The Unexpected Blessing…

StormieSteele

Life has a way beckoning our attention. It is often through the unexpected that we gain the resurrection of strength, courage & a profound ability to become more than we could have possibly imagined.

Through the challenge – life & purpose becomes evident. There’s always more than meets the eye taking its timely place.

Are you permitting the unexpected to bless you?

SistaStrings ~”Strange Fruit”, A Musical Collaboration

SistaStrings instrumental piece of “Strange Fruit” , continues in the heart-tugging delivery of a song that sheds light on the senseless brutality of humanity on humanity.

“Strange Fruit”
Southern trees bear a strange fruit
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root
Black bodies swingin’ in the Southern breeze
Strange fruit hangin’ from the poplar trees

Pastoral scene of the gallant South
The bulgin’ eyes and the twisted mouth
Scent of magnolias sweet and fresh
Then the sudden smell of burnin’ flesh

Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck
For the sun to rot, for the tree to drop
Here is a strange and bitter crop

While I can bring much emphasis to the song itself – I would rather focus on SistaStrings. SistaStrings ~Monique & Chauntee Ross~ present a special blend of refined elegance to practically anything they collaborate on. You can feel their music. I’d like to think that their contemporaries – Karen Briggs and Yo Yo Ma would be proud.

Bred in classical training, the sisters are rising stars! Having graced Carnegie Hall, The Milwaukee Symphony, Fred Hammond, Virtue, Michael Buble, and more – SistaStrings are a unique addition to the music scene.

I envision SistaStrings starring on stage with Debra Cox, Andrea Bocelii, Sting, Stevie Wonder, Barbara Streisand, Chris Botti , David Foster, Burt Bacharach…need I say more!

SistaStrings…Oh yeah!!!

I Am Healed

Walking through familiar paths…changed! The impact of distortion has lost its power – I am healed!

The darkness no longer rules…light envelops my soul.

The familiar path is but a reminder – that which was…is no more, a cloud fading with time. I am healed.

Thank you for visiting Life Through The Storm. Wishing you balance and well-being. ~Storm
