Broken


Woke up this morning and couldn't go back to sleep; one of of the things that I do to help me when this happens is to listen to music.  Quite often it is New Age or Classical because they tend to be smooth with no vocals. For this reason I also occasionally listen to smooth jazz.  Lately however I have started to listen to hymns with the words and I find that this helps carry the calmness throughout my day as the words come back into my mind.  I have the hymns from our hymnbook on CD and put it on my 5 CD player and hit repeat all and listen all night.  A couple of weeks ago I discovered an Internet radio station http://www.yldsr.com/  that plays hymns, contemporary inspirational music and now Christmas music and you can choose which type you would prefer to listen to.  Right now 'Amazing Grace' is playing but when I first got up and started to listen one of my favorite contemporary songs was on and it kept going through my mind even with other songs playing so I decided to share it with you and I was surprised and delighted to find a video version on you-tube.  I hope you will listen and it will touch your spirit as it touches mine.

I love hymns too which is surprising since I have not been a Christian for 30 years. But the old hymns were part of my childhood and remain cherished music for me. And I love Christmas carols! I could listen to them all year long.

I bet it's an uplifting tune- but I'll have to wait to watch until the next time I'm at BBM's house. My old computer doesn't like videos.
Thanks for visiting ESR!

A beautiful song and yes it touched my heart too. And I know out of broken things God makes things good again and sometimes even better. :-)
