It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and let some music take you away.
I watched the movie “August Rush” on Netflix recently and it moved me to tears. This movie is about a little boy who lives in an orphanage and he runs away to look for his parents. His parents are musicians and he is a music prodigy. Aside of the fact that the plot of the movie is incredibly heartwarming, the music they play throughout is beautiful! I found myself crying and filled with goosebumps at times. Music has a way of doing that doesn’t it?
We all have certain songs that really move us. One of mine is called “I See The Lord.” I can not listen to that song without getting both tears and goosebumps.
Music is powerful I believe because it makes us “think.” We get lost in it and our minds go to places deep within our souls. When I hear “I See The Lord” I literally picture Jesus and his robe touching the earth. I am not absolutely sure why this song has always moved me in such a way. I think it may because, as I was once told, I talk in a way where I expect a Utopia world. There is so much wrong in the world and picturing just even a little touch of Jesus’s robe brings me to Utopia! Music takes us away!
Music is relaxing and comforting. In fact, I play music for Cino all of the time. Especially when I leave or when we are in the car on the way to the vet. I have a couple of CD’s but the one I play the most is pictured below.
I also sing to Cino at times. When I do she wags her tail and closes her eyes.
So why not put on some music today and let it relax, comfort and take you (and your pet) away!
*I have a YouTube video below for those interested in listening to the song “I See The Lord.” I have to add to take notice that animals are used in the video. ALL living beings belong to God and he cares about all of us.
