Praise God for the gift of music! What would life be like without it? A rather dull form of existence it would be, to my mind at least! Music is such a blessing!
Fiddles playing merrily amid the swirling leaves at a fall festival... bagpipes bringing their thrillingly powerful sound into Christmas carols in the wonderful whiteness of winter... flutes joyously welcoming the return of the flowers and beautiful breezes of spring... banjos picking and strumming at fun summertime picnics and parties... a piano for all seasons, and a violin for every time!
Silly songs for singing, story songs for remembering things, hymns for praising God, crazy songs for in the car, instrumentals for background, symphonies for studying, soaring soundtracks for reliving stirring scenes, and best of all, dance music - for the obvious! And for the joy of listening! I think very little could be worse than having once heard excellent music and then being cut off from it forever... it would be almost unbearable. Hearing is a miracle - and music is among the most wonderful things to hear!
