we entering a phrase of world history of great darkness and brutality

It is 9:02 AM Sunday morning. As I was doing the breakfast dishes in the kitchen I was remembering a dream I had during the night. I dreamed that there was a massive earthquake on the California coast. This massive earthquake will hit both Los Angeles city and San Francisco city California. We will see more and more strange weather throughout the United States and the world in the following months. There will be war between Russia and the United States. We will be seeing epidemics with no medicines to cure these diseases. We are coming to the end of the civilized world. We entering a phrase of world history of great darkness and brutality. When I woke up from this spiritual dream I wanted to call my wife in Arizona and tell her to fly home before the massive earthquake hits. But my wife has told me she wanted to die in the first wave of violence and chaos. I would like my wife by me when the United States collapses into a state of anarchy.

I got up this morning and made a pot of coffee. Next I messed with our main computer and then cooked myself breakfast. Now I am writing in my blogs. Outside the sun is shining but there is a layer of hard frost on the ground.

Last night I read the stories of Alice Munro and went to bed around 10 o'clock PM.

I do not know what I will do today. All we can do is pray for mercy.

"[1] But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
[2] For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
[3] For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
[4] But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
[5] Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
[6] Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
[7] For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
[8] But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation." 1 Thess. 5:1-8

He is coming again, he is coming again

Original Trinity Hymnal, #687

Lift up your heads, pilgrims aweary,
See day's approach now crimson the sky;
Night shadows flee, and your Beloved,
Awaited with longing, at last draweth nigh.

He is coming again, he is coming again,
The very same Jesus, rejected of men;
He is coming again, he is coming again,
With power and great glory, he is coming again.

Dark was the night, sin warred against us;
Heavy the load of sorrow we bore;
But now we see signs of his coming;
Our hearts glow within us, joy's cup runneth o'er!

O blessed hope! O blissful promise!
Filling our hearts with rapture divine;
O day of days! hail thine appearing!
Thy transcendent glory for ever shall shine.

Even so come, precious Lord Jesus;
Creation waits redemption to see;
Caught up in clouds, soon we shall meet thee;
O blessed assurance, for ever with thee!

Upper Macatawa Natural Area

This morning Rudy and I took a walk at the Upper Macatawa Natural Area. I can not remember the last time I walked here. I saw no evidence of Spring having arrived. I think the last time I walked at the Upper Macatawa Natural Area was the end of the Summer of 2013. Time keeps flying by.

When I take a walk at the Upper Macatawa Natural Area I always take pictures of this old tree.
