The new look is kind of serious, huh? The InStyle magazine helps things a little, but I really need a picture of a giant toddler head with Play-Do smeared on his mouth. Then all the sides of me would be covered I think.
I love that book in my header, though, Finding God in the Questions. I love the whole concept. I knew I wanted to read it as soon as I heard Dr. Johnson speak about it. He had been a very public, and respected, physician for a long time and now wanted to write about his faith. (Ah, the delicate balance between science and faith, Jack versus Locke, anyone?) I’m always intrigued when someone older than The Brady Brunch wants to tell us what they believe and why. And I wasn’t disappointed. I loved his broad approach to the topic of God. He didn’t assume he was writing to people who already believed.
I like questions. I think so many, many times, the answer is found within them. Humans are amazingly intelligent beings – and I marvel at all the things we have learned and invented and discovered and explained. But, and I think this is an actual scientific theorem sort of thing, there are many things we simply can’t explain. Even about ourselves. And for me, that’s where God is.
So, seriously, Play-Do, right? Or maybe spaghetti. I have the famous spaghetti-head shot for two of the three so far. The third one won’t eat it. Play-Do and cat food? Absolutely. Warm pasta smothered in tomato sauce? Don’t even try it, Mom.
