car alarms at 2am

Yep.  That’s right.  The neighbor’s car alarm just went off a little bit ago.  Unfortunately their car is 10 feet from our bedroom window and we had the window open.  Hence, blogging at 2:38am.

We moved here 2 years ago and the one thing I’m not sure if I will ever adjust to is the alarms that go off all over the place all the time, seemingly non-stop!

I blogged about train crossing alarms the other day, but they’re just the tip of the never ending iceberg of alarms.  Along with them and the car alarms, there are firetrucks (286 rescues year to date), rescue squads, police cars, ambulances, radio alarms, burglary alarms, automobile back- up alarms on rear bumpers, dryer buzzers, stove timer alarms, timer timer alarms, telephones, pagers, even shock collars on dogs…there are alarms everywhere anymore!  The next time you are out and about  just stop and take notice.

Back in the old neighborhood we occasionally heard the alarm go off on the pumping station next to our home and that was about it.

Alarms every where are just a sign of the times.

Jesus, right now, I wonder if this matters?  I wonder if any of this really matters?  And then I think of the alarms.  Sometimes it seems like all there are are alarms.  Please return.  Amen.

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
