Watch This Video, Because You Need a Little Beauty In Your Life: “A Hallelujah Christmas” by Cloverton

I’ve made a couple of new friends, Joshua & Tiffany Svorinic, through my church. Josh is in the band Cloverton & they’ve put together a little video Christmas present for their fans. It’s an adaptation of the great Leonard Cohen tune “Hallelujah,” and it’s absolutely beautiful. As I attempt to ratchet down my pace of life from now until Christmas, I’m finding this song helpful.

    No matter the stage in personal evolution, we all seek attraction, attention, and eventually LOVE. For some connections, this is simply not possible. It can be rather frustrating not being able to have a good connection with someone over an extended period of time. Especially seeing other couples happy, frolicked and displaying public affection.
