Good morning all:) This morning I am once again sitting in my grandma’s kitchen enjoying a cup of tea and a snowy view out the window. Yesterday was my first day home after being gone for a few months , and so it was both productive and refreshing. Today I’m off to spend the weekend with my brothers in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It’s quite possible that I’ll even have the chance to go skiing with them. Whatever we do will be an adventure. I’m excited!
On Monday, I will be driving back to Indiana to record my final vocal takes for the upcoming album. After nearly a year of planning and praying and dreaming and working on this album it is now coming to an end; or shall I say a beginning:) We will record my vocals and background vocals this week and then begin the mixing process; with plans to send the final artwork and audio in for replication by March 1st. Which means that the album will be out and for sale by the second week in March! I’m excited to begin sharing these songs as I travel around. The album title is “Speak To Me.” It comes from a few thoughts all meshed together in my mind.
Matthew 6:28 – See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that even Solomon in all His splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field , which is here today and tomorrow is thrown in the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
Why do we worry so and strive and beat ourselves up when all the while we have a God who is patiently waiting for us to Speak to Him?
Psalm 62:8 – Trust in Him at all times, O people; Pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge.
Sometimes we carry unnecessary burden. God did not come to weigh us down but to be our refuge and our source of life.
John 3:17 – For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.
I’m looking forward with hope and joy to what God has in store.
Much love and grace to you,
