RESURRECTION

TREE BLOSSOMS“Look!  I am making all things new.”  (Rev. 21:5)

Hey, everybody!  Isn’t life beautiful!  It’s spring, and everything is coming back to life after a long winter’s nap.  It’s like everything is being resurrected.

This morning Eevie invited me to go walking with her and her niece Paula.  It took us a while to finish our walk because we kept stopping to take pictures of some of God’s awesome handiwork.  Also along the way, we came across some of the marvelous handiwork of an unknown sidewalk artist.

MUSIC IS MEDICINE

MUSIC. . . David took the harp and played it, and Saul found relief and felt better . . . (1 Samuel 16:23)

David was an accomplished musician on the 10-stringed harp and even designed instruments.  While King Saul was under stress, the soft, calm music that David played for him on his harp soothed him and gave him a feeling of peace.  Why was that?

Because music is a gift from God, it has the ability to bolster our health and well-being.  Some hospitals have even piped music into intensive care units.  It has also been noted that premature babies and surgery patients often respond well to pleasant music.  Studies show that listening to relaxing music produces significant reductions in stress hormone levels during surgery.  Tanner Health System’s Harmony for Healing music therapy program was developed to help caregivers, patients, and their loved ones to cope with the stressful times that often accompany a hospital stay.

Yes, music can have a powerful influence on our heart, mind, and body!  May we use this gift well.

Take care, and have a good night.pearl_color_001
