I think the concept of the universe and time are a version of hope. Hope is the big deal, you see it in every story. That's what so many stories and ideas and theories come from. It is important to have hope, but it is sometimes hope that leads to the greatest tragedies.
Weezie, I also am a Christian but I understand That things happen through his will, but sometimes I wonder if God must have a sense of humor about some of this stuff. It seems like things just keep getting dumped in my lap all the time and it's just more then I can take at times(sorry, rant over)
