I'm writing this from a barrier island in South Florida and can't help but appreciate the blessings in my life. It's amazing to me how we grow unaware of the grace that's poured out into our lives everyday. We live a life of blind abundance, surrounded by the most astonishing love.
This month is the seventh anniversary of a song that I wrote on Valentine's Eve back in 2011. At the time my life was a collection of colliding calls. Musician, teacher, worship leader, coach, father, husband, son... the list was endless and so were my days.
It's the only time in my twenty-seven plus years of marriage that I forgot, or rather put off, a Valentine's gift. So as the hour drew late on that winter night I prayed for some divine help in creating something special for my wife.
