3. “Thank You” by 33 Miles
Released in 2008, this song is one of the older songs in our library. Although the message of gratitude is clearly one that still resonates among listeners today. Here’s what Melissa had to say:
“I love this song because it puts me in right frame of mind to start my day. It’s at the top of my Good Morning playlist!”
What an excellent idea to begin your day with thankfulness for all God’s blessings. And to do it with music? Even better!
