Thankful Thursday - Live Music

We attended a live performance of the Central Florida Winds this past weekend.  I love to sit up close so I can see the musicians play and interact with the conductor and each other.  During the intermission, these instruments were standing alone and looked so beautiful I just had to take their picture.  I'm so thankful for music, and for the musicians who practice, practice, practice to make it perfect.  I know this because I studied piano for five years.

The conductor was delightful and his joy was contagious.  I enjoyed watching him lead them seamlessly through the works of composers Mahler, Wagner, Hindemith, Toch and Grainger.

Being up front, you get to see all of the action.  I love the oboes, bassoons and trombones. Such glorious tones.

This concert was in a church and the stained glass windows were amazingly beauty-FULL.  I took these photos with my phone, so they don't show the  gorgeous colors.

This one of the Ten Commandments just took my breath away.  I'll have to go back and take better pictures.

This mosaic was on a brochure at the church.  It touched me and reminded me of the broken pieces of my life - and how ADONAI has reformed them into something beauty-FULL.  For that, I am so grate-FULL.

What are you thank-FULL for this week?

Thankful Thursday is my day of the week to focus on and be thankful for the good things in my life.
