Bring Him Home

cliff_diver_quebradaI’m going out on a vulnerability limb and  diving into a vulnerability pool-naturally I’m scared to death that I’m going to be  totally immersed.  But I’m going to be courageous.  It feels right;  albeit scary.  I have to admit that I am losing my nerve with each household task that I perform (change the laundry, make a bed, hang up a skirt, fold a blanket).  Ok, good, the desire to put myself out there has passed…;)  Except that maybe I can help a friend today.  That is my hope.  And now the feeling comes surging back.

Ha!  If the following makes you uncomfortable, vulnerability does that-I apologize (maybe).  If it opens up your heart, vulnerability does that-please let me know (for sure). My backstory:  I have children.

Here’s my vulnerability: (take 3:17 minutes and just feel-then scroll to the end)

God on high
Hear my prayer
In my need
You have always been there
He is young
He’s afraid
Let him rest
Heaven blessed.
Bring him home
Bring him home
Bring him home
Bring him peace
Bring him joy
He is young
He is only a boy
You can take
You can give
Let him be
Let him live
If I die,
let me die
Let him live
Bring him home
Bring him home
Bring him home.
That sums it up.
Thank you, Claude-Michel Schonberg, for putting words (but most importantly music) to my greatest longing.
Thank you, Josh Groban, for performing that song with the perfect amount of love.
Thank you, Brene Brown, for bringing me this vulnerability moment.
And thank YOU, for sharing this with me.

    • Thank you for indulging me. This song is my life line. It’s a prayer, it puts rescue solidly where it belongs, and it keeps my heart soft. Love you.

  1. This is my all time favorite song. I love listening to Josh Groban also, the two together just gives me goosebumps. Thanks for posting
