Today is the National Day of Prayer, so, I’m thinking about praying.
Prayer Is A Mystery
God tells us to do it though…
God knows what we’ll say.
God isn’t visible.
God doesn’t guarantee we’ll get what we want.
God says it will benefit us, but the benefits aren’t always evident.
Prayer is a mystery.
Life Is A Mystery
I wondered yesterday:
Why are some of the strongest men I know also the laziest?
Why are some of the most caring women I know also the most emotionally unstable?
Why are some of the smartest guys I know also the most foolishly impulsive?
Why are some of the most street-smart girls I know still duped by smooth talkers?
I live in Minnesota and recently a local baseball player, Scott Baker, required arm surgery.
Baker, according to TwinCities.com, “was scheduled for surgery to clean scar tissue off a flexor tendon, a procedure that would have required about six months of rehabilitation. Instead, he will miss at least 12 months.”
I love mysteries. I love pondering mysteries. I love trying to solve mysteries. I wonder:
Why did two MRI exams failed to detect a tear in Baker’s ligament?
What causes baseball pitchers to have such a high rate of elbow injuries?
