Lost in a Melody

My dear friend Heather forwarded the following poem to me this morning. I just love it. I hope you enjoy it too.

Lost in a melody

Cares recede.

For a beautiful moment,

Soothing strings bathe

The collective consciousness

In a peaceful reverie,

Revealing what love

Can achieve.

My heart, O God, is steadfast, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make music (Psalm 57:7 NIV).

The Music Rises

Once again I asked my friend Heather for permission to post one of her poems. Since my hubby is a musician and I recognize music’s power to give wings to my heart, this poem speaks volumes.

The music rises
In a crescendo
And strikes a chord
Deep within.
Exhilarating.
Jubilant.
No longer staccato notes,
The angelic timbre
Resounds and reassures
He is everpresent.

The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing (Zephaniah 3:17 NIV).
