Worries

The last two Oprah shows have been on what Americans should be worried about. I have heard talk on the radio about this because of the Oprah show. The two shows were on terrorism and the Bird Flu or some other epidemic. How are you living your life? Are you worried about something? Are you watching out for something? I think the End Times are near...just don't know how near.

I saw that about the bird flu on Oprah yesterday. Jaime came in about 4:20 and we got to talking and I missed the rest. But it's dvr'ed so I'm going to watch it. Definitely scary. There are SO many things that are looming. There was an article in the paper yesterday about how the streptococcus virus is mutating and is becoming more and more resistant to Penicillin and Amoxicillin. So now a simple strep could REALLY be serious. And the staph virus isn't responding to antibiotics like it used to. I can remember Mama (grandmother) talking about the flu epidemic of 1918. That was the year she had her twins and a close friend of hers also had twins just a month or so older than Nana and Bubba and she died, leaving twin babies. Millions died that year. According to that guy on Oprah, AIDS is nothing compared to what the bird flu could be. With terrorism looming and all, I really feel like something catastrophic is bound to happen. And yes, I think the end is near. Relatively speaking. 50 years or so. Tim is saying 5. Who knows? All I know is I'm glad there's something better awaiting us. There won't be any disease or evil then. I know this is depressing to someone 26 years old with so much to look forward to, but to this ole lady, I know our eternal life is going to so outshine anything we could think or imagine, I'm at peace with it. So, I say just enjoy the present and do what you can to stay safe. And lay up your treasures above!
