In Terry’s recent post he quotes some lyrics from Sufjan Stevens’ song, “Chicago” which really resonated with him as he was driving down a countryside highway in a landscape of wintering pastures.
Sufjan’s song, “Sister Winter” I think goes really well with Terry’s post too. It’s from his album entitled, “Songs from Christmas.” (But that’s okay; we’re only January, after all…)
I think it’s beautiful. Even if we don’t have icy hearts at the moment or ever again (God-willing), I bet we can all remember a moment, a day or a period in our lives when we did. And we’ll see that “gratitude” theme in the lyrics that’s been on all our minds lately. Hmmmmm.
