Biography

Wendysue Fluegge is a female Billy Joel... only she would rather laugh with BOTH the sinners and the saints. She is a story-teller, and Christian piano-pop musician. What you hear is professional instrumentation with her lovely, classically-trained voice. What you get is a down-to-earth performer with an out-of-this-world message.

The message is simple: Jesus saved you, and you respond. God gives sinners forgiveness and heaven through faith in Jesus, and out of thankfulness those saints can’t help but live with that eternal perspective on life . Wendysue likes to encourage her listeners this way: God uses everyday (ordinary) people to be everyday (not just Sunday) Christians.

Wendysue splits her time doing two types of events - worship services and Christian concerts. She has designed several contemporary worship services which teach on a specific theme. The service format contains a mix of Pastor’s devotions, solos, and congregation songs. Her concerts are less formal, with storytelling in word and song, a mix of original and familiar songs, and audience participation.

Since 1996, she has performed at over 200 churches, schools, and organizations in over 20 states. She continues an active ministry, making 30-40 appearances each year. She lives in Menomonee Falls, WI, with her husband Craig and two young children.

Lyrics

Father

Written By: Wendysue

You’ve never been much for emotional stuff as long as I’ve known you
A wise man of faith stepping up to the plate guiding your team through
Strong character integrity you have passed down to the sons that you had who are now husbands and dads
So proud to have you around

~~ Thank you for loving them father
Thank you for your faithfulness through the years
Thank you for leading them father
Teaching them strength through the laughter and tears
Though I was never a child on your knee
You’ve always been that kind of father to me

You learned all you knew from one wiser than you God the Almighty
He speaks through His word and I’m daily assured that he walks beside me
Each one of us he created he’d do anything for
Bless protect sacrifice saved us by his son’s life
Waits for us at heaven’s door

~~ ... I’m never more than a child on your knee
You’ll always be the best kind of father to me

~~ ... For every man with a child on his knee
Show them Oh Lord just what kind of father to be

Let Go

Written By: Wendysue

Lately I have been angry then I’m utterly sad
Constantly swallowed by these feeling of bad
I say I have Jesus I believe he can heal
Yet still I continue to feel how I feel
Like I’m going out of my mind I want to leave it behind

~~ I’ve got to let go I’ve got to accept
Deep down I know it would be best
I’ve got to move on I want to be glad
I want to revel in the blessings that I have
Don’t want to hold on I want to give it to God

The darkness can wrap me in a blanket of grief
I know only Jesus can give me relief
I keep giving it over come to find I’m still bound
I need to control so I carry my burdens around
And I struggle to break myself free
I want to lean on God’s peace
~~
My best intentions need his intervention
His plans for me are higher
Oh it is my desire to let go

I know of a woman life has been pretty hard
She hasn’t forgiven this world for its bruises and scars
Friends who betrayed her dreams that have died
Anger that threatens to push out the joy that’s inside
I hope one day she’ll be free just like me
We’ve got to lean on God’s peace
~~

Time

Written By: Wendysue

She’s got a list of things to do today how can she get it all accomplished with him running underfoot
He’s tugging on her sleeve something to say she heaves a sigh and thinks boy this better be good
With tears in his voice he gives her a choice

Can you make a little time for me
Mom please play with me a while
You have no idea how much it means to me
To feel your love and make you smile
In my little mind there’s nothing I want more than your time

He’s been working 80 hours a week to earn a big promotion that he’s wanted for so long
It’s so rare that he and his wife speak tonight she’s waiting at the door and he’s wondering what’s wrong
With tears in her voice she gives him a choice

Can you make a little time for me
Oh please stay with me a while
You have no idea how much you mean to me
I miss your love your touch your smile
In my fragile mind there’s nothing I need more than your time

She lives in a home just down the street widowed a long time they had no children of their own
She’s got 80 years of memories and a lovely garden that she tends most days she spends alone
Her silent voice whispering a choice

Can you make a little time for me
Oh please sit with me a while
You have no idea how much it’d mean to me if you'd pull up a chair and share a smile
In my lonely mind there’s nothing treasured more than your time

Many bear his name with hearts of faith live in peace and freedom only Jesus gives
He rescued us from sin and grave yet we forget how much we need him each moment that we live
Can you hear his voice calling out the choice

Can you make a little time for me
Oh please pray with me a while
I gave my life to show how much you mean to me
And you can lean on me through every trial
If your heart is mine I’m coming back again
And you’ll be where I am for all time
