The Music Of Joy











“Life is like playing a violin solo in public and learning the instrument as one goes along.” ~Samuel Butler

Last night, I had the joy and pleasure of watching sweet Ella play her first violin recital. Mind you, she is only seven! She carried herself and played like a professional adult. I couldn't have been prouder! Be still my heart.

“As fiddles and mandolins strike up the tunes, we’ll sing, oh we’ll sing, sing, for the rest of our lives in the Sanctuary of God.”
Isaiah 38

Ella looks so grown up already... getting bigger now.. yes, she certainly looks very serious when she is playing the violin.. Well done!

That must have been a wonderful recital. Impressive that she's playing that at 7 years old. I don't think I could learn how to play one of those

Ella does look very composed and serious!! What a special treat for you to be in the audience for her first recital. I remember how special those days were for our boys. And, each year, they all got better and better.

Best,
Bonnie

Look at that pretty little smile! She looks so happy and relaxed at her recital for 7 years old! I would have loved to have been sitting beside you listening, too.

One of my favorite violinists is Andre Rieu. Have you heard his music? He travels all over the world with his orchestra.

Have a wonderful weekend!
