Okay, I finally saw Avatar. Yes, the 3-D was a bunch of fun and yes, it had some lovely things in it and I loved the dragons (They look like dragons to me), but I think for all the money they spent making the film they could have done a little better with the animals, although the forest was beautiful, the animals were a disappointment, but I guess you can't have everything :-). Am I the only one who thinks this?
A friend asked me the other night, how I can believe in God when something happens like the earthquake in Haiti. I did not have a very good answer. I think of God as an energy source that runs through every living thing and has only well being and love to give. I believe God cares about the people of Haiti, but I don't believe that God had anything to do with the earthquake.
I think that nature, mother earth does what it does and it is not personal. I also believe that everything happens for a reason, and that belief is hard to reconcile with something like the Haiti earthquake. So I end up throwing up my hands and asking why, when I see people suffering.
I do not have an answer. What do you all think? How do you answer those hard questions?
So, that's whats on my mind tonight, one topic trivial and one serious.
Happy Thursday. XOXO ♥
