Good Morning All!
This is Sarah. Just wanted to catch everyone up . . . I am amazed at all that happened last week. The we recorded, " " is a beautiful, anointed song that will minister to thousands of people! Getting the right vocals on the song was tough - but well worth the hours and hours it took. My producer, Paul, was really able to caress a new, more contemporary flavor out of my voice that I think you will all be excited about. We also wrote two great new songs. One of them is called "Not Today" and is a very fun, tap-your-foot, dance-along-with-it song. The other is a great new worship song called "Open." We worked ALL night last Wednesday (the day I did the radio interview at AFR and drove from Tupelo back to Nashville . . . I was exhausted when Paul looked at me around . and said, "Hey, what do you think about this tune . . .?" We then stayed up until 5 a.m. writing this song. It will be an incredible part of worship for many down the road!
There is so much to look forward to ~ I am singing at a Mary Kay event tonight, will be out in Coleman, MI next week, will speak for the Red Hat State Convention in a few weeks and am most excited about the 1st annual Chad Schieber Memorial Run (you can walk it, too :-) I am beginning the 'book writing' process, and the CD is completely written and now we begin the 'fun' part . . . the music! All of that, and yet the loneliness of grief is still so profound. I miss my beloved so very, very deeply. October brings with it the last of our 'firsts.' It will be the anniversary of Chad's passing. Will you please pray that we will know the perfect way to mark this day?
I am sure that wherever you are in your life today, that you have pain and that you understand that common thread of loneliness that accompanies pain. Please be encouraged. Our precious Heavenly Father will not leave you alone in your pain. He promises to be 'near to the brokenhearted.' He is so good, and so faithful. Psalm 62 says that we are to wait quietly before Him. He ALONE is our rock - a fortress where we WILL NOT be shaken! Steel away with God today, my friend. Let His sweet Holy Spirit minister to your pain today. Be still and know that HE IS GOD!
