Topic: SINGING

"A tune's like a staircase -- walk up on it. "
-- Ma Rainey
Comment: And when you sing, sing as if God is listening…for He is.

"To sing is to love and to affirm, to fly and soar, to coast
into the hearts of the people who listen, to tell them that
life is to live, that love is there, that nothing is a promise,
but that beauty exists, and must be hunted for and found.
That death is a luxury, better to be romanticized and
sung about than dwelt upon in the face of life. "
-- Joan Baez

Comment: Half-right and half-wrong, Joan. Without a living faith in God through Christ then the love that is affirmed is only human. Yes, you can coast into the hearts of the people who listen but it would be better to coast into the heart of God by singing His praises. Yes, life is there to live but we can only live half of life with a human heart. What a great change can come into a person's heart when they turn their heart over to Christ and get a new heart…a whole heart made by God. Nothing may be a promise from folk singer Baez, but with God, everything is a promise that He will keep forever and ever. Beauty exists, and all beauty was made by God, and all beauty reflects God. To find God look within for His kingdom already exists within you. In His kingdom, you will find Him. When you find Him look for His Son hanging upon an old rugged Cross. Death is not a luxury but the most tragic of events turned into the most glorious event of a lifetime if you have accepted Christ before you depart this orb.

Of all musical instruments the human voice is the most
beautiful, for it is made by God.
-- Shusha Guppy
