#614 I have something...

to share.

Last week my brother, Keith, called to say that he was going to be going to Florida to surprise his daughter. They haven't seen each other in over 30 years.

They are getting back together because Scottie was influenced by a Brandon Heath song, "I'm Not Who I Was". Due to that song she contacted her dad.

Scottie has been doing a lot of volunteer work for a local Christian radio station, JOY FM. She had mentioned to a friend, Carmen Brown, at the station that she hadn't seen her father in a long time. Carmen arranged for Scottie to meet Brandon. Carmen also arranged for Keith to Florida for father's day. Carmen told Scottie that she would arrange for Scottie to talk with Brandon. Unbeknownst to Scottie she would talk in person to Brandon and her father would be in Florida. The rest is history. You can watch the reunion right here.
