Details matter. As we approach three years this Wednesday, God continues to remind us he's in control of this journey. One of James David Eunice's favorite places was Camp Tygart. He attended Chrysalis as part of the Walk to Emmaus community, and that weekend helped reinforce and strengthen his relationship with Christ. He worked the event the next year and was scheduled to work it again a couple of weekends after he went missing. He loved being there, and I think it's because it's one of the places he felt closest to God.
Chrysalis for girls is this weekend and we went out there tonight. On the way out there, a friend sent Tammy a screen shot of the final score of the Seattle-New Orleans football game. It was 23-15. James' football number was 23 and his baseball number was 15. Earlier today I wrote a note with the title Soundtrack of Life. I mentioned several songs during the note, but near the end, i mentioned the final three. I wrote, "Maybe I’ll include some of these songs on there, but I lean more these days to “How Great Thou Art” and “It is Well with My Soul,” and may be more inclined to include those. I’m certain though that I would include the song “Oceans” by Hillsong United." The final three songs we sang at the Chrysalis event tonight were, "It is Well with My Soul," "How Great Thou Art," and "Oceans." All Tammy Allbritton Eunice and I could do was cry as everyone sang "Oceans."
Many might say this is just coincidence, but I contend God is in the details. Someone found the following quote scribbled on a cellar wall during the Holocaust, "I believe in the sun even when it is not shining, I believe in love even when I cannot feel it, I believe in God even when He is silent." I do, too, but I'm so thankful when He is not.
