Gods Symphony

Many a post ago I had written about how my father would take me fairy hunting.
How we would look at the things around us (falling leaves ) and then he would play music and ask me to picture the leaves dancing.
Since those moments when I was just a babe (4-6) I have always seen the beauty in everything. When older I would say to people see the music.
Well of late I have been dreaming alot about truth.
Sometimes my dreams would be filled with music and others just the Lord and I speaking truth to each other.
It has been the last few days I felt the need to write about Gods symphony.
Pastor kevin had spoken about worship time not being about the music but your personal time with God.
Sometimes I think the music and the lyrics are an added bonus when one may perhaps lack the words of praise to Him.
However I am seeing of late it is about our personal words to him to others, kind or cruel that make up the music to His ears.
The words of our lives are our personal symphony to Him.

Have you ever listened to a piece of classical music and some of the instruments and their sounds make you feel something wether it be joy or sadness or fear.
Has a piece of music ever made you cry? The notes alone.
Think about each instrument and their sound as the words we speak to others on a daily basis.
Anger: The kettle drums
Strength and power: The horns
Fear:The cello
Joy and Sadness: The violins

A piece of music can bring forth many emotions and so can our words.
How we choose to treat others through our actions or use of our words are the notes of our personal symphony to God.
He hears our anger fear joy and love.
When God calls us home what will your symphony sound like to Him?
The symphony will be our lives replayed.
Make it Beautiful music to His ears.
Choose to play and speak the instrument of Truth.

I have enclosed my favourite scene from American Beauty.
This scene makes me cry everytime I watch it as I can see the music in the simple things in life. The beauty of the words spoken.

Three Two For

Was just sitting here checking my messages and having a quick chit chat with Roxanne before bed and suddenly felt overwhelmed with numbers in my head.
324 to be exact.
In fact I feel rather overwhelmed and tearful (but in a good way)
I feel the need to share with what hit me so plain and clear.

The number 3:

Three Wise men
Three Years of Preaching the Gospel
Three Crosses
Three days before Jesus rose
Father Son Holy Spirit the trinity.

Then came two which has "3" ways of spelling Two To Too
but it was the number Two that was in my mind.
Two eyes to see Him
Two ears to hear Him
Two hands to serve Him
Two feet to walk righteously

These two numbers are truly important numbers in this world, However the next number Four looked different and seemed to be the most important.
I couldn't figure it out and then He showed me.
Not Four but For

For You

I thought I would share this moment with all of you.
May these numbers Bless you

I Have been thinking about how we as humans may percieve things in this world.
We sometimes covet or envy the people and things around us.
Beit friendships,or monetary happiness.
However do we look close enough at these things and really understand the depths of a friendship or a possesion? Do we see the cost involved or are we oblivious to our own selfishness?
If we did would we envy or covet these things?
What do you see,Hydro poles or Gods energy?
Look how the hydro poles are shaped.
Is this Gods way of showing us he is here with us or just coincedence?

I guess that's a matter of Perspective.

While pondering this today I received this email.
I love the way God works and confirms the questions I have in my mind.

One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country
with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live.

They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.

On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, 'How was the trip?'

'It was great, Dad.'

'Did you see how poor people live?' the father asked.

'Oh yeah,' said the son.

'So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?' asked the father.

The son answered:

'I saw that we have one dog and they had four.

We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end.

We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night.

Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon.

We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight.

We have servants who serve us, but they serve others.

We buy our food, but they grow theirs.

We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them.'

The boy's father was speechless.

Then his son added, 'Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are.'

Isn't perspective a wonderful thing? Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying about what we don't have.
