Day 3 Begins

lis

This morning, June made a delicious breakfast casserole using her “farm-fresh” eggs (I believe the chickens’ names are Darth Vader Frog, Do, Re and Mi)

(William Walker, 1809-1875)Back in the studio, we jumped right in to What Wondrous Love is This? This old hymn can be traced back to the Appalachian Mountains at the turn of the 19th century. William Walker (1809-1875) was the first to include the song in his Southern Harmony and Musical Companion (1835). I love the lines -

What wondrous love is this
that caused the Lord of Bliss
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul?

Ryan and Brian’s arrangement is fresh and powerful adding a contemporary chorus that gives us the opportunity to celebrate the wondrous love of Christ. The strings are strikingly cool and sophistocated. I can’t wait for you to hear this song!

Right now, we’re working on the title track for the album - O For That Day. Ryan really outdid himself on this song. It’s a huge rock song that shouts about the day when we’ll be with the Savior forever. Just read the chorus -

O for that day when our journey has ended
All of our hope found in Heaven’s Reward
When we will have the Messiah forever
And we will dwell in the House of the Lord
Yes, we will dwell in the House of the Lord

Nate (4) came in to visit us and was very impressed by John’s voice and by pictures of Fritz on my MacBook.

    We are praying for you two with great expectations. Thanks for your tireless commitment to excellence and the application of your amazing talents for our Lord. I’m really jealous of you. Not because of anything to do with the music… Quit taking pictures and bring home some venison!!!! Rick
