Winning Treasury #174

Some words from EmeraldTownRaven...

First off, I'd like to thank Lori for choosing my treasury as last weeks winner! Having my guitar print featured in so many treasuries has been such a joy and an honor!! I love the creativity of this team and being able to see the different ways its expressed is such a delight!! I feel that music is basically a language form. There are many different types and many different ways of communicating through music. This team has captured the essense of music beautifully by just using visuals! Choosing a winner is never easy.. by any sense of the word. And I mean it when I say that each of your treasuries was a winner in their own special way! I did manage to narrow my choices down to one treasury, and that one treasury is "Tension is to be loved..." by SarahsNickNacks.

There was something about this treasury that I just couldn't pass up. And the more I looked it over, the deeper I fell into it. I felt it represented something that is very important in all of our lives. We all have "tensions" in our lives and sometimes they are quite painful. And while we usually cannot see it at the time we are experiencing that pain, that very pain that we felt would break us helped to mold us into something more beautiful than what we were before. And it stresses the importance of perspective. I feel that is a valuable lesson to be learned and believe she captured that rather beautifully with her title and her treasury and even the song she linked that was to accompany her treasury. So congratulations Sarah!! And thank you all ever so much for your participation this week!! It was a wonderful ride!!
