#1: Okay, let's start off with creation, something that's on my mind A LOT. What I was wondering is, why is it that every step in the process of creating children (well, except the first step, that step is pretty fun) is so exhausting/nauseating/hormonal/incredibly uncomfortable/excruciatingly painful? I know you have some really good reasons, I just don't get them and would like to, so just wondering.
#2. Why is it, that when babies are cutting new teeth, that they get fevers and runny noses? I just don't understand the correlation there. Again, I'm sure you have a great reason, I just don't comprehend it.
#3. Why is it that some people are born into the most abject of poverty-stricken situations, and can never rise above it, and some people are born into the lap of luxury and always remain there?
#4. Why is it that I have had the privilege of being born as a human being, in this day and age, in this country, where I am afforded an unbelievable amount of freedom, compared to women who have lived in other times and other places? And why wasn't I born as a dog? Or a praying mantis? Or a caveman...I mean woman? Anyways, thanks SOOOO much for that. I'm certainly not complaining, because I certainly would not want to be most of the dogs I know.
#5. During the time of "trials and tribulations", you know, right before your son Jesus Christ comes for the second time, are we going to have a long period of time without computers/internet access? It's just that I need to know, because if so, I need to start printing out all of my photos and put them in cute albums, instead of storing them on my hard drive, and I'll need to find something else to do with my spare time, because I spend a lot of it on the internet.
#6. Why did you make rainbows and music and flowers? Is it just because you love us and wanted to do something really nice for us, just for the sole purpose of making us happy? It seems like it, because those things really do. And thank you.
God, I don't know if you read blogs or have your numberless concourses of angels read them and report back for inappropriate content, but I DO know that you answer our prayers. Soooo, I guess what I need to do is to get down on my knees and start asking these questions if I really want the answers. Thanks for listening...God...and anyone else who is.
