Yesterday around 2:00 pm I had to take some pain medicine for my shoulder. Being a hypochondriac is no fun!! About two minutes after I took the medicine my chair started to shake. I felt my pulse, thinking maybe the medicine was causing some weird reaction. I know I’m weird. When that was OK I went upstairs to ask Julie if she was banging anything. Then I found out we had an earthquake. Most of you on the East Coast of the United States felt it yesterday as it was shallow but widespread. It was felt from Ohio to the Carolinas to the Northeast.
As I was studying for today’s lesson on heaven I was thinking about how large an area we are talking about for everyone to feel this tremor at the same time. I mean REALLY, this is a huge area for it all to happen at the same time. God can choose to shake anyone or anything at anytime.
