What do you wonder?
This question was asked by Andy Stanley a late night TV minister last week for the start of his Welcome To Wonderland series. It has been in my mind this whole week.
The main thing I wonder is why is my life has gone in the directions they have. The ups and the mostly downs. I have survived many tragedies and I have survived cancer. I wonder what kind of a person I would have been had not all of these events had not happened. Can never really never really know, but more than likely I would've been very driven to the live of power and have been arrogant and rude. That was where I left off anyway before I got married at 17.
The family tragedies of young lives taken to soon including my first born son and my husband, the tidal waves of loss began to shape the person that I am today. I do still have a part of the old me within me though that keeps me fighting to keep my head above water. I wonder what life would be like with them still here?
I wonder why the many different diseases and ailments are here to teach us? I think this may be to show us that we have strength we didn't know we had within us, to show us that we do have family and friends that love us.
I also wonder what has happened to the world and our own country? So much violence and hatred abound! There is also much love and kindness that also arises. I wonder which is stronger?
