Heaven



Yesterday my composer husband had a recording session with several vocalists, including songwriter, director, and producer. The film in process is a romantic comedy—a nation-wide motion picture. The song took most of the morning and afternoon to record. The style was GOSPEL. I write that BIG because WOW the vocalists were SPIRITED. One gentlemen stayed late to record the lead over the top. At dinner Tom told us about his day. He enjoyed working with the gentleman doing the lead. "I wish we could have just let him rip...but the songwriter kept saying, "No--the song goes THIS WAY." Tom said the vocalist had such spirit, it just about moved him to tears. "I felt like I was in heaven!"

So while this was going on, I was up on the roof. In the late afternoon the clouds were so AMAZING that I felt compelled to grab a ladder and my camera and climb up.I wondered what the clients would think about Tom's wife sitting on the roof. Well there was no time to worry about it, because the sky was changing so fast. I climbed up, and carefully crawled up to a comfortable spot near the peak, and watched the show. The beautiful cloud show put on by God himself.


I don't often sit on the roof, but I think I will return soon. It's a great place to gain some perspective...and it feels like a small vacation. Sort of like putting one's head into heaven for a little while.

These are beautiful pictures...it sounds like both you and your husband were able to experience a little bit of heaven!!! I would love to have heard the music, too!!!

I've missed stopping by...I am in the middle of setting up a new website for my cousin...

That was a beautiful sunset you got to see. I'm just glad I don't have to climb on my roof to catch ours.

Hi! great colors! It's not as cold as it looks here - just - bleak... Can't wait to have some sun on that snow.
Will try to take pics in a few weeks time - thanks for the idea!

If the songwriter isn't good enough to sing the song, he should let the singer "run" with it.

Lovely cloud photos. We had incredible clouds and colors at sunup this morning, but we had to go help my MIL, and didn't have the camera. Oh well.

Lovely photos! You have inspired me to make time (even a few moments) for those kinds of "mini-vacations"--just enjoying God's creation and receiving His refreshment for the rest of the day.
