Piwano.

June 1, 2010

Spent half an hour playing through hymns on the church piano today.

What is it about music that soothes the chafed heart?  Not just listening to it (that can get wearisome), but producing it.  Making music, inviting the heart to worship.

Sometimes the heart’s too heavy to lift songs to the Savior.  But the fingers are rarely unwilling.  And as the music rises to the Savior, the heart eventually follows suit.

Sweetness.

    I wish I could have been there to lend words to your music…but that might be selfish of me. 😉
    I’m glad you had a sweet time today…I have been known to do that early on a Saturday morning when the whole school is quiet. Those ballet studios have fabulous acoustics!

    just like there’s something about sight that lends itself to compassion, there’s something about song that lends itself to worship. I don’t think time spent singing or playing hymns is ever wasted time…

    beautiful description, tia!! 🙂
    and how true that sitting by the piano doing what God’s gifted us with can glorify Him and uplift our hearts :).
