I’ve been shipping out calendars almost daily now, and it’s exciting to think about where they are all going. A church in Connecticut, a fundraising project in California, a prison ministry in Arkansas, a family owned store in Virginia, friends and family in Oklahoma and Canada . . . only to mention a few! May the Word of God be spread abroad!
The Early Bird Sale ends this weekend, so whether you’re buying 1 or 100 calendars, you can still save $1.00 per calendar for the rest of this week. And by the way, if you have any questions not explained on the 2014 Lenspiration Calendar page, don’t hesitate to shoot me an email at [email protected]. The Personalized option is still available!
Anyway, here’s an interesting fact about the calendar! A customer from Nebraska asked me this intriguing question in an email she sent to me:
“I have played piano and sung hymns all my life, and I absolutely love everything about your calendar. I can play all the hymns by memory. We’ll be sending your calendar to a friend in Australia soon. What is the background music score—Mozart? Beethoven?”
I didn’t know what to say! She was referring to the faded music notes I added to the parchment texture behind the main calendar grid. I had just thrown it in for an extra design touch. It was a random image from a random source!
I let her know I had no clue what it was and sent her a copy of the original image to let her investigate if she wanted. And she carried out the investigation! This was her reply:
“Ahhh–I found my old piano book! The music is Minuet from Sonata Op.49, No. 2 by Beethoven. The pages of my piano book are all yellowed, too. Thank you for attaching the music image for this curious person. ”
So, thanks to a curious person, I now know more about my calendar than I ever thought I would! Feel free to listen to the Minute here on YouTube when you take a break from humming the well-known hymns in the calendar: Beethovens Sonata in G Major, Op. 49 No. 2.
