Not too long ago, Jacob and I were visiting a very traditional church worship service. We started singing a nice familiar hymn....

"And He walks with me,
and he talks with me,
And He tells me I am his own
And the joy we share as we tarry there
No other has ever known."

About half way through the fourth chorus, Jacob leaned over to me and said "So, who is this Andy fellow?" ....
Being the extremely conservative and traditional church service that it was, It was essential that I hold back my laughter. I think I had to sit down in the pew to compose myself. The people behind us probably thought I was stifling a cry.  Now, every time I hear that song, I think of Andy.

Oh, I love those moments in life when laughter should be contained, but it refuses! It's good medicine.

I enjoy your stories, Annalise. Keep writing!

So, in CBS today, we sang that very song. I had this huge grin on my face the whole time. I think the worship leader thought that I was just really happy. What perfect timing.
