Five Minute Friday: Beyond


Is that like out in the wild blue yonder? or To infinity and beyond? or is it Just beyond me!

Whatever beyond is, it is something that is “out there”. Whether actually or mentally, beyond is outside our grasp. 

So, what’s beyond me?


It’s beyond me…


 to understand why people cut across three lanes of traffic just to get to the exit and scare the creeps out of all of the rest of us who are watching.

to climb a mountain, not that I would want to- I like hiking, etc. but mountains are to look at!

to get why someone would fight getting old- we all do it- and it’s the natural order of things. 

to stop doing things I’m capable of just because I’m getting older- that’s a cop out.

to swim more than 4-5 laps in my pool- but getting better every day.

to not believe there’s a beautiful, grand order to things in this world and that all things and beings were made for a specific purpose and there is a plan! 

to understand the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything -yes, I’ve been listening to the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy-road trip- and no, it’s not 42!

But, it’s not beyond me to get that The Author and Creator of the Galaxy is in control and it is His plan at work in me daily and that daily I fail some and get back up and succeed some.  


Oh, have to add these verses they just fit too well!

 Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it. Deuteronomy 30:11-13
