Music – A Poem

I love music and can’t imagine living my life without it. At home, I listen to music a lot: I play my iPod while I’m in the shower and getting dressed for work, I listen to CDs in my car, I listen to music whenever I’m doing housework, and I love to sing in church on Sunday.

Last week when I was in Austin I didn’t have much opportunity to listen to music, even though Austin is the live music capital of the world. I did listen to a little blues guitar at the Blue Moon, and I had my iPod along for the flight there and back, but otherwise we were just too busy. It made me realize how thankful I am that I have my music most of the time. In particular, I am thankful for my Christian music that uplifts my spirit and provides a means to praise my God.

So I decided to dedicate my Thankful Thursday poem to music.

Music

Melody, harmony, and rhythm
U
nited to the glory of God
S
weet sounds of praise
I
nvading my heart
C
apturing my soul

Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous;
   it is fitting for the upright to praise him. 
Praise the LORD with the harp;
   make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.
Sing to him a new song;
   play skillfully, and shout for joy.
Psalm 33:1-3 (NIV).

    Listening to music even in a shower? You love music! Music is another thing that I am thankful to God. He reintroduced me to it through Christian songs and I am loving it! 🙂

    • Rea, Well the iPod itself isn’t in the shower, it’s just in the bathroom, silly! 😉 It’s a great way to start the day with praising God in song – He can wash my soul while I wash my body. Peace, Linda

    This was just perfect, Linda! 🙂 What a beautiful thing to be thankful for. And I am too! I don’t get to listen as much as I used to, but music always makes my day better! Especially those songs that praise and worship Him!
    God bless you as you sing for Him today!

    • Deb, I’m glad I get to contribute to your music listening occasionally when I post a video on Monday (and sometimes other days)! I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t listen to my music. I suppose I would do a lot of humming in my head. 😉 Peace, Linda

    Music means so much to me too 🙂 I can always find a song or a melody that speaks my heart. I love me some music and I too am thankful for that ministry / gift.

    You have blessed me greatly today. May He return to you a hundredfold.

    Blessings much,

    • Ann, I’m glad you “liked” this poem so much. I can tell from your frequent video comments that music is important to you. It was kind of funny when I was in Austin, all sorts of things triggered song lyrics playing in my head. I can’t sing very well, but I enjoy music so much, especially when it is music that glorifies God. Peace, Linda
