As I write this, a dear friend is grieving the loss of her father. He passed away this morning.
I felt it important to put together a special episode of the show with songs to which those of us in what I call “the unfortunate fellowship,” this defined as believers who have said goodbye on this earth to family and/or friends who were also believers, can relate. There is magic and loss in our lives; the magic of what once was and will again be on the day of that great and glorious Reunion, the loss of what is now as we mourn the impossible to fill emptiness in our lives once occupied by those we loved, do love, and always will love.
A funny thing happened today while I was rummaging around my computer getting things back up and running on this site. I discovered I had two episodes of CHOBR for which the music was all done, but there were no voiceovers by yours truly. I had apparently recorded them this past December, but for whatever reason never completed them. Interesting. Anyway, rather than finish them normally I’ve decided to make them both music-only episodes and place them here as podcast only special episodes. A thank you to those among you who have stuck with me during these past several months.
