A few hours later we found ourselves at a Switchfoot concert, watching a documentary of their time on the road and in the waves, and hearing an acoustic set of some new and old music. Tears stung my eyes when they shared what is now their current radio hit. In my peripheral vision, I saw him wiping a tear away, too.
Thus was born my song of the year. Some people have a word or phrase of the year, I usually have a song. When I hear that said song, it takes me back to the emotions of that year, the goals, the hopes, the dreams. When the calendar changed to January, I decided this song was my anthem. Every time I hear it I get pumped up, I get excited, I remember.
Right now, there is a lot on my heart that this song represents, but I'm not ready to share it all here, just yet. But I promise I won't forget it - I'll have this song to remind me of those things.
If you haven't had the privilege of hearing the latest Switchfoot release, check it out here, you'll be glad you did.
