Broken Box of Music

July 25

fell on a Tuesday this year.

It was the day

my

more-than-a-daughter

daughter

went to heaven.

I was in the living room

with a new friend.

We were keeping busy,

keeping me busy,

with busy things,

and

when we paused

from our prattle,

the room was still

for a moment.

The baby was asleep,

the rest of the household was peaceful.

From the far left corner of the room

my friend and I heard music.

I recognized the song....

not a particularly important song to me....

but

the song was

"Lara's Theme"

from Dr. Zivago.

The notes lifted from

a broken music box,

more than vintage,

almost antique by now.

Only the bottom,

the silver bottom

that contained the music box remained.

Sitting on three feet

on a corner of my desk

in the far left corner of the room

in the still of one moment

on the day she died

music lifted

without aid

into the air

and touched our ears.

We looked at each other.

We paused

together.

I said to my friend,

"That music came from a broken music box."

"Strange", she said,

and I think she became very nervous.

I thought to myself.....

Is it possible...

is it possible....



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
