Early Morning Thoughts

I'm sleepless this early morning. I don't know what it is about the quiet of midnight that beckons me so often to stay up beyond a decent hour. Perhaps it is the quiet. No telephone ringing. The television is in the off position. No noisy neighbors. It's just me and this beautiful computer that sit alone in the dark of night.

The world is absolutely still this evening. I can't even hear the crickets. The moon is just a sliver and the stars are hiding in the blackness. I wonder just how many universes and planets and people like me are in the infinity. What does infinity look like? And if God is up there somewhere in all that infinity, could he really know my deepest desires? I am just one in all of the infiniteness of the universe. Could it be that God is in me?

In the quiet of this early morn, I look out into the blackness of space and wonder what lies beyond the stars. In the perfect grandeur of the universe, there are no mistakes. I am where I am supposed to be. You, reading this, are where you're supposed to be. When I wake in the morning, I will go to work and follow the same patterns of the previous Monday's and I will be where I'm supposed to be. What is to become of me on Tuesday? May I live in each moment. Have a GREAT week!
