Questions to which there are no answers

The following are questions for which there is no answer:

Why is it that in times of stress it seems people who could take a load off your shoulders seem to respond by piling more on?

Why does a child always want to ride one more ride at the amusement park even after they have ridden everything to exhaustion?

What is the reason we are never satisfied with what we have and we always want something that is just right out of our reach?

Why do you see cows with their head stuck through a barbed wire fence eating grass from the other side while the barbs are sticking in and tearing the flesh on their neck? Is the grass really greener on the other side?

Does anyone ever marry the person they were really in love with or will they always pine over the “one that got away?”

I happened to be reading in Ecclesiastes and noticed that the writer was basically asking the same questions, after that I didn’t feel so cynical. I read the whole book and it seems that the “preacher” was mystified at how everyone works and it all seems to be for nothing, everything is smoke and vanishes, wow, what does that leave? Chapter 3, verses 1-8 tells us that there is a time for everything,

A right time for birth and another for death, A right time to plant and another to reap, A right time to kill and another to heal, A right time to destroy and another to construct, A right time to cry and another to laugh, A right time to lament and another to cheer, A right time to make love and another to abstain, A right time to embrace and another to part, A right time to search and another to count your losses, A right time to hold on and another to let go, A right time to rip out and another to mend, A right time to shut up and another to speak up, A right time to love and another to hate, A right time to wage war, and another to make peace.

When he gets through with this he says “what good is it all when we are only going to die?” It sounds to me like he was feeling a little depressed and haven’t we all been there? There are times that we feel like a hamster on a wheel running as fast as we can but never getting anywhere! That’s when you have to just stop and take a deep breath.

What is the conclusion of the whole matter?

12:13-14 Here now is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his commands, for this is everyone’s duty.  God will judge us for everything we do, including every secret thing, whether good or bad.

About harolene

Thank you for stopping by for a visit! If you read my thoughts you will see that I am sometimes serious, at other times sappy or funny, occasionally I am sad and sentimental, but I am always sincere! I am a single mother who raised two children, born ten years apart and different sexes so first it was bows and dolls, pretty dresses and boys! When my son was born it was rough and tumble games, baseball, soccer, wrestling and girls! I am known for my "smile" and for my default answer to any situation, "no problem", which was something I didn't realize I did until it was pointed out to me! I am a moon watcher and a star gazer. I am astounded and feel so small knowing that every creature that has ever walked the face of this earth has gazed upon that same beautiful orb that my eyes can behold on any night when the earth is not wearing her cloak of clouds. My parents have made me the person that I am. Their love, veracity in all areas of life, humor and passion for their work and each other have given me hope that my life can actually be a happy one! Chances are if you are reading this you already know all this but again, I appreciate your stopping by! While you're here hit the "Like" button for me and thanks for checking in!
