Last week I was into about my third hour of the rounds as a music minister and as I began to play a tune, I found that I had not only forgotten some of the notes, but I was totally not making any musical sense of the tune--and was starting to jumble at least two together.
I gritted my teeth and tried to recover, but soon realized that it was hopeless and I didn't want to inflict any further musical pain on the staff and patients.
I took a deep breath, stopped and was rewarded by several listeners thanking me for "such beautiful music".
I was rather flabbergasted, but there and then decided to relax and let some music flow and I was so delighted to find music that was music flowing from the harp.
It's been very important for me to be sure and bring music that I hope and pray will offer healing and comfort on my rounds, and until now was not willing to step outside the musical harp box. So glad I did...and I will be doing so some more!
Blessings of music and peace to you all.

Then onto the herb garden where the bees were, by the dozens, swarming around the flowering herbs. The music and the hum was truly hypnotic. Tried to get a picture of several bees, but was only able to get one bee at a time. I so love September with all of it's wonderful scents, smells and promise of harvest.
May your harvest be fruitful and blessings be yours.
