more than just black and white keys. . .

Pressing a black or white note on the piano keyboard causes a 'hammer' to hit a bunch of steel strings. The hammers rebound causing the steel string to resonate. (google image)

It has been a long time since i played such beautiful melody on my piano. It wasn’t perfect,no . . . in fact it was far from perfect but this melody gives a peaceful and serene feeling as it resonates through the walls of my house on a beautiful monday afternoon.

The song i play, has a combination of both major and minor chords. The melody played symbolize the life we are living. The major chords represent the good times one may have; fun, upbeat and of love and hope and the occasional  minor chords; brokenness and disappointments, pain and hurt. These minor chords are necessary to compliment the entire succession of musical tones.

We each live in a song, consist of both these major and minor chords. You cannot distinguish either one of them without the presence of the other. String a series of notes together, and you’ll come up with your very own personalized song =) ( And of course, you can add in the extra notes, thrills and slides to make your song more interesting or even more complex =P)

Every note i hit, God reminds me of His power and grace. It speaks of His promises and His greatness. It gives me a whole new perspective of His beauty, a glimpse of His majesty and a taste of His generosity.

How can i ever let go of this love so great?

“Wait, child. Wait and you shall see”

1 Peter 1: 7

“These trials are only to test your faith, to show that it is strong and pure. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies the gold-and your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold. So if your faith remains strong after being tried by fiery trials,it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.”

He, the author and perfecter of our faith.
