Smiles in the Clouds is a nicer picture of the way God looks down at His children than what many people subconsciously submit to. I wrote this song in Nashville, Tn while recording my first album, but never tracked an album-worthy recording. I love this song and what it says about our Heavenly Father.

That's my beautiful wife, Julia!
Hope this track makes a day or two for the folks who hear it.
