the only question,
will we let
the healing power
of the risen Jesus
flow through us
to reach and touch others,
so that they may dream
where the brave dare not go?
The Furious Longing of God
Uncle Rob is pretty great. I think we can all agree.
When he carried Tucker way up high, Tuck insisted on holding on to Rob's face, cheeks, eyes, or chin. That's the only way he felt secure.
Uncle Rob had a few issues with this process: distraction, obstructed view, and occasional pain. Fair enough.
At one point, after peeling Tucker's hands off his eyelids one more time, Rob set Tuck down in front of him.
He knelt down and said gently, "Hey, Tuck? Have I ever, ever dropped you?"
"That's right. And I never, ever will."
It's true, Tuck. You can count on your Uncle Rob.
He hasn't ever let me down, either.
