Sometimes God puts us in the Dark to Show He is the Light Shirt
Sometimes God puts us in the dark to demonstrate that he is the light T-Shirt. A young lady working in her chemistry lab out in her spare time noticed that one of her assignments was to make carbon monoxide gas appear as if it were the odor of fresh baked bread. She could not multiply single-digit numbers with the help of a hydrogen atom in the lab. She could not tell the difference between an hexagonal carbon point and a octagonal carbon point, an incredibly important skill in organic chemistry indeed. It was an experience that awakened in her an abiding interest in how things worked, and she would spend the next several years mastering the concepts of bonding and polarizing compounds, earning a Ph.D. from a school known for offering educational tours on science and engineering topics.
In her quest to perfect bonding techniques she began to make wools and wool sweaters out of the simpler compounds known to man. One day she put her woolwear making efforts to the test when she put a shirt made of polyester batting inside a refrigerator unit full of water. The liquid would not rise to the top, for some reason, no matter how many times she wrung it. Then she pulled it off and found that the air had trapped some of the stitched panels, closing off the rest of the complex garment. She wondered if she should be studying the properties of polyester fibers or the mysteries of the human body; she had put a shirt on an experimental subject.
The truth was that she was looking at the wrong thing; the hoodie was not an appropriate shirt for an outdoor adventure. It was cold and wet and slippery and the temperature fluctuated; this was not the appropriate environment for a wool sweater or hoodie. Though it may have been a simple mistake, she missed out on the chance to learn that she can use the shirt to her advantage, to make the damp and slippery conditions we find walking on through the woods an advantage rather than an inconvenience.
