For one moment, I really believed that the world would end on Dec. 21 and my eyes were fixed on the heavens looking for signs of doom. In hindsight, I thought if there is negative planetary motion out there, destruction would have begun. Too, it was mentioned in the Bible that the second coming would be unexpected.
Where was my head?!
I guess it was the effect of watching lots of alien and doomsday videos on Youtube. And honestly, I am so glad to know that we still have some more years for personal improvements. Next year would be the year for faith enhancement. Why? Because I don’t want to go to hell when I die, which is what often crosses my mind lately.
What if I die tomorrow? What if I did not wake up at all? What if I got hit by a ten-wheeler truck? What if I trip and fell on a metal sticking out from behind? These are sad thoughts, definitely inappropriate for the merrymaking season but… I can’t help it! The Sandy Hook event is still fresh in my mind and cried while reading the stories mostly because it involved children. Kids are not my passion but in my heart I knew they have to be taken care of, not gunned down. One moment, you are hugging them, the next, you are rushing them to the emergency room.
That’s how easy life can be taken away.
Supposed the world indeed ended two days ago, I don’t know where I would be. I am not a devout Christian and I have many lapses; I have sinned many times and violated some of the ten commandments before. I don’t think I would be one of the lucky few to reach heaven but I certainly believe in one God. I may not fully believe in Christmas day but I do believe in the essence of it.
So, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone. Yep, that’s just the whole point of this post. 😀
