autumn tuesday tune.

i know.  it's been a while, and lately i sure have had a hankering for a tuesday tune.  oh, you too?  fantastic.

my autumn soundtrack has been completely saturated with "non-Christian" bands that echo longings for faith, peace and a connection to a higher power.  i love how the Lord can use songs like those to speak to me and bring me joy.

i could probably do a tuesday tune every week until the end of the year and find a different mumford and sons song that i love, but this one seems especially poignant as of late.  the Christian overtones in this song seem so undeniable to me, and the song represents starting over and the grace that all those who believe are given.

"it seems that all my bridges have been burned
but, you say that's exactly how this grace thing works
it's not the long walk home
that will change this heart,
but the welcome i receive with the restart."


also, how great is the banjo and irish-pub feel of the whole song? not that i've ever been to ireland... but i've got a pretty good imagination.  plus, i've seen "p.s. i love you" about 37 times. sorry i'm not sorry.
