The question.


they say we leave this world just the way we came into it - naked and alone.

so, if we do leave with nothing,
what then, is a measure of a life?

is it defined by the people we choose to love?

or is life simply measured by our accomplishments?

and what if we fail? or are never truly loved?

what then? can we ever measure up?

or will the quiet desperation of a life gone wanting drive us mad?

i have the same questions about life too.especially at the point of life i'm at:finishing my first semester of freshman year. i love it, but i hate it at the same time. i love my AIVCF small group, my newfound church, my classmates (most of them anyway), my friends who have stuck with me past the seasonal changes. but i don't like what has happened, a lot of it. losing a friend, losing my credit card, breaking so many things, feeling alone, being far from home, not having good meals that i enjoy, etc. it's ambivalent.

Hear hear!
and there are never enough answers for all the questions in the world. or if you know what is truly right or wrong.
