The quaked caught me off guard because it was totally unexpected and I prayed that it would be over soon and hoped there won't be an aftermath after that. I did not went back to sleep after the earthquake and waited for an hour before I can sleep.
I know, I was being paranoid but after what happened in Japan, it made me really uneasy that we should always expect the unexpected. Maybe it's a wake up call for us that we should take care of the earth more. We're not being a good steward of tour homelands :(
Th earth is changing.. can't you feel it? The sudden change of the weather and can't you feel the scourging heat from the sun is getting hotter? And on top of that there are some "seers" claiming to predict the end of the world. The earth is deteriorating, and we have crazy people out there and all we care about is money.
I think the most important thing that we should care about is to be a good children to our Father, taking care of the earth and just be a true human being. :)
