Climbing Rainbows

"Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all the living creatures of every kind on the earth." -Genesis 9:16

The Orchestra of Life

Life is a grand performance,
Sounds blending
From souls here
     And there;
The harmony of hearts
Who sing as they’re tuned.

Each instrument provides a voice
Unique and all its own,
A special splash of color
That shimmers in its place.

The strengths and weaknesses
Of every soul,
And the talents of each performer
Lend music to the show;
Each echo of the heart
Contributes to the choir:
Each one is a piece that adds to the puzzle;
Each one is a cherished jewel to prize.

The goals of education
Must not demand duplication;
We must not make each instrument
Sound similar, or sound the same,
But help each instrument
Make music,
Singing as sweetly as possible
How he or she was made.

Amen on the education line! I enjoyed this immensely. My favorite lines:

The harmony of hearts
Who sing as they’re tuned.

Beautiful imagery of our lives as God works within us!
