S.A.N.S. 173: The Next Time You See Johnny

 Kenny Marks is a popular Dutch born singer who is like the Kenny G of Christian music. I was introduced to Kenny by his hit song the Party’s Over. However, Kenny’s song writing ability kept me purchasing his albums through the years. I could have chosen from a number of hit songs, but one of my favorites is about a boy coping with his parents’ recent divorce.

And become useful and helpful and kind to one another, tenderhearted (compassionate, understanding, loving-hearted), forgiving one another [readily and freely], as God in Christ forgave you, Ephesians 4:32.

The Next Time You See Johnny is a prayer for boys who grow up without a father in their home. When the boy’s mother hears her son pray for his absent father, the lyrics stir my soul to compassion. Other Kenny Marks songs that may interest you are Graduation Day and White Dress. I hope the Next Time You See Johnny touches your heart like it has for me.
