Sara Groves – I Saw What I Saw

Oh my dear friends and fellow music lovers! I have had some busy times and some more busy times are ahead. I just got back from a trip to Seattle to see one of my dear friends graduate from Naturopathic Medical school. (And she did it while having 3 little boys! The oldest is 5. A true wonder woman!) It was also a mini reunion with a few of my other dear friends – we all met in our first year of college 11 years ago and have managed to get many of us together every summer since then. It’s always a short, sweet and precious time that I look forward to each year.

And the very night I arrived home, rehearsals started for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, in which I play a Wife. They are doing it summerstock style, where everything is crammed into all day sessions in just two weeks before we start dress rehearsals. I’ve never done such a thing and it’s quite intense, so I’m not sure how much time and energy I’ll have for blogging in the next couple of weeks. But never fear, it’s only a temporary thing, and I may end up doing more little quick posts like this, because the music really does feed me, and I’ll be needing those boosts!

So if I was doing this right, I would do a bunch of research and tell you all about how wonderful Sara Groves is, but all I have to offer at the moment is this beautiful video my mom forwarded to me. Sara wrote the song inspired by a trip to Rwanda, and if it doesn’t tug at your heart and give you hope at the same time I’m not sure what will.

Feed and email readers may need to come to the blog to see the video

Gorgeous right? Here’s Sara’s website if you want to go find out more:

    Hey Jana, glad you like! The last couple days of rehearsals were pretty brutal, but I think it’s going to be smooth sailing from here on out now that the play has opened successfully!

    Mandy, Thank you so much for reading! There are so many great women artists out there who deserve a bigger audience, I hope I’m helping them in my little way. :)
