“Two People Fell in Love”

The Cross and the Jukebox

Last week while traveling in my homeland of south Mississippi, I stopped off on my college campus, to look around at the old place and reminisce. A lot has changed since then. They’re tearing down my old dorm, and they’ve built a lot of impressive new buildings. But the classroom where I took biology is still the same. I walked into it and looked at the desk where I sat in 1992, where I made a decision.

In that class, that day, I decided to pursue a high school senior girl (I was only two years older, so it’s not as creepy as it sounds). I wrote a note, right there in that desk, and my entire life has been shaped by that five minute decision to ask my now-wife Maria if she’d go out with me.

I think about the seeming randomness of that decision a lot when I hear this song, Brad Paisley’s “Two People Fell in Love.” Today on “The Cross and the Jukebox,” we’ll listen to Brad sing and then look at God’s providence and how the little details are part of a big story.
