This has been a hard week, with a lot of tragedy in the news. I don’t know about you, but my soul has felt pretty battered. Perhaps that’s what made hearing a beautiful hymn played by a gifted artist on a magical flute all the more sweeter today. My soul was touched. My hope was renewed. And, my faith and confidence in the world was restored.
No matter how hard life gets, Our Father in Heaven knows and loves us. He gave us a beautiful world which testifies to us each day that He lives and we are in His hands. Creating this video has offered solace to me, and I hope that it will do likewise for you.
