What do you

wonder about?  I'm listening to the sound of thunder right this very moment.  Love it.  I wonder how God makes it.  Trent tells the kids that God is rearranging his furniture and He is just making noise.  

I wish I knew many things right now.  We can't see what is going on, but know something is.  We know the end is going to be beautiful but right now it seems ugly.  It feels ugly.  I don't like ugly.  I want beautiful.  Sigh.   I like things planned out accordingly.  I wonder why but I am still trusting in the bigger picture.

On a lighter note, I wonder why some people have been given the ability to make me laugh so hard I cry.  Trent and I went to Date Night last night.  Very funny and very naughty in parts.  Some of the lines...I don't want to recommend it because of the naughty parts but man oh man....funny.

I wonder how many English words my cat actually understands.

I wonder what it would be like to fly to the moon.

I wonder how long I have with those I love and if I'm missing my opportunity to be with them this very second.

I wonder how God can completely love me in spite of who I am, yet I know He does.

I wonder what I should be doing with my life.

I wonder if I could do a back handspring again....maybe shouldn't think too hard about this one or I may end up in the ER.

So, what do you wonder about?


  1. Big questions... is everything okay?

    I always thought that giants were bowling when thunder happens, because it sounds just like it ...

    Back handsprings? I could barely do a cartwheel as a kid!

  2. Love this post.

    I wonder why God allows righteous men to suffer? I wonder why babies die? I wonder if I am being a good Mom and what I can do to be better? I wonder if Nate will always have red hair? I wonder if Emma will grow up to be as confident as she is now as a 7 yr old. I wonder why so many friends come and go in our lives.

  3. I wonder why my dryer eats socks...why aging has to hurt so bad...why Christians don't act Christian...why religion has to be organized...why worrying doesn't burn more calories...too many whys, Karla!

  4. I wonder about back handsprings too! I wonder if my boys will grow up to be the men I picture them to be. I wonder why our summer's been turned upside down. I wonder why I know thousands of song lyrics and not as many Bible verses. I wonder if I could ever write a book. Sometime we should do our wondering together, don't you think? :)
