James 3:3 - 12
"When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. Likewise the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark.
The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and creatures of the sea are being tamed and have been tamed by man, but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.
With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God's likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be. Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water."
'Now all has been heard;
here is the conclusion of the matter:
Fear God and keep his commandments,
for this is the whole duty of man.' - Eccl. 12:13
oh no mr choo cant find the english suite orignal score.. haha. but HOPEFULLY the trinity music centre people wont be too strict and like disqualify me or what cos it wud be real sad that they are so inflexible.
acsgo will have not one, but hopefully 2 new pieces to play when i get back to sch. i've finished printing rachmaninoff's prelude in g minor transcription (which took me at least 10h in total to do). in my opinion, its challenging enough to be an syf piece haha. the other is a compo made up of purely natural harmonics. simple, but writing it down is a chore. haha the notes are done but the fingerings are only half done.
365th post today!! haha
