A Thousand Years In a Day

Flood Geology — Another View of the Earth

Mt. St. Helens erupted May 18, 1980 — one day after Charles and I were married — so it's always held particular interest for us.  We moved from Tennessee to Battle Ground, Washington, in November, 1996, and it was six weeks before we were to experience sunny skies in this new-to-us land.  Washington, after all, is known for being a little sprinkly in the sky.  Imagine the start we had, when we drove down the hill into town on this clear-skies day and saw a mountain looming behind the Safeway store.  What's that!?  We literally had to ask someone.  It was Mt. St. Helens.  Mt. St. Helens was sitting behind the grocery store.  Who woulda thunk?

We were able to visit the mountain numerous times while we lived in Washington, and this film online — A Thousand Years In a Day — highlights the eruption and resulting geological changes: evidences of the time frame in which the earth received its face.

I ♥ this film.
In fact, I may buy the DVD. 
So if you'd rather watch it in my living room, be bold: ask me for an invitation...and bring a bag of popcorn.

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.  For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.  II Peter 3:3-7
