Show and Tell Friday - My Piano

One of my prized possessions is my Kawai piano.

Although I'm not a master musician, nothing soothes my soul like sitting down and playing for a spell.

A favorite hymn of mine is "How Great Thou Art." The minute the music begins, my living room is transformed into a cathedral of worship, no worrying allowed.

  1. Hi, Gayle,

    Thanks for dropping by my blog. My piano is an Everett, but I certainly don't play well. It came to me when my mom decided it no longer fit in her home (she purchased it when I started piano lessons at age 5). I've never heard of the Kawai.

    How Great Thou Art was my grandfather's favorite hymn. It was sung at his funeral in 2004 and I still tear up every time I hear it.

    And...you shared your piano, I mentioned mine, and my grandfather's name was Everett. So how cool is that?!

    Blessings to you!

  2. Beautiful piano. And I love you song of choice. Awhile back I found a sign, chipped and markdown that reflects the same choice. Here is a picture of it:

  4. I always wanted to learn to play the piano, but I don't have a musical bone in my body. :-)
    Thanks for stopping by.
    Have a great weekend.

  5. I can't imagine a world without music, and I'm so grateful to have the ability to play.

  6. I've had my piano since I was in second grade. It is more than 100 years old and still sounds great, although it needs to be tuned. It has had only three owners that I know of...a church, my great-aunt, and me. Thanks for sharing.
