We're all peering over the edge, looking for the same thing. Looking, seeking, reaching for something bigger than ourselves... meaning and depth in this life of disappointment. We want to feel as if there is a reason or a cause. And we accept that often there is no's a sign of maturity and wisdom when a person can accept life as unreasonable... yet, in our hearts we long to know why.

While peering over this edge or chasing explanations, we all find something that brings us sanity... or so we think. Whether it's children, the bottle or an endless career, we hold on to something that brings us supposed clarity. And the irony? Those things can fail us. And we will again be seeking answers and reason.

Sweet Jesus Christ my sanity
Sweet Jesus Christ my clarity
Bread of heaven, broken for me
Cup of salvation held up to drink
Jesus, Mystery

To have belief in a God... a savior... brings an explanation into life that no other can offer. Times like these, when I attempt to be a good wife, good mother, good friend, good family member, good housekeeper, good anything... I can't do it without God.

It's a mystery and yet not.
