We all have those nagging questions
Which haunt us throughout our lives
And plunge us into a great search
That so often only leads us to more questions
Amidst these questions pacing my mind
Came a distinct voice from deep within
But what could I have important enough to write that
it should ever be read? Write what?
"Write what you know."
Everyone has a story
Everyone has a God
"Write about God."
But who am I to write about God?
I who am no scholar or theologian or even member of a church
By what measure am I worthy to write of God?
A parent's wisdom, a Father's phrase
"Because I said so."
And so I write, breaking the most often given advice to write what you know. Instead, I write what I struggle to understand. And I share it with you in the hope that by doing so it will, in some small way, help you in your own search.

I hope you never stop writing. As it helps you, I know it will help others. You have a gift, a very unique gift. Many of us might take that for granted, but you have made good use of your gift. I look forward to your next posting.

When it seems to look grey or facing the unknown, you count your points. Then a smile comes across your face. The start of another day begins and passes, but the smile stays within. Only you will understand.
