ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
TYPICAL OF THIS AMAZING AND SOMETIMES SAD AND TRAGIC THING
WE CALL LIFE, MY MOM CALLED ME AND IN THE CONVERSATION I
LEARNED ONE OF THE GREATEST GOLFERS AROUND THE BIRMINGHAM
AREA HAD ENDED HIS OWN LIFE. I NEVER WAS GOOD ENOUGH OR
FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO COMPETE OR PLAY WITH THIS MAN, BUT I
KNEW HIM AND THOUGHT THE WORLD OF HIM. MOM AND I ENDED
THE CALL, AND I, HAVING BEEN LAZY ABOUT THE OLD YARD WORK,
HAD A LOT TO DO. ALL THE TIME I WAS SWEATING AND BREATHING
HARD DOING THE THINGS I SHOULD HAVE DONE WEEKS BEFORE, I
COULDN'T STOP THINKING ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED.

AFTER ABOUT TWENTY MOUNTAIN DEWS, WATER, AND LOTS OF COFFEE,
I STARTED PUTTING TWO AND TWO TOGETHER AND CAME UP WITH THIS
SYNOPSIS: THE DEVIL IS AFTER US ALL, AND HE COMES AS A ROARING LION,
DEVOURING WHOM HE MAY, OR HE COMES AS A SUBTLE SERPENT SENSING
HIS TIME TO STRIKE. YOU SAY TO YOURSELF, WHAT IS THIS GUY TALKING
ABOUT? WELL HERE'S THE THING, NEVER TAKE YOUR EYES OFF JESUS,
STAY STRONG SPIRITUALLY, BECAUSE FROM EXPERIENCE I CAN TELL
YOU THAT WHEN YOU'RE AT YOUR LOWEST, SATAN'S COMING. IF YOU
ARE NOT GROUNDED IN THE TEACHINGS OF JESUS AND HIS WORD, GOD
AND GOD ALONE IS THE ONLY THING THAT WILL RESCUE YOU. I ALWAYS
THOUGHT I WAS BULLET PROOF, BUT I LEARNED THAT IS FAR FROM THE
TRUTH. LIFE CAN SWING SO DRASTICALLY IT WILL UP END YOU. YOU
FIND YOURSELF ON A CLIFF READY TO JUMP!!!! YOU WONDER, HOW DID
I GET HERE, YOU'RE ALMOST EMBARRASSED FROM A LACK OF KNOWING
WHAT TO DO, YOU DON'T CALL ANYONE, BECAUSE YOU'RE AFRAID THEY
MIGHT SEE AND SAY YOU'RE WEAK. MAYBE IT'S PRIDE, BUT THAT'S WHAT
HAPPENED TO ME. THAT'S KIND OF THE WAY I FELT. I HAD FRIENDS
BANGING ON MY DOOR PUTTING NOTES SAYING WE ARE WORRIED ABOUT
ME. WHERE THE HECK ARE YOU. I WAS INSIDE SHAKING IN A CORNER
ABOUT TO GO BATS.

ANYWAY, I CAME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT WHAT HAPPENED TO THIS
PARTICULAR MAN IS THAT HE HAD PUT HIS WHOLE LIFE INTO GOLF.
DID NOTHING ELSE. HE NEVER TURNED PRO. HE JUST LOVED GOLF.
PLAYED ALL THE TIME. WELL, IT SOUNDS GREAT. I'D LOVE TO HAVE
BEEN ABLE TO DO MUSIC TWNETY FOUR HOURS, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK
BUT I COULDN'T. I HAD SIX BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN THAT I HAD TO
SUPPORT, ALONG WITH TWO ANGRY WIVES. NOT EASY. MORAL OF THE
STORY, BALANCE IS THE KEY TO LIFE. GOD SAYS IT, I BELEIVE IT.
WHATEVER IT IS YOU DO, DO 300% TO THE GLORY OF GOD, BUT TAKE
TIME TO BE A HUSBAND, FATHER, AND HUMAN BEING. YOU NEVER
KNOW WHEN A PARTICULAR CAREER WILL END. BE STRONG IN YOUR
FAITH IN GOD, YOU'RE READY FOR ANYTHING. BUT KNOW THIS ALSO,
EVIL EYES ARE ALWAYS SET ON YOU WAITING FOR THE MOMENT TO
TAKE YOU OUT OF HERE. DON'T GIVE EM THAT OPPORTUNITY. STAY
ON THE SIDE OF THE MIGHTY THREE. ALWAYS. THE MOST IMPORTANT
THING YOU'LL EVER DO IS MAKE JESUS YOUR COMMANDER. DON'T
FORGET IT. WITHOUT JESUS IN YOUR SHIP TANK OR PLANE, YOU GOTTA
BE CRAZY, COMPLETELY INSANE.

ANYWAY, THE ALBUM WAS WRITTEN AFTER THE PHONE CALL AND
FROM WRITING, RECORDING, AND PAPERWORK, TOOK ABOUT A WEEK.
OVERALL, I THINK IT'S ABOUT REDEMPTION. JESUS AND THE REDEEMING
POWER OF HIS BLOOD. KEEPS FLOWING. GOD'S ALWAYS REACHING
OUT TO US ALL. WITHOUT THE MIGHTY THREE, WE'RE SUNK.; IE, GOD,
JESUS, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT. ALSO, MY ANNOUNCEMENT TO THIS WORLD
THAT THE OLD ME IS DEAD. FROM THIS TIME FORTH, I'M A PREACHER MAN.
THAT'S WHAT I AM. THE OLD ME IS DEAD. MAY HE REST IN PEACE.!!!!!
