Whoa. Big question. I don't know, to tell you the truth. There's a lot of mysteries in this life and many days I have a whole lot of Whys? Hows? What ifs? and Whens? jumping around in my head. That's when the "please"s start. Please, Lord--let this be okay. Let this too pass. Please. Please. Give me grace. Please help. Please make everything work out the way it should.
Granted, these aren't the most eloquent or sophisticated prayers.
But like a child asking a forever string of, "Whhhhyyy?"s, I believe there's Someone who knows the answers, and even better, understands the questions. And most of the time, that's enough.
I like being a kid and not having to know everything. Makes it possible to just have fun.
