Recently, a friend of mine included something similar to the following in her Facebook status:
"I wish I could sit down with God and ask some questions. I know I'm here to follow his plan, but I simply don't understand it sometimes."
I couldn't agree more.
I refuse to sincerely question my faith, but certain circumstances throughout my life have pushed me to come close. Watching Caroline battle with her disease.......the distancing from my parents.......jobs lost......tragic news events........etc, etc......all make me wonder what lesson I should be learning. I'm torn with how to explain the world to my kids. Carter is old enough to ask mature, thought provoking questions now and sometimes I find myself like a deer in headlights, stumped with what he is asking of me.
Because, as a mom, I'm supposed to have all the answers. To fix what is broken. To make sense of a seemingly senseless situation.
Anyone else feel like this?
