I pray because I can't help myself.
I pray because I'm helpless. 
I pray because the need flows out of me all the time, waking and sleeping.
It doesn't change God, 
it changes me.
CS Lewis

Not much is needed for a beautiful life. It was always given to us to love, value, admire and appreciate. We just have to open our heart to it.

Landfill Harmonic Orchestra

"We believe we are conveying a dream when we play with recycled instruments. Playing melodies made out of trash that move people's hearts and turn the key that unlocks the deepest feelings in children and young kids that begin to re-evaluate their own lives. In which they have it all."

One of my instructors shared this video with us this morning. I'm not sure if words could ever truly describe how much this video has touched my heart, but I urge you to watch it (to the few readers I may still have). The human need to see, feel and hear beauty is encompassed. Moreover, the idea that anything or anyone should not be thrown away so easily.
