Contemplating Sprites and Sickness

Good Day, God!

I am growing BORED with being sick, God! BORED and IRRITATED! Part of me feels like I am under attack and another part (more full of faith) feels it has all been a gift.

Tomorrow I see our favorite doctor — to find out about this viral plague. But ENOUGH about me!

So, You can understand, God, how when the Terra Daily posted an article about Sprites I thought that is JUST THE THING to take my mind off of myself!

Looking at the photo — there is what looks like a pillar of red slightly above that bright white patch of a storm. That’s a Sprite. Sprites last one thousandth of a second.

The article says that Sprites are discharges of positive electrons that go UP . . . 50 miles up . . . above the storm. Apparently, lightening consists of negative electrons that go down toward the ground. Of course, God, You know all about this — how it works, and so forth.

But, we humans are just starting to understand. In fact, we are just beginning to acknowledge Sprites exist. Pilots have been talking about Sprites for years but their reports were mostly dismissed. We do that, don’t we God — ignore stuff that doesn’t fit into our World View. And, I am afraid we do that to You a lot, God.

Let’s face it. You DO NOT FIT into our mental map. Even those of us who believe You exist don’t really have the right of it. Hmm. Maybe those of us who try to fit You in are further off? Drat! That’s quite possible. Please, God, shake up my Mental Map. Please make more ROOM — in me and in my map –for You!
