Hi everybody. Just feel like saying hello to you all...to tell you that I am OK and all is going well.
Almost school holidays here in Sydney and cannot wait to have a couple of stress free weeks.
Just wanted to share with you all this song..Its a remake and its called "Hallelujah" and no matter what religious denomination you belong to, you will find this very very touching. Hallelujah is a Hebrew word meaning "God be Praised" but I think most religions use it in their psalms or sermons, including my own , Greek Orthodox.
I dont know if I have told you before as it is something that I keep to my self, but I have a very very deep belief and faith in God. I always have had, but many years back when my 22 year old cousin passed away, my faith became stronger as I was looking for answers. It was the first death I ever had to deal with and I just didnt understand why such a loving God would take away someone so young and precious. Anyway, my faith and understanding of His word became deeper and stronger in the years that followed. For me, everything good in my life has been given to me by Him. I do not believe in chances...I believe in Him. Everything I have ever asked for, God has answered. Always. He has always been with me.
But to my shame, I have to admit I have lost my way in the last couple of years. Even though my faith is as strong as ever, I dont go to Church as much, I dont stick by my own person religious rules as much, I dont read as much scripture. Anyway...I have been listening to this song all day , everyday the last few days..It is almost psalm sounding and there is something so magical about it.
I miss going to church, I miss that inner calmness and serenity I get from the scent of the burning candles, the icons, the silence, the gospels. I need to go back to my roots . I need to rediscover all that is dear to me.
So if you have a few minutes, here is the link to listen to this beautiful song. The first minute is all music but then the words start soon after.
Thank you all for everything always. Thank you!
To all of you out there..Hallelujah my friends.
