Why Ask Why

I ask you many questions, when I pray, throughout the day. For my heart, and mind, weigh most heavily. This was the answer, he gave to me. My child, Why, ask Why? Why do people, do such things? Why do you allow, sickness, and disease? Why do you let these wars begin? This was the answer, he gave to me. My child, Why, ask Why? To enjoy sweetness, you must taste, the sour. To see goodness, in people, you must also see the bad. To see the light, you must also experience the dark. For all these things, great and small, you can’t begin to understand. As it was written, within my plan. As he says to me, My child, Why, ask Why?
