Hello there. I reckon you are bored and decided to read a blog. Thank you. We are having tremors here if you haven't heard. But it is funny...the people here are calling them earthquakes. There has been several just this month that have come through Guatemala. We have learned that one of the big (don't know how to spell it and don't want to look it up) fault lines is right under Guatemala and this is why there has been so many tremors and sink holes. Well today was my first experience of actually feeling one of the "earthquakes" while we were in church. I was with the kids in our "nursery" with two other ladies and their kids. They handled it well. They jumped up yelling "EARTHQUAKE!" and grabbed their kids and started doing a nervous dance that really took them in no particular direction...just back and forth. I started saying that it is ok, it's ok. and then when they realized nothing was moving any more they calmed down and started talking about how strong that was. I only noticed that I was swaying back and forth as if someone was shaking my chair to get my attention. But we were on the second level of a building in Guatemala, not really knowing if it will stand the shaking or all collapse! But I had my laugh and asked Brandi about it. She looked very confused and said she didn't feel anything. Of course she didn't feel anything. Her style of worship kind of mirrors the effects an earthquake has on the body. HAHAH I'm cracking myself up. But she didn't feel it...tells you how little it was. But let me tell you...I have been studying all that is going on in the world...earthquakes, volcanoes erupting, oil spills, sink holes, flooding, war, suicides, hatred toward Christ and his people, land slides, tidal waves, hurricanes, famines, extreme hot, unusual cold, and many many more things that have occurred over the past YEAR. If it aint progressing to the Day of the Lord then I don't know what is. In the words of Luke McIntyre, "We are closer now to the end of the world more than ever." And the response from Kimberly, "Are you for real? How do you know?" LOL Oh Kimberly and Brandi...funny. But I really hope God brings us Christians together stronger than ever and we stand up for him and not be ashamed so he will stand up for us and not be ashamed of us! We are here to give others the truth and let the Spirit do the rest in their lives. Don't get in the way...only be ready to do and continue on...the Holy Spirit does the work. Jesus never said that he would send his PEOPLE to the world to convict and make known the things of God to them...but his Holy Spirit. Just a little something God has shown me here lately. But pray and be watchful!! God bless and there you go. One more thing, go check out the topic on Yahoo's home page...they are announcing and celebrating their support for the Homosexual anniversary! Horrible for yahoo!! Going to have to change our email carrier.
