Hey, friends. You're getting a short post from me today and you may not see anything more from me this week. My revisions are due Friday, and I have far, far to go.
Do you know what one of the absolute best things about being a writer is, especially in the age of web sites, blogs, and Facebook? Friends like you. People I never would have met (in person or virtually) if I wasn't writing books. People like the authors I blog with on Writes of Passage. How precious you/they all are to me. Truly, truly precious.
Three years ago, I "met" (via email) a beautiful woman named Robin Lees. She's a talented musician and a committed follower and worshiper of Jesus. It was the similarity in our names that brought about the connection. Robin followed my writing for a time and then wrote to me. We even tossed around the idea of doing some sort of joint project together, if the Lord wills. Who knows? In His timing … if He wills it.
Anyway, Robin has a new music video that I want to share with you. The song is called Beauty Itself. Here's something she wrote about it on her web site:
A.W. Tozer puts it this way in his book, "The Divine Conquest"…..Man by reason cannot know God; he can only know 'about' God.
When I wrote the song, BEAUTY ITSELF, I was in the place of prayer … talking to God … I began to worship Him and then … He answered, the voice of heaven! Everything! … every answer, every direction, every hope, yes … every "Divine Conquest!" He becomes to me, BEAUTY ITSELF! He becomes the Daring Divine … dare we trust Him in everything … when we do … Heaven's voice becomes the joyous sound to my ears! Let Him be the voice of love, friendship, hope and direction in your life. He gave us everything, his name is JESUS!
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did when I first heard it. And I pray that each and everyone of you has a blessed Holy Week and a glorious Easter. Rejoice, for He is risen! He is risen, indeed!
