Crying at the truth and the beauty of this song...it's a broken hallelujah indeed. My heart is with yours, especially today.

Michelle said...

We prayed for you and Josh - by name - at Morning Prayer this morning. All our voices raised to say, "I cry aloud to God, cry aloud to God that he may hear me."

Mercy. Grace. Peace.

Truer words were never spoken. With you today.

just heartbreaking. I imagine that today may be even harder than last year at this time when you were in shock. I'm thinking of you all day and lighting a candle for Josh. I wish I could do something to help ease the pain.

I clicked on the song one of the most beautiful and heart breaking songs ever written and scrolled down a bit to see the beautiful and exuberant photos of Josh. I cried and lit a candle for Josh.

A cold and broken Hallelujah not truer words were ever sung

Peace, Janet (LIP)

Surprised to see this song posted here. It's been running through my head for a week. Maybe it's for you...

Music gives voice to the unspoken. This song speaks volumes. Thinking of you and lighting a candle for Josh. My heart goes out to you and your family.

It is indeed a beautiful and haunting song. I am so sorry for the loss of your lovely son. A candle in Brooklyn is lit for him.

My thoughts are with you and your family today.

Undone...the song and this day...just leaves my mouth without any words dear one...sitting at my computer, watching the sun go down, a soft pink on the horizon---and the waves are soft on the shore...
someday...not too long, we will know all we do not know. my heart continues to hold you and yours so close today.

This is one of my favorite songs in the world, all the versions of it, its poetry. I've been thinking of you and of Josh so much in the weeks leading to today, and today itself. Sending much love.

A candle is lit here. I call it my Mary candle because of the colour of the blue and I light when I need to know that another Mother understands what can't be uttered.
Thinking of you.

A light flickers in the snow belt for you and your son this night.

There is an internet site: gratefulness.org/candles - here you can light candles for your heart's comfort. Have lit two for you and Josh in rememberance.
This site has been a wonderful place for centering and comfort.
Thoughts with you daily as you heal.
