Today was a day of the unexpected.

I showed up to renew some immigration papers, only to be told they were too busy.

I anticipated a quiet morning and afternoon of study for Sunday’s message, only to have the construction become deafening.

I expected a normal prayer meeting only to encounter tales of God’s gracious and sovereign hand at work in truly amazing ways.

I hoped for a quiet entrance at home to be instead greeted by a beautiful 5 year old far more concerned about being together than my perceived lack of productivity.

My day didn’t go as planned.  It was way better.
