It’s Never Too Late!

This morning as I did my journal writing, I got another idea I can develop into something more than the sentence I wrote.  I decided that I would go, with the children who have been coming to the church for the food program, on their field trip to the zoo.  The leader decided to cancel it, however, due to a forecast of thunderstorms throughout the day.  They did not want the kids being out in the rain.  The day turned out lovely after all.
Since they were not going and we were having a rehearsal for the talent show again, I went to it.  My dance is still not put together the way I want, but it is getting better,  By our tech rehearsal on Friday, I plan to have it done.
The writing group which meets every two weeks was also meeting today, so I got lunch and stayed for that.  Even though I did not bring any writing to share with them, I wanted to tell them my news about my second publication  Of course they were all happy to hear that.  I enjoyed the pieces that the other writers shared.
When that ended, I went to the library to pick up a book I had requested which had finally come and was on hold for me.  It was good that I did too because I had four DVD’s due back today.  I had been thinking I still had one more day.  I had only watched two and did not have them with me.  Fortunately, none of them were requested by another patron and I was able to renew all of them.  Now I will have time to watch Aida and a Gilbert and Sullivan opera Iolanthe. The ones I saw were a Czech film called "I Served the King of England" and "Unmistaken  Child," a documentary about the search for a child believed to be the reincarnation of a Lama.
While I do not believe in reincarnation, my mind has always been open to the possibility of it being true.  There are so many cases of people, like this little boy, knowing things about a deceased person without having been told about that person to not have some sort of spiritual reason and I do not see anything in the Bible that would prove to me that such things do not happen.  There is too much the Bible does not tell us about God and Jesus.  
We do know that some people are more sensitive to spiritual things than others, so why do we deny the ideas those leaders of other faiths  believe and teach.  Why can’t we admit that we do not know, and will never know all there is to know about God while we are mortal, and couldn’t everything we think we know be wrong?  How can we be sure that others are wrong?
