Selah Worship: Writing for 31 Days

http://write31days.com/One of my favorite authors is Madeleine L’Engle. I enjoyed sharing “A Wrinkle in Time” and her other fantasies with my children, but I especially love her non-fiction. Recently, while reading in “A Circle of Quiet” (Book One of The Crosswick Journals), I found mention of the Italian composer Palestrina. Naturally, I was curious, so I found performances of his Masses on YouTube. Most are very lengthy, but I’ve left one for you at the end of this post sung by The Choir of Kings College at Cambridge. It’s followed up with something in an entirely different vein that I found a couple of years ago that I absolutely love. I think you will, too. It is my prayer that you will find yourself in a worshipful attitude while listening to both.

Before I leave, I want to offer a copy of L’Engle’s “A Circle of Quiet” to the first person making a request in the comments. I have two copies and I’m paying it forward with the one in the best condition. Madeleine is a woman with words to be shared, like this from her book “Walking on Water”:

“We are to be children of the light, and we are meant to walk in the light, and we have been groping along in the darkness. The creative act helps us to emerge into the light….”

Exercise your creative muscles and “emerge into the light.”

Welcome! I'm so glad our paths have crossed. I am a traveler, just like you. Blessed with four sons in various stages of adulthood, my life is full with following their adventures and working alongside my husband on our small family farm in a beautiful Indiana valley. A writer at heart, this blog is in step with my determination to pause and relish the moments, people and events that challenge, motivate and inspire. Join me on the journey.
