The Universe and Everything


Sir, I exist!
Sir, I exist!

 

At many times in my life I have given much thought to the serious issues of science, religion, God, philosophy, and why I do the things I do. Analyzing everything seems to be an obsession of my family. Of late, I have decided to delve into the deep issues once more and divulge my unique disposition. (Which may not be as unique as I think) Today, while I pondered weak and weary upon my forgotten book of lore, my daughter asserts her presence by speaking to me through a stuffed giraffe called Doctor. She insists I say hello and have a rousing and meaningful conversation. As I spoke to Doctor, I realized that all the questions I endeavor to answer and their respective meanings are not worthy to be compared with spending time with one’s children. It strikes me that if Billy Sunday had acquired this philosophy his children may have turned out differently. Losing one’s children to other pursuits in life is never a good thing. So I remind you the reader to regard family higher than all other inquiry.

  1. Ah, YES! I read the following verse and also apply it to my family. . .Matt.16:26 “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?”

  2. Or…Thou shalt love the Lord your God with thy heart, with all thy soul, and with all thy mind…and thy neighbor (children) as thyself.”

    Our children in some way embody our faith, our testimony, our character, our legacy, and our mission as well as our love.

  3. I have to say that I enjoy you enjoying spending time (both in fun and in education) with our girls. You’re a great father, and it’s obvious to everyone how much they love you.
