break the silence

I haven't shared a song in quite some time.

It's been haunting me for a while.

But the truth is, I haven't stumbled onto anything amazing lately. And then this lo-fi, well lived-in masterpiece of a recording randomly played on my iTunes.

I instantly knew it was the song that would break the silence. As always, enjoy.

יוֹם כִּפּוּר

A prayer on this Day of Atonement

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever.
Matthew 6:9-13(KJV)

Thru the eyes of a child...

Actual conversation between my mum and my 3-year old niece that took place earlier today:

Kiaya: I love you, Nanny.
Nanny: Why do you love me Kiaya?
Kiaya: Because that's how I am, I love everybody in the whole world.

As I'm writing this thru eyes blurred by tears,
I'm praying that I would see the people in this world more clearly.

More like a child.

More like Kiaya.

More like my Lord.
