Yesterday, while I was on Facebook in my usual love/hate Facebook angst, a friend shared a video which reminded me of a song I had forgotten about, that was released this year.
I’ve never really been a fan of Guy Sebastian’s music, and his career started when I lived in the USA, so he wasn’t on my radar at all. I wasn’t really listening to his genre of music either. (I’m mellowing in my aging!) He spent his teen years in the city I grew up in, and went to a church I know of, and was musically involved there.
I decided to look up the video.
It was written for a close friend of his, who toured with him and was very talented, but who also suffered from depression apparently, and very sadly, took his own life. This song is a tribute to him, and also about the joy of their reunion in heaven.
To say that it moved me even more when I realised their sons were in the video, is a bit of an understatement.
This song is filled with biblical imagery I love, but of course, the message of taking time for our loved ones, or anyone in our path who needs connection, including ourselves, is relevant to all of us.
I personally love it. It dropped down when I needed it too, and I thought I would share it for anyone who hasn’t heard/seen it already. Even if it isn’t your cup of tea, for all my friends and acquaintances who are struggling with these things, I hope you can feel my hand out to you ❤
