Something seems to be going on in our world. In the US, weather is attacking the country in forms of tornadoes and floods in areas that are not accustomed to dealing with those kinds of conditions. (Here it is June and some of the mountain areas are still having snow when they have usually moved on from that winter air.) Europe has their own issues with a new strain of E. coli brought on by vegetation. Even rats have tried to flee land by taking to an airplane in Australia.
Are we simply becoming so disruptive in our lives and what we do that we are changing the course of nature or is the earth at the point of screaming at us to lighten up on the fast paced technology and remember the basics of land and water?
For those that believe, some may think God is being vengeful, but I don't happen to think He acts in that manner. (However, I do find it odd that just two weeks ago the world was mocking the end of times.)
Whatever the reason may be, we should remember this globe we live on is always shifting and changing and we as humans are just small pieces that are allowed to take up space on it. When you are faced with a whirling wind coming towards you or the ground opening up in a huge sinkhole - sometimes there isn't much one can do no matter how much money you make, the kind of car you drive, or the latest smart phone you own: none of that can stand up against the power of Mother nature.
