Something Bigger

What is going on??

I find myself pondering that question a lot lately. What in the world is going on?

Crime rates are skyrocketing.
We are battling Iraq and terrorists in Afghanistan.
N. Korea is wiggin' out.
Israel is battling Lebanon.
Contrary to it's name, the UNITED States is not United.
Half the world hates America.
The other half hates the rest of the world.

I dunno... Scary times that we are livin'. Are we on the brink of WWIII -- or something bigger? I dunno. WWIII would be a terrifying thing to live through -- if it were possible to live through a WW with the nukes and all that we have now.

I've only seen images of war from history lessons and from the news. I've not seen anything like that up close and personal. The closest thing (and it's really no comparison) that I can say I've seen is hurricane Charlie that devastated FL while we were there.

I don't want to see war up close and personal. I wish no one had to see it. BUT, I'm not trembling in my seat or anything -- yet. I'm just watching with anticipation (NOT ANXIETY) the events of the world unfold around me. Much better than any movie, but a lot less entertaining.

As far as the "something bigger," I have no idea when "that" will happen. In Bible times, they thought the "something bigger" was coming soon. They were obviously wrong.

I can't say that I have formed an opinion as to when the rapture will take place -- pre, mid, or post-tribulation. I can't say that I think it's all that important to dwell on either. I know that at some point I will be raptured. Whether that's prior to any tribulation or right smack dab in the middle of it doesn't matter a hill of beans. That is, of course, if I TRULY believe that God will be with me during even the most trying of circumstances.

As for now... I'm just watching and waiting for that "something bigger." I'm just a little more anxious for the "something bigger" than I am for WWIII.

Bev, I've always kinda chuckled at those people who were all like "the end is near" but I tell ya, I'm right there with them right now. I just feel so down about the situation in the world...I do feel like WW3 is on the verge of happening. I will always side with Israel though....

Anyhow, I have been at the coast and haven't been able to read blogs like I would like to do so I'm catchin' up on yours. I put a recipe on my blog today, I missed Succulent Sunday.

Hope you and Eddie boy are doing well.

While I am ready for the rapture---I would like to see my children grow up and have all the things a child should get to see and do. I battle with that.
