"Love Never Fails" Book

"Love Never Fails" is a testimony of love, encouragement and prayers for marriages threatened by adultery and divorce. As shattering as the threat of infidelity can be, God is able to do what He has promised, even resurrect from the dead! (Hebrews 11:17-19) These prayers are for those who sense that the Lord desires them to pray for the reconciliation of their marriage. Let's take the escape route of LOVE that God provides for us rather than allowing our enemy to complete his path of bitterness and hate. I challenge you to seek the Lord for a softened heart, and to pray and trust Him for a changed and repentant heart in your spouse. Remember Jesus' words, "...all things are possible with God!" (Mark 10:27) If you will be faithful to seek Him, He promises to reward you. (Hebrews 11: 6) God is love! (1 John 4:8) Whichever way our God leads you, know that He loves you, and has the best plan for your future...even eternity! "Love is patient, love is kind, love does not envy, love does not boast, it is not proud, love is not rude love is not self-seeking, love is not easily angered love keeps no record of wrongs, love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth, love always protects love always trusts, love always hopes, love always perseveres, Love Never Fails" 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Sweet Grace - recording notes

Recently recorded and mixed with a very strange approach to the arrangement. We added bits and pieces in Midi first then tracked them all out. In the end we have one Midi laying, 6 acoustic guitar parts, 2 electric guitar parts, piano, 3 tracks of strings, synth track, stereo Eventide track, MPC 2500, for Kick and snare. 3 tracks of live drums, bass, Sony V77 reverse guitar patch, 7 vocal tracks, and Altiverb EMT 250 reverb. All done in Protools LE with minimal plugins and ALOT of automation. I know it could be taken to a higher level, but Josi is satisfied and likes it how it is... Enjoy.. Dean
