Well, it's the morning after 6/6/06. The devil didn't show up. The end of the world did not happen. So now you know that God doesn't follow the human calender, nor does he pay attention to doomsayers who predict the end of the world at the drop of a hat. A red sky at night does not mean "Harmageddon", nor does a red moon indicate that Jesus is floating somewhere above us, trying to decide the best moment to appear, so as to take us by surprise.

In case you missed it, we are still here.

Hope that's not too much of a letdown for you, but I say, maybe now it's time to live the free life Christ gave to us, rather than waiting for the end of the world to come. Maybe today is the day you realize that there just might be a heck of a lot of time left in your life. Maybe today you'll realize you DO have time enough to accomplish everything you wanted to. Maybe today you'll actually make plans for the future again.

In case you weren't vaguely hoping something would happen to the world during the twenty-four hours of "hell", congratulations; you weren't let down. Now let's move on to the reason we are still here, and in case we haven't figured that reason out, don't worry, we still have time to do so.

But let us learn one lesson. Let us learn that dates and numbers mean nothing to God. He is not bound by our calender; nor is he subject to "signs" lining up in every direction. He remains at work even today, and nothing will stop him. He wasn't worried yesterday, and he wasn't concerned about the "devil worshippers" throwing parties. I am actually pretty sure he loves them, too.

Hug a devil worshipper today, if you can find one. We all need a little love every once in a while. Even those who don't believe in the God that we do. Share the love of Christ; that's what it's there for.

Until the next Doomsday, try to remember that all the time in the world we have is only useful if we finally realize we don't have to wait for the end of the world. It's only useful if we actually use it.

Peace out.
