Breathe Deep

image courtesy universe-beauty.comStriker’s civics class discussed the rapture today.  If that’s not a sign of how this story has blown up, I don’t know what is.  As I told you yesterday, the whole subject is a little post-traumatic-stressy for me.  I’ll be glad when it’s behind us. In the meantime I’m just focusing on the God I know, as opposed to the God Harold Camping is proclaiming to the world.  He is loving, and gracious, and present with me in my joys and troubles.   Opening myself up to Him is as simple as breathing.
