There are things that tend to sweep me away. [I add here that there are too many verses in Scripture to enumerate here that sweep me away]. Sometimes it is an extraordinary piece of music. Examples of that include ‘Music of the Night’ from Phantom of the Opera and Appalachian Spring by Aaron Copland. There are many other pieces of music that do that as well. Sometimes it is a passage from various books that I have read and treasure; or scenes from various scenes from movies. It could be a magnificent sunset or stretch of beach. Often it is a magnificent speech that sweeps me away.
But today—it was a blog post written by a blogger that moves me. It is a review of the movie War Horse. But it is SO, SO much more. She has such a breathtaking way with words. So, rather than quote her and take her words out of context, I urge you to go to her link. I swear you will not be sorry. here is the link. No, don’t resist!! http://gwensworld.net/2012/01/16/war-horse-in-praise-of-schmaltz/
