It’s no lie to say this year has been nothing short of astounding. I just played my last show of 2012 in Seattle, and having been around the globe twice in the past six months, it’s hard to describe how blessed I feel to be here. And not simply being here — after months upon months of touring, feeling overjoyed to be doing what I get to do — I feel blessed to be alive. Thank you for paying attention to what I do and the parts of my heart and soul that are tangible via my music. Not only am I grateful beyond words for your thoughtfulness and support, I am fortunate in so many more ways than even I realize. Submerged in a world industry designed to portray an artist with a career as “being all about me,” the more I do this, the more I pray for the grace required to be in a world and not of it, it’s painfully clear that this is NOT all about me. It’s about so much more than I am as a human being who works hard and happens to enjoy art in the form of music. It’s about reaching out, loving people, and ultimately being a reflection of light — or by definition, to embody and represent something in a faithful way… So this is me sincerely saying thank you. All praise and glory to God, to whom I owe everything.
