I was out for a bike ride a couple of days ago listening to some music. Pretty normal activities for me; but a song caught my attention. In the aftermath of Carter’s death we kept praying, wishing and hoping for beauty from ashes. And it occurred to me, “we’re there.” We are now enjoying the fulfillment of those prayers, wishes and hopes and I am so thankful for that. At times it didn’t feel like it would happen; it’s just another instance when our timing doesn’t necessarily align with God’s.
