Pray First

I am learning to pray more through every situation. I know there is power in prayer. Talking to God helps when I don’t understand and it also helps when I totally get it. God gets it. If I just sit in silence God gets it, if I open my mouth and the words jumble all up or my mind starts to wander, God gets it. I can come to Him with thoughts and thanksgiving. He listens, He hears and He accepts me unconditionally. Why would I go anywhere else but to God in prayer?

Prayer: Dear Lord teach me to come to you before others. Teach me cast all my cares on you. Amen.


So Close

Sometimes my sunshine is gone, my moonlight gets dim and my clouds hang low over my own little world. When everything and everybody seems distant, so far away, out of reach or beyond what I can see, that’s when I must remember how close God is to me. God never drifts away. He never misses a call or an appointment. He is so close that every time we start to feel alone, outcast or far away we must cling to Him like the sun,

moon, clouds and stars cling to the sky.

I encourage you today to hold on.

It Depends


I have decided to put on some depends today and declare it’s possible to live in peace.  This scripture always speaks to me. Now that’s what I call living on pitch!



Music Break

Sometimes I need a break, not a coffee break but a music break.  Music is one way I relieve stress.  I get lost in songs and at times I get really caught up in lyrics. I’m in the studio between my ears.  I start to fade into a verse or chorus and slowly fade out of everyday tasks, troubles and time constraints.   It’s just me and the music as I listen intently for my cue to journey on to beautiful chords, progressions and sounds.  I may even drift away like sand but I am always paying close attention like a drummer who doesn’t miss a beat.  Each song takes me on a journey through a museum of  instruments, vocal arrangements, style and overall artistry.  I love taking music breaks.  Listening to music has always been soothing for my soul.   I thought I’d share a song I play sometimes  for stressful days and when I am in need of a break.  God is faithful and gospel artist Yolanda Adams reminds me every time she sings the song called Alwaysness.    It’s done so flawlessly.  I love her voice and this song.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.   Click on the YouTube link below and enjoy a little music break.
