Last year, spring time was a time of unusual dryness. This year, it is totally the opposite. An unusual volume of water has left parking lots flooded, marshes overflowing, and trees appearing to be growing out of Lake Ontario.
The change in our local landscape is very evident, due to the volume of water that we received recently.
Many layers we have to beauty
Though partially unraveled and destroyed
By the wind,
Yet, another layer of artistry is revealed.
For a few years now Cranberry Marsh has been one of my favorite places to visit. It’s a very tranquil setting for man and for animals.
Many of the migrating birds use this as a rest stop as they head south, and then back north again.
Last year we watched in horror as our marsh turned into a meadow. It is now devoid of water fowl and birds. We are praying for rain and a return of bird as we hope that our marsh does not turn into an arid waste land. Things are truly changing as this earth heats up.
Weather Forecasting Christians
For the past few hours I’ve been watching the Weather Forecasters bring their reports on Hurricane Matthew. Some of them unexpectedly end up in harm’s way as they try to send messages as to where to go, and where not to go; these are messages that could save many lives, if the people are sensible and heed their warnings.
God’s End Time Christians are to be like Weather Forecasters. We should be on the front lines, sending messages and warnings to the unbelievers of the impending events that are about to happen, letting them know that they need to get under the banner of protection of Gods Love, so that they may be saved. Hurricane Matthew is one of the worse storms in recent times, they say, but though the world classifies a lot of the storms due to Global Warming, the Bible tells us that there will be storms (famines and earthquakes) and as time goes on they will worsen.
Mark 13: 8 ……There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains.
