My daughter is studying classical music. She’s a budding gifted soprano following her bliss. Her bliss has opened many doors and windows to my own bliss. This spring she had to learn an oratorio by Handel called “How Beautiful are the Feet” for one of her many auditions. The piece was produced for “Messiah” and was to celebrate the peacemakers.
The words – like in most important messages are very simple:
How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and
bring glad tidings of good things. (Isaiah 52:7)
This message is as potent for us today in our time as it was in the time it was written. It teaches us the value of the spoken word and to be mindful that those words further the attitudes of peace and positive intentions.
Walk today with beautiful feet and if you get a chance find Handel’s music and listen to it, just for a little musical reminder.
Have a blessedly peaceful day!
