Draw Me Closer

I wrote this song when I was home a few weeks ago when my grandfather, or Bubba as the family calls him, was in the hospital. The verses came in the long drives, the chorus I wrote in the hospital chapel right after I said goodbye before leaving to come back to Indiana. I've been sharing it ever since.... like at the Eat, Preach, and Praise Dinner as a part of the Indiana Annual Conference last week. What an honor to hop up in between brilliant preachers, some of whom I now call friends, and share a couple of songs. I just spoke with my mom, Bubba is tired. He knows he's not going to get better. He's trying to say goodbye. My heart aches. It's hard to know if he is sensing changes in his body, if he just wants to say things while he is mentally aware, or if his spirits have hit a low point. Please join me in praying for Bubba, in praying for my family. That we would be drawn closer.
