Morning Glory | Piano Instrumental [Episode 160, June 25, 2019]

“Morning Glory” – Solo Piano Instrumental Music for Quiet Time, Devotional, Prayer, Meditation, Soaking Worship, and Relaxation

I recorded this early on a Tuesday morning. My day had already gotten derailed when I woke up at 5:00 AM to join my brothers in our Tuesday F3 Workout. As I walked into the dark foyer of my home my big toe discovered a big guitar pedal board and amp that one of my kids decided to leave on the floor. Nothing on that pedal board seems to be sharp but I hit it just the right way and ripped a nice gash in the bottom and side of my big toe. Ouch. It didn’t take long for that to start throbbing so I skipped my workout and tried to get back to sleep.

Sleep evaded me so it was time to get started. I was able to come into my studio office, have a quick devotional, and record this piece. I decided on “Morning Glory” because I love sensing the glory of God’s peace in the early morning. As the sun was rising outside through the window of my studio, the melody in this song would rise.

I hope you enjoy it.

Still Small Voice | Piano Instrumental Music for Prayer & Worship [Episode 159, June 18, 2019]

Soothing Piano Instrumental Music for Prayer, Meditation, Soaking Worship, & Relaxation by Fred McKinnon, Pianist/Composer

This piece was inspired by a devotion that I read this morning. It reminded me of the importance of our ability to be able to discern and listen to that “still, small voice” that gives us direction.

So many things dull our ability to hear that still, small voice. Cares of this world, sin, selfish pursuits, and the noise of our society. One of the many reasons I create this podcast is to provide a little space – a niche, carved out of our chaotic world, where people can be still – even for a few minutes – to breathe, relax, and LISTEN.

I hope that you are able to hear that still, small voice today as you listen.

Thanks for your support!
Grace and peace,
Fred McKinnon

Morning Moments | Piano Instrumental Music [Episode 158, June 14, 2019]

Morning Moments – Peaceful, Soothing Solo Piano Instrumental Music

It’s Friday here on St. Simons Island, GA and the weather forecast suggests it’s going to be a little cooler today. By cooler, I mean mid 80s. That’s actually really nice.

I was up early and it’s a beautiful day outside. I took some time to just look out over the pool and the yard. The water is crystal clear, sparkling blue, and inviting. The birds are chirping and it’s not super hot. All together, it made for a nice morning moment.

Peaceful, unhurried mornings are one of my favorite experiences on the planet. A nice cup of coffee, an easy, relaxed time to get my thoughts together, have my devotion, and look ahead to the day – this makes me happy.

I hope you enjoy “Morning Moments” with me today. Take some time, even if it’s in the middle of your day or late in the evening, and slow down for a few minutes. Take some deep breaths. Close your eyes. Pray. Express gratitude. Relax.

Have a great weekend, friends!

Grace and peace,
Fred McKinnon, Pianist/Composer
