One of my church’s former pastors and later chaplain of the United States Senate, Dr. Richard Halverson, formed a beautiful benediction that started, “You go nowhere by accident.

About Laura Morgan
Laura’s first love is God, then people, and mashed potatoes and otters follow close behind. Just months after completing a master’s in Speech Pathology, Laura was a passenger in a near fatal car accident. The crash had a profound impact on her life, but not in her trust of God’s good character and His sovereignty. She values the unique opportunities the accident has provided for sharing her faith, and also enjoys being outdoors, pencil drawing and playing stringed instruments.

Title: The Fig Tree Materials: Watercolor Artwork by: Laura Morgan Description: I hardly ever have reason to fly without familiar companions, so before my flight home from Texas–where I was visiting friends–I prayed that God would bless the interactions with my seatmates. God answered that request in an unforgettable way. During my flight from Texas, the young man […]
Due to injuries resulting from a major car accident which left me bed-bound, I have ample personal experience knowing that asking for help is not an easy thing to do.
For most of my life, Good Friday primarily served as a heads-up for a nice candy-gorge. I glossed over what it really represented, anticipating instead the large egg-hunts with my cousins around my grandparents’ farm on Easter Sunday.
