Testify to Hope

My 13 year old is perched on her chair, feet curled under her as she is most comfortable.  "Mom, are you ready to see it now?"  I turn to face the computer screen, grading of today's assignments finally complete, "Yes." I assert with a smile.

She navigates to God Tube where she has had a video waiting to show me.  I groan inward; she is in the habit of watching silly animal videos on this Internet 'chanel' and all I can think is, this is just another one (only this one is SIX minutes long.)

It isn't animals though, it is Aaron Shust talking about his new album.  She and I are often interested in the stories behind the songs we love, so I lean in to listen closely.
