What is going on? Is it just me that feels there's an awful lot of devastation around us. For me, lately, it started with the young Luge guy at the Olympics dying. A skater lost her mom to a massive heart attack, just 2-days before she had to skate. Now earthquakes and Tsunamis. It just said on the news that Japan may get what we thought Hawaii would experience. USA was lucky.
I heard that Argentina had an earthquake as well as Chili.
I feel so bad for the families of those who died. The Luger's parents probably said, 'Good luck, have fun, see you when you come home, with or without a medal'. Never did they think their son would come home in a coffin.
The ice skater probably had plans to have dinner with her parents, maybe shopping, seeing the other events at the Olympics. Seeing her parents in the stand after she skates. But no, just her dad. Her mom was just 55 years old. I cried through her routine.
My heart breaks for family and friends.
God is still trying to get our attention, 'Pull your life together before it is too late'.
They've been saying, for a long time, that we are living in the end times. Someday the Rapture will come and all the saved in Jesus will go home to be with him.
As a Christian, I do believe that Jesus is God's son. By believing and confessing we will be saved and go to heaven when we die.
I know, some people don't believe that, but if I am.....where will you be when you die? Don't need to answer. Just blogging my thoughts.
Most of the stories in the news haven't been exactly uplifting, have they?
