Saturday May 21, 2011 promised to be a crucial day to some people who believed a rapture would occur and save all the people who believed, leaving those who well…didn’t. As far as most of us can tell the world is still spinning on its same axis with almost all the same people who started the day (with a few good exceptions, of course, which really aren’t exceptions at all if you know the statistics). So what happened to the predictions, the people who knew they could empty their pockets of any worldly possessions? What are they now saying?
I’m curious but what I’ve been seeing more instead is the ridicule of the non-believers and skeptics and how they “mock” the idea of knowing when this rapture will take place.
Instead of mocking this I saw the non-event as a new beginning for everyone on earth. Believer or not, this is like a New World Revolution where we can celebrate life and appreciate what this earth has to offer in each of it’s unique religions, beliefs, ethnicities, etc. It’s like having a New Year’s Resolution opportunity after the Christmas chocolates have been eaten and we may or may not have continued the new lifestyle we promised ourselves months ago.
Is this a rapture? Maybe not but why not take full advantage of who surrounds us, love them for all they offer and enjoy each day to the fullest instead of harping about what didn’t come – let’s celebrate what did.
Thanks for reading and appreciating,
