The name of the album is very symbolic and precious. Fire Lilies are among the first flowers to surface after a fynbos fire. They are the phoenix of flowers…a symbol of beauty rising from the ashes…this album is a declaration of victory, redemption and beauty restored. You can download the lyrics on the right. I’ve included a bit of background on each song for your interest.

Steady On

…I wrote this song during a difficult time…it is a message of encouragement and upliftment. Take it and run with it!
The first verse speaks of unburdening yourself and moving forward. It is also a call to be present and mindful …in His presence is fullness of joy, at His right hand are pleasures forevermore (Psalm 16:11). Being transformed by its’ renewal, your mind is set apart from the world and focused on following a star (pursuing the God-given dreams and desires of your heart). As you focus on the bright morning star and take delight in Him, He freely gives you those dreams and desires (Psalm 37:4).
The chorus speaks of staying in His presence (where you are strong and where you belong), to keep moving forward and fighting the good fight (1 Timothy 6:12), and to never tire of doing good (2 Thessalonians 3:13), because we are called to live by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7) – “there’s nothing wrong with wearing wings and wanting things that you can’t see”
The second verse is an encouragement to speak things out and lay things down that keep you in bondage, to bring everything into the light so that you can know the truth and be set FREE (John 8:32). The sparkle in your eye is the joy and life that comes from slamming doors on lies, unbelief and darkness, and standing firm and confident in Him and your identity in Him because you’ve taken time to “fall into the sky” (surrender in and to His presence).

Hebrews 12:1 is also a good reference for this song. Enjoy…

Lion and the Lamb

…This is one of my favourite songs. The beginning is a call to worship and surrender…surrendering to His presence where His love is both fierce and gentle and we are at rest (Lay me down with the Lion & the Lamb). The upbeat bit would be the result of time spent in that presence where there is fullness of joy and we regain our strength to get up and fight again. It is also a declaration of not being satisfied with mediocrity and complacency and that there is an urgency to move out of double mindedness. ..

Adrian’s Song

…The music for this song was composed by a friend of mine, Adrian Rogowski. He came up with the riff and I got a lyrics download shortly after. It’s really just a call to becoming childlike and soft in our romantic relationships again, to return to the beauty and simplicity of a “first love” experience and to replace cynicism with hope, excitement and expectancy.
The chorus is an expression of my joy in having found that kind of love after having almost given up hope in ever finding it.
My favourite lines in the songs are “Cos love’s Heaven sent and I’m bent on being loved like Helen of Troy” – I believe the desire to play the leading lady in an epic adventure love story is a common theme in the hearts of women. 
“These battle scars have touched the stars, I’m calling on a new day” speaks of personal wounding in the realm of romantic relationship and that my healing and redemption have come through a touch from Heaven…“He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things NEW”

(Revelation 21:5)…
