The Elwins & Luke Lalonde – Countdown

“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:9)

I walked between a couple of highway overpasses, traffic racing north on one, and south on the other. The night seemed to still except for my unsettling thoughts and trudging feet. Together the bridges fit the sky into a frame above me. I quietly admitted to myself that these ancient words are still true – even here, even now. And then, relief and  gratitude rushed in, because there is more to the story I have not yet heard.
