I am just wondering

I wonder, what if: It did not snow ( 1 inch) this morning
would I feel more springy?
What if I checked a lottery ticket and had a $50,000 winner, does that make my life easier, better or just the next 3 weeks?
If I was still married, what would that be like?
If I never married, never had my wonderful children, who would I be?
Most of these are hard to answer accurately.

What if God did not bring His chosen people out of the land of Egypt?

If I had not heard His call to come out of my own days of 'slavery' through a wide wilderness and into a promised land, dripping with milk and honey?
This is life.
This moment matters for myself and my family.
Now is. What belongs to me is already mine.
Longing for and seeking another reality is a rejection of His plan for my NOW.
I surrender God. I think I finally get it

Those are really soul-searching questions! Especially who would I be without the kids, n if I wasn't here now, I'd be messing with God's plan for me!
We are us in our now because of all that happened. I'm just glad I'm not a nasty idiot after going thru all the stuff...

May God speak to your heart as you seek his kingdom and His righteousness.

I also have a thousand "what ifs" in my life.

Really Q # 2 is the good one.

Nice flower slide-show there!
Ya, snow messes up the Spring Fling a bit...

I'm wondering if I posted the comment I meant to here before this, or if it dissappeared...
i'll be back to check, of course!

That's awesome. I look at your words and think..
I didn't snow here today
I didn't win the lottery
I don't have kids
I'm not married...
But I still get all the Milk and Honey I can stand.
I get it too.

Tanya sent me :)

What if...

What it I had not asked "what if"?

Would I know better...or...worse?

What if?

Snag, you are one of the gentlest souls I have known.
Rita, it comes down to, IF NOT FOR HIM.
Russ, I am so glad you are a part of the family.
David H, I suppose we ask, because we want to know, need to know. The questions are as important as the answers
