I chuckle at this time of year because as June 1st comes
the start of the Hurricane season comes as well.
Today it begins.
Yet, the humor in this to me goes like this:
What happens between May 31st and June 1st
that changes the status from NOT Hurricane
season, to IT'S ON... HURRICANE SEASON.
A search of the internet has netted me no
reason on why June 1st is the big day.
Or maybe I just don't care too dig deep
enough to find out.
For those of you interested in Hurricane Season '11,

SO, tis the season. June 1st through November 30th
all eyes in the areas of the US, Mexico, Caribbean Islands
are ever glancing at the skies, checking their barometers
in the anticipation of what the ocean may bring forth.
2. ever awake and alert; sleeplessly watchful
The Bible says we should be alert as well.
We should be alert for the enemy:
1 Peter 5:8... "Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour."
We should be alert for the Kings return:
Mark 13:32-33... "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come."
We should be alert to the point of prayer:
Ephesians 6:18... "And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints."
Hurricane season has a specific day
where those concerned go on alert.
There, however, is no certain season
to remain alert against the enemy,
to remain alert for the return of the King,
or to remain alert to the point of prayer.
