one of my best days.

Verse Three
Sometimes I look to the eastern sky,
Wondering what it will be like,
When we all finally learn,
Of the day You return.

What will I feel?
Where will I be?
Will it all seem like a dream?
I think it'll be like a long-lost friend,
Coming back to His family again.

Chorus
And all the world will be right,
And we'll feel so full and alive
In His wonder and His light,
And we will never be the same,
For I know we all will be changed,
And we will surely say,
This is the very best of days,
This is the very best,
The very best of days.



Isaiah 60:19-20

19 The sun will no more be your light by day,
    nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you,
for the Lord will be your everlasting light, 
    and your God will be your glory. 
20 Your sun will never set again,
    and your moon will wane no more;
the Lord will be your everlasting light,
    and your days of sorrow will end.
