Singing from the heart

I got caught. I couldn't believe it. I always try to be careful. This time I couldn't help myself. I had my i-pod on and I just burst out singing. How could I help myself? "The Lion Sleeps tonight" came on and I just had to sing out loud. I was swaying and swinging as if I was the only one in the world.

The problem was that I was walking down Washington Street and a young girl was just stepping out of her house. She looked at me and laughed and I was busted. Oh well! There could be worse things I could be doing.

I laughed after I got over my initial embarrassment. After all it wasn't me. It was the music in me and it just had to come out. It's like trying to contain the love of Jesus. You can try to put on a sour puss and walk around as if the world was on your shoulders. But at some point if you have the love of Christ in your heart it will come out and bring joy to you and the world around you.

So why try to hold it in? Go ahead and sing. Who knows? Someone who hears you may just start singing along. Wouldn't that be something?
