From generation to generation we watch as events change and the world takes on a sort of kaleidoscope of change. Taking the scope in our hands we zoom in and out of history, each generation taking on the colors and swirls of their own unique designs and customs.
From speech to the clothes they wear, to hair fads, tats and art and food everything evolves into something different from generation to generation.
I’ve been hearing the name ‘millennial’ used a lot more lately, more than before. So I did a little research and this is what I found.
They are born between 1977 and 2000.
They make up 25% of the U.S. population.
21% of consumer discretionary purchases which is estimated to be over a trillion dollars in direct buying power and a huge influence on older generations.
53% of Millennial households already have children
About 1 in 4 are parents today
Believe parenthood is a partnership 64% dads and 50% moms believe that they have equal responsibility of child care
46% report they have 200+ Facebook friends
Compared to 19% Non-Millennials (@Millennial Marketing)

~From Victorian babies, to Baby Boomers, to Echo Boomers to Millennials, there are labels for each generation…
I guess I never really gave it much thought before but somehow Millennials caught my attention…
I don’t like labels…but I have found it most interesting to read how, from one generation to another our world seems to be going from bad to worse…
Just some thoughts to ponder…when looking through the generational kaleidoscope, keep in mind…what the previous generations have donated to, future generations…
If say, someone from the First Century were to suddenly come back to life…what would they say about this generation…?
I’m living in this time period and I can’t even explain it…
Kaleidoscope, please tell me the world survives?
I’m afraid not! It all comes to an end…
There will be a new heaven and new earth…~Kaleidoscope

Isaiah 65:17-25 New International Version (NIV)
New Heavens and a New Earth
“See, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. But be glad and rejoice forever in what I will create, for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight and its people a joy. I will rejoice over Jerusalem and take delight in my people; the sound of weeping and of crying will be heard in it no more.
“Never again will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not live out his years; the one who dies at a hundred will be thought a mere child; the one who fails to reach a hundred will be considered accursed. They will build houses and dwell in them; they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit. No longer will they build houses and others live in them, or plant and others eat. For as the days of a tree, so will be the days of my people; my chosen ones will long enjoy the work of their hands. They will not labor in vain, nor will they bear children doomed to misfortune; for they will be a people blessed by the Lord, they and their descendants with them. Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear. The wolf and the lamb will feed together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox, and dust will be the serpent’s food. They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain,” says the Lord.

Then the Lord answered me and said:
“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry.
“Behold the proud,
His soul is not upright in him;
But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
