The old violin sits on top of a chifforobe that belonged to my grandmother, who was born in the 1800’s.
The seasoned instrument, however, did not belong to her.
It belonged to my husband’s great grandfather, who was also born in the 19th Century.
He was the one who played it.
My husband is a musician and the violin was passed down to him.
I wonder if it was used to sing praise to God long ago, before we were born?
Throughout the ages, those who loved God sang about Him and played instruments.
When we make music in our hearts to Him, we can also share it with others and bring them to a personal place of worship.
We are also creating a legacy of praise to our children and our children’s children.
Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
