I had a busy week and have missed talking with you guys. I'm glad to be back. JD did well in my absence in the continued debate about "where we get the idea of right and wrong" from?
Any ways, the kids are away in San Antonio visiting relatives. Me and the Mrs. are "Home Alone". I'd mentioned how my Pastor showed a clip of the movie "2012" at church a couple weeks ago. So last night after I took my wife to one of the finer eateries in town, we stopped at one of those vending machines that rents dvd's.
We got the movie "2012". I'm very hard to please when it comes to movies, so don't take my advice, but this movie was average at best. If you haven't seen it, rent something else?
The movie is about the how the Mayans predicted the end of the world to be on 12/21/2012. Some people knew this was really gonna happen and were making plans to avoid it. (if that would be possible) It got me thinking about King Hezekiah. Hezekiah was a good King in the days of Isaiah the Prophet. He was real sick, the Lord told Isaiah to tell Hezekiah to get his "house in order" because he was gonna die. The King didn't wanna die, so he prayed to God. God thought it over and then told Isaiah to go tell the King he was gonna give Hezekiah 15 more years to live.
This brings up 2 questions. #1. Would you want to know the exact date you were gonna die? And #2. If you knew the exact date you were gonna die, what would you do to get your "house in order"?
