Playing Your Heart Out, Even If No-One’s Listening


As a musician, it’s sometimes hard to perform your best when no one seems to be enjoying it.  But yet, some of my best times playing music are when it’s just me and God, the stillness of a room, the banging of the piano keys, the not worrying about the performance, just talking in the best way I can to Jesus.  To me, the best music is that way….a heartfelt conversation, a pouring out of emotion and feeling and angst and joy and whatever else makes up these human hearts that we have.  And all of that is not dependent on crowds or audiences or attention.  The One who made us is always listening, always attentive, always ready to hear what we are saying or trying to say.  Thank you God.  Blessings, Lisa

A Reason To Sing


“If you’ve got nothing to dance about, find a reason to sing.”   ~Melody Carstairs

“Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it.” ~Helen Keller

“Do not stop thinking of life as an adventure. You have no security unless you can live bravely, excitingly, imaginatively; unless you can choose a challenge instead of competence.” ~Eleanor Roosevelt

“In this world you will have trouble, but take heart! I have overcome the world.”  ~Jesus, Matthew 16:33

The Lonely Microphones


Microphones are amazing; they amplify, they enhance, they enrich.  Yet without the sound, the voice; they are simply waiting.  Waiting for the person, the instrument, the sound, the vibrations to enter in and make the magic.  Hopefully these mics won’t have to wait too long.  🙂

Sing a new and happy song on your Wednesday; with or without your mic, God will love it!  🙂  Slainte, Lisa

Mountain in Song

Killarney Lake

“Shout for joy, O heavens; rejoice, O earth;  burst into song, O mountains!  For the Lord comforts his people and will have compassion.”  ~Isaiah 49:13

What is singing in your corner of the world this morning?  Maybe the tree that is using red, orange, and yellow as his notes of song.  Maybe the green grass under your feet is shouting, “Glorious day!”  Maybe the sky and the clouds are playing with blues and whites and grays, creating a beautiful artwork of this very moment.  Go ahead and add to their beauty with a song or big shout of your own!   Slainte, Lisa
