1308. So she poured out the liquid music of her voice to quench the thirst of her spirit. ~Edited quote by Nathaniel Hawthorne

God respects me when I work;
but God loves me when I sing.
~Rabindranath Tagore

Anything worth thinking about
is worth singing about.

Which is why we have songs of
praise, songs of love, songs of sorrow.

Songs the shepherds sing, on the lonely mountains,
while the sheep are honoring the grass, by eating it.

The dance-songs of the bees, to tell where the flowers,
suddenly, in the morning light, have opened.

A chorus of many, shouting to
heaven, or at it, or pleading.

Or that greatest of love affairs,
a violin and a human body.

And a composer,
maybe hundreds of years dead.

I think of Schubert, scribbling on
a café napkin. Thank you, thank you.

~Excerpted verses from a poem
by Mary Oliver

I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise You(God). ~Psalm 63:5 ✝

  1. I hope that by the time I pass this life to the next…I can carry a tune in Heaven..or perhaps it won’t matter there…yet here, for some strange reason, there are those who wonder what that strange noise is that I call singing 🙂

  2. I love music of all kinds and they have a place in everyone’s life. It is the way we can give praise to God and feel a closeness to Him. I am one of the worst singers to come around but still I sing and bellow out my heart to our God. 🙂 ❤

    • Oh I absolutely agree V! And I love to sing but can’t carry a tune in a bucket! That’s why in church I’m so glad my voice can’t be heard above the others because like you I LOVE to sing praises to our God❣️😘
