Guest: Dee Brestin
Dee Brestin was grieving the death of her husband of 39 years and feeling abandoned when she was reminded of a significant moment while attempting to nurse her colicky baby boy. After kicking and crying for ten minutes, he would finally calm down and latch on. Dee realized that, like her colicky baby, there's no reason for any of us to throw a fit—because God is right there.
When Jesus walked the earth, He was full of surprises. He most certainly surprised Cleopas and his friend who were grieving Jesus’ death as they walked on the road to Emmaus. Dee Brestin, author of The Jesus Who Surprises: Opening Our Eyes to His Presence in All of Life and Scripture, is today's guest, and she notes that our focus on worldly troubles can often blind us to the fact that Jesus is near.
