With Thanksgiving just a few weeks away and trees bursting with vibrant colors, it is the perfect time to enjoy the brisk autumn air and reflect on the countless blessings we are all grateful for. Among those blessings we can count A Grateful Heart, Mindy Jostyn’s soulful folk rendition of the familiar hymn, sung to the tune of a traditional Irish melody. It is one of ten songs of gratitude found on the compilation album Songs of Thanksgiving, featuring the best of the best of the Watchfire Music artists compiled with loving care by Creative Director, Peter Link. This song is originally found on Mindy Jostyn’s beloved album In His Eyes, a wonderful collection of 16 non-denominational folk hymns produced by Mindy and Matt Balitsaris and flavored with musical influences from around the world.
