The last day of another month! They seem to be arriving more quickly lately, these last days of another month. Seems like a good time to share my world with Melanie and all of you.
Must we have evidence to know the truth? For everyday life, I don’t think I’ve required evidence to know the truth for most of my life, but lately – it seems I am constantly fact-checking things I read, so maybe now I do demand evidence to determine truth. We seem to have a variety of “truths” these days.
How much control does a person have over their life? We have control over the choices we make, but there are a lot of things that aren’t in our control that have an affect on our lives. We can decide whether today is the day we’ll go shopping – but we can’t control what happens when we leave our houses. We can’t control the other drivers, the weather, etc.
What is gravity and how does it work? Gravity is what keeps me from being Mary Poppins.
Can a person be happy if they have never experienced sadness? How about vice versa? Yes, I think a person can be happy if they haven’t experienced sadness. Look at young children, for instance. However, as we grow, perhaps knowing sadness makes happiness all the better. The same would apply to switching the two for teens and adults, but little children do not need to know sadness to know happiness.
Please feel free to share a song, a poem, a quote or an image or photo to show what you were grateful for during this past week. (Optional as always). I am grateful for neighbors who share their baked products as well as a lot of other things.
