This song, these words are like a prayer to me.
Over fifteen years ago, a friend had breast cancer, and these were the words in my heart as she went through her surgery. Everything was indeed alright, and there’s never been a hint of the disease since.
Then last fall when Margaret was in the hospital for those five weeks, the hardest and scariest of my whole life, she saw these three little birds outside her window
We all took it as a sign that Margaret and her unborn baby girl would be fine. And they were.
The past few days, I have been aching with fear because one of the friends I love best in the world is in critical condition, in an induced coma, and on life support. This morning, Three Little Birds came on the radio, and I am praying it is yet again a good, good sign that all will be alright with him.
I couldn't find a good video of Bob singing this, so I thought his son's version would be the next best thing.
