EARTHQUAKE in Bethany, OK! and I lost 3 more pounds, too! :)

Saturday, December 07, 2013

Praise the Lord! We are ok, but I understand this was felt all the way in KS, as well as way southern OK, too. On the rector scale it registered a 4.8 and may be updated higher.


He has risen from the dead and He is LORD!! emoticon

I was reading wonderful spark blogs, praising the LORD when the house and sofa I sat on began to move - rocking and rolling! emoticon

A LOUD boom emoticon sound ROARED IN THE HEAVENS and the entire building shook! while I sat quietly ....... PRAISING MY GOD! emoticon

Folks, we all know the times we are living in are spoken of in the bible as 'the last days. (US BABY BOOMERS HAVE SEEN INCREDIBLE STRIDES IN HISTORY!) Yet, from the political (yes, I finally said it!) arena, social, economical, environmental and Spiritual, all inclusive, we are lost!

(So glad my DF isn't alive to mourn the condition of His emoticon beloved U.S.A.!! In 2001 he passed to the other side just before 9-11. I emoticon him so much but knew GOD saw He would have died of a broken heart had he lived to witness it.)

For my friends on Spark and new people also, I hope you have your foundation firmly planted on the rock.
His name is JESUS! Acts 4:12

He is the (roaring) Lion of the tribe of JUDAH!

He has many other names, as well.

Here are a few of HIS NAMES that you may download in this painting I create. (though I'm not sure what spark download will look like. I own the copyright because it's my painting so take it if you want, PLEASE)

Oh, and PS: I lost 3 more pounds! i am so slow at recording my losses! Took me almost a week last time! I'm recording this right away!!

1 more pound and I'll be living in 180ville! emoticon

Read! 1 Thessalonians 5:1-9:

verse3: While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

5 You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.


Verse6: So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled.


For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. (we can say GLUTTONY for in GOD'S EYES IT IS THE SAME) emoticon emoticon

emoticon How to fight the fight:

8: But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. 9 For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.

emoticon emoticon WE CAN HAVE HIS PEACE ! emoticon emoticon

    When John asked If Jesus is the one to come to saves and he sent back All the miracles done by Jesus That was to show he was the one that came It was like Moses to take the people out of Egypt Not the norm God shortened the time that people lived in the Bible God has numbered the day we live and when we die Not true only the good live long Many bad people live long and Good die young The children that died in school shooting were not God doing put god gives lets bad things happen to good people because he gave us free will some can do evil We live in a warld that has more evil in it then good Gods will is all ways done He gives us the strength to go trough much The more I went trough the stronger in faith i got It makes us strong no matter whot will happen we will have the strength to hang on to our faith

    Praise God for his hand of protection. I agree with you, Jesus is coming soon. We must share with as many as we can the Gospel. It is sad to see where our Country is Spiritually. I pray for her everyday. I love the United States and I know God loves her too.
    Just the other day I was reading material about the prophet Ezekiel. Remember the question God asked him when considering the dry dead bones. " Can these bones Live?" Ezekiel's response was," Lord, only you know."
    What I love about God is his plan of redemption. What I love about God is although he must judge sin, he still is merciful and he has provided a way out, and that is through faith in the work of Christ on the cross.
    I agree with you dear sister. So many lives hang in the balance and God's heart cry is to restore lost humanity unto himself, but will they believe. I pray so.

    I am glad you are OK I didn't feel this earth quake but one shook our house about 2 years ago that was the first time I was ever in an earthquake and hope the last. We live about 4 hours east of you. emoticon

    So glad you weren't hurt in that earthquake. We must be ready for the Lord's return for He could return at any moment. I'm so glad my salvation is secure but I am concerned for so many who need Jesus. I'm glad He is longsuffering towards all those who don't know Him in delaying His coming so they will have time to receive Him. Thank you for sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with others so they can have an opportunity to hear and be saved! We must be about our Father's business!

    God bless! Oh, and I love your painting and emoticon on your weight loss. That's emoticon !

    Wow! That is exciting.

    I live in the land of quakes....CA. and have experienced quite a few, including the Landers 7.3 in 1992. They can be very devastating.

    Glad all is well and you are shedding the weight.

    Praise God he is in control of everything. He is our strength and high tower, in Him I trust.

    Fantastic times we live in. Not all good, but we have God and that's the key. Thanks for your blog and how you shared it. I'm originally from Seattle, which sits on more than one fault line and I have felt several earthquakes in my life time.

    One think I noticed on my first experience, for Seattle, the weather was really strange. It got very silent, no birds, dogs, cats, no animals were seen or heard, it got quite hot that day and not a breath of breeze. For some reason, I got a nasty headache and my mom made me go to bed because I was so dizzy. I was laying in bed when the earth shook. It made a mess in Seattle, dropping some of the geegaws off the tops of buildings and dropping them through concrete sidewalks below to the underground in places. Seattle was extremely lucky back then, no road collapses or buildings collapsing.

    Anyway, I paid attention to the weather after that and any time it got really silent, and no breeze, (it didn't have to be hot) but no rain either, and I get a headache and dizzy, we would have an earthquake. Fortunately for all, that did not happen very often but by the time I was 30, I could almost predict earthquakes where I was.

    When we moved to Florida, the land of Hurricanes, I thought I would never feel another earthquake. We had one about a year after we moved here. It was just a little roller and it shocked us because we didn't think we could get them here. It was centered in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico about 200 miles south of the mouth of the Mississippi. I did some study and found out all kinds of things about the fault line that runs under the Mississippi. I would say, without looking, you are fairly close to that faultline and you might be at the northern end, but if I go look at a map, I might find that not quite right, but fortunately it wasn't much of an earthquake and you are safe and sound. Let us hope it is not a clue to the Super Volcano, which is Yellowstone. In that case, I think we will all be going Home a lot sooner than we figure.

    Have a blessed day! emoticon

    Saw the news report about the earthquake - not felt here in almost-MO Kansas (we're about a mile away from the MO line). Glad it wasn't stronger and glad you're okay.

    Congrats on the weight loss! "Weigh-to-go!!"

    Praise god, that you weren't injured.
    Della , I love God too. But there have been many catastrophe in the earth 's plate injuring people, yet it wasn't God's time to come back now during this earth quake you felt, the tremor. I know you are strong in your faith, and ready at any time to go to Jesus. Are you living on a fault line? A weakness in the earths plate? Maybe I am just being ridiculous in my thinking. There is always going to be something that can harm us. Your destiny is in God's hands, so why am I worried about the human condition? Don't we all want to go home, to God! eva
