Day 15 : Making Music

In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.  

These have come so that your faith--of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire--may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
1 Peter 1:7

That moment
 When you think
 Things are settling down
 And life will return to normal,
But instead it gets
Amped up

 While it was pretty as well. My observation was that the Chopin pieces were much prettier and more interesting. The C Major pieces seemed repetitive and I didn’t want to finish listening to the whole piece.

If you apply this to life.... 

You can plod along in the key of C  and do well, 
but what a beautiful life if you live life with the flats and sharps!
