End of The World

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang
But a whimper

Stella Artois Bottlecaps

A good friend sent this to me this morning. No truer words have ever been spoken, or written.

SO I toasted the Mayans last night with two bottles of Stella Artois, a Christmas gift from a business associate.

And I slept well, confident that if the world ended, someone would be sure to knock on my door, wake me up so that I wouldn’t miss it.

I think the end will sneak up on us all, no one will have any insider knowledge as to the day or time. Except that we should generally recognize the climate of things, the geography, and not be caught unaware.

“Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away. “But of that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. “Take heed, keep on the alert; for you do not know when the appointed time will come. “It is like a man away on a journey, who upon leaving his house and putting his slaves in charge, assigning to each one his task, also commanded the doorkeeper to stay on the alert. “Therefore, be on the alert—for you do not know when the master of the house is coming, whether in the evening, at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or in the morning— in case he should come suddenly and find you asleep. “What I say to you I say to all, ‘Be on the alert!’”
