During Brandon’s CD Release Party last night, I enjoyed:

  • the worship — especially how Brandon ended our evening together. Powerful!
  • laughter with friends of almost twenty years. The husband braved many a day on the b-ball courts mentoring Brandon as a teen.
  • sitting next to my cousin, who’s always been more like a sister, and watching her hubby post B’s pics on Facebook. The fact they drove from Spartanburg meant even more.
  • peering over to see the blossoming “friendship” between two young people. He’s been a tremendous friend to Brandon over the years and she’s the daughter to two special friends of ours.
  • meeting the wife of an amazing young man, who lost both parents by the time he was in his early twenties.
  • a sweet time of fellowship with my mom and her incredi-hubby, Steve, who could be the poster-child for step-parenting.
  • observing a local FCA group worship — and chatting with one of their leaders, the daughter of a dear friend. She didn’t realize that Brandon was in fact “my” Brandon.
  • hanging out with two great friends, who just happen to be Piper’s other grandparents. 🙂

As Brandon played my favorite song from his CD, Surrounded, I marveled at the relationships and connections represented in the room, very much aware of God’s abiding presence surrounding us as one—and grateful for every moment.
