Somehow, somebody did something, sometime recently and it had to be somewhere that was somewhat close. But since somehow means in a way not specific, apparent or known and somebody is simply a non-specific person, we don’t know how it was done or who did whatever he or she did.

Then since something means a certain undetermined or unspecified thing and sometime is at some indefinite or indeterminate point of time, we really don’t know what was actually done or when this action or non-action was accomplished.

To add to the conundrum, somewhere could be in or at some place unspecified or unknown and somewhat means only in some measure or degree. Then we have to conclude that we don’t know either the exact location or how close it was, because close is measured by many means and methods.

More specificity is definitely needed but since it is not forthcoming, we will endeavor to solve the unknowns in the equation to cause the event in question to become known.

First we know that something happened, because if nothing had happened, somebody would know that it did or else nobody would know that it didn’t. Also it had to happen somehow because every happening has a way of happening, if it is a real happening. Plus non-happenings have a way of not happening most any time.

The happening that we have determined to have happened, had to happen to somebody – this since no animal, vegetable or mineral was mentioned. The somebody involved in the happening evidently chooses to remain anonymous at this time since they haven’t stepped forward with their identity.

The time of the happening is also a mystery but since our existence is marked by time, we do know that it happened sometime and somebody possibly knows nearly the exact time. This is because most momentous events like this are carved in many memories.

The somewhat in this large question indicates that the happening was not to the measure or degree that it could possibly have happened without the somewhat present as a suppressing factor. The event then had to happen somewhere because everything does. Since something has to be included in everything, the natural conclusion is that it happened somewhere.

The answer follows – yet without going into any sordid details. In unknowing ways, multitudes of ‘somebodies’ are ignoring the love of Jesus Christ. This is happening everyday, in all parts of the world and even in the lives of some very close to you and that in very procrastinating ways. Accepting His love is our choice – but not choosing is also making a choice – against the love of God. ec

Since I didn't understand the question, I can hardly wait for the answer. I must be tired.

Thanks for the comment. A friend already emailed me that her dad won't turn on the dratted computer unless someone is there to hold his hand.

Obviously, that doesn't apply to you.

Did you write that yourself? How confusing, but FUN!!!! And you're right, not choosing is choosing NOT.

There was a famous writer in England who was protesting the literature of the day, about a hundred years ago. He wrote a book similar to the style you've just done, and it became famous. In our literature class I had to do a paper about the book, but I couldn't understand the book. But, I wrote the paper anyway, and got an A.....oddly, I can't remember the book, the course, the teacher, the significant issues of the day, what I wore to class, who sat next to me....but, life is like that, as you've just indicated. I do remember that I had a deep love for God in my heart. I remember that.

granny - The problem with questions is that sometimes the answer is another question. :)

merle - It was just a fun write for me that doesn't necessarily make a lot of sense - except at the end.

jayleigh - The last part of this came to me while running an errand last night and it came so forcefully that it was sobering indeed.

bonita - Methinks that you remembered the very best part - Gods love and our love for Him is always the best of life. ec
