man the rain, i suspect we could be approaching the End Times

We are currently in the end days. There was a news report a few weeks ago confirming that the end of the world will happen on May 21 this year. On that day the believers will be transported to Heaven while everybody else will suffer five months of torture. On October 21 everything will totally end.

I’m not surprised the world will end in a few months. I’ve seen an increasing number of people with tattoos. God will not tolerate this.

we had a “sever” storm yesterday afternoon – it broke one of the tree branches in our front yard – which fell onto the garage roof. thankfully no damage to the tiles.

Storm. lol

WOW, the thunder is amazing….
Around Xmas I took photo’s from Qbn, (mainly the view of the sky and clouds) looking out towards Canberra when storms were starting or finishing but I never posted as I know this is primarily an ACT site. Shame though as some were beautiful…

One of many lately.

Could just be me, but can’t get my mobile phone to lock back on to Telstra’s network. Lightning take out a tower?

man the rain, i suspect we could be approaching the End Times
