And then my next realization...I've been playing violin for TWENTY years. Though my violin & I have had a tumultuous relationship (what 5 year old wants to practice 1 hour/day when all her friends are outside playing??), I will always love and cherish it. Since starting a new chapter in life this past fall, I knew my relationship with my violin would drastically change and I wouldn't get that much time with it. Thankfully, God has continued to open doors and give me ways to utilize this gift of music even with a crazy schedule and I hope to continue bringing Him glory with it and everything else I do.
One of my favorite open doors was the chance to record this song, "Watermark", with Sleeping At Last. He is an amazing musician and is also blessed with beautiful, poetic lyricism. Seriously, I wish I could write like him! Enjoy!
