It’s a new year! Welcome to it … and if you’re a new reader, welcome to my blog! As you might notice, the posts on this site were abruptly discontinued in April of 2014. That’s when wiseblooding officially moved.
My mostly-daily content has transitioned to a self-hosted site: http://wiseblooding.com/ and I hope you’ll click over to where the posts continue! I look forward to sharing this new year with you. God bless!
What more can I or do I need to say?
Because I know how the scenario ends, I find it difficult to focus on the events of Holy Week with a somber face and attitude.
In the same vein, I could only view the film The Passion of the Christ a single time. That one viewing brought into full view the significance of Bible passages like Isaiah 53:5 “… he was pierced through for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities … by his scourging we are healed.” Viewing the film once was all that was necessary for my personal clarity.
As I was contemplating today’s post, I viewed a video that gave a moving reminder of how great our God is. With the marvelous setting and stunningly beautiful music, it was (for me) four minutes of worship.
I have posted on this blog more than a few posts relating my love and ecstatic enjoyment of music. For today’s nod to National Poetry Month, the poem below obliquely references two friends of Jesus (Mary and Martha) and speaks to my personal Mary (eager to be at the feet of Jesus) and Martha (distracted by the cares of the world) tendencies. Music reminds me about the One who matters most.
