Let's see if I can verbalize here what's going on in my head today after reading a bit of "news". There was an article about celebrities and their tattoos. So many of them have tattoos these days. Not only celebs, but your average Tom, Dick and Harry, oh and Jane, Suzy and Cindy, too. I know, that's not news, is it? One of the celebs had a bar code tattoo on the back of her neck - a bar code? Weird. I couldn't help but think of the mark of the beast. I know, you're probably thinking I'm weird, but that's what came to my mind. In years past when I would hear about or read about the mark of the beast and how those who don't have it will not be able to buy or sell life-sustaining food and drink, I pictured in my mind how those WITH the mark would definitely stand out. I mean, not long ago having a tattoo was considered taboo (he! he! that rhymed, I always tickle myself when I rhyme). These days so many people have tattoos that one hardly takes a second glance. So, if in the days of tribulation one doesn't have a the mark of the beast, will it be as obvious as I used to think? Of course it will be noticed to an extent, after all people will be checked, but - oh I don't know what I'm trying to say.
