A Sign of the Times

The earthquake that was felt across the midwest shook our closet doors and woke all of us up at 4:30 this morning. As we sat watching the news, incredulous that we had indeed felt the tremors of an earthquake, I marveled at the GREATNESS of God and once again bowed my heart before Him. I told Cody that the Bible has predicted many of the things we see going on in our world today, and that earthquakes are just one of those things.

When I opened my email a little bit ago, I found the following from my mom:

"Hope you all survived this most recent marker we have that our Lord is coming for us...maybe sooner rather than later...I'm loving it!!! DO NOT BE AFRAID. HE IS WITH US!!!"

I couldn't have said it better myself.

Come, Lord Jesus. We're ready!

Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. ~Matthew 24:7

We slept thru it! If it weren't for the neverending coverage on the morning news, we would be clueless.

I didn't feel anything but the baby woke up around that time and maybe the earthquake woke her up. I am ready for the Lord to come!

This is all news to me. I guess I live in my own little world when I don't turn on a tv or read the newspaper. What size was that thing?

Being raised in California, I experienced this many times. I don't like them at all. I was telling the kids a few weeks back about our school's earthquake drills, much like firedrills today.

Glad you are all okay.
