Amazing Grace

I have always loved the song Amazing Grace, but I think hearing it in Native American flutes just added a whole new love for a song that I will say has many plays and tears in my life.

I also like it in bag pipes.

Listen to this, it is incredible.

I found it on a blog I follow Dr. Maithri (Pronounced My 3) is an angel on earth and works in Swaziland with children and people with HIV. He is also a glorious singer himself, a poet too. I didn't find the song on Soaring impulse but Dr. M's other blog a blog dedicated to the memory of John O'Donohue, who kissed Dr. M's life with his fragrant words.

In blog land there are people that move my life and touch my soul and they are right at the keyboard I type on. This is indeed a wonderful world we live in. Angels are among us everyday.

My daughter, granddaughter, and I donated old baby clothes, baby baths, extra diapers, shoes, and all kinds of stuff on Saturday to a place called Serenity House, their mission is to:

“North County Serenity House is committed to providing behavioral health services in a safe, secure environment to women, children, and families through a multidisciplinary approach that improves and promotes health, fosters learning, embraces diversity, and enhances quality of life in our community.”
It is a humbling experience to see women that take your old stuff as if it is Christmas and like it was brand new. It is a small thing that we did, but it made us feel great and we helped many families with the gesture.

We are saving up to make another run.

Maithri and Serenity House also take monetary donations if you are so inclined, follow their links. It takes a planet.

As Maithri says

"Walk with me.
Together we will find ways of making a change.
My love to you, Maithri"
