The back deck is matted with the last remains of decomposing leaves that have been caught up in the tree branches. In the garden raised beds sit empty but for their rain soaked soil. All is gloomy and dreary.
I feel terribly selfish even writing of these trivial things when we all know what is happening this very moment in the southeast. Hubby and I were just tunned into the weather channel and were stunned to see that the tornado's are still raging and taking lives. My heart is saddened for so many that have been hurt by this terrible disaster that has taken place over the past few days. Some folks have lost homes, their jobs and loved ones. I can only imagine what they are feeling.
This is an incredible time in history I feel. I know there have always been natural disasters but not to this magnitude. I truly feel something has changed, something we need to get ready for. Prophets for years have been foretelling what would happen at the end of times. Perhaps we are getting closer to those times.
If it is true one but can wonder what will happen and what will come after. No matter what your beliefs we know we are souls with bodies and not the other way around. So our life will go one even if there is no earth any longer or even if it has radically changed. We will live on. We all have our own idea's about what that life will be and what it will entail. But we as a human race have hope that there is something so much more. A universe that will filled with love and peace for all and we can find our true home once again. It has been said we are but mortal men but oh I think we are so much more and have been since the day our creation.
So no matter where the day finds you and no matter what it hands you never give up your faith. Faith that life is good and goes on in some manner unbeknown to us at this time. I know the time will come and we will know where we came from, why we are here and where we are going and we will be shown we are all one in the same.
Well my thoughts for the day but one cannot help but to think of these things especially in light of what is going on in the world today.
