A list for God...

We have an ongoing joke around here about the list of questions we plan to ask God when we meet him face-to-face. It seems like when something is odd, complicated, funny, miserable, etc. we say, "Add that to the list of things to ask God." Well, of course, we know that when we meet God, we are going to immediately forget "the list" and worship him, but "the list" is a popular topic around here.

So, after talking to my dear friend, Sherri, today, I wonder two things. Do you have a figurative "list" and if so, what is on it?

I will start with a couple of things on my list...

1) Did you really have to make it all Eve's fault?
2) Why did you make The Designer and I so different and then intend for us to be married? (Please don't read into that one too much, I adore my husband and wouldn't want it any other way, but we are like night and day different)
3) Do you really care what people wear to church (I think I know the answer to this, but thought I might get confirmation from the Source)

The list goes on and on.

So, tell me...(1) do you have one and (2) what's on it?

I don't have a list per se, but I wonder how our special kids will present in heaven. I have a hard time believing they will be "typical", but just wonder how the whole thing will transfer over. We have a blind friend who has gone to be with Jesus, and when people told him that when he got to heaven he'd be able to see, he challenged them with the idea that they might not "see" as we know it in heaven.

Now you have me thinking.....:-)

We have the same kind of list! Ours tends to be a little silly sometimes...For one thing, we'd really like to know why He made certain things. For instance, ticks and mosquitoes. Why?

I'd also like to ask him if there was a purpose to our infertility. Was it in order that we would open our hearts to adoption, or was it just a result of a fallen world? Actually, I have lots of questions along these lines. I've always believed that everything happens for a purpose, but sometimes that purpose just isn't clear to us in this life. Christians have a bad habit of trying to assign a reason to everything...for instance..."God must be teaching you a lesson." Or, "you must have an unconfessed sin in your life that you're being punished for"....I don't always buy into that, since the Bible says that we will have suffering just as a matter of course of following Him. Anyway, I have a lot of conceptual questions along those lines.

Here's one I've always wondered from when I was a kid... Are the colors the same in everyone's eyes? Is Angie's green really my blue? So like in Angie's eyes is the sky my green, but she calls it blue because we've all learned the sky is blue.

Why is the sky blue? Everyone asks but no one knows the answer! :)
