Beauty that Fills the Soul: #LMMLinkup

Welcome back to Literacy Musing Mondays! A few years ago I was in a writing group where we were asked to write a poem based on the prompt soul filling beauty. Here’s what I wrote with a few minor changes:

Soul Filling Beauty

We had a wonderful time last night at a Michael Card concert. We were able to converse with him before the concert and also got to meet Scott Roley, who sang a couple of numbers with him. The fellowship and the concert were great examples for me of soul filling beauty.

The rest of the week we are attending a seminar led by Michael about Recovering the Lost Language of Lament. It is an intense study, and I think it will help me in developing a deeper and more meaningful prayer life.

What about you? What are your plans for the rest of the week? I hope you will join us here by sharing your posts about what inspires you in reading, writing, blogging, or even your written Bible devotions.

I wholeheartedly concur with her list. She features a classic along with one that I am going to add to my Amazon wishlist. Be sure to check it out.

My Favorite Post of the Week:

The Look and Tell Bible by Dawn Machell

If you are looking for an easy way to introduce young children to the Bible, Shelly has found a book that her children love. Where Bible time used to always be a struggle, it has now become a happy time for her children. You will want to read her post to see what has made the difference.

  1. Hi Gayl!
    Gosh, I have not heard Michael Card’s name for awhile, but I have always been blessed by his music and teaching. That sounds like a great conference and I hope you will share more about it later. This week makes week 3 of serving our daughter and her family following a serious back surgery for our youngest granddaughter, 13, about 2 weeks ago. She and we live 350 miles away and I expect to be here for about another 10 days. Blessed to be helping them, but I confess to missing our home and routine.

    1. Hi Pam!
      Thanks for stopping by! Yes, we’ve followed Mike Card a long time. We went to a concert a few months ago and my 25 yr old son with MD, who doesn’t get out much, said it was like a breath of fresh air. He is here with us this week, too, and I know that it will encourage him a lot.

      Wow, it sounds like your having quite a busy time. I hope your granddaughter recovers quickly without problems. It’s good that you are able to help. I do understand, though, about missing your own home and normal routine.

      May God grant you a good week and give you unexpected blessings!

  2. Michael Card has been such a blessing to me over the years. And I love his songs about lament and the silence of God. That workshop must have been amazing!

    1. Yes, we’ve followed him a long time and have been very blessed. The workshop is amazing and it’s still going on. It will last through Friday afternoon. We are definitely learning a lot. It may take me some time to process it all, but maybe I’ll be able to share some eventually.

      Thanks for visiting, Michele! Many blessings to you!

  3. HI Gayl, thank you so much for visiting my Testimony Tuesday post about reaching out to a pregnant girl at church and for leaving me a kind comment. It’s nice to meet you!

    I love Michael Card! His music is so soothing to the soul. His rendition of “Joseph’s Song” is one of my all-time favorite Christmas songs.

    1. Patti, it’s nice to meet you, too! 🙂 Your post was great.

      Yes, we’ve loved Michael Card for a long time…. His music is great, but he’s also an awesome Bible teacher!

      Thanks for visiting and many blessings to you!
