So many things that I wonder about. No particular reason, no particular timing, no particular bias——–just random thoughts. Opinions abound and facts are often scarce.
Are you concerned, as I am, about the magnitude of lies and more lies on social media ? If it’s written, it’s believed and re-posted ——-and rumors become facts and truth is forever buried. Ignorance prevails !
What would we do without paper ? Do we ever really consider what paper means to our quality of life ?
How often are serious decisions made without any thought given to ” unintended consequences ” ? Frightening examples of this : too many hand-outs lead to a culture of dependency ; rigid partisanship creates a political environment that serves only to alienate; unwanted babies are neglected, abused, or worse ; adding employees or increasing wages makes prices increase. Hence, the circle is unbroken , and the list goes on and on. Unintended consequences…………just a few of many.
Isn’t it true that some people are just plain evil ? Not sick, but evil ?
If the Supreme Court found something to be un-Constitutional 30-40-50 years ago, how can it be Constitutionally sound today ? The Constitution has not changed. And same is true of finding something that upheld the Constitution several decades ago and in the 21st century, no longer true. Interpretation, always interpretation.
Why do we fuss about meteorologists when the forecast is wrong ? They are, after all, just human beings doing the best job they can. Are we perfect in our jobs ?
Do we truly understand that prayer has never left schools ? The law has only disallowed school employees to lead in prayer. If you don’t believe school prayer exists , drop by the flag pole at the high school on a given day or an Advanced Placement Physics class on exam day !!!! Student prayers abound……………
How did God’s weather become political ?
Ever wonder about the amount of money that college football coaches make ? I love college ball as much as the next fan ( Georgia and Clemson, both alma maters ) but millions of dollars a year in salary——for us to be entertained on Saturdays ??????
Do we ” get it ” that allowing a Christian school employee to pray publicly on school property opens the door for any religion/cult to do the same ? Unintended consequences………..
Don’t we all see or hear about angels every day in every way who do NOT have wings or a halo ? They abound………. in the grocery, at the ballgames, in schools, at meetings, in uniform, at the hospitals, on the sidewalks , and you can name your own.
How often do we give serious thought to the amount of time and money we give simply to be entertained———-as opposed to time and money given to truly be touched: intellectually, spiritually, and physically ? Think on that for a minute !
I could go on and on about my “wonderings” . I could talk about fishes in the sea, birds in the sky, God in His heaven, but I hope, instead, that you will wonder yourself and, perhaps, add to mine.
This one was terrific!!!!
Thank you so much ! Your comments are cherished——-even if you may be a little biased !!!!
All of these were valid things to ponder, but the one that got my inerest was about paper. Whatever would we do without it? Megan had an internship at Ga. Tech with the Institue of Paper Science and Technology, and that brought it to the forefront for us. It led her to write a book, including a trip to Appleton, Wisconsin to interview those people who started it long before it moved to Tech and to help with a huge exhibit at Hartsfield Airport about the history of papermaking. Fascinating topic!
How interesting ! Glad to know that I actually touched on something of major significance in the intellectual arena. What I didn’t do was mention the obvious : toilet paper……………..Thanks for sharing.
Wow! I wonder too.
You may wonder, but I’ve noticed that you are committed to critical ideas and positions. Perhaps wondering has been the journey that got you there. Thanks for reading and responding. It means a lot. And thanks for the Wordle fun !
This time of this year I spend my days in wonder. Wondering, wondering wondering can this really be?
SpeaKing of paper, I wonder what ever happened to the paper reduction act. And, as to your afterthought, hope they don’t reduce the amount of toilet paper I can buy. That happened once recently.
I wonder why teachers aren’t paid more when they spend more waking hours educating our children than we do as parents, and we put more pressure on them to teach about life things that should be taught at home,
I wonder how we got in such a mess politically.
I wonder how the disadvantaged are making it in this atmosphere of rising prices.
Oh, the things I wonder!!
Amen and amen ! More thoughts to ponder. Thanks…….
Once a month on an average the question is presented, which is the proper way to hang the roll of bathroom tissue? Should the available end go under or over? I suspect for some this is more important than the make, model or color of the next family automobile. Then there are those who struggle with the decision of which laundry detergent to use. Now I wonder if the late Queen Elizabeth ever thought about these subjects. The list goes on and on. Wait, I am wondering if your wonders are similar to mine?
Love this ! Life is filled with wonders ( and wondering ), for sure ! Thanks for yours……..
