A FEW YEARS AGO – actually, it was over 40 years ago, but the older I get “ain’t it funny how time slips away.” So, over 40 years ago I went to Los Angeles, maybe Costa Mesa, to a wedding; a small one. Pat and Debbie Boone were there. Pat’s secretary was getting married. No huge pipe organ. No big choir. No marching down the aisle. No train following the bride. Suddenly, but softly Pat and Debbie began to sing,
“Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place.
I can feel His mighty power and His grace.
I can hear the brush of angels wings.
I see glory on each face.
Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place.”
There were no strobe lights, no acid rock music, and no blonde bombshells prancing across a stage yelling into the mike. But guess what? The Holy Spirit showed up. Some may not understand the metaphor, but all of us there that day heard the flutter of angels wings.
