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.

I love your 'wonders'...gives one much food for thought here. Yes, I do wonder so many of those things which you speak of. All very good thoughts to ponder. : ) Voted up and beautiful, by the way. I thought the picture of you was Jimmy Stewart. Did you ever have anyone tell you, you looked like him?? That is you, right?

girltalksshop: I have been considered a look-alike for boxer Gene Fullmer, Gene Kelly, and D. B. Cooper (enough like the sketch that the FBI sent an agent to ask me where I was when he bailed out of the plane with his hijack ransom!) Looking like Jimmy Stewart is a first, but I did send my good deeds to Washington, maybe that's it! I'm glad you are pondering the 'wonders.' Thanks for the comment and I will watch Jimmy Stewart more carefully in the future. An archive of his films is held by Brigham Young University here in Utah.

I always think a still born child has something bad in it so life it taken and there is no suffering.

Voted up, interesting.

Curiad: Isn't it great that we can read about unsolved mysteries, imagine ourselves sailing down the Amazon, exploring a newly discovered Egyptian burial site, or exploring the wreckage of the Titanic! Glad you liked the Hub and I appreciate each time you take the time to comment on one of mine.

ImKarn23: I wrote this before going to church services this morning and posted it when I got a moment this afternoon. I take time in my hands when I write, and love it when you and others comment.

I wonder where we would be if we didn't have knowledge and the one's who disperse it.

Great hub.

Voted up and awesome. I do wonder and sometimes I wonder about too much. But I never wonder if God loves me. I know He does.

Gypsy Rose Lee: Wondering is not synonymous with worrying, though worries cause us to wonder. Concentrate on wondering about the beauties of life and the wonder of it all. Each new day is a wonder in itself.

A wonderful hub for all of us… We wonder many things about life. It is the reason why we have wisdom to keep on wondering the impossibility of our existence. We wonder to ponder about who we are and find things wonderful about this universe. I wonder why wonderful things happening with us…Maybe it is your god-given wisdom to wonder as our brothers and sisters wonder this wonderful piece of hub!

savior: Indeed we will spend much of today wondering. It is sometimes called curiosity or inquisitiveness. It keeps each day exciting and interesting. It is the gateway to sharing, to growth, and to wonderful Hubs, too. Thanks for stopping by and your comment.

writer20: I think the same thing may account for most miscarriages, but I always believe the saying "God has a plan." My mother had several miscarriages before my only sibling, my younger sister Mary, was born at seven months and 2.5 pounds and has survived, has three daughters of her own, and lives with Mom (who is now closer to 104 than she is to 103) Mary is Mom's primary caregiver and sharing the family home. Did God have a plan for all that? I believe so. Did the in between miscarriages make Mary even more welcomed and loved? Who can say, but that could be the case.

cleaner3: In answer to your question here: I guess we would be left to wonder on our own.

JSChams: We certainly may, as we have so much more to wonder about as perceived unanswered questions.
