10-10-10

There are many who seem to have a fascination with numbers and aren't even numerologists! The number 10 seems to give a lot of people a warm fuzzy feeling. How often have you heard...
I wish I had won 10 dollars.
There are 10 things I have to do today.
The top 10 reasons to....

And the list goes on and on.
Did you know that the number 10 is used 244 times in the bible?
The number 4000 is used 10 times in the bible?
The number 10 is used 8 times in the Koran?
Did you know that this is the biggest wedding day since 09-09-09? Couples line up for marriage hoping for luck marrying on 10-10-10.

Some open questions for you to think about...
Do you think this day 10.10.10 has any real significance?
Do you think 10.10.10 could be your lucky day?
Have you worried something bad will happen on 10.10.10?

Most predictions and opinions concerning 10.10.10 are based on or rooted in mathematical uniqueness as a number. Thinking about today there are three possible outcomes:
1. Something good will happen and since there is no scientific belief to support this assumption it is based solely on faith and/or optimism.
2. It will be a usual day which is probably the most likely scenario.
3. Something bad will happen but really there is no logical premise for this belief as it is solely based on pessimism.
What ever the meaning 10 has in your life put a positive spin on it. I hope good things will come your way.
So happy 10.10.10 to you today!
