And as sad as I am at the thought of missing Jane in the months ahead, the writer in me is grateful that her books will live on. She has a new one coming out this summer, All the Tea in China, and I know you’d love it. I read the manuscript and found it delightful. It’s available to preorder now.
It’s easy to praise God when He answers prayer in the way we want him to. It’s harder–but just as necessary and proper–to praise him when he answers in a way we didn’t expect. So I am praising the Lord for his wisdom, for his faithfulness, and for the fact that he welcomed Jane this morning.
