The Top 50 Albums of 2016

2016 was a massive year for music.

I love that your smile can’t be taken. I love that you’re you, and that no matter how people view you, you’re still you. I love that you’re confident in yourself and in me. I love that you’re a Jesus follower and that I’m the one you choose to lead prayer. I love you more than anything this life can offer. I love this smile, and the person behind it because I know both are authentic. I love you…
