Dooo Waft


[waft, wahft] 
verb (used with object)
to carry lightly and smoothly through the air or over water: The gentle breeze wafted the sound of music to our ears.
to send or convey lightly, as if in flight: The actress wafted kisses to her admirers in the audience.
Obsolete . to signal to, summon, or direct by waving.
A song dedicated to the awesome group at my Wednesday night class at Waypoint Church.  I had never heard of the word waft that I know of...So the word worked into our conversation that night and Matthew mentioned I should write a song...The ideas began to perculate and I kept hearing a doo wop accapella type song...It took me back to the Huey Lewis and the News concert at Memorial Park this summer...Yes Huey...He's great- Come on how can you not sing Power of Love! His band sang an amazing accapella song that night. So here's the little ditty of Doo Waft.
Song to come...

Sitting at The Side Door Lounge with some friends...listening to music at an open mic night...inspiration...hence The Riddle.  I wanted to write a song that was personified.  Gavin DeGraw wrote an amazing song called Belief...not quite personified but I was thinking about the way the angle he wrote the song while coming up with these lyrics. 

Now I need inspiration for a melody...finally a melody came...

Riddle                         (Please reply if you have any guesses??)
Put down your binoculars
No need for a microscope
You don’t have to look for me
I blow in and out like a breeze
What do you think I am?
Nothing ever comes easy
How would you expect to grow
I’m here to break you down and build you up
Show you what you’re made of
What do you think I am?

I may try to test you
Will you make the grade?
Pass or fail.  It doesn’t matter
I’ll be back again
What do you think I am?

Song Called Lovely

This song simply came from a conversation with a friend who said that I like to use the word lovely...I love this word! It's feminine and yes I thought... I need to write a song with the word lovely in it.. and here's what spilled out. Little did I know the message was on God's heart knocking on my heart (and it's always on his heart because we've been created for His love) ..for me and you women out there (and yes for men, too- you can change the word to - well...macho, handsome, chivalrous, wonderful). It's true. He's furiously, crazy about us.. afterall he formed and fashioned us.  After watching a documentary called Furious Love, this song resonated even more.

I'm especially thinking about a few women I know who have had treatment for cancer...they are so beautiful and courageous.
