A GREAT MYSTERY--

The GREAT mysteries of life--

How did that fuzz get in your belly button?




Who decided what was right and left?




If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?



Dying of old age begins at what age?




One of the devotionals I read and listen to daily is "If"...Today's scripture and devotional from John concerned the passage where Jesus is writing in the sand.  WHAT was he writing?  A mystery---a mystery surrounded by many of the mysteries of faith.  There is no explanation and we will not know here on this earth---SO we accept it based upon faith.  Faith which comes from what we DO know.  What has been revealed to us about The Trinity through our personal experience.  My life today is a testimony of God's abiding faithfulness and love.  HE is my strength and portion---HE has brought me through a great grief.  


Yes--there are MANY mysteries of our faith---but we know enough to trust-and remember accept even when we do not have the answers of explanations.  I accept that which is unknown and unseen because of what I DO know and see.  TRUST AND FAITH!


"But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger.  When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them 'If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.  Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.'"
John 8:6-8

Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
