Historic Storm – Does It Mean Anything?

posted by Ruth Graham

Wow! We are being hit with an historic storm of major proportions. Apocalyptic? That word has been used. It is an important question to ask.

What is going on?

Have we ever seen so many troubling things at one time? Everything is in “historic proportions”. Earthquakes. Epidemics. New diseases, old ones returning. Greed and corruption. Storms. Floods. Financial crises. Famine. Disputes and quarrels. Wars. Terrorism. Disintegration of morals and families. An proliferation of war making machines. Lack of absolutes and truth. 

Yes, some of this has happened all through the ages but when all these things seem to happen together at the same time we need to take heed. Read Matthew chapter 24. It is very insightful.

Different Kind of Resolutions
I think I have mentioned before that I do not make resolutions. I rarely am able to keep them - often I don't remember them by month's end. My intentions are good but resolutions become a source of defeat for me reminding me of my weaknesses. So I decided to give them up! That does not mean I let

What Good is Christmas?
This is Christmas week. There is an excitement and an anticipation. Strangers greet each other cheerily. Family travels great distances to be together. Lights glitter from windows.
