There are some people who touch the lives of others wherever they go. Kenneth was just a construction worker, a carpenter, really. But people changed when he came into their lives. Alex, too, would have an impression on everyone who met this five year old.
Charlie, the gentle giant, Pastor Jim and Shirley Lindys, Zach, Kaitlyn, Massie, Carla, Brook, and Ian, each were touched by Kenneth and Alex. Each would have their faith challenged – if they would “only believe” - when Alex is diagnosed with leukemia. The days he spends in the hospital will tear at their hearts bring emotions that only God can address.
But the book is not about emotions, it focuses on God's presence on both good days and bad days, it focuses on the need to trust Him whatever may come our way. But the book is also a reminder that our best is not always good enough – we cannot do it all.
What we can do is what God has called us to do – that is all that is expected of us. It was a lesson I needed to learn, others will as well.
