    I’ve heard that God always answers prayers. Sometimes the answer is no. Sometimes, he says yes in ways that seem like a no. 

    During a family vacation in the Pacific Northwest, one of the things I wanted to see was an orca. We were hopeful, but we never saw one.

    As I have reflected on this minor disappointment, and through the act of creating this painting, something occurred to me. God knew I wanted to see an orca, but because he knows me so deeply, he also knew why I wanted to see one, before even I did. 

    I had to stop and ask myself, why did I want to see an orca in the wild? 

    I wanted to experience God’s creation in a powerful way. 

    I wanted to see something I’d never seen before. 

    I wanted to have a remarkable experience with my children. 

    I wanted a neat encounter with an animal. 

    As it turns out, I did all of those things, even though I never saw one orca. 

    I marveled at the breathtaking vistas of Hurricane Ridge. 

    Our vacation home was on a beach filled with thousands of crabs. Never saw anything like that before. 

    Between our mountain hike, the ferry rides, the view from the Space Needle and a spin on Seattle’s Great Wheel, there was no shortage of remarkable experiences to be shared with my kids. 

    And feeding some harbor seals with a $2 bag of fish heads was a pretty neat animal encounter. 

    I didn’t get what I asked for. But somehow, I still got what I wanted. 

    Time and time again in my life, I didn’t get things that I asked for.  

    Sometimes we miss the answer to our prayers because we’re looking in the wrong place.
