Hello there! This is a powerful, heartbreaking soul song. Jimmy Cliff is a Jamaican singer-songwriter, and also an actor. He was raised in St. James, Jamaica and began writing songs at quite an early age. He began a collaboration at age 14 with producer Leslie Kong. Kong secured a deal for Cliff with the major Jamaican record company, Island Records. Although Cliff had some commercial success with his early songs, his career really took off in when he starred in the reggae movie drama, The Harder They Come. That movie introduced people all over the world to reggae music, and is undoubtedly the best movie ever to feature reggae. The song Many Rivers to Cross was written by Cliff and included in his self-titled album.
About Tim Londergan
Cliff was aged 21 when he wrote and recorded the song in Cliff stated he wrote the song due to the trouble he was having making it as a successful musical artist after originally finding success in his home of Jamaica, beginning at age 14, before moving to the United Kingdom. I was struggling, with work, life, my identity, I couldn't find my place; frustration fueled the song. Most of the time it was France but sometimes it was Germany. It was a very frustrating time. I came to England with very big hopes and I saw my hopes fading. And that song came out of that experience.
I'm trying to figure out what I'm getting into in the coming years if I stick around. I get sweet texts some morning when he is on his way to the office and that's all it takes the rest of my day is amazing. This was the biggest one for me.
Thanks for sharing your story. I ran across your post out of desperation. I guess the only risk is your husband having an affair with someone at work. Ask her out on dates. I'd at least insist that at 12 the kids can choose to disaffiliate. Now that my boyfriend and I are beginning to talk about a future together, though, I realize that I need to consider this question of marrying outside of the church very carefully. Ultimately, it comes down to this.
