making melody

When hard things happen and I am tempted to lose heart, it helps to remember this question (which I can ask myself morning, noon, or night): what kind of music do I want to make today? 

“If the moments of your day-to-day life were recorded as musical notes, what kind of music would they make?” Eugene Peterson  

“[M]aking melody with your heart. . . .” Ephesians 5:19
