the civil wars
new song alert. thank you to my musical aficionado, abianne lee miller. and I actually am not sure if this song is really new. BUT. it is so good. I don't think I have ever heard a song that better captures what william blake wrote: "we are here to learn to endure the beams of love." it is hard, it is messy, it hurts, it begs forgiveness, but it's love. and we endure it. and we learn to give it. it shapes us and breaks us. it encourages, gives, and frees us. We stand up under its beams.
I don't have a choice, but I still choose you.
