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.
Call me, text me, tweet me, message me, email me, write me… we’ve been brought together by God for a reason.
As always, remember you can send an anonymous email to firstname.lastname@example.org for prayers and encouragement.
February 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 🙂 …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.
