Whats Going on in the Life of the Ward's
This Blog is my quarterly update's on what's happening in our life
The Pinkston's living and dining room was transformed into a studio. Recording microphones everywhere with instruments set up in different places, and few chairs lining the walls. Around 6:15 we did a sound check and a few people started arriving. The Pinkston's invited about 20 people who could sing and enter into His presence to come and be apart. Some I knew better then other's but we all squeezed in and soon realized that the temperature in the room was close to unbearable, but there was nothing we could do about it. All doors and windows had to be shut, all fans had to be off, but everyone stayed and pressed in. Around 7:15 pm we prayed and began to worship. I thought to myself "no matter what happens tonight, the Lord will be Glorified" and He was. I can not think of a better way to start but in a living room with band made up of some of our best friends.
The first round we sang about his Holiness and I got used to the room and the flow. With the heat escalating we took a break before round 2. It was becoming obvious that there needed to be a change in direction so Michael and Angela who know me so well realized we needed to worship with a song and then flow from there. We did that with the a violin and Cello starting us out, and that alone was amazing. (I had only had the strings for last night, I wish I had it for the rest of recording but it was fun while I had it).
One more break and one more round. When the whole room entered into to singing chorus's it was amazing. We are not sure if we got anything that we will keep, but it was a great experiment and a lot of fun. Heaven was here for sure and Jesus was glorified.
With one night down and two more to go there is some nervousness of "will we get enough for an album", but I am continuing to lean into the grace of the Lord and engage faith. The Lord would have not made a way for this to happen if He did not have something to give me!!!
So right now we are breaking down the living room and heading over to the church and set it up for the next two sessions of the recording. Tonight we practice and tomorrow evening we record again.
For all of you who are reading this please be praying for me!!!! We are attempting to do this recording in a way that is not usually done with me being a spontanious/prophetic singer. I don't have anything to sing unless the Lord gives it to me in the moment and there are so many components that have to come together. Come on God!!!!!!
