Bible prophecy coming true?

Posted in religion, Spirituality, Thoughts on February 28, 2010 by maryrestaino

 Matthew 24

4Jesus told them, “Don’t let anyone mislead you, 5for many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah.’ They will deceive many. 6And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately. 7Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world. 8But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.


Guess what I forgot?

Both my husband and I went out last night before the snow started, so we wouldn’t have to go out today. We got everything that we needed – except the toilet paper. So I went out this morning and brushed off my car for a trip to my local store. Currently, it is 34 degrees and the snow is still falling as I type this. Driving conditions near my home are good.

It wasn’t so bad, after all

We heard so much about the snow fall that was supposed to slam the Northeast Saturday. Long Island didn’t get too much, though. I took these photographs by Smith Point just before noon.

 Reports say the temperature is 29 degrees, but by the water it usually feels colder.

Another beautiful day on Long Island

It is another beautiful day on Long Island, but oh so cold. Weather Channel reports the temperature to currently be 30 degrees. The forecast says clouds today, and threatens snow tomorrow. I don’t think you can tell in these photos, taken after Sunrise this morning at approximately 7:45 am.

How do you get your teen to clean his/her room?

A source of contention between my daughter and her father and I:

If we don’t do something soon, she will earn a place on the show “Hoarders”. Just kidding, but I’m going to see if I can help organize her things while she’s at school today. Clearly, she’s overwhelmed.
