    I'm late to the game, but it's a gorgeous day here in Northern VA, had the windows open, fan going, and I'd just nodded off for a little nap when the earth started shaking. The dishes in the china cabinet rattled a bit, a box of cereal fell off the top of the fridge, and a kitchen drawer was opened a little. Other than that it was business as usual. Wasn't frightened at all, in fact, I was hoping it had something to do with the "dead in Christ rising first" and we were going Home. Unfortunately, it wasn't. But, I think it's another sign that Jesus pointed to that would be happening in the last days - earthquakes in divers places because when you think of earthquakes, you don't immediately think of VA.

    My oldest son lives in northern Virginia - I just spoke to him. He was working in Rockville and at first the low rumble made him think there was construction in the area. But when the desks started shaking and pictures rattling, he figured they were experiencing an earthquake, his first.

    When all had calmed down, a gal in his office said she called her father because he is "very religious," and since he was still there, she breathed a sigh of relief that she hadn't been left behind. I told Patrick that if she has any doubts, she needs to talk to her "Other Father."

    Looks like even the continent is starting to buckle under our debt load. I'd say run for the hills, but the hills were shaking this time. Serious question, between natural disasters and sinful man, is there any place that's safe anymore?
    Ephesians 3:17-18
    That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

    "It is by faith alone we are saved, but not by faith which is alone."

    The golf course at Martha's Vineyard. The earthquake didn't appear to affect the prezident's golf game.

    The sad truth is that there is no where safe anymore, it is just the world we live in. I've lived through riots and been involved in bomb scares and I'm only sixteen. Hopefully the rapture is soon, this earthquake seems like a "birth pang".

    Only Brunswick I know of is in Georgia, and it's down on the coast. Since you are in Maine, may I guess that you mean New Brunswick? Or are you talking about a different Brunswick entirely?

    Felt it here in Raleigh, NC. Freaky. Very rare for us here.

    Okay, confession time. This is probably just so un-Christian, but when I heard of the earthquake in DC, and the pentagon shaking, etc., - I chuckled. Not a loud, boastful laugh, - but I have to admit, I find it rather humorous in light of everything going on.
    My bad?


    Lord Jesus, I wanna come home!
    Come Lord Jesus and bring us home soon!

    Eyewitness reports have debunked the Washington Monument story. It's not damaged.

    Second thought, Thanks, Lord, I needed some encouragement.

    I really don't think we'll be here for long now.
    Me, too, Heather!! Same exact thoughts!! Maranatha!!

    Oh, thank you, dear Sis! I had one of those "moments" not long ago. (And I have had a few the past couple of weeks...) When I do (have these "moments") I always look up and ask God to forgive me. You have helped me realize I'm not alone.

    So, is there any region left in the U.S. that hasn't been shook yet this year?

    How true! I was telling a group of seniors at my work in our AM discussion group about how the Bible talks about lawlessness
    in the last days and how we are now in them. And that was about 2 hours before this latest birth pang! But I didnt feel a thing
    here a few miles from Boston. My daughter said she did though.
