When I was a very little girl, maybe 8 or 9, I saw a movie called Rigoletto. While watching it I became completely enchanted by the lyrics to one of the songs...I have yet to find the name of that song but I can remember every word…
Music boxes have within,
melodies they carry with them,
once they open music fills the air.
Every person you have known,
has a song of their own,
once they open up you'll hear what’s there.
It's not easy you must listen
with your heart for what lies hidden.
There was a melody, locked deep inside of me but now its free,
it found a place embraced by harmony, sweet harmony,
Love more than anything,
Teaches our hearts to sing,
Only love, could break the spell,
now I know, very well,
the love within myself.
This song touched my heart and encouraged me to look for what is unique and beautiful within each person. It’s lesson has shaped me as a wife and mother and has challenged me to make my home a place filled with love, a place that not only allows but encourages each person in my family to be fully who they were created to be, a “place embraced by harmony”.
"And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony."Colossians 3:14
