Andrew – what depth!!  Thanks for the perspective!  We can’t cure pain that isn’t properly diagnosed.  This mama’s angst isn’t residual mourning over a past that never was.  It is in fact the collision of my desire to protect my kids from a sinful world and the realization that they (and I) ARE the sinful world.  The cure, as you remind us, is “the voice of Jesus calling you His own.”

Light for the Lost Boy is easily one of my favorite albums of 2012. Each song is full of longing,  truth, and hope. Nearly a year later, I still listen to it regularly.  If you’re thinking about buying it, don’t wait.

“Light for the Lost Boy” is Peterson’s finest work. Lyrical gems are expected from this gifted writer, and they are here in abundance. Production has been expanded, and the resulting musical surprises are refreshing. And the remarkably consistent theme is poignant for every sometimes-weary grown-up: the longing for eternity and the glimpses of it in the temporal that bring light to our daily existence. These songs address this human condition spot on, resonating and sympathizing and encouraging.

Every now and then, an album comes along that does more than provide me with a good listening experience.  These albums challenge me, teach me, and help me make it through some major life transitions.  Light for the Lost Boy is one such album.  I purchased this album as I was going through a moment in my life, as well as struggling with some personal issues.  This album helped me articulate a longing that I was feeling in my heart, and helped me begin a process of overcoming things in my life that had stolen my innocence.  Thank you, Mr. Peterson, for an amazing look at what is lost, and for helping me remember that though we cannot always regain what is lost, we can be found and redeemed.
