Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy

In a world where the astounding and extraordinary have become almost commonplace, where it is increasing rare to be really shocked by anything, it is still possible to be happily surprised by the unexpected. Last Saturday, Carole was showing me some new flowers she had planted along the back of the house. Most of them were still a little "dull" from their recent transplanting.
