An attempt to answer the un-answerable

At least in mind one of the big un-answerable questions is "why does God allow bad things to happen to us, His children?" At times I think I begin to grasp the hem of the answer, only to find that I'm not holding on to a full garment. In reality, I'm holding onto a thread and sometimes that just has to be enough. As I see it, there are often no answers that we can understand here and now. I think a big part of faith, and one of the more difficult aspects of faith, is being able to accept that God is bigger, His ways are not ours, and our minds can't comprehend the enormity of His Plan.

If you know me, you probably have a hint that I like to know things; I want to get the full explanation of how things work. That is part of my Type A personality; the oldest child in me who likes being in control. Or at least the illusion of control. So, this article that I came across last night was a good one for me: Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good Babies? I'm still processing it, running it over in my head. I'd love to hear any of your thoughts on it. Agree, disagree, or maybe like me, think that perhaps it's one of the threads, but not the whole garment.
