Memories

In your days, do you ever hear a song or smell something that takes you back to your childhood, to memories you haven't thought about since then? I heard a song recently that triggered memories of hard church pews and stained glass windows. It was when the MC's sang a worship song on Wednesday night called "When God Ran". I would've thought it was newly written, except for the memories it brought back. I was going crazy wondering how I knew it. So I called my mom the next day -- and it turns out there was a lady who used to sing that song at our church during offering, when I was 5 or something. It's so interesting to me how many memories are actually in our brains, and that they stay there forever. It only takes something familiar to bring them back up.

So funny, I grew up singing that song in church. I would always make the "grown-ups" cry! ha ha.
