As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet,
The voice of one crying in the wilderness
“Prepare the way of the Lord, Make his paths straight. Every valley shall be filled, And every mountain and hill shall be made low,And the crooked shall become straight, And the rough places shall become level ways, And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.”
Luke 3: 4-6
It is my deepest pleasure to be able to share this music clip of my Dad, Myron N. Plooster, singing "Every Valley Shall be Exalted" from the Messiah in 1988 at the height of his singing career. Take a few minutes, click on the "play" arrow on the media bar above (please pardon the brief ad that plays in front of the music) and listen to the sound of a his voice lifted in praise to God as you enjoy the images of the mountains and valleys of Colorado, which he loved. The photo at the top of this post was taken in the Canadian Rockies on a backpacking trip he took, probably within a year or two of the recording.
(being new to posting clips of music, I inadvertently got off schedule for the meditations, so this posted a couple of days early instead of on the 22nd as it was intended)
