In church today the priest talked about places that had meant much for us, maybe the church we went to when we grew up. I looked around at the people and realized that most of them have visited this church since they were very young, included my husband and our children. I was about 25 when I first came here but I liked it so much so when we started to plan for our wedding it felt natural to do it here. We usually go here at Easter and in the summertime because it's close to our lake house.
I have also been singing in the little "Summer Choir" some years. But that is very, very amateur, as we rehearse on Thursday evening the songs we're going to sing on Sunday so anyone who're visiting the village can join us. Sometimes we're only three but today we had a special song worship and were so lucky to be six! We sang songs we've been singing through the years and I'm so grateful that we sang my favorite at the end. Gabriellas Song was written for a Swedish film and Helen Sjöholm did the acting and singing. Her character is a young mother with a husband who didn't treat her well. It was very touching to this song and I think that we all had many feelings when we loudly sang the last line. I can't give you our version..... But if you want to listen to a the really good singer and se this part from the film with Helen Sjöholm singing Gabriellas Song , please do!
