    Not worried at all. You need to clam down and worry about the things you can actually do something about. Think about how you will feel when that date gets here and passes and it is just another day that you are not quite ready for Christmas. If you beleive in God then just ask for peace in your heart and you will be fine.

    Oh Lynnie, What is the point of worrying about something that none of us has any control over???
    We never know what is going to happen, think about it !!
    Calm down and immerse yourself in NOW.
    HUGS, Sue

    Oh I see now. I'm not worried about that at all. I'm going to thoroughly enjoy life until I die and if it happens to be on that date for whatever the reason, so be it.

    It probably will be just another day, so like Kwhite says, if you belive in God, ask Him for peace in your heart and go on.

    They make their ratings on that stuff. Think about Orson Wells with the War of the Worlds radio show. People lost their lives that night over a hoax. No one, and I mean NO ONE knows when and if the world will end. Live your life as if today were your last. Be the person you would love to be and let the future take care of itself.

    I am not concerned at all.
    Live each day to the fullest. Don't worry about what tomorrow might bring. If you have faith, trust in God. I do!

    I love this saying and firmly believe it:
    "Worrying is like being in a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but gets you nowhere" :D

    If the world came to an end today I know I would be together with all my loved ones .
    God is in control, not us. Why worry about it? People worried about the year 2000 and not a thing happened except the date changed!!

    What concerns me is what a fear-based society we seem to be :(

    Hellllllllo! STOP Watching those shows that are upsetting you!

    I don't watch horror movies or programs with lots of death and violence and demeaning things. They make me uncomfortable ... so I don't watch.

    If it happens there won't be a darn thing you or anyone else can do to stop it. If it does then I pray that the Good Lord comes and takes his ppl away first. But when you think back in history there have been many predictions that the world was gonna end. Remember Y2K? Boy they pumped that one up and ppl paniced(sp?) bought the grocery stores out, bought generators, stocked up on all the supplies they could find like candles, flash lights, toilet paper the list goes on and on. And what happened NOTHING!!!!!!! I have gotten to the point that when the media hypes something up like that I just throw my hands in the air and shake my head.

    I am REALLY not concerned over the predictions of an extict people. If they were so smart, where are they now? They could predict the "end of the world" but then disappeared off the face of the Earth? Nothing has been found to show that they were attacked, died of a plague, or just moved on.

    The Mayan calendar says that the world, as we know it, will end. I used to worry, but not anymore.

    Dear lynnie, It sounds like what you'll be doing on Dec. 20 is worrying yourself into a possible heart attack and a depressing day falling apart. On Dec 22 you're gonna wish you hadn't let this rule your life for over two years.

    Everyone here has great advice for you but if it doesn't help calm your fears you need to perhaps talk to your doctor/pastor/priest/etc. Don't let this fear control you.

    Do more sewing and quilting...it works wonders!(((Hugz))) :thumbup:

    Such good and compassionate advice.............
    Talking through fears works wonders, as does sewing, or anything you enjoy :)

    That's my hubby's b-day and everytime the topic comes up, I say if the world comes to an end via explosion or whatever, at least his b-day will be celebrated with a bang!

    Please don't worry over this. I'm sure nothing will come of it and if it does, all the worry in the world isn't going to change a thing. Surely you aren't going to spend the next 2 years stressing over this, are you?

    God is in control. We don't know the date. We all prepared for Y2K and we are all here and all doing fine.
    I don't put much into dates except sometimes they are interesting.

    Like today at 4 miniutes after 2 am it was
    2 4 6 8 10!

    People get married on special dates this year being 10 10, next will be 11 11 etc

    My sister was born 9 /9 45 and a lot of what happens in her life always adds up to 9!

    Sit back relax, make a special quilt and enjoy the date.
