2. Vocal or instrumental sounds possessing a degree of melody, harmony, or rhythm.
Music...just the word alone makes me smile and relax. I LOVE music. Music brings so much joy to my day. A favorite song, lyrics that speak to me, a beat that gets me movin', a rhythm that makes me sway, drums that make me wanna march with the band like when I was a majorette in HS, music....oh sweet sweet music. But music doesn't just come in a song. Music comes to me in many other ways. The sound of a child laughing in play, or a waterfall gently rushing down the rocks. The sound of the wind blowing thru the trees, the music the birds sing to me on an early spring morning. The gentleness I hear late at night while I sit outside and look up at the evening stars and moon. Yes, even silence brings music to my ears, joy to my heart, and peace to my being. Music is given to us in so many ways. Even just the sound of listening to a loved one breath is music to my ears. I pray that each and every one of you hears the music that brings only peace and calmness to your day and evening today.
