Moving Moment: The Touch of the Master’s Hand / The Violinist

An oldie, but goodie. If you know and love it, get out the tissues.

Now, if you loved that, you must read this poem; it moved me to tears! I only wish there was an “I am in awe!” button. I would put it in whole, if I thought I had the right, but I am going to try “Pressing” it, because this blogger has some other seriously awesome stuff.

    Lampman – quite a name for a inspiring writer, Wot? He is one of Canada’s four “Confederation poets” writing of wilderness, development, hopes of a fledgling entity.I have gone with my family in different seasons to the little church on the hill looking down on Lake Erie not too far from Morpeth. Close to his birthplace and now standing as a wide-open memorial to his art and a little rural community of faith. He was employed as a Postal Service official. His amorous relationships were unsteady. He died very young. The story of the European musician simply crossed his path and he could not let it go. Convicts us of the pressing need for compqssion on everyday streets. See another blog:

      Just checked it out. Very nice blog. Now if I can just figure out how to “follow” it…I don’t understand atom.

        Adopt the World has been set on the shelf. A lot of good multi-media there. I have found WordPress to be a much more satisfying vehicle than Blogger for current postings. There was a time when my wife and I were suffering the empty nest syndrome. A part-time job at a grocery store was affording me a look at many needs and life situations. It was as if the Holy Spirit said to me “adopt the world”. The gist of it all is given in the sidebar “Now Be It Resolved”. Doug

          I get it – my old Blogger blog is also on the shelf as just a signpost to here since I migrated everything over. I too agree about WP vs. Blogger. I just wish it were a bit easier to tweak my blog design, or that I could find a free one that suits my style/needs better. Otherwise, I recommend WP to anyone wanting to start a blog.

    I remember the song well and love it. Reminds me of a painting on my parents wall of an old gray haired man playing the violin. Reminds me of my Jesus. It definately tugs at the heart strings.

    Yes the poem is great; I can see the scene play out sooooo well in my mind.
