Music is what feelings sound like. ~Author Unknown

Music has always "spoken" strongly to me. Sometimes I get as much out of the choir singing, in church, as I do from the sermon.
Today the music rose up and smacked me right in the heart. Oh, it wasn't a great song of the ages or a beautiful hymn, but for me, it was just as powerful. It was "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" and in my mind and heart I could just picture and hear my brother belting it out. It was always one of his favorites. Tears ran like rivers down my cheeks. It was like I had no control over myself. It was that powerful.
Memories can sneak up and grab you when you least expect it. Boy, was I not expecting that today.
