I am physically dragging. Preparations for a family Memorial Day picnic stretched out over most of the past few days, and will take a good portion of today to clean up. It was a great picnic…a wonderful gathering to honor two mothers who had birthdays in May, spend time with family, and remember our father who served in World War II.
I had no blog post scheduled, and God in his goodness led me to this beautiful song, an instant uplift for my spirit. I hope it does the same for you. Here is a loose translation I found on the web.
“They have blessings; those who pray.
Jesus himself said so, Alleluia.
They have peace.
They have joy.
They have well-being. Alleluia.”
Wana Baraka (Kenyan Folk Song)

I direct a concert band in a retirement community in Florida.
We always perform a holiday concert, and celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanza in our concert selections. To celebrate Kwanza, we play “ African Alleluia” (“WanaBaraka”) arranged
by John OReilly. Both the band and the audience really like this
uplifting Kenyan folk song!
