Prior to receiving recognition by Christian Radio Stations, Breaking the Silence formed in Uniontown, Pennsylvania in 2006. This Christian Rock Band soon changed their name to The Letter Black. Perhaps black reflects growing up in coal country or that it is part of a lung disease contracted by coal miners. Whatever the reason, today’s featured song Best of Me is one of my favorite songs from the Letter Black.
And Abel brought of the firstborn of his flock and of the fat portions. And the Lord had respect and regard for Abel and for his offering, 5 But for [a]Cain and his offering He had no respect or regard. So Cain was exceedingly angry and indignant, and he looked sad and depressed, Genesis 4:4-5.
Prior to marrying Leanne, we attended a marriage conference in Cleveland, Ohio where my parents lived at the time. One of the speakers warned future spouses not to give their significant other “the leftovers.” When you’re at the end of a long day and have nothing else to give, this is what the speaker meant. In the same manner, God wants us to spend time with Him when we are at our best and not our worse. This is the theme that you will find in the Letter Black’s Best of Me.
