The Thin Veil – Solo Piano Instrumental by Fred McKinnon
Today’s piano interlude is called “The Thin Veil”. As I was playing and recording this morning, I was thinking and praying for a dear friend in our community. He’s been in the long, weary stages of battling a disease. Without a miracle, he will be taken from us soon. He’s told me before how much he enjoys listening to these interludes so I am dedicating this to him.
I personally believe that there is a thin veil between us and eternity. We grow up thinking of heaven as some destination in the sky. I wonder if the people on the space station are closer to heaven and God than we are here on Earth. Yet, I’m convinced that it doesn’t work that way at all. I’ve been in the hospital or hospice rooms too many times and witnessed those final, passing moments where it’s obvious that the veil between this life and the next is so very thin. It’s right there, and we are so close to just stepping through that veil into glory.
As my friend Steve faces the veil, I pray for him. I still pray for miraculous healing. I pray for peace, comfort, and a release from pain. I pray for his beautiful wife and children. I grieve that we are in this fallen world filled with disease and pain but I celebrate that this is not our home.
I hope that you enjoy this episode.
