Welcome to Week 7 of “The Summer of “The Sound of Music””.
This week we look at our final song in the musical: “Edelweiss”. It is a love song to a flower, a love song to a country, a love song to resilience, beauty and the power of upliftment.
When we consider aspects of the song and the flower, we see that Edelweiss can represent us.
Like Edelweiss, we are individuals connected to something greater than we are.
Like Edelweiss, we are strong, we are resilient, and we long to bloom and grow.
Like Edelweiss, our nature is pure, clean, bright, innocent.
Like Edelweiss we are beautiful, and with our beautiful presence, we can uplift and bless the world.
When we sing the song, let us sing it as a love song to ourselves, every day, and live in the spirit of Edelweiss.
