In that stillness the other morning I heard a horse across the road begin to whinny. After a pause, I heard another across the valley respond back, the solo becoming a duet.
As I listened closer I could hear the crow of a rooster join in to form a trio.
Adding to what was definitely now a barnyard band, a few chickens and a duck.
Rounding out the voices were several bleating goats.
A wonderful morning symphony found in the stillness.
I smiled widely.
I found myself wanting to join their praise,
to add my voice to their song.
God gave us each a voice and those individual voices matter.
Just think of the many ways they can be used for good:
To compliment, to encourage, to honor, to praise,
To speak out, to speak for, to speak peace,
to speak life.
Your voice is special and unique,
yours alone to use.
Your one voice is good.
One voice can make a difference.
But when we join our voices together,
they grow stronger
The music we make with our combined voices
is a glorious thing.
So sing that solo,
form a duet,
even a trio,
join a band
perform with a symphony.
Let your voice be heard as only you can speak it.
Just never stop singing
the brilliant song
