"We are supposed to be Arks…. containers of His very life….. drifting along on the sea of life…. rudderless…. as He takes us where He wants us to go…. takes us with infinite patience… infinite love…. to fulfill His infinite purpose for putting us here."

I talk regularly here about what a blast we are having every day because... now pay close attention here.... this is pretty complicated.... really heavy....because..... we are having such an incredible blast every day! Makes it pretty simple to talk about... :)

What a description of how life comes at us.... slings and arrows of outrageous fortune... a sea of troubles... stuff happens all around us.... never seems to stop... we talk about "Murphy's Law"... if it can go wrong... it will.... :)

"Next time I want to talk about just how close Shakespeare was to the truth…. but missed it…. like we all do….. "
I guess Shakespeare had no idea I would play with his Hamlet soliquy in such a dastardly fashion..... "To be or not be....that is the question..." Old "Shake" actually hit on something there that he had no idea just how right on he was... hmmm... maybe I'll talk about that next time.
