An Old Man's Musings  

Questions to ponder: Each time I have chosen to do something or not to, I have carefully weighed all the options and ramifications, and I thought I knew how it would effect my life and the lives of my loved ones and friends, and hw my life would turn out. Now as I look back, did I, did I know? 

I have watched my late wife Betty many times as she carefully placed individual squares of fabric into a design, and then always, created a wall hanging quilt of indescribable beauty. I was always in awe of her skill and abilities to know which was the best choice. I asked Betty once how she knew which to choose, and she laughed, and bursting my bubble,  quietly said to me, "Sometimes I do, but often I don't... I just keep trying and while I will often choose wrong, eventually I get it right, but not because I know better, but as I run out of choices." I think life is like that.... we all make choices, and sometimes we choose because we know which to choose, but often as my Betty said, "I just keep trying and while I will often choose wrong, eventually I get it right, but not because I know better, but as I run out of choices."

 I also asked Betty if she always knew just how one of her beautiful quilts would turn out. Betty told me that she was sure that they would be quilts, just not how beautiful. I think life is like that.... we are sure we live, but never ever really know how it will all turn out. I planned on many many more years of retirement and fun times with my Betty on this earth, and it did not turn out that way.... Why, I do not know, but it is pretty obvious that I do not control or choose how my life will turn out.... Only GOD can do that! ... Just an Old Man's Musings....

We all know where this came from, and it is not me, but GOD, so use what you need, and then pray and thank our GOD. Do not ever thank me, as I am only a channel for our Lord. Think of me as maybe being a very small and feeble beam of light pointing the way towards the Light of Christ. God Bless You All! Last modified: June 21, 2013(AL).
