needle and thread

If you asked me to play you one song on my iPod that I hoped you would fall in love with, it would be “Needle and Thread” by Sleeping at Last. I played this game with a friend recently, asking him to pick a song on his iPod for me to listen to and I picked this one for him on mine. He picked some rap song, which made me feel like a nerd for picking this one. But I’d pick this one ten times out of ten…

This song makes my heart burn. Like when the disciples were walking down the road feeling pretty low, and Jesus came right up to them but they were somehow oblivious that it was him. Remember what they said?

32They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”


This week I was constantly humming and singing this song as I spent some time in the hospital welcoming Eli Stumpf into the world 🙂 It’s a perfect song for this little miracle man.

Take a listen to the lyrics of this ridiculously good song.

One thought on “needle and thread”

  1. Thanks for the band reference. Turns out these guys are right in my back yard.

    Oh yeah, the kid’s cute, too.
