Baha’i Faith: Day 12

“The art of music is divine and effective. It is the food of the soul and spirit. Through the power and charm of music the spirit of man is uplifted.”

“It has wonderful sway and effect in the hearts of children, for their hearts are pure, and melodies have great influence in them. The latent talents with which the hearts of these children are endowed will find expression through the medium of music.”

“Therefore, you must exert yourselves to make them proficient; teach them to sing with excellence and effect. It is incumbent upon each child to know something of music, for without knowledge of this art the melodies of instrument and voice cannot be rightly enjoyed. Likewise, it is necessary that the schools teach it in order that the souls and hearts of the pupils may become vivified and exhilarated and their lives be brightened with enjoyment.”

    That is just lovely. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it lately, but I love watching Rowenna grow up through your blogs and pictures. She was such a lovely baby, and she is becoming such a lovely and fun little girl and I just can’t wait to see the lovely and extremely talented young lady she will become.

    It is so cool that she is a budding musician already! I just can’t wait to meet her in person.
