This is not the life I planned. I had heard Your ways are not our ways, but I really had no idea. The road I had hoped to be straight has been a crooked little path. The hopes and dreams of my youth have faded.
But, there is something now that remains, something truer about me. And about You. This is not the life I planned. Thank You for my life. (Excerpt from Touch of Wonder by John Blase)
