life as it is seen from my heart and soul

she does it again.

here i sit.. with the rain filling my yard and soon to snow… listening to the familiar words and the tunes… but the voice of Sara Groves… for me… it is liquid grace and courage, the voice that reminds me of Jesus… no matter what is going on or in my head at that moment. She has been with me in darkness and light… in the garden at 2am when i cried out to the Lord about my existence and there she was singing about the moon reflecting the Son. You know how there is that one singer at certain times of your life that get you through everything????  when I was a teenager it was Carly Simon… getting me through my parents divorce and crazy boys and suicidal friends. but for a very long time now it has been Sara Groves. singing about her life, her marriage, her children, her Faith in Christ… if you haven’t found her… go now, she is on iTunes… and get Abide With Me… or better yet… get Conversations, and then get All Right Here and then get Less Like Scars and then get Fireflies and Songs and then get O Holy Night and then get Add to The Beauty .. because they are all my favorite… every one of them. Last year I drove home from The Abbey of the Genesee and listened to all of them… thank you Sara Groves… for being vulnerable and honest and bold.
