You're so right ....we "ain't seen sufferin yet". Please don't take my word for it. Just simply read about it yourself. You're right, I don't KNOW but I do know what the Bible says and if you don't believe the Bible, I have no objection to that either. I'm older than you and, like you, I realize that in the whole scheme of things a hundred years or so isn't really long. Looking back over my life I realize how short "60" years really is. Wow! Seems only yesterday I was asking Mom for the big box of crayons for my school supplies! Lol.
I had the great privilege of taking MY GRANDSON, now 5 years old, to several stores ( Including Toys R Us) for school supplies. Two typed pages! The school specified (4) boxes of 24 Crayola Brand crayons so we got those but also the big (64) crayon box with the built in sharpener on the back! Ya' gotta' have a sharpener!
I don't know who enjoyed Toys R Us more, me or him. I showed him a $100 dollar bill and he knew what it was. And I explained "taxes" to him, that those helped to pay policemen and sometimes, teachers. He had singles and combo's picked from aisle to aisle. He finally settled on a BIG R/C Ford F150 and a smaller "spider car".
Also got to go the next morning with my son and his wife to take Grayson to his first day of Kindergarten. Wouldn't have missed that for the world. I am a big, rough and tumble guy, but I think I had as many tears in my eyes as his Mom & Dad. I never would have believed I could be so silly over a "grandchild". My wife was the same way. At 61, I am blessed that my Mom & Dad are still alive and healthy and they must have spent 5 minutes over each picture that we took. What a great memory to have stored.
