Your post is very thought provoking. Thank you. Let me ask you this; if you had a chance to prepare-to-survive an imminent and immanent event, would
you? Let's say we knew a 19.5 earthquake was about to occur. Would you dig the trenches or hike a mountain to escape the tsunami?
When do you suppose someone knows when their time is up opposed to being unmotivated?
Because I've thought about this a lot lately. And I don't think I want to 'try to' survive an impending disaster.. I think life should be
relatively easy. Not a 'survival of the fittest' scenario because quite frankly, I don't believe I signed up for that course.
Curious to hear your opinion. Thanks
If I knew my area was going to be hit by a Mega Quake I would live every second as if it was my last. I would hold onto my children and make them
laugh and we would talk about the deepest of stuff because I love making them think for them self.
But....after losing a child to Leukemia I already live this way. Every day is a "new" beginning and the next day or even the next second of my
breath or my children's is not promised.
I have come to the conclusion that I know a lot about nothing and a lot about everything but what I know I don't know I will not even try to act like
I do know.
Reality to me is based on my perception of everything around me. I know that I cannot see everything nor hear everything that is around me. I know I
live on a Planet that spins at a very rapid rate. It is all mythical and mysterious and frankly that part..I love! I do not love how all the people
are so divided. This is reality though.
Or is it?
At the end of the day I rely on the words of the Bible. This for me is the only truth at the end of the day (for me). Am I to worry about tomorrow?
The Bible says No. Am I to worry I will not "live" any more? No....the Bible says look at Jesus....he rose after the third day and he went back home
and He said there are many mansions....he is going to prepare a place and where he is ...I will be. The Bible also says there will be trying times and
people will be praying for death and it will not come. This tells me there may come a time when I have cancer....or it may be a time when I will be
involved in such a catastrophe that I will wish I would have died.
At the end of the day I am on the fence as an observer. I will not fret what I do not know. I will await my destiny and all the while live like there
is no tomorrow. This is what the Bible tells me to do and I think it is the best advice.
