Well it’s here – it’s the end of the world as we know it.
However there’s a lot of good news. For one, people are moving closer together, even as we’re pushing farther apart, if that makes any sense.
We get so much of our stuff from foreign sources, and that’s gonna contract. The lines of communication, and the things we purchase, and how far we have to bring them to our tables and so forth…. That’s gonna get shorter too; and I think that everybody, no matter where you’re at, you can start some kind of garden. It’s one of the most rewarding things you’ll ever find – producing a food that you enjoy eating right there on your windowsill, or in your backyard, or if you have some land, out there too.
It’s mid-March. Now’s the time to be doing this anyway.
There are a lot of reasons to be hopeful. The world is changing, but that doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world.
Do the things that you’ve been wanting to do anyway.
I’ve got tremendous hope, and all we have to do is do right.
Tomorrow is going to happen. Yesterday happened. And the only thing that I had the power to change whatsoever, is just in my head and in my heart at this moment.
And I’m not afraid.
The Scriptures talk all about this. Today is the 16th, and for me that means it’s Proverbs 16 (that’s what I read. Tomorrow I’ll read Proverbs 17.) But one thing really caught me today: that if you commit your works to the LORD, your thoughts will be established.
And all of us have a lot of thoughts right now. And me, like everybody else, woke up this morning going, “okay, what’s the next bad news?” But I committed this project to the LORD, and so he helped me organize my thoughts.
And the world isn’t so dark. As a matter of fact, the world is extraordinarily bright this morning.
It’s almost Spring. And that’s good news.
Have a great Monday. It’ll be gone before you know it.
