Decisions and the Will of God
In discussing the tragic collision in Jackson between Christian couples, I reflected this week upon the women who beat me at the bowling Alley last week, who underwent a double heart valve repair/replacement in her mid 80s. One women is given opportunity to extend a long life, one couple is suddenly unable to continue a young life, through no fault other than being in the wrong place at the wrong instant.
Todays photo of happy desert eating, was taken during a reunion with a women who decided to move back home to New Jersey and live with her daughter. Her decision changed our relationship, her daily world, her place of worship, and her experience of winter that has driven her back to the valley for relief for a few weeks.
Has God given us freedoms that impact our lives, or did that couple who died a fiery death have a times up moment delivered by an omniscient and all powerful God?
