Perhaps Xanthe has heard from Marietta by now? If not, I will try to arrange a connection soon (unless Bill or Gilles do so before I get the chance.) What a nice connection that will be...what a gift.

CONGRATS dear XANTHE!!! What talent - what heart!

EARLIER:
Xanthe has yet to hear from Marietta about the song, but sincerely hopes she accepts her song-gift in the spirit of lovingkindness it was written. Broken Dreams, Xanthe says to tell you that it was for YOU as well, people who really GET IT, that her songs are written. Thank you for your honest and heartfelt response. Kind wishes, Music Central Recording Studio

“The following just came in on a recent comment from a songwriter inspired by our dear Marietta!

Dear Marietta, Hi. I'm an award-winning songwriter. I saw you on Oprah years back, and your story of forgiveness and compassion moved me to tears. It also moved me to write you a song. It's called "Marietta's Song" and it is a gift for you. I wrote to Oprah trying to find you so that I could offer you this song in recognition of your inspiring acts and your amazing depth of soul. Oprah never wrote back. Music Xray, the internet's biggest A&R website liked the song so much they recently entered it into a song contest. The song I wrote for you has won TEN DAYS STRAIGHT, which is very rare, and I believe it now qualifies for the Songcat Wall of Fame. I dearly want you to hear the song that you inspired, Marietta. If you want to, please go to http://song.cat (GO here Click on "Marietta's Song" and please accept my humble offering to you.

Kindest regards, Xanthe Littlemore xanthe.songs@yahoo.com.au

Soon I hope to find out more about this award-winning songwriter and post more. Anyone heard "Marietta's Song" yet? I'm sure happy to discover this comment in my rush to get back to a family birthday...because IF I were a songwriter, I'd certainly have been inspired to write one based on Marietta's life, story and soul as well!

Thanx so much for posting and I will try to let everyone at the Journey of Hope know right away dear Xanthe Littlemore.

Congrats to MARIETTA as well for continuing to inspire with her obedience to LOVE.

Love and Prayers Xanthe for a long, fruitful songwriting career.

Connie for all the "Journey of Hope" family

I went to the web site using the " HERE" click on but could find no way to vote or hear the song.

Hi Connie,
Thanks so much for your wonderful, kind prayers and your post.

I posted my original message on your blog on 5th Feb 2011; Saturday night in Australia, so it would have been Saturday morning in the States.

I hope and pray that my song-offering means something to Marietta. It was written for her, not for any contest, and the fact that it won the songcat contest tells us how powerful Marietta's life and example is, and how deeply she touches people's souls.

Blessings to you Connie, and to Bill and Marietta and everyone else.

Warmest regards,
Xanthe

Broken Dreams said...

I cried listening to the Marietta's song. Really touches your heart and soul. Blessings to you Xanthe

Connie L. Nash said...

I will try to straighten out a few details and the URL, Ron, and thanx a lot.

Also loved the comments from Xanthe and Broken Dreams.

More soon,

Connie

Dear Connie,
Thanks for all your kindness and help. I haven;t heard from Marietta yet, so I hope she is OK.

I worry that the song may have brought up some painful feelings for her, which was not what I intended.

Anyway, God bless you Connie, and Bill and Marietta and everyone who is doing such great work here. You are so precious.

Connie L. Nash said...

my computer's back now so I will try to locate her by email or phone.

I will also try to get out the word further on your song!

Thanx again and GOD BLESS YOU as well, Xanth - keep up the good work.

Connie L. Nash said...

Any luck on Marietta turning up? If not, guess it's time to call her...would have done earlier except for near laryngitis and a little shyness. (yes, she's that awesome!)

Connie L. Nash said...

I'm SO glad to report that Marietta and Xanthe are FINALLY in touch....

I hope to report more on the effect this song is having soon.

Let me know if ANYONE hears anything.

Blessings to all - especially inspirers like Marietta and HEARERS/composers/singers like Xanth!

Thank you Connie for keeping the conversation about Marietta's song going. Thank you Xanthe, glad you and Marietta are in touch. When I heard the song for the first time, I immediately called Marietta and told her about it. I listened as she played the song on her computer. She made some utterings as the song played. She was very moved, I know she loved it. And Xanthe I loved your comment for "Broken heart", that Marietta's song is for all of us who get it. I got it and I loved it. And thank you Marietta for being who you are, a precious child of God. God's Peace,
