The story so far:
When I think about the dozens of questions we ask ourselves every day...
The broken-hearted ask, "Will I ever hear from so-and-so again?
And how will I react if I do?"
why anticipate something when, deep down, we suspect that it will never happen?
Where does wishful thinking get us?
Emotional merry-go-rounds are nasty that way.
They keep us from enjoying the many things that we already have.
Why does God put people in our lives to love if He is only going to take them away from us
Animal lovers may ask, "Do I really want to get attached to another pet when I know I'm
only going to have to put him to sleep one day?"
Silly questions some of them may be.
But wouldn't it be great
if there were a place we could visit
that had every answer
to every question
that we ask ourselves?
It would be a grand building with file cabinets galore and labels on each cabinet.
That's something nice to dream about when we fall asleep at night.
But here's the biggest question of them all:
Why do we waste our precious time waiting for answers that may never come?
Maybe we should dare to have more confidence in ourselves.
Maybe we should try to come up with our own answers.
