this maybe the last time

Listening for the trumpet sound
As still the world go round and round
Feet still planted on the ground
What is it still that has us bound

We wait for rapture to arrive
Come and take us while alive
Strike a blow at the thing called death
Let death not rob us of our breath

Come solve all our mysteries
Contained in all our histories
Come tame all our misery
Come save all the saints that be

Let this be my last verse on earth
Raise me from this wretched curse
I hope when I open the world to see
That if You did come, You didn't leave me

    The decision with the end of the earth occuring with the end of the Mayan calendar, we learned something. The end of times is not for us to chose... We are only guessing... And we've been doing that since the beginning of time... Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    He is coming but we don't know when..I believe that more and more people are crying out for His appearing...I see that nothing happened when the time came and went when the Myan Calendar ended..He could come at any time..Thanks for stopping by..That Asparagus is one of those funny things..Dr. Oz had something to say about it on his show the other day..About what you said in your comment..Apparently it effects everyone the same way..He did not say why or explain it..Sara
