This weekend my glimpse of God came from an unexpected source: my brother.
I was tasked with the responsibility of house/pet sitting for my family while they were away for a few days. This weekend also happened to be one where an ice storm was to hit the area, forcing us southerners to run for the bread and milk and batten down the hatches.
My brother, anticipating that I would not want to be alone, had his bags packed. He helped me take care of our four cats and he turned out to be the best company when it comes to simply chilling out. He could have been having fun in the snow with his college buddies, but instead, he chose to be cooped up in the house with his little sister.
As I observed his selflessness, I also noticed just how much God has worked in and through his life. I can see just how much he has changed over the years and how God has made him into a spiritual leader.
Spending quality time with him this weekend showed me that he has become not only a blessing, but an inspiration to me, and I can only pray that the girl who has the privilege of marrying him will look at him the same way.
