By Brad Campbell –
Today something will happen that a lot of folks have never seen before – a solar eclipse. The moon will move between the earth and the sun, blocking the sunlight for a little while. You’ve no doubt heard all the hype, and perhaps you have special equipment with which to view the show today, but I do not. So, alas, there will be no photo of the eclipse for me to share. However, here’s a shot of a beautiful full moon from a while back, so that you get the idea (lol).
Glasses have been given away or sold in many locations. School children are being turned out early today. I have even heard folks saying they were planning to stay inside and stay away from the eclipse. People are hiding their pets and making arrangements to bring them inside. It’s as if the year 2000 is hitting again and folks are scared of what might happen.
As preposterous as all of this sounds, sadly it’s true. And yet when is the last time you looked with this much enthusiasm at the returning of Christ? If we truly were as prepared to meet Him as we seem to be prepared for the eclipse today, the world would be a much better place.
Live today (and every day) to its fullest. But, don’t let the hype of the world and its activities eclipse the real news. He’s coming back. And we better get ready!
