The Pacific Northwest is doing it's part to show that weather happens and it doesn't mean the sky is falling. Chicken Little had nothing on the news media, that's for sure. I am all for recycling and not wasting the resources of the earth, taking care and being responsible. However, it seems to me that people fall on one side of the argument or the other -- either we believe God is real and we can count on him to take care of us and watch over us, or we think we are inhabitants of a random, impersonal cosmic mutation that can disappear as easily as it showed up. After all the hype of global warming, now changed to "climate change" to take in any variation, we've enjoyed 4 and 3/4 inches of frozen rain during our spring. I opt for God having a sense of humor when it comes to weather. In 1919, I read yesterday in a letter from my great-uncle, Montana "burned up" -- it was so hot all the crops died and there was no work for his friend who joined him in North Dakota to thresh. Weather is weather and we can always count on it to change. And people are being diagnosed with eco-anxiety. I opt for trust in the Lord. Attached are visions of global warming in Seattle area on April 17, 2008 :-).
