The End of the World

December 21, 2012…the world ends!

On that Friday, eleven days from today, the world will self destruct and humanity will exist no more. Except…

I suppose a remnant will remain (God always keeps a remnant, right?). If I’m blessed to be included in the remnant, then when I wake up on December 22, here’s my hope:
I hope that donuts, cake, pie, and egg nog ice cream no longer have calories;
I hope there is no more waiting in line especially at Wal-Mart or the bank;
I hope my hair is automatically self-cleaning;
I hope my acne clears up permanently;
I hope there are no more red light cameras;
In fact, I hope there’s no more traffic, period!

I’m being silly, of course. I don’t believe the world will end on December 21. I do, however, believe there will be a great spiritual shift as humanity leapfrogs to a higher level relationship with God.

Can you imagine a world where:
People are incapable of hurting (intentionally or not) one another;
Crime and injustice are no more;
All people are treated as equals regardless of… (skin color, background, national origin, etc.–you fill in the blank);
Tranquility and harmony reside at all times;
There is no lack and all people are free.

Oh, wait! Did I just paraphrase the Constitution of the United States? Oops! So maybe we do need the world to end for another chance at getting it right. What do you think?

  1. I love this!! It would be wonderful if everyone respected and treated each other as they themselves would want to be treated. What joy and laughter would fill the air. But that is too easy because mankind cannot embrace the simple task of giving a smile. We tend to think it is easier to be mean. Man knows not the day nor the hour in which the world ends. Not even the angels know. Why not give a smile til then!!

    • thank God, no one knows but the Father! i think we would all go crazy trying to do everything under the sun and some. but what a wonderful world it would be here on earth if all the ugly things we do and say no longer existed!
