You’re an Overcomer

This is one my all time favorite videos. Yes, I’ve shared it before but I felt I should share it today.

The Healing of Music and Art

20150225_210030

Nothing will bring healing quicker than beautiful music and art.

Let us wash our own scars away, and bring healing to those that are burned.

Who do you know, that could use some poetry?

And When Her Heart is Full

100_1330

And when her heart is full she sings,

an overflowing of divinity

embracing the adventure of faith,

diving into the love

of her Creator-King speaking

in a new language,

mysteries from heaven.

      

And when she turns to me

and sings of our love welding

with the depth of her eyes

those incredible eyes,

I am amazed, truly

amazed

all over again.

      

Here is some music my wife and I enjoy.

I love you sweetheart, and always will!

When There’s Fire

20150512_135328

When there’s fire in our art, the fragile becomes beautiful

the sensitive becomes powerful, and music

builds us a fortress. Words on wings

become our prayers

seeds really

from another world

to show us the way.

Friday Night Culture – The Beatles

the beatles

As I was looking at some music from the 1960’s, and I got no further than this group – the Beatles. They are the most famous and best selling music group of all time. I love the older Beatles music. It’s more about love than revolution, which came later.

Speaking of love there is something wonderful about the way we looked at love way back then. Most of these lyrics here speak of a love that lasts forever. Naive? No, hopeful and positive, with a sense of commitment.

Here are some of my favorites. I’m keeping this short so you can just enjoy the music.

Have  great weekend! Peace!

Friday Night Culture – Violins!

violin

As you know there is something very special about the sound of the violin. Few instruments can bring out human emotions, or touch us so uniquely. I have heard violins express such deep feelings so beautifully, that it is no wonder they are so popular.

I am not quite back from taking a break, but almost, and I wanted to share this with you.

The first video is from one of my favorite violinists, Lindsey Stirling. Here she plays the song My Immortal. I love the way this song carries emotions. This version shows Lindsey in concert, and I think the lights and the audience add something special.

I had not heard of the Princesses of Violin until recently, but I love how they combine the classical music of Mozart here, with a contemporary sound. I counted six violins in addition to the other instruments, and Mozart’s music is wonderful!

Finally it’s back to Lindsey, with another of my favorites, River Flows in You. I don’t think I have ever heard a more beautiful sound than a violin accompanied by a harp. Just heavenly!

Have a great weekend everyone! I wish you peace!
