He Remembers

E.M. 2018 Banner - Logo

Hi Friends,

I’m releasing a new single today called ‘He Remembers.’ It was written back in the spring of 2016 and was inspired by a quote from novelist Elise Wisel, ‘God is God because He remembers.’ A¬†free download is available at eddymann.com.

He remembers my first breath of air
He remembers because He was there
And still my Maker is with me everywhere
He remembers and He’s with me now

He remembers the first word I said
He remembers what I turned and fled
And still my Father never turned His head
He remembers and He’s with me now

He knows my pulse and the pulse of everything
Every moment ever lived and each created thing
He knows my name and the thoughts that cross my mind
He knows my heart, and the heart of all mankind

He remembers every tear I’ve sown
He remembers when I felt alone
And still my savior has never left me on my own
He remembers and He’s with me now
~ Eddy Mann

 February Notebook

Eddy-Mann-Logo-2L 850x850Well as January ends I’ve settled into my southern digs and have found a relaxed atmosphere to work and play. There’ll¬†continue to be¬†some new music appearing in the next few months as I’m just finishing up some mixing and art work. Inspiration is everywhere here so I don’t suspect that there’ll¬†be a slow down in the offerings.

Of note is that I just finished reading an interesting book called Jesus Asked by Conrad Gempf. It’s a relatively short read, but it opened up some interesting new images for me, like if Jesus were to meet you on the street today he’d be more¬†likely ask you something rather than tell you something. And in response¬†I’ve actually answered a few questions with questions of my own lately.

My newest ministry¬†Homeward Bound has been providing some energetic feedback which is encouraging. The spontaneity of it will take some time to get use¬†to, and the broad avenues of sharing will also be an adjustment to handle.¬†My hope was that this could reach many of you who are at a distance from me, and or¬†don’t have the means to participate at an event in person. It’s my prayer that the¬†live pop-up events will continue to grow in freedom and transparency. And yes, from time to time I may be able to invite some of you to be in house. So continue to keep an eye out on facebook, twitter and instagram as these events journey on.

A Glad New Year

E.M. 2018 Banner - Logo

Hi Friends,

I’m releasing a new single today called ‘A Glad New Year.’ It’s a re-imagining of a Martin Luther prayer written in 1535 called ‘Ah Dearest Jesus.’ At the moment it’s a free download available only at eddymann.com.

Ah, dearest Jesus, holy Child, make thee a bed, soft, undefiled
Within my heart, that it may be, a quiet chamber kept for Thee
My heart for very joy doth leap, my lips no more can silence keep
I too must sing, with joyful tongue, that sweetest ancient song
Glory to God in the highest heaven, who unto man His Son hath given
While angels sing with pious mirth, a glad new year to all the earth!
~ Martin Luther

 January Notebook

Eddy-Mann-Logo-2L 850x850I’m currently sojourning to my humble southern homestead. There I hope to read what I haven’t had time to read, listen to what I haven’t had time to listened to, and to create what I haven’t had time to create. Walking at sea level and breathing the fresh salt air has a way of inspiring me like no other place.

My creative calendar reveals that I’m about to begin a new ministry called Homeward Bound. I hope that this will reach so many of you who are at a distance from me, by using an internet platform. The plan is to have live pop-up events to talk, share and to worship. From time to time I may be able to invite some of you to be in house. So keep an eye out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as these events will vary in time and day.

Simple Things

f1e4b-back2bcover2bpic2b1a2bbanner

Hi Friends,

April, and it’s fools, are here like it or not. Are you one of those practical jokers? I’m not… usually, but I have had my foolish moments over the years. I do know that bringing a smile to someone’s face never grows old,¬†and inspiring laughter in an increasingly dark world always leaves me feeling good.

Solomon¬†wrote that, ‘a joyful heart is good medicine,’ and ‘a glad heart makes a cheerful face.’ That sounds simple doesn’t it? Think about that, it requires very little effort and it’s virtually free.¬†So as the first days of April arrive, let them be filled with smiles, laughter, joy and gladness. Let them deliver good medicine and cheerful faces.

¬†I’ve found that the simple things in life can be the most rewarding.

It’s my prayer this month that we can find the hidden happiness in the simple things in life, and that we can bring a smile to the faces we meet.

It’s my prayer that the world begins to find it’s way back to him, to allow his embrace to bring comfort, strength, and wisdom, and a vision of a peaceful, loving place to live… the spring of our content.

Call me, text me, tweet me, message me, email me, write me… we’ve been brought together by God for a reason.

The Spring of Our Content

f1e4b-back2bcover2bpic2b1a2bbanner

Hi Friends,

March is arriving as usual with the announcement of spring in a few weeks. As we continue through nature’s change of seasons, we are reminded that our journey is also one of change. The excitement of what lays ahead can be exhilarating or daunting depending on your view. One thing for sure, it will be arriving.

There have been many lives changed this past month by a world that is seemingly out of control, so I understand those who may harbor some concerns about what the future holds, but we don’t worship a far away God, we worship Emmanuel, a God who is with us at all times, a God that continues to embrace our world even as it falters and pushes him away.

There’s a peace in knowing that if you are in him, he remains in you, and that he has plans not only for you to succeed, but also to complete.

So as the month of March arrives, as spring begins to bloom around you, it’s also a perfect time for us to blossom in our relationship with him.

It’s my prayer that the world begins to find it’s way back to him, to allow his embrace to bring comfort, strength, and wisdom, and a vision of a peaceful, loving place to live… the spring of our content.

Call me, text me, tweet me, message me, email me, write me… we’ve been brought together by God for a reason.

Unbreakable

f1e4b-back2bcover2bpic2b1a2bbanner

Hi Friends,

I’m writing this from a barrier island in South Florida and can’t help but appreciate the blessings in my life. It’s amazing to me how we grow unaware of the grace that’s poured out into our lives everyday.

We live a life of blind abundance, surrounded by the most astonishing love.

This month is the seventh anniversary of a song that I wrote on Valentine’s Eve back in 2011. At the time my life was a collection of colliding calls. Musician, teacher, worship leader, coach, father, husband, son… the list was endless and so were my days.

It’s the only time in my twenty-seven plus years of marriage that I forgot, or rather put off, a Valentine’s gift. So as the hour drew late on that winter night I prayed for some divine help in creating something special for my wife.

Prayer led me to¬†Ecclesiastes 4:12¬†Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. Inspired by the verse I wrote the song Unbreakable. It may be the most loving gift that I ever gave my wife, and it God’s word that inspired it. In truth, it’s the reason that we have the marriage that we do.

My God, my wife, and myself
Together we’ve weathered whatever’s been dealt
Cause together we’re unbreakable ~ E.M.

Three’s not a crowd, it’s an unbreakable cord.

February Notebook

Eddy-Mann-Logo-2L 850x850February looks to be a pretty quiet month for me. At least that’s my plan. I’ve settled into a creative niche that allows me to read, write, and pray.

I’ve been ever mindful of recognizing how I need to re-energize, re-focus and re-charge both musically and spiritually.

Looking ahead a bit, only sparingly ūüôā …March 6, 2018 marks the Pre-Release date for my new album Simple Things. I’ve touched on this a little over the past year. It’s an album of songs that were inspired by Philly artist Thomas Eakins. The album will have a release date in early April and I’ll be back supporting it both solo and with the band come spring.

Another Trip Around the Sun

f1e4b-back2bcover2bpic2b1a2bbanner

Hi Friends,

Well here we go again, off on yet another trip around the sun. We make this trek year after year, time and again, and often it results in unrealized goals. That’s mostly because we create unrealistic expectations.

All this while we’re on the heels of celebrating the greatest gift ever. A gift that promises to lead us to a fruitful destination. And how will this happen, because he’s designed the perfect plan for us to succeed.

So maybe instead of coming up with our own promise to keep, we should just rely on the promise that has already been born and sacrificed for us.

My prayer is that we begin anew this year with a renewed dependency on His unfailing promise.

Call me, text me, tweet me, message me, email me, write me… we’ve been brought together by God for a reason.
