Near Miss

There’s been some interesting things happening lately. A major earthquake in Nevada, tornadoes in February and asteroids zinging past our planet. A couple of asteroids passed by us passing closer than the Moon and so were, for a while, influenced by the earth’s gravity to some degree. As our solar system gets closer and closer to the center axis of our galaxy, the “Milky Way”, i would expect to see lots of debris of this sort entering into our solar system. The Bible speaks of a day in the future when a “star” would fall from the sky that would be called, “wormwood”. If you’ve ever seen what asteroids look like, that would be a good description.

I’ll be rythym guitar this time and during practice, last night, the sound was not bad. For some of us, it’s a chance to try to recreate some of the really fun musical things we enjoyed listening to in the old days. One of the many surprises that my Creator had for me since i’ve become a Christian. So many times, God has amazed me in the way he gives us the…
