2012 is almost here!

November 8, 2011

I got my first look at a 2012 calendar the other day and, to my surprise, it went right up to December 31st!  I checked every day in December and nowhere did I see a notation that indicated the “End of the World”.  Then I realized that I was looking at “my” calendar and not a “Mayan calendar.”  My bad.
In case you missed the subtle attempt at humour, according to some, December 21st, 2012, marks the end of the 5,125-year cycle of the Mayan calendar.  So, what does that mean to us a year away?  Well, depends on where you stand. For some it is indicative of a variety of doomsday scenarios, while others feel the cycle will just begin all over.  I think they just didn’t get to the drugstore to pick up their new calendar.  
And while we can make light of it, there will be many who take it very serious and want to make plans for the finale.  While the Bible does tell us that this old world does have a “best before date” it also tells us that “today is the day of salvation.”  And if you take care of that today you won’t have to worry about what’s in store for December 21st 2012.
  
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
