Nonna wrote this song some time ago when she was 16 and before the fibro had taken so much away from her.
She is making these videos as precious memories for her children. I think that’s a very important thing to do. However ill we are we are more than the “fibro” and the memories we make with or for our children reminds them and us of that. The Psalms are very human as David calls on his God at times of joy, sorrow, sickness and distress; and I must admit I like the fact that in places the Psalmist is just a little grumpy with God.
As Nonna says, the doctors are now beginning to realise that fibro is a progressive illness that slowly takes a little more from us each year. It’s very important when we have children to give them a glimpse of something that is strong and healthy- such as Faith.
The fact that I love this Psalm which is so much part of Divine Office, is an added bonus.
Just learned my friend K’s mother has died this morning. Please pray for the repose of her soul and for her grieving family and friends.
