My sweet friends

In the last two months tragedy has hit twice for two of my friends. Lindsay Killingsworth lost her mother and Lauren Woods lost her daddy. It is times like these when people start asking God why questions. I have been in the why situations before. Not too many times, but the few times I have it drew me further and further away from Christ. Like I can even begin figuring out why our great God and King does things. I don't know if it's fair for us to ask these type of questions, do you? All I know is that when God first made the world he was pleased because it was good. Therefore concluding me to believe that bad things are not from God. Death was not part of God's original plan, so I believe that ALL things bad come from Satan (I know that sounds cheesy "Christian-speak" but I can't think of a better way to say it). Yes, God allows them to happen, but if we had lived according to His original design, bad things would not happen. Thoughts?

I took theology class this summer and just wrote a paper on doctrines such as creation. And, my dear, you are right on according to Calvinism. You are such a smarty pants and didnt even know it! Love you and miss you!
