Music washes away from the soul
the dust of everyday life.~Berthold Auerbach
There's music in the gushing of a rill;
There's music in all things, if men had ears:
Their earth is but an echo of the spheres.
Music is what feelings sound like.
A painter paints pictures on canvas. But musicians paint their pictures on silence.
Take a music bath once or twice a week for a few seasons. You will find it is to the soul what a water bath is to the body.~Oliver Wendell Holmes
He who sings scares away his woes. ~Cervantes
Does music touch your soul?
Can it paint the sky the color of sunset?
Do the wind blow easterly and monsoon without a sound?
Do the flutter and sway of Autumn leaves, falling to ground, gather without a hush, whispering the nearness of frost?
Did music score any of the moments you were sad, happy, carefree?
Didn't it signify milestones in your life or your child's?
Does the wonder and splendor of the Creator strike a deafening chorus, which fill your heart to bursting, and feet to dancing, just like the Psalmist?
Just think, or imagine a world without music. Although some are born without hearing, some due to acquired illness, still music goes on, written or unwritten.
I do believe God wrote music and sings for us, in every moment of our walk.
He can dream dreams for and in us.
He can paint and create marvelous objects for and through us.
And therefore, He co-writes music with us.
It heals every woe of our soul, eases up tired muscles and bones,
fills our heart with love .......
and the patter of the rain rushing down to ease the dryness of the land, sends beautiful notes to the sleeping seeds beneath.
I love the sight, sound and touch of music.
Can you remember special moments or events in your life when you hear certain songs?
When We All Get to Heaven
1. Sing the wondrous love of Jesus, Sing His mercy and His grace; In the mansions bright and blessed He'll prepare for us a place. 2. While we walk the pilgrim pathway Clouds will overspread the sky; But when trav'ling days are over, Not a shadow, not a sigh. 3. Let us then be true and faithful, Trusting, serving every day; Just one glimpse of Him in glory Will the toils of life repay. 4. Onward to the prize before us! Soon His beauty we'll behold; Soon the pearly gates will open, We shall tread the streets of gold. Chorus: When we all get to heaven, What a day of rejoicing that will be! When we all see Jesus, We'll sing and shout the victory.
And here is Pachelbel's Canon in D.
Music at its best.
We owe it to Him.
And I heard a sound from heaven like the roar of rushing
waters and like a loud peal of thunder. The sound I heard
was like that of harpists playing their harps.

And who doesn't love Fraulein Maria (played by Julie Andrews) of the Sound of Music
I think kids of today should watch the movie. Up 'til now, it never fails to inspire me.
For when you are downcast or in a situation of doubt, you can sing The Hills Are Alive With the Sound of Music.
And when you are in a difficult time, waiting for God's answer, you need patience and to trust in Him, go sing Climb Every Mountain.
I also love the message of Sixteen Going on Seventeen. It is a love and courtship message for the young people.
Even when you are afraid of the storm, you can sing with the Family Von Trapp, like counting your blessings, with My Favorite Things.
There, isn't it true that when you are afraid, in doubt, in a valley of waiting, insecure or with an illness, we only need to sing, to Praise, to Worship our God, our Provider, our Healer........ Then, even as we sing, we are relieved, we become content, joyful and hopeful. For we are given a light yoke. He invites us to cast all our burdens upon Him.
