Amazing Grace on the black keys

Do you know how much Amazing Grace means to me? Did you know that I sing it to Laura EVERY NIGHT before she goes to sleep?

I loves me some Negro spirituals. I'm totally crying. I can't believe how you touch me EVERY TIME just when and how I need to be touched. Dude. Seriously.

"If the mountain was smooth, you couldn't climb it."

We are all connected.

Awesome. I totally want to meet Unknown too.

There are only two songs that, whenever I hear them, are guaranteed to make me tear up..sometimes out and out sob...The Star Spangled Banner (I can be embarrassing at sporting events!!) and Amazing Grace....every time.
My grandfather, who passed away a couple of years ago, always said that Amazing Grace was just the song one needed to remind you that God was there in times when you felt He wasn't.

A long time ago...and almost another lifetime, it seems, I lived in Atlanta...a few miles frm our house was a church, that on a Sunday morning, you could hear just about to come off its hinges from the music and the power that was coming out of that building. The songs, the emotions and the energy...even with listening on the road nearby, never going in...was enough to give me the strength I needed for the coming week.

Thanks for this Trish...I needed to hear that.
