if there is anything we know at all
it is the first thing that we learned--
God is Love
and the second is
that with God
anything is possible
we are empowered
both by Love
and by Free Will
to negotiate this life
no one else is living our life
the only thing that limits us is
some limits are 'givens'...
our genetic family
our soul's past and future...
none of which are merely the luck of the draw
or something God saddled us with
without our knowledge...
we asked for all of it
and accepted all of it
for this life to have meaning
for the maturing of our soul
if we acknowledge that there is, in fact, a divine plan
it becomes possible to accept that there is
in the unexplainable in this life...such as
why some of us are born with no arms or legs
why some are born down syndrome, or epileptic, or homosexual
why some are born black or white or German or Chinese
why we have different gifts, talents, undeserved beauty
why "the poor you always have with you"
why 'evil' prospers
and then the question becomes moot
as to why a loving God would ever "condone"
...perhaps everything is always in the process of being loved and healed
