My Girls

I'm not a particularly sentimental guy. In fact, I more often use the word as a term of disapproval.

Furthermore, I prefer to take off the cliche colored glasses in favor of a plain vision of what is there in all its splendor of particularity ("All things counter, original, spare, strange").

For those and other reasons, I am not a regular listener to Christian radio.

But for some reason, maybe because it was Sunday, maybe because Anna and I were alone together in the car our way to pick up doughnuts, I turned on KLUV this morning and this was the first song I heard, one that I had never heard before:

Let's just say that sometimes sentiment and cliche hit just the right note.

Though I once jokingly referred to my troop of girls as "the wrestling dynasty that could have been," the relationship expressed in this song is one I both cherish and look forward to.

You ought to listen to it along with his commentary. Joy posted it on her blog soon after the death of Stephen Curtis Chapman's daughter. As a mom of boys, this song makes ME cry. But, you know...I was a daughter.

There's nothing wrong with sentimentality. Your girls are priceless:
