Thar She Blows!

Explosives have many applications.

They can be used in warfare,

Or for constructive purposes.

One important thing to remember about them is that once detonated,

That’s it, no changing one’s mind.

A controlled, skilled, well calculated detonation can bring down an entire tall building

Collapsing upon itself without damaging any surrounding property.

This requires expertise and skill.

And from that site after the rubble is removed something new.

No one builds a new building atop an old one.

How can there be room to add to a cup already full?

Why that would be like putting new wine in old wine skins…capische’?

Fireworks displays are beautiful to see and can be quite harmless if the proper precautions are taken.

Sometimes fireworks can be quite stimulating…no?

Explosives have been very useful in carving tunnels through mountains achieving the most efficient and direct routes for road and railways.

Some explosives such as nitroglycerin can be extremely “unstable” and require great care in handling.

I find it most interesting that something “unstable” can be the catalyst to obtain a stable result.

How many tunnels do we pass through?

How many mountains have been carved away in the name of connectedness and progress.

Can God make use of the instability of some of us to effect changes in others according to His plan and purpose.

I already know the answer to that question as I am living proof that He can and does as He wills.

But I thought I’d just put that out there…to ponder?

(This knowledge was not come by easily but at a great cost and well worth it.

Methods always come into question, but one can pose no arguments as to the positive results.   

What I love most about crossword puzzles is how they help to exercise my mind into thinking outside of the box for all possibilities. For an ex.:
one of the clues on a recent crossword was “opens a window_ _ _ _” I thought of slides, cranks as in a handle, pushes, pulls, lifts? The answer was “airs” hadn’t even considered that one. All the wrong assumptions were instantaneous and would not fit into the space provided, not even with a shoe horn. buuuut the one right answer took time to figure out.)
