If the stars don't shine, God is the guiding light. If the ocean fails to come home to the shore, God has a plan. If the sun ceases to rise and fall, God's love prevails. And if a child is born among the weeds and thorns of alcoholism, God can make the garden beautiful. Through all the chaos and confusion of life, His promise of "I will never leave you or forsake you" holds true. This book is a collection of creative writings, cartoons, and inspirational insights that journeys the author's life from toddler to present. The prevailing theme is that God is in control and showers His children with daily encouragements to love one another as He has loved us. This reminder may come from the gentleness of moonlit snowfall or the comprehension of an autistic child-but it is the great commission carried out from the broken and softened hearts of His children.
