A Year with Jesus—Day 9—Brown Eyed Girl

A Year with Jesus—Day 9—Brown Eyed Girl

Today’s reading invites us to recall a time when God’s presence was especially evident in your life.  I remember a time in the last few years when all of my family was at a wedding reception.  It was a beautiful setting and all of us were happy for the couple that we’d gotten to know fairly well.

It was during a time of dancing that all of my family was together watching others dance.  I had my arm around my wife Nikki and both of our kids snuggled close into us as we watched the bride and her father dance.   My eyes started leaking a little thinking about a day in the future where the little girl in front of me might be a bride and I’d be dancing with her.  (Emily, as you know I’d love to dance to Jimmy Buffett singing Brown Eyed Girl…)

It was a moment I’ll never forget.
