Stormy weather

Sandy, the hurricane, ripped up my beloved Jersey Shore. A friend of my son's boss said her beach house was gone. Totally disappeared into the sea.
Not even a wooden board left as a memento!
As we come to that infamous date 12/21/12 I think we are all noticing some tumult and chaos in our lives and relationships, and certainly the news has been a bit horrific, and worth not paying as much attention to as we are tempted to do.
I am considering all this in my journal, exploring it, separating myself a bit from the chaos, and trying to let the storm blow over.

  1. Since you asked, I feel compelled to offer my insight... whether you believe in the Bible or not, I do. As the Bible does say that ""No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father." Matthew 24:36. That, and the fact that "the end" has been prophesied and predicted many times before, and each time, we all wake up the next day :) I personally believe that, since we don't know when it will "all end", we should live every day as if it is our last, showing love and being at peace, because there is nothing we can do to stop it. We can, however, change how we live today :)
    Perhaps I need to spend less time on the computer and more time in my journal, on that note! LOL :)
