*This is part of the A to Z challenge for April.
Timing is everything. If you get to the farmer’s market at the beginning of the weekend you get the best quality of produce. If you get to the farmer’s market at the end of the weekend, you can get the best deal because the farmer does not want to bring it home.
That sounds reasonable doesn’t it?
Now, consider the idea that everything happens at exactly the right time. Consider everything that happens in your lifetime was already scheduled to occur at that exact time. Do you think that is logical, or does it take away your free choice?
I remember a Bible verse that children were encouraged to learn. If I remember correctly it said, all my days on Earth were written before the day I was born. Yep, another one of those things I could not completely understand. It bothered me because I felt that meant I had no control over my life.
I have heard another theory regarding this notion. It says that before we are born, we sign a contract that lays out exactly what we intend to do in this lifetime. We agree to the length of time we have to do this, so maybe all the days were written before we were born.
What do you think?
