Mysterious Ways

     There is evidence of God’s love all around us, we just need to recognize
it. A stranger’s all-too-perfectly timed random act of kindness. A deceased
     loved one who appears to you in a dream just when you need her most. A
     delayed flight that leads to an unexpected family reunion.

     These events are more than mere coincidences. They are proof that
     God’s love, God’s grace and God’s mercy are indeed revealed in
      Mysterious Ways.
