Wondering Is A Wonder In Itself!
What man can imagine, man can do.
What caused you to last wonder about something?
Did you ever wonder: if the Universe always existed; if polar bears were ever brown; why grasshoppers hop and sometimes fly; if folks have always liked blueberry pie; and, whether or not there is another life after this one?
Did you ever wonder: how pencils are made; what games children in other countries play; what seagulls think when they are drifting with the wind; or how plants know when to put on new leaves and ready themselves for spring?
Did you ever wonder: if the dreams of the rich and the dreams of the poor are the same; if you would eat as much if you had no sense of taste; whether athletes think that practices are worse than the games themselves; if bullies fear meeting a worse bully?
Did you ever wonder: if love could ever come your way; how babies feel being born; whether soldiers have any idea what they are getting into before the shooting starts; if mothers nursing a newborn ever have realistic imaginings of their child’s future; or what inspired someone to invent the drinking straw?
Did you ever wonder: how Christ could love us enough to die for us the way he did and how his Heavenly Father could know what he had agreed to do and let him do it; how someone with the faith of Mother Theresa could question her own faith, and still serve others as she did?
Did you ever wonder: why you were given the gift of life, yet others are stillborn; if your life has meaning beyond its meaning to your own family; if praying means your prayers are heard by angels or God, and how decisions are made as to how those prayers will be answered?
I have, and now perhaps you have, too.
