Doomsday Preppers

"It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine." - R.E.M. Lyrics 



The context: Luke 20:20-26

Jesus predicts 3 big events: 
1. The near event: 
The destruction of Jerusalem - Luke 21:5-24 


2. The in-between event:
The Times of the Gentiles   Luke 21:24


3. The far event: 
Jesus' return to set up his kingdom   Luke 21:25-28


The principle
The coming of Jesus' Kingdom is always preceded by upheaval    Luke 21:29-33

In The Meantime
Luke 21:34-38


Done be deceived by false prophets  and date setters


Expect upheaval and persecution


Pray for strength and protection


Stay faithful to Jesus

1. Have you ever seen someone on a street corner shouting, "The end is near?" How did it make you feel?

What can you do to be ready for Jesus return?

Celebration In Heaven And Earth!

Sunday we had our Baptism and Picnic at our church.
It was a most glorious day!
Sunny, cool shade, lots of music, food, family, friends and much relaxation.

We usually have worship and then we all go outside for the prayer and baptism. After the baptism, we would all get food and spread out to eat.

There is fun for the kids all around with games and toys.

So on earth there is celebrating and in heaven there is celebrating.
What a beautiful sandwich!

Are you baptized? 
Will you get baptized? 
Do you believe in baptism? 

What faith do you practice?




I love that it's not just a baptism, but also time for families to gather and enjoy hanging out together.

Broken Together - #Music For The Soul

I can see my life in this song.

What a song!

Music is amazing!




What do you think about when you look at me
I know we're not the fairytale you dreamed we'd be
You wore the veil, you walked the aisle, you took my hand
And we dove into a mystery

How I wish we could go back to simpler times
Before all our scars and all our secrets were in the light
Now on this hallowed ground, we've drawn the battle lines
Will we make it through the night

It's going to take much more than promises this time
Only God can change our minds

Maybe you and I were never meant to be complete
Could we just be broken together
If you can bring your shattered dreams and I'll bring mine
Could healing still be spoken and save us
The only way we'll last forever is broken together

How it must have been so lonely by my side
We were building kingdoms and chasing dreams and left love behind
I'm praying God will help our broken hearts align
And we won't give up the fight




I hope y'all had a wonderful Mother's Day! It was quiet for me. I did make breakfast, ate, worshipped and played my music loud like I wanted to :)
Not much stress at all :)

And I also had my mom here to spend time with....even though she wasn't feeling well.

Theme: Mother's Day songs or songs with mom, mother etc.

Welcome to today's music.  I hope Monday find you with a smile and music to begin your week with light steps. 
I'm always coming to visit everyone on the linky so don't worry if I'm a bit late!

The Clock Strikes Midnight #BookTour/Blast + $25 Amazon GC #Win

My mother is reading a book I took from the library for both of us to read. I really love that!

Get your mom some books this season! Great gifts!

And come enter in The Clock Strikes Midnight #BookTour/Blast + $25 Amazon GC #Win event!

The Clock Strikes Midnight Tour Banner 600 The Clock Strikes MidnightThe Clock Strikes Midnight is a race against time in a quest for revenge and atonement. This is a story about hate, love, betrayal and forgiveness. If you found out you had only 3 months to live, what would you do? That’s the question Janie Knox faces in this fast-paced mystery full of uncertainty and tension that will surprise you until the very last page.

 Hiding behind the façade of a normal life, Janie keeps her family secrets tucked inside a broken heart. Everything changes on the day she learns she’s going to die. With the clock ticking and her time running out, she rushes to finish what she couldn’t do when she was 17—destroy her mother’s killer. But she can’t do it alone.

 Janie returns to her childhood home to elicit help from her sister. She faces more than she bargained for when she discovers her sister’s life in shambles. Meanwhile her mother’s convicted killer, her stepfather, recently released from prison, blackmails the sisters and plots to extract millions from the state in retribution. New revelations challenge Janie’s resolve, but she refuses to allow either time or her enemies to her stop her from uncovering the truth she’s held captive for over 20 years.

Winter's magic banner Owner of La Bella Vita, a five-star day spa nestled in the affluent suburbs of Nashville, Tennessee, Beth Sergeant knows her elite clientele first hand. She attended their private schools. She was even engaged, although briefly, to one of their most recognized bachelors. But she never fit in to their social-elite world.

Yet he never lets himself forget that everyone has an agenda. Beth can’t resist Nick’s charm and accepts an invitation to dinner, despite her deep-seated insecurities. She proves she’s nothing like other women Nick's dated and learns to trust him in return. But just as the last of their resistance crumbles and true love is within reach, challenges from Nick's past threaten to destroy everything and force Beth to reveal her most guarded secret.
