The Sound of Music



Usually the sound of music is soothing and joyous to me.  There are times when this is not the case.  I’m talking about the detested tooting of one’s own horn.

Nothing hurts the ears as much as listening to those hollow notes.  When I’m the guilty musician I cringe at the thought of what nonsense I played; feeling so foolish up on that high pedestal belting out off key notes.  You would think one would have sense to stop; but no usually once started on the band wagon the song is played till the bitter end.   These are the times when I wish I could walk backwards and erase what just happened.

I envy the people who walk to the beat of their own drum.  Who have no desire or need to pick up their horn and toot just to be heard.  They have a song to sing but it is different from the horn blowers.  Their song is soothing and joyous.  It is an inner song that doesn’t cause racket just harmony.  These are the real musicians in life.

Proverbs 27:2 states “Let other people praise you-even strangers; never do it yourself”.  With that being recorded and without further ado maybe it is time to face the music.  Release the hold of the loud senseless noise that interferes with the soft melody within our soul.

Set the tone; find the rhythm of life; and play your part. Harmony has a nice ring.

Praise be to God!
