Calm of Night: I recently used the restroom and rather than pee all over my self, I open the door and began to wiz in the dark. As I did it worried me that someone else might enter the bathroom, so I closed the door without turning on the light because it was out of reach. To my surprise one of the first things to come to mind was hell. The darkness often reminds me of hell and what gloomy dungeons await the unfaithful. In the moment I imagined what it must be like to live with everything you currently hold dear in your heart. And I wondered if I were to have to wait in a dark place at a prison, could I be happy or content in my own mind? So I closed my eyes and began to ponder on what was in me. Are there beautiful reflections and memories so immense in my heart that they can overwhelm regret and grief if so for how long? Could I replenish joy and happiness repeatedly for days and years in my heart to keep remorse and anger from drowning me in tears? The Bible often describes hell as a place of weeping and gnashing of teeth. These behaviors lead me to wonder on what causes them in life. And upon reflection, anger of I remember correctly makes you bite your teeth hard and want to cry out of anger. So, to make a long story short I wonder what happens to a man that no longer has an agenda to reflect upon and distract him after he lays down for the nite. If he is left to his own mind and thoughts for all eternity, what might he find there and will it be a wonderful place to live out eternity? See for yourself if what I’m explaining is true. After you close your eyes, what comes to mind and what kinds of memories grip you? Are you happy being alone or does the calm of nites leave you restless?
