What Do You Wonder?

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?

    Good thoughts to ponder...although sorry you have had bad times and losses in your life.
    We often feel like why did we do this or why did this happen to me/us. But, you know sometimes we come out stronger than before and sometimes wiser.
    I know one day good will prevail over the evil in this happened before in the Bible and it will happen again. Hang in there. emoticon

    I wish I stop wondering. I'm always wondering what's the purpose of this world within the immense universe?? Why such complication? Was it by chance At least I acquire a purpose for my life from reading a book not long ago, 'to make this a better world' by happily giving our 5 cents however we choose to do it.

    You have written a very thoughtful blog! I wonder what the world would be like if some of my beloved people hadn't gone @ such a young age! BUT on the other hand, I know the good effects their short lives on this planet had. Though we can't control when it is someone's time, we can make sure that we cherish and honor that person while they're here.

    Yes, I wonder a lot too, along those lines. The wondering gets me nowhere but I still wonder. I think that we live in a broken world, where hate is becoming more manifest. Every little thing here shapes who we become. I am sure God smiles when he sees how well you have survived.
