Miracles Do Happen

I find listening to music very therapeutic. All types of music be it opera to jazz can change a person's mood in minutes lifting spirits to great heights, stirring emotions by its imagery and sound. It amazes me how much wonderful music has been composed by many (mostly men) over the years that will last forever and evoke the same feelings as they do today. Music is the food of love in many ways. Written with dedication and love by the composer that is experienced by those who listen. Our lives would be very sombre without the magic that music gives to our hearts, souls and minds. It is difficult to comprehend the ugliness that exists in these turbulent times. Violence and discontent that was never meant to be. Composers and poets can see and express the majesty and grandeur that nature provides. One of the many gifts of God that we should give thanks for, not be hell-bent on destroying. This situation has got to its peak and will start to improve. Hopefully, we have learned something from this experience that will stay with us for the betterment of the world. If we can all appreciate the beauty in both nature and each other. Composers and poets can educate us with only twenty-six letters and eight notes, how can we not believe in miracles.

Shirley, amen to the miracle and gift of music. It does indeed reach to the very soul and provide solace and excitement, and gives us a voice to express love, joy, sadness, or praise. Beautifully written, including faith, current events, gratitude, and wonder. Loved it, a fave ~ John
