I keep hearing all about the end of the world from everyone in the States. I remember even learning about the Mayan calendar in seventh grade. Can I tell you (as the wife of a Chiapanecan-Mayan) there isn’t a lot of hoopla here?
In fact, everyone seems rather unconcerned.
Now, if you remember the earthquake from last spring? That was something they got concerned about. But this? Pssh.
It surprises me how flippant people are making jokes about the end of the world. I mean, I don’t correct anyone or anything–but I can’t help thinking we should be a little more sober. Perhaps that is just the way they handle it…
I think about the end of 2012 and it is hard to believe! I have been here almost one year. Wow. This time last year, I was crying in my pillows searching in vain for a job. Now I have a husband, baby on the way, and a job I love. That’s amazing.
Trusting in God really makes all the difference in the world. I feel like I can say that in retrospect. The other day my husband and I were talking about the future, and he said, “Everything is going to be okay? I like it when you say, ‘Everything will be okay…'” I guess that is my new mantra. Trust God. Everything will be okay.
So, I suppose that is my message for the last post before the Mayan calendar ends: Everything will be okay. Take it from me. Whether you are a die-hard believer in 12-21-12 or not.
Keep Calm Trust God and carry on.
