“Love’s the greatest beauty” Joni Mitchell, from 1 Corinthians 13

Today the prompt at Daily Post is to take a line from a favorite song and turn it into the title of a post.  http://www.dailypost.wordpress.com

LOVE’S THE GREATEST BEAUTY

Joni Mitchell
From her song,
LOVE
Album:
Wild Things Run Fast

Joni Mitchell’s version of 1 Corinthians 13 (1982, Crazy Crow Music) is exquisite.  She also wrote about Job in the Old Testament on another album.

We aspire to this kind of love our whole lives, and like Job, we are baffled and tested at times.  As we know, art is about the universals, the “human condition.”

Joni Mitchell’s voice is lower now, full of life wisdom.  I wrote many lessons listening to her quiet songs when I was a young teacher.  If you haven’t seen Joni’s paintings, you’d enjoy visiting her site.  Her poetry is there also.  http://www.jonimitchell.com

“Fractions in me
Of faith and hope and love
And of these three
Love’s the greatest beauty.”

Joni’s version of 1 Corinthians 13: 13
