The Peace of Jerusalem

In shedding a bit of light on who I am I decided to post a video that my husband made. The song in the background is called "The Peace of Jerusalem," and my husband wrote it (the lyrics come from Psalm 122). This song was written shortly after we lost our first son at 23 weeks gestation.

God has truly healed our hearts and our strength to move on rests in him.

"Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever." -Psalm 73: 25-26
