seven questions

i have some important questions....
why do people litter, and especially mcdonald's trash?
what is a stinkbug's purpose?
why do hens prefer to eat dog food over chicken feed?
what's the story behind the hat, knife, sash, jacket and jewelry my husband is sporting in this picture?
(i'll find out wednesday!)
what if jesus hadn't said lazarus, come out?
if he hadn't specified which person, i mean
would all the death-cloth bedecked people
have come blinking out of their tombs?
i believe yes
this god, who was in the beginning
this god, who is in the now
this god, who will be in all the tomorrows
when he speaks, things happen
so, yeah, he needed to specify which person should walk out of death
which begs the seventh question
what if we lived like we believe god for his might?

your turn. seven questions. go.
