4th of July Parade1965

My friend Becky's Mom took us to downtown Atlanta to see the Parade. Handsome David McCallum was the star we longed to catch a glimpse of as he passed by in a convertible. He played the part of a spy on the popular new TV show The Man from U.N.C.L.E.  

Becky's little sister wrote a fan letter to McCallum afterwards that said. "I was the girl in the pink dress." Being older and wiser (?) we teased her about that and assured her he did not remember her outfit or even notice her in the throngs along Peachtree Street.

As I was reading Isaiah 49:15 this morning, I was humbled to think that the God of the universe knows us and sees us. His Word says He knows where we live. He knows our thoughts. He knows if our favorite color is pink. Sweet is His promise: Even if others forget - I will not forget you.

I remember him and the TV show. At that age and time, we were all fascinated by some actor on the TV. Isn't it crazy 1965 was fifty years ago in 2015? It flew by too fast.
