This post from Scott Sauls is very nearly something I could have written. Like Scott, I have two daughters and like him, I would like to give God some pointed advice on how to write their stories. And yet, being a few years ahead of him (at least as far as the age of my daughters) I begin to see the benefits of some of the more challenging turns their stories have taken.
And of course, like Scott, I'm bursting-at-the-seams proud of my daughters.
If you're a parent, this is just such a good reminder of the long-term goodness and wisdom of God. Trust him.
