Little Soul's Song

Jill Langhus
Posted September 2, 2020 from Spain

Hello Dear Sisters (and Advocates),

I promised Dear Kaye, myself, and our Dear Little Soul that I would someday sing one of my all time favorite songs, "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," and continue to push myself out of my comfort zone. Then, I saw the current call for stories, From Poetry to Paintings, and thought "it's time." I hope you enjoy it! I feel like anything is possible when I sing it.

This is my original story about our Dear Little Soul that I wrote almost a year ago, for those interested: https://www.worldpulse.com/community/users/jlanghus/posts/92208

Thanks for stopping by!

Dear Jill,

I enjoyed listening to you sing and loved your smile while singing...it is so soothing and so pure. The song that comes from the heart and goes to the heart. It is a year since you posted Dear Little Soul story and it is so beautiful to share and show the spiritual growth in my opinion. I am glad to be part of your journey and you are such a beautiful soul. It is an honor to know you and serve with you.

Hello Again Lovely,

Aw, thank you:-) That's nice to know. I'm glad you felt, and saw that!

Yes! Quite awhile. I'm glad you're a part of it, too!

I feel the same way, dear. It's an honor to know you, too!

My darling Jill, you are such a pure soul. What a soul touching song. I woke up late at night lost in thoughts as my husband had to go to court and then log on to world Pulse and listened to this beautiful song over and over again. Thank you so much for sharing this soul uplifting song. You are so beautiful Jill and I love the beautiful blouse you have on.
Thank you also for the beautiful smile which is a reflection of the beautiful heart you have.
Will love to hear more of your songs.
God bless you my dear

I do hope you and your family stay safe, and well!

You're very welcome, honey:-)

Aw, I'm glad you thought so. I was rather nervous and had to do a few takes, and then I had to walk away and be okay with it...ha:-) I would still be doing it otherwise. I'm like, flat, nervous, and around again.

Hello, dear JLo,

Wow! I have goosebumps while listening and watching this video. How brave, dear! I'm so amazed and impressed. I'm teary-eyed, maybe because I know the background story of this one. My first reaction was, "Is she the singer of the Wizard of the Oz?".

Beautiful voice. Beautiful woman. Beautiful heart. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. I look forward to reading posts about your artworks, dear. Keep shining. This is the artists' time to showcase their talents and creation.

I am so amused because you always say you're shy, but you beat me in having a YouTube channel!Haha. Congratulations, love. I celebrate this milestone with you! More please.

Hello Again Kaye:-)

Goosebumps... wow! Love it! Thank you for your beautiful, loving feedback. You always have the most loving, sincere feedback for everyone.

Ha. You're funny.

I think it's my favorite story call yet:-) But I suppose it would be!

Oh, I'm shy. You can hear the nerves, and I was having difficulty breathing which is a big problem. I wish I could do another one of my favorites, Ave Maria for Christmas, but hmm, probably shouldn't have told you this, as I'm writing it. The higher ranges are definitely the most challenging when nervous. The sound will just cut off. Perhaps one day. Ha.

I had to create a YouTube channel for some grants that I was applying for and for my Liluye video...ha.

Be careful what you wish for...:-) XX

Yes, please post the rest of your drawings, designs, etc! Looking forward to watching your Ave Maria video. Great then! I subscribed to your channel yesterday. Yes, wishing for more here. :)

I plan on doing one more, featuring my Behance portfolio.

Ha. I knew you would say that about Ave Maria. I'll think about it. It's very daunting.

Okay, dear. Thanks for being so supportive, as always:-)

Hope you're doing well, and having a good weekend!

XX

Let's hear it for Ave Maria! How about a virtual concert to raise funds? You're welcome, dear. :)
All is well. Have a great week a head!

My fans will have to wait until I'm ready...ha:-)

Who would go and what cause would I support first... hmmm.... interesting idea, though.

Great to hear! Thanks. Hope you're having a good week, too!

For funds for Liluye, of course. :) That requires a lot of planning, though, but why not? You're welcome! You, too!

Hello Jill,
Oh what angelic voice that I did not understand the content of the song; It really is a work of art!
Thank you also for giving me the opportunity to re-read your story on "OUR DEAR LITTLE SOUL" which had left me in suspense.
Have a good weekend dearest.

FYI, these are the lyrics translated:
Quelque part au delà de l'arc en ciel loin la Haut
Il y a une terre dont j'ai entendu parler une fois dans une berceuse
Quelque part dans le ciel arc-en-ciel sont bleus
Et les rêves que tu oses rêver se réalisent vraiment

Un jour, je souhaiterai une étoile
Et réveille-toi là où les nuages sont loin
Derrière moi
Où les ennuis fondent comme des gouttes de citron
Loin au-dessus des cheminées
C'est là que tu me trouveras

Quelque part au-dessus des oiseaux bleus arc-en-ciel volent
Les oiseaux volent au-dessus de l'arc en ciel.
Pourquoi alors, oh, pourquoi pas moi?

Dear Jill, how calm and relaxing you sound.
Soft and sweet is the theme here. Just what we need at a time in our lives when there is so much stress and anxiety going on.
Surely we are praying for that rainbow of sunshine and hope and in the meantime it is a opportunity for us to move positively and seek to create the life and world you so gently sing about. When we move in this direction we help others along the way inspiring hope and prosperity. This is very nice my dear Sister. Sending you a big shout-out of thanks!
