Heaven's Song

"Music is God's gift to man,
the only art of Heaven given to earth,
the only art of earth we take to Heaven."
Walter Savage Landor


Sweetie and I went to a concert on Mother's Day. The African Children's Choir put on an amazing show. I've been thinking the Hispanic music that has infused our church services with a salsa beat and toe-tapping rhythm would be a good match for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. But it has nothing on this group of talented and enthusiastic children. As soon as they opened their mouths, I was taken to a place of wonder and reverence. Not to mention I couldn't keep my hands from clapping and my bootie from shaking. There's just something about a drum beat that gets me going! A drum beat, a lively song, and a group of angels singing it.

I don't know for sure, but I believe that this is what Heaven sounds like. Go here. And if you ever get the chance to hear this choir, you won't be disappointed.


Feeling blessed,
Merry ME
