God Loved Us And Gave Us ♫ Sarah Brightman ♫ And Many Other
Blessings Too.

Gave us Sarah Brightman

. . . to brighten our lives with songs like the beautiful "Canto Della Terra"
duet with Andrea Bocelli, and the lovely captivating "Sarai Qui" sung with
Alessandro Safini.

Sarah Brightman, her voice and her music, makes us happy.

. . . as does the delightful personality and voice of the beautiful Russian
operatic soprano Anna Netrebko. To see and hear Anna sing "Dammi tu
forza, O Cielo" from Giuseppe Verdi's La Traviata, deeply moves our soul.

Its also powerfully sung by the graceful and talented American soprano Renee
Fleming and the lovely Romanian soprano Angela Gheorghiu {ger gue}. All
three renditions will deeply stir the human soul. "Dammi tu forza, O Cielo" is
powerful music.

We thank You Father, for the gift of soul-stirring music.

God, who loves Sarah and Anna, also loves music. We humans received
our love of music from Him who is the Original Musician ~ the creative
Creator of music-making birds and the creative designer of their bird songs.

And not just those ear-pleasing happy sounds . . .

God also created rain and designed it to make its own music. Rain sounds.
Some of us hear musical notes from pouring down sheets of rain when we're
safe inside our homes ~ you probably do too.

And when the wind blows through the tree tops . . .

. . . and we hear musical notes in the sounds of the ocean's waves crashing
against the shore line.

And in the distant rumblings of thunderstorms . . .

. . . and in the roar of great falls, like Niagara . . .

. . . and in the sounds of rustling leaves in Autumn ~ the falling leaves of Fall.

Thank You Father, Lord Jesus, Holy Spirit for the music-sounds of Sarah, Anna,
song birds, rain, wind, the ocean's waves, thunderstorms, and the rustling leaves
of Fall. All these gifts make living life lovely.

And what would we have done, Lord, without Luciano Pavarotti? What a voice!
What a magnanimous personality! We miss Luciano, but we'll see him again in
Heaven. Thank You Father for the gift of Luciano Pavarotti, for his life and his
music . . . .

. . . and thank You Father for the magnificent gift of Andrea Bocelli, who now not
seeing, has helped untold millions see and feel and come to love Your gift of
music to the world through his soul-stirring "il Mare Calmo Della Sera" and
"Romanza" and "Melodramma", to name only three of many.

And thank You Father, Lord Jesus, Holy Spirit for life itself. Our days in this world
are like "a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes" {James 4:14} ~ so
help us to enjoy our fleeting earthly days and to live our lives to the full . . .

Vivamus, moriendum est {Let us live, since we must die}

Yet we do not die.

We do not die because the Lord Jesus has defeated Death for us on The Cross and
with that Empty Tomb on Resurrection Sunday. And now whoever believes in Jesus
will not die, but have Eternal Life.

The Lord Jesus said to Martha, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes
in Me will live, even though they die, and whoever lives by believing in Me will never die."

Thank You Father, Lord Jesus, Holy Spirit for The Cross and for Salvation and Eternal Life,
the greatest gifts of all.
