and all my readers.
Let's get this week started with the proper foundation for what is sure to be an upsetting time.
Lone Star Parson, a Brit and (holy) Anglican priest, living and serving Christians in Texas, loves (almost) all things Russian.
With proper thanks to Col. B. Bunny, who blogs with Francis Porretto over at Liberty's Torch, for posting this beautiful song by Simon Khorolskiy & Friends, aptly named Heaven is My Native Land.
Simon has a Youtube channel with many more wonderful songs. Stop over there and sample more of his work.
From his website:
My name is Simon, I am a singer based in Washington State, where I reside with my wife and 5 small children. Although I grew up in the United States, I was born into a Russian family that immigrated here in 1992 when I was two years old.
Music has always been an important part of my life. After our Lord saved me and I grew in my personal relationship with Him, He has blessed me with a passion to sing and compose music for His glory. It is a great honor and privilege to wake up every day and be able to make music for a living. I find great inspiration for new songs in the Bible, many of them have been born while meditating on God’s word. In addition, the Pacific Northwest is full of God’s majestic natural beauty that I feature in my videos. It continually motivates me to praise and worship the Creator.
