As I watched Ian, our sound tech drive away from the church tonight after recording our choir for the last time; I was reminded of how good our God is. You see, the last song, or bit recorded, was the duet of We Will Remember. What a tribute to His Almighty Power and Glory; for me personally to have that song as my last impression of our experience recording here at the church. Those lyrics resound so true...with precious blood You showed us Your grace...I still remember the day You saved me, the day I heard You call out my name...Thank You Lord for saving me and allowing me the opportunity to be used of You. Please instill in me the desire to remember, always, Your wonderful and loving works.
Choir, I praise the Lord for your faithfulness and love of music. It is truly evident as I heard back the songs recorded for this project. Remember what He has done for you; what He continues to do for you, and what He will and has promised to do for you tomorrow.
May the Lord richly bless you and keep you.
A Great Night!

Well, we recorded with our youth ensemble tonight. What a blessing!! The twenty that were there did a fantastic job. The sound was wonderful, the energy high and the spirit sweet.
Now for our last hurrah. Tomorrow night, Tuesday June 16, 2009 at 6:50pm our adult choir will be putting the final touches on two and a half songs. Yes, that's right two and a half. The half, well, let's just say it was the director's fault. Thank you choir for all your hard work and willingness.
Praise the Lord for His mercy endureth forever.
The End Is in Sight!

Coming home Monday night from Southern Sound Studios, I began reflecting on the past several weeks of recording sessions. I am so thankful for a willing choir. Sunday afternoon recording sessions are NOT fun when your used to taking a nap, spending time with family or just relaxing in the easy chair. Well I could not be more proud of our choir members. Most came early and with smiles on their faces ready for work. Because of that selfless labor, we have successfully recorded eight of the ten songs for the CD. Only one more session to go. This Tuesday night will be the last needed to complete this project. Thanks to all who have sacrificed their time. Lord bless you for, what I believe, is a true labor of love.

Well, our first choir recording is underway. I must tell you it has been quite the experience. Enjoyable yes, but also very...well, let's just say interesting. Having recorded myself as a participant many years ago; I never fully understood the importance of getting those crazy 'cut offs' just right, and I never really cared all that much about that silly stuff called 'diction.' Well now that I am the one directing a great group of vocalists; I AM very interested to say the least in those tiny details. This whole experience, thus far, has been extremely enjoyable. Even the little mistakes made in our first session last Saturday. I have already begun a bloopers track for some time in the future.
At any rate, the psalmist David, who knew quite a bit about the importance of music had this to say in Psalm 57:7-11: "My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise. Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp; I myself will awake early. I will praise Thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto Thee among the nations. For Thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and Thy truth unto the clouds. Be Thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: let Thy glory be above all the earth." As I direct our choir, and as you sing; I pray that our goal and driving force will be to act upon the message in these verses. First, we must remember to whom we are singing, and why we are singing. This must be our first objective, to give honor and praise to our Maker. Secondly, we must recite our testimony to those around us with a passion far exceeding the pleasures of this world. We have the opportunity to be Christ's 'mouthpiece' in this day. The message in song that we sing, must glorify God, edify the Saints, and be used as a tool of evangelism.
After our CD if finished, and we are 'sung out;' what will we take home with us? Well yes, you'll have a CD. But what will we have learned?.....I trust and pray we will have a better understanding of what it means to give Him praise, to have more confidence to proclaim Him to those around us.
Just thoughts I that I've been pondering.
