May 15th 2002: Change can be stressful for us all. No matter how we experience it, good or bad, change will happen. We all are sharing the change of seasons and we can see it all around us.

Watching the beauty of the trees blooming and the grass getting greener, I'm reminded of how it seemed like only yesterday that I was writing in my journal about the tree blooming outside my little kitchen window. I also wrote about my involvement in the DOVE AWARDS and how I was still reeling from the excitement of it all.

This year was different. I watched it on TV and was kind of glad that I didn't have to worry about what I would wear. I watched comfortably in my sweats and thought it was a great show. I've been traveling so much visiting churches and have been in the studio working on a new CD so the extra pressure was something I could live without this year.

I have been in the process of moving my office to my house. I think I like working from home if I could just ignore the dust on the furniture and the floors that need mopping. My hope is that this change will give me more of a focus on my songwriting and strengthen the relationship I have with churches. I pray everyday for wisdom . I'm reading in Proverbs right now and I clearly see that God has a definite opinion on how I use my time and my life. I realize that our time here on this earth is so limited. I pray that I am making the most out of the time I have to share the life of Christ.

The process of making a new CD is a stressful change for any artist. It can make you very nervous. I like the sound and feel of my first CD. I've heard very precious responses to those songs. I want the new music to be just as much a blessing to those who hear them. God has been at work in my life and He has given me the opportunity to share that with you through my new music. I can't wait to hear about how it makes people feel. Keep me in your prayers.

Seasons, people, and life are bound to change, but the one person that never does, is my savior Jesus. He is my constant, He is my comfort and He is my peace when I feel a little apprehensive. No matter what changes in my life, or when people come and go, He never will. Through him we find the peace He talks about and the abundant life. As long as I commit all my ways to Him, change can be plain ole exciting!
