Gary Varvel/Indianapolis Star
I had a sudden realization tonight at work. One that might not be all that popular with some of my friends and people who know me. It is simply this: may, just maybe, God's will is being done by letting Terri Shiavo die. Who are we to say what is and what is not God's will? Maybe God is using Terri as a tool, for what, I haven't the foggiest. It seems to me that we humans are good to go with God's Plan when it suits us. When things are going our way, but when something happens that we don't like then it becomes something else, it becomes almost "it can't be God's will that this happened to me." We don't know the Almighty's mind, some of us might like to think we do, but we don't. It is tragic that Terri has been thrown into the spotlight and used as a pawn. Remember that part of the Lord's prayer that goes something to the effect of "Your will be done on Earth as it is Heaven?" We may not understand it, but everything happens for a reason: the good and the bad.
