A Different Kind of Beautiful Music

A Different Kind of Beautiful Music

Fragile Musical Treasure

Less than four minutes. That’s all you have to give up in order to watch something that could change your life. At least, your day. Watch this beautiful video that teaches us about a whole different kind of music. How to find it. How to build it. How to grow goodness!

Thanks, Misty, for sharing this video. I somehow think it makes each of us a little bit better – a little more aware of our blessings and of all the opportunity around us – if we have eyes to see, ears to hear, and hearts to urge us forward to do something good!

This gives a whole new meaning to the phrase:

Love is in the air!

Magic of Music is Transforming

Transformation is an interesting word. We can transform trash into treasure. We can transform lives by offering a simple gift that may unlock the door to a different, better, more beautiful journey. In my experience, music can be transforming. This kind of music- created from the goodness of hearts of those who seem to have ‘nothing’ but – in what matters most- have it in spades.

Spencer W. Kimball said:

We are in a position, as musicians, to touch the souls of those who listen.

The good people – young and old – in this video are proving that the entire process of putting together instruments, finding the right owner of this gift, and then enjoying the strains that come from a grateful heart and the talents developed is heavenly.

Such little, tiny things can bring about miracles. In every condition, in sickness or poverty. In crisis and in the lap of luxury, there is something good we can find….Something good we can do…. Something good we can build.  We can become participants in amazing experiences. And bring about life-changing opportunities. The way these good folks – the ones in the video – have done it? Well, how cool is that? How ingenious. Bless them.

From Trash to Musical Treasures

However we can contribute, it’s good.

And goodness matters.

  1. Dear Vickey,

    Thank you for sharing such a beautiful story. Something about music profoundly touches my heart. It amazes me how seemingly worthless garbage can be transformed into a thing of beauty. The music was always there, it just took the vision of inspired individuals to see it. Makes me think of the worth of souls. Some us may feel worthless, but with the touch of the Savior, then He too can help us find our sweet melody.

    • It’s like the Touch of the Master’s Hand, isn’t it Stan?! Music is such a part of me… I’ve written and shared for so many years – with the intent of sharing something of worth that may get into the crevice here or hidden nook there – in the soul- and make a difference for good. The goodness these sweet people are making in so many ways…. it is inspiring and riveting. Yes – there is a melody in every one of us. I’m so grateful for the Master who teaches us.
      Thanks, Stan.

  2. Vickey: Just received your connection to LinkedIn, which I never look at, and I have really enjoyed getting introduced to it. Thank You for the Connection Invite. I heard you talk many years ago at Know Your Religion in Utah. I had one of my girls there with me and you totally touched our hearts. It is fun to see your website here, and learn a little of what you are involved in. Loved the Video about the instruments made from trash. So inspiring. I love music, but my best skill is enjoying it and being grateful to others who have the talents that they share. I am working with a company founded there in Utah, Send Out Cards. It is a phenomenal experience. Showing appreciation and gratitude and Enhancing Personal Relationships. Showing others you care with a heart felt card send to their mailbox. It really comes under the heading of Grow the Goodness and Share Your Thoughts. I would like to stay in touch with you and learn of the things you are doing.

I've noticed that when I'm looking for good things, they are more easily spotted. Even among crummy or mean things, there are little gems of good & kindness. If you've seen something 'good' or helpful this week, will you please post about it? If not here, on your own page. it's a simple way to make FB a happier media spot/ & might be exactly what someone needs to read as a lift for their heart. <3 ... See MoreSee Less
