Take My World for Granted

I had my iTunes playlist on random Saturday and some of the songs took me back. One, in particular, caused me to stop my housework in its tracks. Jars of Clay, "Worlds Apart". Like many nostalgic songs, one reminded me of another. Toad the Wet Sprocket, "I Will Not Take These Things for Granted". Not necessarily the same thematically, but musically they blend well. Listen to both. Turn up the volume. And just close your eyes. When I do that, what do I see? I see a boy alone in his college dorm trying to figure life out. Then, I found meaning in song. Later I would find meaning in something greater.
