Music is the poetry of the air. ~Richter
Music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual life. ~Ludwig van Beethoven
Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent. ~Victor Hugo
Participating in creating music and listening to & discovering new music – they are absolute passions of mine.
Yes, I write every single day & that brings me a great feeling of accomplishment, but music touches me, moves me, changes me in ways that words cannot. I am confident in saying that God has blessed me with a pleasant & unique voice. I can say that without vanity because I know that it is a gift & that He has given it to me to be used both for my own joy & to glorify Him. I like to think that it’s not my voice alone; I use it on my own time, sure, but other times, like for leading worship, I give it back to God. I have my voice not because of anything I have done, but only because He gave it to me, & I am so thankful. Oh, what a state my soul would be in without the release of my songs! I play guitar, ukulele, & piano – but only the basics, enough for me to be able to play the music to which I can sing. I am thankful everyday for my ears & my heart for music. I love that I appreciate it & am constantly being touched & changed by it. My life moves to it.
