The Newest News. "But I Say Love" Spiritual Songs and Hymns.

I have struggled for decades with issues of faith and doubt. Despite deep frustration, even anger, I haven't been able to walk into a church service for nearly 10 years. I was hurt by people who didn't understand the physical vs spiritual battles I faced with bipolar disorder and also by God for what I think we all feel is a bit of a betrayal - not writing the truth in the sky for us all to see, heal us all, giving us all a sign we can't deny, not making it all simpler,  allowing for evil, Satan, and and so on.

But, over the years, my internal compass has started pointing me back to the place where my faith journey began. Now, I am beginning to "embrace the mystery" (But, I say Love). I sing these songs now, (which I couldn't have just a few years ago) not with assurance, but with actual faith and with deep gratitude. I am thankful for the gift of intuition, sensing, and feeling things that are True because God knew my weakness would be trust and needing proof .  After a time when He stepped back and allowed me to feel his absence, He is making Himself more tangible for me through progressively coming nearer so I can sense the difference. It is both a blessing and a curse to feel as deeply as I do. I feel overstimulated in this crazy world but also feel the energetic life force coming from a tree.  

The music flows from these depths. And the Holy Spirit within my fragile humanity still believes even when I am unable. He trusts on my behalf. And slowly but surely, like a frightened child, I am edging closer to faith's door. Not because I fear Him, but because I am learning I don't have to.  My prayer, practically on my face, a decade ago was for God to show me the truth so clearly and to please, please be so gentle with me that I would never be afraid to trust or unable to believe again.

 I wish you well on your faith journey. Don't rush. He's got you. I hope this music will comfort you as it does me. I hope "I Miss the Way" will break your heart like it does mine. And my most excited hope is that my own song, "But I Say Love"  will help you know that it's ok to not get it and that you will sigh a big sigh of release and PEACE.

Please share all of this with your friends, not for the sake of the music, but for the sake of healing and Light in the world today. 

I am proud to release a new Christian CD reminiscent of the days when my faith journey first began.

This is my adorable daughter, Ruthianne, now 18 years old. She made me so happy by joining me in the studio during her junior year of high school on this album! The three tracks with her are three of the very best!! Check out "For The Beauty of the Earth", "Tis So Sweet To Trust in Jesus" and "Holy Holy Holy". Our voices blended together like our spirits. I can't say enough about how proud her dad and I are of her and how wonderful she is!
