Destination known or unknown
I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is not about knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. - Gilda Radner
Most of my generation knows the battle Gilda Rainer forged through and her body surrendered to at death (see below). Gene Wilder's battle with Gilda's suffering was his own as well. Neither knew the complete journey story, nor did Gene know how long he would live beyond Gilda. He loved her only to his last days.
Good Friday is swiftly approaching. I have contemplated most my life, how much did Jesus knew, comprehended about the suffering he would shoulder on humanity's behalf. If He had to gain full knowledge and understanding of the human experience, was the actual physical, mental, and emotional process a surprise? For knowledge is only one aspect of existence, experience is a completely different experience.
We live each day as is develops, everyone of us. We have hopes for an end result, but technically the result is unknown.
So live each moment of every day, in faith, with hope, acting in love, knowing Our Savior and God already see the result.
(For our younger readers...Gilda Radner was a talented actress and comedienne, and one of the original Saturday Night Live cast members. She was married to the great comedic actor Gene Wilder, and died of ovarian cancer in 1989, at the age of 43. She was not shy about her illness, and her legacy is increased awareness of the importance of the early detection of ovarian cancer.)
