but the end is not yet. [Still before the Rapture and the 'Apocalypse']
For nation [ethnic group] will rise against nation [ethnic group],
and kingdom [country] against kingdom [country] . . .
All these are the beginning of sorrows [actual translation is "birth pangs"]
[As with "birth pangs" they will grow closer]
The world is so not the same as it was 50 years ago, its amazing how much can change in the span of even just 10 years..
sometimes it makes me wanna wish for me to be a teen in the 1960's in another country of course, but that's apparently not the case.. a girl can dream, can't she?! how nice to be a part of the Woodstock and hippies generation..
now, things are so different... It's global warming people and judging from the signs, I don't think we can ever stop global warming but we can lengthen the life of the earth if we really work hand in hand I guess. As what our pastor said: "It's harvest time".. look at the signs, there are wars starting in some parts of the world, bloodcurdling catastrophes coming out of the blue..
But I guess I'm not really afraid to say that I can look at death straight to the eye with a grin on my face. I don't mind dying, for me, It's actually beautiful and peaceful. But if you ask me the question "are you ready to die?" 10 yrs from now, I don't think I'd be able to say the same thing. By then, I'd probably have a family and leaving them would be such a hard thing to do. But for now, I can bravely say that I'm not afraid of you little death...
Life is really too short, don't live life too seriously because well, no one gets out alive anyways. I can gladly say that I have a new mantra:"Live life to the fullest, no regrets!" yeah! Always give your 110% and always pour your heart out in everything especially on things you love to do.. I always try to put that in my head when I always want to do something that I haven't done before.. positivism people, and surrounding yourself with positive people also helps.. It's good for the soul and it gives you that positive aura.. amaaazing!
