Three Muses Challenge: Mail Art

This week's theme at *The Three Muses Challenge is mail art. It's my first time participating in their challenge! The Three Muses post a new challenge every Wednesday.

So, I've been contemplating this wild journey we're on called life. Do you do that sometimes? Well, I decided to write & "mail" a letter to God. Yes! The Alpha and the Omega...

                                                                                                        Creation of Adam /Michelangelo/Sistine Chapel  (Erzalibillas photo)

Here is my 10" x 13" envelope:

I am mailing it to "The Man Upstairs":



Here is my letter:

Dear God,
I have so many questions for you! I guess you're probably used to that, huh? I might even give you a headache (smile). But first, let me start with:

How are you doing today? 
How is your day? 
Do you ever have bad days? 
If so, who do you turn to when you're down?
Do you ever get bored?
Do you ever get s-i-c-k of your creation called the human race?
Okay, STOP! I guess I should have built up to that one. And did I warn you that you may want a bottle of aspirin & a glass of water close-at-hand (smile)? 

I have so many questions. I'm just going to rattle them off-the-top-of-my-head... Thank you for indulging me. 

Here's more :P  :
The universe is so vast, is there human life on other planets?

As someone who is allergic to flea bites, are fleas really necessary on this Earth? What about cockroaches? Can't we get rid of them?

Although monetary wealth doesn't determine happiness, why are some people born into poverty and others born with riches?  
 
When we die do we go straight to heaven, or must we wait for Judgement Day? I'm so confused about that. I may see a priest about it...

How is DAD doing? Is he keeping you company? I bet he's bending your ear every chance he gets! Picturing that really makes me happy! He was so curious about things...Does that remind you of anyone?! Please give him my love, and tell him that I'm looking after Mom (like I promised). We're all trying to do that...

Well, I guess I should stop for now...but, Lord, I have so much that I want to know. It's hard to wait patiently for answers. I just want you to come down from HEAVEN and make the mysteries of life known to all of us ... and ease everyone's suffering --- TODAY. But, you know what? I realize I don't know everything - - - - I just want to! I'm glad that you're in charge, and I'm not. You know so much more than I do...

I hope we can keep talking like this, and that you don't mind me being honest. Thank you for listening.
Love,
Tiffany

What would you ask God if you had the chance?

Hello Tiffany, what a unique envelope. I really love it. It is very inspiring and the thoughts behind provoke thoughts within me. Is it this what art is for? Thank you for your inspiration and openness!

Tiffany said...

Wow...
"Three Muses" friends, thanks so much for your kind comments! I'm so glad that I had time to participate in the challenge. I've been meaning to join in on the fun for quite a while now.

I am out of town visiting my Mom, but I ran out to get some supplies so I could participate. There's nothing like a late night run to a craft store to get your juices flowing!

LOVE this posting, Tiff...it really struck a chord with me. Thanks for the food for thought...I might write my own letter to God instead of rambling on to HIM as I do.nThen, He's have my letter for reference :o)

Thanks for sharing...
