The Music

Isa 54:10 For the mountains may depart, and the hills be removed; but my lovingkindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall my covenant of peace be removed, saith Jehovah that hath mercy on thee.

There is the music of Eternity in the very sound of these words. It is the stride of these words that lends itself, and leads into the beautiful melody that lies below them; sweeping, as it will, through the whole of creation: parting all things into the transient, and the Eternal; the mortal and the immortal. Yet as powerful as are these words, and the thoughts that accompany them, the music, once heard, is greater still. Take away the thought, and the words, and the music still abides; for the things of God, the performance, the permanence, the flow, and the power abide from heart to heart through the melody of His changeless love. The music is the stamp of authenticity, as being spoken by 'Jehovah that hath mercy on thee.'

A Floret

In that barren land,
A Floret, grows among thorns;
Calling out softly,

Like a whispering,
That comes gently on the wind:
"I Am Life to you."
