What’s with this Ground Hog Day? Like, who came up with this projection by an animal to tell us how much time we have until spring? I did some research and found out that the mayor of the town in Pennsylvania came up with the ideas on Feb 2 1897. Why, no one really knows.
If it had any validity, wouldn’t there be one in every town in the cold climates of Jan-Feb? I don’t know if you have ever thought of this, but has anyone calculated how many times the rodent was right? That’s what I thought. And, while we are at it, how or who set this date for checking out a shadow?
Our society probably needs something to stimulate their cold bodies in the depth of winter. After all, we have just past the date that is the most depressing day of the year for many in the northern hemisphere.
Two thousand years ago one of the disciples asked Jesus when the end was coming. He got right to the point, only God does. That’s all I need to know. Which reminds me of a line of a commercial; “Your in good hands with . . . to which I say, GOD. Most of the things that happen in our lives are directly impacted by the God who created not only everything around us, but He also created us in our mother’s womb.
So, what’s the point? The point is God is in control and we don’t have a say and we don’t have to worry about when something or other is coming or going to happen. The predictability of how the earth moves and produces the season are set by God. He knows and we don’t have to worry. The earth has been set in a predictable routine that doesn’t change all the much.
And it’s the same for our lives. We just place ourselves in His hands and leave it up to Him to get us through. Didn’t He say, He would never leave us or forsake us?
Something to think about.
