Sheep in My Head All Night

That’s right…I said, “sheep”, not “sleep.”  I did sleep, but mostly I heard a particular song that we recorded yesterday, “Sheep of Portmagee.”  Over and over and over.  It was like the soundtrack to my nighttime dream adventures.   🙂

Thanks for any of you who said some prayers…they helped alot!  We got all the scratch vocals and the piano & hammered dulcimer tracks recorded yesterday.  Today is the fun part, with the other musicians coming in…fiddle, tinwhistle & Irish flute, guitar, and bodhran.  I can’t wait to hear how much better the songs will sound once they’re layered in.

It’s like life…solo I’m ok, I’ll do, I can be a blessing if I’m not being lazy.  But when we work together as a group, as a team of people with the same mission and goal, it’s amazingly better, fuller, richer, and more productive.  I know I’ll come away from today being blessed by these other musicians, by their artistry, by their work ethic, and by their willingness to help with this project.

Have a wonderful day, whether solo or in a group.   🙂  Slainte, Lisa

Irish Air

I sing of the ocean wild and strong

I sing of the God who is stronger

The God who loves me through it all

And never leaves my side….

I sing of the beauty that He has made

I sing of His grace and mercy

The mercy that found me and saved my life

The mercy that set me free

Yes, He has set me free…

Going into the studio today…excited, nervous, both!  🙂  If you like to pray, please pray for me to feel God’s peace and to sing for Him.

Have a wonderful day!  Slainte, Lisa
