Life is full of expectations – of hopes, wants, needs and more that we come to count on. But the way God works often disrupts our expectations, going far beyond anything we might, could or would dream of. The season of Lent moves us from winter to spring, and it shows us a way far more wonderful than anything we could imagine for ourselves.
