I have always been intrigued by data… and numbers. Today’s date, 11-11-11, is a perfect same-numbered palindrome and is unique as only on one day in every 100 years will the date include two digits for the day, month and year that are identical.
This happens one time in a given generation. Most people who are born tomorrow will not live to experience such a date. Today will probably be one of celebration for a number of children who will be turning 11 on 11.11.11.
And, do the math – 111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12345678987654321. Pretty cool huh?
11-11-11 and Other Special Days
Unique and special days like 11-11-11 – birthdays, anniversaries, major holidays and graduation days – are worth writing about and celebrating. 11-11 is also Veterans Day. We celebrate it because major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice. this is always a special day for me as I’m a veteran of 20 years of service in the Army.
If you are reading this, it’s wonderful that you are alive and can experience this unique day, along with the other special and unique days that you’ve celebrated in your life and that you may celebrate in the future. But, how many more days of celebration will you have here on earth?
Any one of us can be here today, and gone tomorrow – in the blink of an eye. Sooner or later death on this earth will happen to us all. And when it happens to you, where will your soul be afterwards? Will it forever be in Heaven with your Creator, God? Or, will your soul be forever in Hell. You have a choice regarding your eternal destiny. You have a choice whether or not to have a full life here on earth – the kind of life that the Son of God died for us all to have.
“Seek the Lord while you can find him. Call on him now while he is near. Let the wicked change their ways and banish the very thought of doing wrong. Let them turn to the Lord that he may have mercy on them. Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously.” Isaiah 55:6-7
11-11-11 Is s Significant day
Yes, today is a significant day. You have a choice to seek and choose the Lord while you can, to live a full life on this earth and for all eternity in heaven, or to live an anguished life, separated from God, forever.
I hope you choose to live a full and eternal life with God.
