Have you heard the expression ‘be careful what you wish for’? I don’t know about you, but there are times I need to be careful what I pray for!! When we pray it changes things… it changes things in the world outside and it changes things within us, even if we weren’t praying for something for ourselves. God is very mysterious and yet very cool in the way He works things!!
In 2010, after losing my beloved Glen to cancer, this Josh Wilson song resonated within me. I would hear it on the radio virtually every day in my to-and-fro-ing dropping the girls off at daycare or school, shopping, work, life… I lost my Glen… but
