The period of time now occurring. This is my biggest concern in the world. This tops even my family and friends. How can that be, you think? Although I don’t see my kids daily, I raised them to know right from wrong. I love them and they know it. I believe they are healthy in mind. Each of my children are great adults with beautiful kids and my kids are awesome parents. This is fact.

The things going on in our world that are occurring today as I speak scare me. I know the Bible states that Satan will thrive. People will turn from him.  I know that he counts on his followers to spread his word, to set Godly examples, to love one another. I know God is weeping as he sees the beautiful earth turn black.

At the precise moment, within a blink of an eye, I believe he will return. He will rescue me from the killings, drugs, and all other tragedies of this world. I pray every day for people to hear God speak to them. I pray for peace and healing of our country and our government.

I see all kinds of comments made on my Facebook about the Florida school shooting. Everyone has their opinions about the gun control. I do not have the answers nor do I state to anyone that I do. I know God has the answers. If we could come together and hold hands and pray, we shall see the answers to our questions.

Until that time arrives, I cringe, I cry at what is occurring within the big, blue marble called earth.
