This is a very personal track, dealing with the struggle Marlou and I had having no children. This has been a lifelong struggle we are still dealing with, yet throughout everything that happened, or did not happen, we always saw the grace of God in the middle of it all. After all, His grace covers all, is sufficient for us, gives us hope & purpose.
This track is my expression of some of this journey, we are still not at the end of the road...
