INDIANA KATHY

Indiana Jones Quadrilogy Bluray

When I was growing up, I thought it would be so cool to be an archaeologist.  Imagine spending your workdays discovering unknown civilizations and peering into tombs of former kings. Later on in life, the Indiana Jones movies came out and rekindled that fire.
While my husband worked as an interpretive naturalist, he was referred to as Louisiana Paul, but that’s a whole different story.

The truth is, it can’t be nearly as romantic as it seems. I wonder what will be said about our society when archaeologists start to dig up our past. Surely they will see that we were very wasteful. They will encounter mountains of disposable items such as diapers, plastic bottles, aluminum cans, etc. Not to mention the vast amount of electronic equipment. There will be caches of cell phones, computers, i-pads, i-phones, i-patches, fax machines, printers and so on; all of which became extinct within a matter of months.

The treasures they uncover will include fake jewelry, rusted out luxury cars, maybe a few pick-up trucks and several economy cars. Huge sporting venues will be revealed, just like the ones that amused the Romans so many years ago.  The icons we worship today include everything but the One we should be giving our allegiance to.

 A society is measured by what it leaves behind. I wonder what will be determined about ours.  Is our wastefulness, selfishness and immorality going to tell the future inhabitants the kind of people we were?

Dear God, remind me of where the true treasure lies. There is no true value in things of this world. The real treasure is in your hands and it is freely given to us by you. I praise and glorify you for the lasting gift of eternity.  Amen!

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
