Well, my Friends! Where has January gone? I am so sorry that it has been so long since my last blog . . . some of you have begun calling or e-mailing wondering where I am and am I alright. Alright? Very alright, friends!
Do you remember back at the very beginning of January when I said that I was going out on a date? Well, one date turned to two and two to three and so on! The Lord has been kind and gracious and brought a very wonderful man into my life. I am not sure that I am ready to really go into ‘all’ of what this is and ‘all’ of the emotions that are wrapped up in it . . . but let me just say, for now, that there is a smile returning deep within my heart . . . life returning deep within me . . . and it feels VERY good!
There is much to be done on the music front right now . . . “The Long October Road” is beginning to wind down. Paul (my producer) is beginning to mix and master the album (terms for the final touches ‘technically.’) I am so thrilled with this project as a whole. I truly cannot tell you the depth of satisfaction that I feel when I listen to the songs. First of all – to have such deeply emotional songs that I was able to co-write and then watch as they came to life for the whole world to hear! Wow! What an incredible process. Then, musically and vocally, this project is deep and rich and EXACTLY what I have longed to put my heart into! I am so proud of what this album is and I truly look forward to watching God move. I pray that His rich anointing will be ALL over the songs and that they will minister to thousands of hurting people! He is just SO, SO good!
There are many details that still need to be thought of and ironed out . . . designs and artwork, pre-release and release dates, bookings (would love to sing in your area . . . please contact me for booking information.) I just lost my booking agent . . . so that is an area of desperate need and prayer. On top of all of that – my goal in the next week or so is to get the book outline done! So, there is MUCH to be done . . . but I am truly so thankful for the leading of the Sweet Lord in my life . . . thankful for the opportunity to do any of it! I can’t wait to minister and teach and offer hope and encouragement to those in need.
I know this is not very ‘deep.’ I will write ‘deep’ soon! But, I did want to get an update out to you so that you know that all is well – just a TON to be done.
