If The World Ended

So as you know, the world is ending.

Some say really really soon.

Some say later.

Either way, people handle crazy stuff in different ways.  Ignore it, make fun of it, take it seriously and go into their underground forts.

Me?  I guess if I had a fort, I might go into it...just in case.  But I don't have a fort.  So.....getting on with it...

Stuff like this causes me to reflect.  Take inventory of what I have and what I believe.

So here we are.

I believe in the God of Israel and in Jesus his son.  I believe in His love for us.  And I trust what the bible says in Matthew 24:36 NIV "But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."

So the end most likely will not happen on the 21st.  But it could happen on the 22nd!

Anyway, that's not the point of this post.

The point is if the world ended...if I died tomorrow, I have much to be thankful for.

I have a wife who loves me and believes in me.  She sees things in me that no one else sees and somehow brings it out of me.  She is strong and passionate.  She is kind and tender hearted.  When she dances...when I think of her dancing, the world slows down for those few short minutes.  I feel like angels stop to watch her.  And I am so blessed...lucky to have her.

I have two children who mean the world to me.  As I see them growing, I marvel at the miracle that they are.  That only a few years ago, they were not even here.  They were a hope...they were a dream my wife and I had...and now they are here...more incredible than we could have ever imagined.  When they smile and laugh it is magic.  They try to dance like their mother...and that is magic, too.

I have a lot more to be thankful for.  For family and friends, for being able to see the world beyond the US and for seeing that as bad as we think our problems are, it cannot compare to what others face daily.

So when the end comes...
...when ever it comes...
I can at least say that I've lived a good life and I am blessed.

See you tomorrow!
