What To Do For The End Of The World
Well, I’m sure you’ve heard by now…the end of the world is Saturday, as in tomorrow. I’ve got to tell ya that I’m not buying it and even if it is what are we gonna do about it ? One group on Facebook is planning a huge party for all those still hanging out after the Rapture. So, that may be something for ya to check out if you’re not to sure whether you’re on the guest list for Heaven or not. Or maybe you’re counting the minutes till it happens but have you thought about your pet ? If the movie is wrong and all dogs do NOT go to Heaven you should check out this site . And again, if you’re like me and a little unsure of all this, check it out anyway for a little giggle. Oh and have you noticed the billboards around town stating “Save the date, Jesus is coming May 21st”. I had no idea he would send out save the dates, I knew I should have done that for my upcoming wedding.Well, maybe not so upcoming if the wackadoo’s are really right. So where did all of this come from ? Well , you can thank the math skills of Harold Camping. However, you should know that he predicted the same thing back in 1994 and ummm guess what ! Also, he is not an accredited minister,he’s a talk radio host. I’d like to point out here that he and I basically do the same job and all I feel comfortable in advising you on is a good wine.He’s rather creepy looking as well, and yes I’m aware that comments like that may keep my name from showing up on the guest list Saturday if the Rapture does happen. But,let’s just keep things in perspective. According to a column by John Mark Beliu in the Amarillo Globe News, Camping says this is how it all works out,
It’s based on Noah’s flood. Camping divined that the final judgment would come exactly 7,000 years to the day after the great flood.It gets more specific. There will be earthquakes that start in New Zealand at 1 a.m. our time and then spread all over the world. Does your Bible say anything about New Zealand? Then Jesus will descend, the saved will change from body to spirit, the dead will rise from the grave, and what’s left of the world will be under horrible pestilence for the next five months.
Well, that’s definitely not how I had planned to spend my Saturday. In fact I’ll be in Midland at an engagement party my fun ( they love wine as much as i do) in-laws are throwing. And in honor of that, here’s a great End of the World cocktail recipe. Ya might want to make extra in case it really does happen 😉
End of the World Punch (you know your friends are also staying behind)
- 1/2 oz Lucid Absinthe
- 1 oz Redemption Rye
- 1/2 oz Domain de Canton Ginger Liqueur
- 1/2 oz Simple Syrup
- 3/4 oz Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice
This is for one serving. Multiply by the number of damned guests for a punch bowl. It can also be topped with club soda for extra fizz. Combine ingredients in an Old Fashioned glass or punch bowl with ice. Stir, garnish with strawberries. ( via examiner.com)
And if it really does happen, I have a feeling that in the words of Miranda Lambert , Jesus really does understands a heart like mine.
