The question recently posed to me was, "What is meaningful to you as you work through grief and loss?" Especially with regards to music, poetry, mantra, meditation.
One piece of music that always does it to me is, "The Lord Bless You and Keep You" written by John Rutter. Sitting into that music whether I am grieving, longing for rest, or sinking into Sabbath always lifts my spirits. Sometimes I forget how amazing I think choir music is! Then I'm blown away all over again.
My top three go-to's for music chills are:
1. The Lord Bless You and Keep You by John Rutter
2. The Conversion of Saul by Dr. Z. Randall Stroope
3. Lux Arumque by Eric Whitacre
And an add-on:
4. Leonard Dreams of His Flying Machine by Eric Whitacre (this one also makes me laugh out loud)
What is meaningful to you? What music, poetry, mantra, or meditation comforts you in grief, lifts you in love, or settles you on the Sabbath?
