Starting is fun. Sticking with it isn't always fun. As I knew would happen, my SOS has been interrupted a bit these first couple of weeks. Projects needed finishing. Kids need their mom. Cars break down. Life happens. But none of it was a surprise to God so I'm choosing to see these interruptions as inspiration and roll with it as best I can.
I'm two weeks into this adventure and all in all, it's been great. I've spent much of the last week finishing up a VBS project. Today I head into the studio to see a new kids musical come to life. Songs have been started. Others finished. Ideas have been flowing and for that I'm grateful. That doesn't always happen, but it's something I've prayed for and those prayers have been answered. I may not like how life provides some of those ideas but still...grateful.
I'm hoping to post song titles and maybe even a work tape or two for you to hear the fruit of this labor so far. I'm as just as fascinated by the process of writing songs as I am the songs that are born as a result of that process, so I hope you'll enjoy a sneak peak at some of what's been happening.
For those of you participating in your own summer adventure, I hope you are pressing on, even when things get tough. I'm right there with ya. And I'm believing it's worth it. I hope you are too.
