WHY?

How often do we wonder why bad things happen to us? We try to live in a way that pleases God, and still disaster can strike at any moment. Cancer, loss of job, car accidents, loss of family, flunk an exam in school, and the list goes on. And we question God. Why?
This evening God gave us a gorgeous sunset. And I wondered why. If I'd been inside I'd have missed it. On my way home from the grocery store, the pinks and blues streaked across the sky. Why does God give us beautiful sunsets and sunrises?

I also am amazed at the variety of flowers, weeds, trees, shrubs, dogs, cats, and food God gave us. Why didn't he stop with one tree? One flower? If I slow down, I find that God delights me on a daily basis.



Think about ice cream. There are ton of ice cream flavors plus yogurt, sorbet, Italian ice and other cold delights.


I guess what I'm trying to say is that when we question God, let's not forget the good questions too.

Have a great weekend!
