Just a Moment

"Enter With Boldness" Watercolor © Gwen Mehard

I was sitting at the piano practicing one day and it was almost time for us to leave the house. I can't remember exactly where it was we were going.. some sort of errand.

My wife called from the kitchen, "We're leaving in five minutes."

Right at that instant, I heard this piece in my head... I called back, "Just a moment."

I had to act fast, I knew if I didn't record it at once, I would probably lose exactly what I was feeling.

I flipped on the recorder, and started playing...

...right as I finished the last note, I looked up, she had our son, and was ready to roll.

I flipped off the recorder and followed her out the door.


Do I feel over-scheduled and cramped for time? Sure. But I choose not to back down. If it requires a boldness in the way that I am, then so be it. Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world.

Please take a moment to listen to this small tribute.
