Today's Why Wednesday post, believe it or not, is not a bad "Why?" It is not a "Why?" filled with contempt, disdain, and overall fury at the horrid state of affairs in our society today.

"What? Leah's being positive?" you may ask yourself. "Did I wake up in an alternate universe?"

I assure you my friend, you did not.

In addition to a positive "Why?" today's topic is also a "How?" of sorts.

But enough preamble. On to the post.

Every time I listen to a brilliant piece of music that speaks to my soul, I am left in awe.

Music's ability to give voice to those deep-rooted feelings in our soul, the ones we have no description for, is at once glorious and inexplicable.

Brilliant music has the ability to open old, closed over wounds of the heart and at the same time, heal them, sometimes without even using words.

I am always left baffled, amazed, and thankful by wonderful music. It is truly a sign that God loves us.

I'll leave you with one of my favorite pieces, Cantique de Jean Racine, composed by Gabriel Faure, and performed by the Cambridge Singers.


  1. Very nice. Thank you.

  2. That is such a beautiful piece! Got to sing it a LOT this past spring and each time it hits touching. And I completely has such emotional power. Amazing. Glad to hear such a positive post!!! :) Love you!
