But sometimes things work out not as we want them to, but mysteriously much, much better.

I was over at Martha House Sunday night and Anita said we should learn that song for Bible class. I thought so, too, and wanted to get a jump up on it by introducing it Monday for chorus, but we know where that plan led.
So after I worked on the web site today I took a few minutes to see if I could manage to get the song onto a disc. Marci had some spare blanks, so I ran down to pick a couple up and sure enough, five minutes later I had my song.
I called Anita and she said come on down, so I showed up for Bible study this afternoon in the Pavilion.
There were several people there already but more kept filtering in until a majority of the Ranchers were present. Anita read the lesson for the day, which had to do with faithfulness in small things.

We discussed the Bible lesson for a while and then put on the song.
Most of the residents were familiar with it and began singing right away. A few Ranchers stood up and began signing the words. Soon another few went over and picked up the prayer flags and began to wave them to the music.
Nothing would do when it was over but to play it again. It was a joyful experience.

And I knew that song had been meant all along right for today at 2:45 PM, and not a moment before.
