I have this friend. We have been friends since high school, and even though we hardly see each other anymore (about once every year, if that) we remain very good friends. She’s the kind of person who will inspire you just by having a simple conversation with her. She is encouraging about anything I am going through in life, and she has this very sweet spirit. She sees God’s goodness in everything. She is also extremely talented, even though she hardly lets anyone see that in her.

I got an email from her today. The email was in regards to a secret music blog shes been keeping. I started listening to her music and I couldnt even move. I sat there with my mouth wide open, my hand on my heart, and tears in my eyes. I listened to her songs until I had to leave for work. I felt deeply moved and inspired. Not only is her music striking and spectacular, but I am also so proud of her. I met her when she was a sophomore in high school and I have had the pleasure to see her grow into this incredibly talented, wise, awe-inspiring woman of God. Needless to say I just had to get permission to share her music blog with you. My hope is that she inspires you as I have no doubt she will.

Last year I decided that maybe if I saw it all the time I would be inspired to play so I took it out of the protective bag and set it on its stand. It only took a month before the Florida sun turned the beautiful blue into a sea green. So that’s why its worn. Its traveled with me through five moves. Every year I say to myself that this is the year. This is the year I’m going to learn one song. But every year it sits there with all the music bubbling up inside. So what am I going to do this year?  I’m going to take it day by day, actually I think I will take it chord by chord.
