In our human experience, we all have moments of reflection and remembrance of the past as well as dreams and hopes for the future, but ultimately, the only time we have control over is the present. Today, sung by Julia Wade, is a gentle reminder that being mindful of the present gives us great strength, and peace. Starting with Mary Baker Eddy’s oft-repeated words from the Preface of Science & Health, Peter Link has expanded on this thought with additional lyrics, providing a lovely meditation on the here and now that serves as a perfect way to center yourself before starting your day. This song is from Julia’s album Solos, a ground-breaking 12-song recording of solos for church soloists and an international listening audience with lyrics from the prose writings of Mary Baker Eddy and music by Peter Link. This CD is a gift to the world-wide community of Inspirational seekers commemorating Julia Wade’s seven years as Soloist at the International Headquarters of the Christian Science church in Boston. Sheet music for this piece is also available, and can be found by clicking here.

"Brilliant! Julia Wade sings with true passion. 'Solos' classical arrangements compliment the soulful message of the album perfectly. Truly unique and beautiful representation of Mary Baker Eddy's writing." -Sean McGee
