Response to yesterday and Happy Birthday Brenda

I got alot of good responses to yesterday's question that I had.  One disturbed me somewhat.  It said that we are just Human as so therefore have no right to question God's motives because it is evil.  That pretty much sums it up.  Those aren't the exact words.  If you want to see the exact words you can read them in the comments on that entry.  I was a little upset by that comment, I felt it directed at me, but then I came to realize that the writer was just saying that the act itself is evil no matter who does it.  I do not feel that way.  God gave us a brain to think and feel and wonder.  I don't think He wants us to cower in fear because we wonder why He does what He does.  Yes I am Human, I was born to be human and I will die Human.  I will probably die wondering what I will see on the other side. Will it be heaven, a nothingness, or the fires of Hell? 

Enough of that!  Tomorrow is my sister Brenda's birthday!  She will be 44.  Teehee!  I know, it will be happening to me in a couple more years!  Love ya sis!

Many of the great people of the Bible asked questions:  The whole book of Ecclesiastes is full of the same type questions you were asking.  If it were wrong to question, that book wouldn't be there.

You know, it's great to see (and I give you tons of credit)  that even tho that comment upset you, you reread it and it made more sense to you.  Where you could see it was not directed at you.  That sure stopped a lot of aol drama there! ;)  I thought you were pretty brave to even write that entry...religious matters are always so touchy because of such different beliefs.  So in the long run, you got pretty interesting comments about it and no one got all crazy on ya! lol  Wouldn't it be nice to all believe the same thing?!  Thanks for sharing  your thoughts...that's what journaling is all about in the first place.  :) Have a great day!

My comment wasn't directed towards you at all....and I didn't mean to upset you. Upon rereading what I wrote, I should have written it different. I can see why...

I apologize if I hurt your feelings I would not have done that on purpose or to start any drama.....

Happy birthday to your sister. Wish I was in my 40's again. My 40's and 50's were the best years of my life. Hope things are going well with you Linda. Paula
