Freaky on Friday: Post Apocalypse

I can’t say I was totally freaked out by the announcement the world was going to end on May 21, 2011 at six o’clock, by time zone no less. But. It was a little freaky.

Just a niggle in the back of the brain. I joked saying I just wanted to be sure my hair and teeth were brushed by six, just in case. You know what? Six o’clock came and went and I forgot to notice. As apocalypses go this one was ho-hum.

But Angela you ask, don’t you believe? Well yeah but the Bible makes it clear no one but God knows the date and I know of no reason to believe that David Camping has been more blessed than the rest of us.

You know I actually felt sorry for the dude. I thought at least he has the conviction to stand up for what he believes in and put his reputation on the line. How many people are willing to do that? To literally put their money where their mouth is? Not many. But then he went and opened his mouth again.

Yep. The apocalypse was spiritual and is taking place now. It will end in a physical apocalypse on October 21, 2011. No time given as of yet but he has advised we will be consumed in a fireball. The idea of being consumed in a fireball does freak me out a little. Maybe that’s the point.

Resurrection

The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances.  ~Robert Flat

Resurrection means rising from the dead or the revival of something old or unused. It can also mean recovery.

We are taught Christ died to save us from our sins. I am thankful for this sacrifice but there is more to it than that. His death and rising teaches that when you touch the bottom of life you can push-off and reach the surface again.  In the midst of such horror and despair there is positivity.

The little Chinese Water Dragon had its own resurrection this week so I think it appropriate to talk about it on today of all days. I don’t think God will mind.

When Tracey asked me if we could take the little dragon the key phrase she used was “Jane doesn’t have the money to feed her anymore.” Jane is not her real name but it’ll do. I knew there might be problems but I was totally unprepared for what came through my front door.
