Hey God Why Now?

As humans it is in our nature to question everything. I am as guilty of it as anyone. In my small limited brain I have this need to know why things are happening at this moment. Here is a little secret. God knows and he hears these kinds of questions every nano second every day and frankly decides if he answers the question or not? The hard fact is the world works on his time and not ours. As big and physically strong I am there are certain things I can’t control and God’s timetable doesn’t work the same as mine. That lesson I learned over 11 years ago as I stood by my dying fathers beside and he said to me ” I’m dying son”. At that moment it hit that God is in control of this show and not me. As I help guide my wife to her final resting place I ask that question of God often. Hey God Why Now?

Life Is A Unique Journey

The last couple of weeks life has hit me pretty good. Being told that medically you can’t be doing things that you have done for decades is tough. It’s what I have known for as long as I can remember however the risk are simply too great. It is also a case of looking at your on mortality in a much more serious way. We all hear of people who are much younger that just drop dead for no apparent reason. Yet we continue to fret over things that really do not matter. The older we get of course we get the privilege of dealing with aging parents etc. Isn’t life grand?

I do wonder what I should do next? The only thing I do know for sure is sitting around complaining about this change isn’t going to help!
