The Music Man

Good morning!

Who doesn’t enjoy a good toe tapping musical?!  🙂

I attended TPS Memorial High School’s presentation of The Music Man this past weekend. Great job Chargers! ☆
And kudos to the young lady in the pink wheelchair!  ♡

If you aren’t familiar with the musical, it goes something like this.

Harold Hill, a smooth talking traveling salesman, was well on his way to selling the fine upstanding citizens of River City a bill of goods, a boy’s band, and he couldn’t even play a note. But Harold’s scam goes awry and takes a turn for the better when he falls for the town’s librarian.

Love. ♡
It has a funny way of making the bad good and the wrongs right. It puts a song in your heart and a spring in your step. It can soften the toughest of hearts. It can literally be life changing!

Marian, the librarian, knows the truth about Harold, yet she sees the best in him. She sees his potential and overlooks his faults. That’s exactly how 1 Corinthians 13 describes love. She focuses on his uplifting spirit, how he attained the townspeople’s belief in something greater than themselves; he righted a young romance for the mayor’s daughter, he instigated a barber shop quartet and a women’s dance company, and he ultimately gave them what he promised, a boy’s band.

See what encouraging and building up one another can do?

Let’s all love like 1 Corinthians 13 tells us to do. Let’s all edify others rather than tear them apart.  Let’s see the potential in those harder to love. Who knows, we might just be forming a boy’s band for heaven here on earth!

Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing.
1 Thesolonian 5:11

4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never ends. 
1 Corinthians 13 : 4-8

Love and laughter,

Sandy
