“For Whom My Soul Loveth”, a Forte Friday Post!

“For Whom My Soul Loveth” is one of the eight songs on my “Mary’s Song” album. The songs in this album musically protray the emotions of Mary Magdalene in the days leading up to the cruxification of Jesus. This song, "For Whom My Soul Loveth", reflects the searching for one who is gone, as He would be.  "For Whom My Soul Loveth" on the Top Ten List . . . again! Broadjam sent me an emails this week that my song, "For Whom My Soul Loveth", hit their Top Ten list for its genre, at #1! I was elated! Then it was in the #2 spot the two days following that, of which I am extremely grateful. I am always thrilled when one of my songs hits one of the charts in any place. It's humbling to know that people listen to my music and like it:) And, … [Read more...]

“Forever Yours”, from “Mary’s Song”, for Forte Friday

"Forever Yours" . . . the song in Mary's heart When you think of the words, "Forever Yours", what picture comes to your mind? The closing phrase of a love letter? A Valentine card? Or, does it bring to your mind the person who means the most to you. Maybe your husband or significant other. Perhaps it's a beloved grandparent or other loved one. Or, maybe it is your relationship with the Lord. "Forever Yours" with Him. Wow. When I wrote the songs to my "Mary's Song" album, it was to musically depict the emotions Mary Magdalene felt in the days leading up to the crucifixion. Joy, sadness, wonder, separation, longing. . . the more I wrote, the longer the list became. One thing I knew was that to Mary, she would always be "Forever Yours" to … [Read more...]

“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...]
