..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

One Grand Providence

God's care is more evident in some instances of [His providence]
than in others to the dim and often bewildered vision of humanity.
Upon such instances we seize and call them providences. It is well
that we can; but it would be gloriously better if we could believe
that the whole matter is one grand providence.

- George MacDonald (1824-1905), "Annals of a Quiet Neighbourhood
