The film is about a narrowly avoided Apocalypse. Alanis plays the part of God and Alan Rickman played the Angel Gabriel. I shall tell you no more but I can highly recommend the film.
The words are on the video and once you have heard and read them you will see, I hope , why I think this song is of worth and means a lot to me. Especially with todays news in the middle East in fact all over the world everyday.
Female, wife, full time mother and Grandmother. I am not as happy go lucky as I used to be but I am still bubbling along on simmer! I have three handsome sons all grown and flown.The youngest married with a beautiful wife and two sons of his own. Eleven years ago I was working, running a home, driving and socializing then bang in a split second all that was gone. I had an accident at home. I broke my back, not for the first time, I had broken it 10 years previously as well. Unfortunately this time I had broken it really badly and it was truly messed up so I had to have two operations. I was told before each operation that the outcome could mean I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. Still as some guy once wrote "I am still standing " yes "better than I ever was " not quite but with the help of a walking stick and as long as I do not stand or sit in one position for too long, I am still standing! Update I no longer use the walking stick . I had lots of friends before the accident but when things like this happen, you loose most of them. Their lives move on and mine stood still and so they left me behind ...I know that is just the way life is but it hurt and always will. Then I looked around and saw those who were still there for me, these friends are the roses in my garden they need to be tended well. They are the diamonds in the dust, I will of been married 50yrs plus this year . Pain and boredom are my enemies now, I have to find different ways to approach life, use my pain befriend it almost...yer right , well that is what they tell me at the pain clinic ROFLMAO ...... if only I could! I have found an outlet for my fears, frustrations and night terrors . I have started writing poetry if that name can be applied to my writing. I hope I do not come over as a moaning winger. I hope I am past all that. I also hope that you might see how the poetry is moving from very dark through the grey and
hopefully in to light ??
I need to update this a little here. I have worked very hard over the years since my accident, I go to the gym regularly, I have a Pilates class and a core class once a week . The guys at the gym and my Pilates teacher cajoled, teased, bullied and encouraged me to abandon my walking stick! :) My back is no longer straight it is C shaped because of the injury and I have lost two and a half inches in height but my Pilates and Core teachers have helped me to stand up as straight and as strongly as possible. Pain and depression are still hanging on my arm but I have weapons to use against them and if I say so myself I cope well.
I have made lots of new friends, real diamonds. I am also very grateful for all the support and help I have encountered here on Wordpress. Hugs and welcome to everyone who visits.

Great film! I’d forgotten the song!!!
Love Song, love Film🤗💗💓
Great film! One of Kevin Smith’s “New Jersey” series of movies (he plays Silent Bob in those films).
Yes love the film too💓
Very powerful song and video Sis. One that I had not know before. I can certaainly understand why you chose this. 🙂
It a beautiful and such i deep song i like to think God was leaning over Alanis’s shoulder as she wrote this. 💗💝💜
Yes, indeed. that is a beautiful thought 🙂
Yes indeed 💗
Yup, great movie, and interesting casting Alanis Morrisette as God. Alan Rickman played Metatron, one of the Seraphim (as opposed to Gabriel, an archangel) – Metatron was “the Voice of God,” because, as Metatron explained, to really hear God would be more than a human being could survive.
Oops your right, thanks for that, seen the movie four times and I still got that wrong!!💜😱
I know because I’ve read reviews of the movie and it was also mentioned in some of the online obits for Alan Rickman – but I found it difficult to make out the name as he announces it in the movie. It’s a fun role for Alan Rickman – and reading this makes me want to watch it again! BTW, besides the inspired casting of Alanis Morrisette, and the fun of watching Matt Damon and Ben Affleck as two malevolent angels who want to bring about the end of the universe (which Alan Rickman’s angel is working to prevent), I also particularly enjoyed Chris Rock’s character as a prophet or saint – another one of the good guys, anyway.
Definitely my favourite film!
