“Reflections in Time”, a Forte Friday Post

With a new year before us, let us take a few moments to reflect on where we have been, and where we would like to be in the upcoming new year.  "Reflections in Time", a Forte Friday post . . . Christmas is over, and we are gratefully approaching a new year. 2017 has been a year of transition, in a sense . . . as is every year, I suppose. We go from one year to the next, transitioning into another phase of our lives. Hopefully, we can look back at 2017 and see that we are better than we were the year before. And, while we look back to see where we have been, we have to look forward to see where we are going. So, I decided to share my song, "Reflections in Time", from my Mary's Song album. It is a song that is all about "reflecting" . . . … [Read more...]

Mary’s Song, an album for Good Friday and Easter!

Mary's Song . . . a Love Song . . . With tomorrow being Good Friday, followed by Easter on Sunday, I thought I would share with you three of the songs from the album I composed and recorded, "Mary's Song". This album is about the emotions Mary Magdalene felt in the days, maybe weeks, leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus. In order to understand, it is important to look at her life as it related to Jesus. Mary Magdalene and Jesus . . . a love from a pure heart. We can see in the scriptures that Mary Magdalene is mentioned several times: Jesus cast demons out of her. It was Mary who sat at Jesus feet while her sister, Martha, was "cumbered about many things". She anointed His head and feet with oil prior to his … [Read more...]

“Mary’s Song”, a Forte Post

"Mary's Song" . . . the album . . . I know it's not Easter . . . but, I have been working on a sample track of my album, "Mary's Song", which was released in April of 2015. The theme of the songs center around Mary Magdalene and her love for Jesus, her Lord and Savior. As in the picture above, one of the important aspects of Mary Magdalene is that He revealed Himself to her first after he was resurrected. She then went to tell the other disciples who doubted her. The fact that He chose her to reveal Himself to, before the others, spoke volumes to me. She had to hold a special place in His heart. That's my opinion. So, I decided to share song with your that was the beginning of the "Mary's Song" album. It is appropriately entitled, "Mary's … [Read more...]

“Reflections in Time” on Broadjam!

"Reflections in Time", from "Mary's Song" album . . . I shared with you during the Easter season my song, "Reflections in Time", from my "Mary's Song" album. It is a song I wrote about Mary Magdalene and the emotions she had to have felt in the days leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. She was considered by many to be a disciple of Jesus. She followed Him, sat at His feet. It is said that after His death, she went on to establish over 700 churches, some of which may still be functioning today. Mary Magdalene spent a lot of time with Jesus during the years of His ministry on earth. And, I can only imagine the anguish she and the other disciples felt as He was led to the cross and crucified. She was one of those who stood at the … [Read more...]
