An open window

My father passed away on July 26. I didn’t have a relationship with him really. But the loss is still there. I would have liked to know him more, do more with him but unfortunately I did not have the opportunity. From what I was told however, he had made some major changes and had wanted to build the relationship he never had with me and his other children.

I am incredible grateful though that the few steps he did take allowed me to know a family I had not known before. And  now I have uncles and aunts, cousins, a grandmother – and siblings.

As with life often when one door closes, God opens a window. I am grateful. Although we may not always see the reason for a loss, we can trust that God knows – and that He has a plan to use it for our good (Romans 8:28).
