A world full of chaos
Welcome, chaos! You were the primordial and most ancient of Greek gods. It is said you were the source of creation of the universe and of all matter and energy, which can neither be created nor destroyed. You have visited this earth since its beginning, evolving earth itself and its inhabitants. You created mankind in your image, each of us with mind, heart (to be used together), soul and a wondrous, intricate body. You gave us the knowledge of good and evil and the freedom to be as we choose in our lives. You created time as we know it, but there are no limits to time or power in your being. You are the all powerful mystery of all life.
When many of this human race get stuck in clumps of discord, confusion, discouragement and anger, you thrust your wrath upon us, demanding change and order. You work in us and through us, strengthening those who know you, all in your infallible love. On the top of the mountain, a mystified Moses asked your name to tell the people below. You breathed: “I am that I am … tell them I Am sent you.” We live and move and have our being in you. Many know that.
I want to thank the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, its community of editors and columnists, especially Paul Greenberg and David Brooks, and the letter-writers for the beliefs, inspiration and laughs shared.
And I think President Trump should release his tax information and stop his tweets. I pray for him and for Mr. Putin, ISIS, etc., giving them all to God so I don’t have to worry about the rest of us. JUDITH BAUM North Little Rock
