Here’s week 2
This one’s a little bit about gardens
And another passion…music.
I’ll be back to regular blogs in another week or so.
Sometimes I forget
Just how much
Music and nature have in common.
Until this morning.
Before I left for church I reminded myself
To cut that single RED tulip
Blooming wildly in the midst
Of all those perfect pastel beauties.
It has somehow survived the year
And returned to bloom again.
But it doesn’t fit into this year’s color scheme
So…off with it’s head.
It’s probably the only tulip
That’s been saved from cutting
By the tenor section!
We were practicing for our annual
“Palms to Passion” service this morning.
Doing a glorious version of
“God So Loved the World”
We were sounding pretty good
Except for one measure when those aforementioned tenors
Were moving from note to note ahead of us
The melody loving soprano section.
The tenors should know this by now.
Then I took a moment
And actually looked at the music.
They were singing it correctly
Our parts were not the same
Harmony in a church choir.
For some reason
This moment really spoke to me
Music is like a garden
Is like life.
Sometimes it’s the very things that sound off tune
That resolve into true beauty.
It’s the difference that make us richer
Sameness is comfortable
But it is in the bounty of difference
That we experience the true nature
Of all that God created.
