  1. I adore the arrangement

    1. Lorna lives in South Africa, so the approach to this song of Mindy’s puts Lorna right at home. :o)

      1. I actually live in The Lake District, UK now but most of my life was lived in Zimbabwe, South Africa being our closet neighbour. But we know there is only One Country and that is My Father’s World !

        1. And here all this time I thought you lived in South Africa. I must do a better job of listening.

  2. Very uplifting and refreshing. Would love to hear more. God bless Mindy. Russ Cramer
