Hello All,


I have loved a Celtic worship song called “May This Journey”…  It is a song that both resonates and provides spiritual support to many of the trials we are faced with in our ever changing journey thru life…  I have played it hundreds of times during past trials and listening to it again, It has also provided support to my journey with PCa during times of fear, frustration, and impatience.


My step-daughter Jenny (Avis’s daughter) sang a version of this song at our wedding in 2003, to reflect on the trails both of us had faced in our past lives and what a blessing it was for us to meet and come together in marriage at these later stages of our lives. 


Jenny did a great job with the song and it is very honest and heartfelt…  Just like the HealingWell forum… I would like to share it with all of you in the hope that at times of fear and hopelessness, it may provide some additional support to you…  along with all the love, care, and support you will receive from the many members of this forum.


This is about a 1.3mb mp3 file that will play on most PC s (real player, windows media player, yahoo music box…)…  You can “save it” and then play it any time you would like.


Love and God Bless!





This version of the song “May This Journey” was released in 2002 in the album “In Christ Alone”…  A series of Celtic worship songs…  The album was a joint project by an excellent group of Celtic women vocalists.  This song was sung by Moya Brennan I believe  (Enya and Moya are sisters) .

I'm mostly avoiding things 'cause I'm still emotional and very busy, but I made the mistake of listening.  Beautiful.  Wonderful.  I am drying my eyes.

Thank You,
