I never heard this album until about a year and a half ago, being familiar only with "Conversations" before that (which, to me, is perhaps my most favorite album by anyone, ever). Lyrically, and musically, I love it. I have all eight of Sara's CDs now, and like them all very much, but this one is probably my second favorite. Her originality, her song-writing genius, her earnestness, her honesty, her voice, her obvious love for Christ and for people, are very real, and very refreshing. Hard to pick a favorite ... Every Minute ... All Right Here ... Maybe Theres a Loving God ... Jesus, You're Beautiful ... (etc., etc.)
OK... this album is about a journey, a journey where we get to ride along with a wonderfully talented and gifted soul and experience her search and relate to it. It is one of my favorites of Sara's to this day.One of the things that struck me about this work is that I feel I can share it with people who don't really know the Lord. It is not so chock full of christianese that people who are without can't relate to it. My prayer is that more people, myself included, can write songs of such beauty and simplicity that convey the love of God through relationships in a transparent and vulnerable way so as to draw them into the mystery that is the love of God.
I love this album. Sara's voice and music go together soo well!! It is true that this album focuses on human relationship quite a bit, but God put us here to have relationships with other people, and Sara explains the beauty of these relationship, in a way that only a Christian could expierence them...so even though they are about relationships with people, I am thinking about God all during the album..GREAT ALBUM!!!!!!
I think this is a great CD BECAUSE Sara speaks not only about a relationship with God (You did that for me) (First song that I sing) but also about those way too common relationships we have with others! ("Fly", "You cannot lose my love", which by the way is as much a love song to us from God as it is from a parent to a child) There is nothing wrong with Christians talking about relationships with other human beings! Great job, Sara!
I have something to tell Joshua from Tulsa, Oklahoma. The reason they talk about their journey is because they are also singing about how God is always there for them and has helped them through their problems in their faith and life. They also sing about that because it lets others know that they are not the only ones that make those mistakes and that God will forgive them because He loves them. This CD is great! GOD BLESS!!<><
