My answer to a colleague's challenge for this old dog (that's me) to blog. I hope I've proven that 'every old dog could do a good blog'.
You definitely captured the unpredictable essence of life.
You ask; "Are things really in God's hands?" Here's what God's word says:Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.
Life's unpredictable, my pal.
Life could be uinpreditable.But I was thinking this unpredictable part forms a small part of our life and the chance of these things happening is low. Then they need not always be painful ones, they could be happy ones too. The bulk of our life is predictable, right?So, cheer up friends.
Thanks Firehorse, Sleepless, Alex and Fr. I was lamenting not so much about the unpredictability of life but more its fragility. Some of the causes are man-made, some are accidents while others are acts of nature.Yes, it helps to look on the bright side and seek solace in religion. Although life is not a bed of roses, there is always sunshine after the rain.
Victor,Wah u so good at Literature?
Peter - No, I am not very good in literature. I only managed to get a "P3" for the subject in my "O" level exam in 1972. Some people say that my poems are crap and I think they are right.I also like to do a cut-and-paste of other people's work. The big word for that is "plagiarise", I think.
1972? I wasn't even born yet!
Haha. Alex, you just have to highlight our vast age gap, don't you?
