Don’t know this artist or his music … or how to speak Spanish… but can I just say…

SI to David singing in Spanish

SI to more serenades at the Archie Piano

SI to more serenades period

SI to that “cry” in his voice 😭😭😭

SI to #scruffchuleta

SI to HEARING THE WHOLE SONG!!!!!!!

SI to David’s positive vibes lately

SI to that cool way David clips the end of some of the Spanish phrases in the song, not easy to do, not sure if this makes any sense

but a big

NO to David wearing a red suit and polka dot ascot for his Spanish album cover… of course, I’d still buy it tho’ 🙂

How about you guys??? What did you think? What does the song mean, btw? 🙂

All I’m going to say is that it’s not my usual type of song but their voices blend really nicely together. 🙂

And, strangely, I find that when David comes in, it becomes a completely different song. Like the song itself morphs into something else… and I feel it on a deeper level. The power of The Archuleta. 🙂

Have you heard the song? Will you buy it? Thoughts?

All these feelings inside….

…omigosh did anyone else have a vlog flashback when they watched this????

Did it take you right back to those glory days of David’s quirky, rambly, David-y vlogs of old??

Just me? mkay.

Seriously though, just having him look relaxed and happy, wearing a Pikachu T-shirt fan gift, sitting at his “Archie Piano” with the wobbly seat and playing a song we have loved for TEN STRAIGHT YEARS.

“Quirks and perks” sums everything up perfectly, does it not? 😆 😆 😆

I can’t process it all right now. It just feels like we’ve all been through a lot together and are getting so many rewards from this guy. Our guy. (Well, not “ours” but wonderfully on loan when he’s so inclined.)

This whole week of festivities is the anniversary party I never knew I needed, you know?

Seeing David embrace the magic that Crush has been and celebrating it with such love and Davidness just makes me incredibly happy.

He’s “owning” Crush now… yes, he has amazing new music but he’s paying tribute to where he’s been, where’s he’s been WITH ALL OF US CHEERING HIM ON! … and joyfully tipping one of his many caps to the huge bop of a song that launched him on an even-bigger stage than American Idol’s.

I want to give a huge hug to whoever thought up this #10YearsofCrush campaign… sheer brilliance. It’s been a blast to see fans from back in the day come back and rediscover why they fell in love with David in the first place.

And I actually learned a few things from the great questions and answers in the Q&A… here’s my personal favourite: 🙂 🙂 🙂

Stomping the Roses…

…smashing out all the feelings inside…
.

View this post on Instagram

Something I have been doing on and off the last few years is therapy. I decided this year I would be more consistent with it. This week I had a smashing therapy session. As you can see, I managed to smash quite a bit. 👨‍🔧 I’ve met with chiropractors, kiniseologists, etc and they would all say the same thing: “You hold a lot of anger and fear in your shoulders.” I was a little disconnected with myself, unaware of what I was holding in. Well, I met with my chirokinetictherapist who loosened it up a bit and I suddenly started getting major road rage and angry in general. I met with her a couple weeks later and asked her what had happened. She said the energy is ready to come out and strong ways are through shouting, physical exercise, punching bag, etc. It was time for a smashing session. I didn’t realize how much I had held in. I thought by letting it slide it would go away. I had no idea I was holding so much in and not letting go of. Boy, did I surprise myself lol. I’m keeping some of these as a souvenir. As I began I felt guilty. I thought letting myself get angry and aggressive would hurt someone. My therapist asked “did you hurt anyone in this process?” I said, “no… but maybe I sent them negative energy.” She said “your energy went into these objects. You haven’t hurt anyone. You gave your energy somewhere to go and leave you and stop holding it inside.” I still have a ways to go, but I am grateful I have begun my journey. God has made me stronger from my experiences, even in the pain, but He also sent Christ, His Son so that I don’t have to hold onto it. I can hand it over to Him and heal from what and who have hurt me; heal from things I’ve disappointed myself with and couldn’t let go of. As Tasha Cobbs says, “There is power in the name of Jesus to break every chain..” And I am a recipient of that truth. “I feel the chains falling” And I’m ready for a change. Don’t be afraid to feel broken. A muscle needs to break down before it grows. Don’t be afraid of therapy. There is healing when we ask for help. Don’t be afraid to fall on your knees and cry out in prayer. God listens and comes to the broken-hearted and humbled child. #therapy #thoughts

Revisiting I Know He Lives

I have this on my iPod and for a while it was on repeat, but I haven’t watched the actual video for ages.

But something told me to go look for it today and, man, just what I needed.

I almost can’t believe how good this is. Both the song and David’s performance of it. It’s one of my most favourite things he’s ever done, tbh.

So simple. So incredibly soulful.

Everyone’s paying rapt attention, not fidgeting or moving. David’s totally in the zone, like he’s channelling the song… his song. Even the baby claps at the end! 🙂

I know it’s not a Christmas tune but boy, I really think it would be an incredible gospel hit if he ever released it.

I just feel it seep right through my skin and into my soul, you know?

How about you guys?? What do you think of it??
