And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose. . Romans 8:28


For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 / KJV
Jesus is our soon coming King
James 5:8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh."

wish you were here ~ beach bums

I tell ya, it has been SOOOO HOT here that I think I would like to just go to the pool and live there for the next few months. I have blankets hung over every window, black out curtains, fans.. you name it! I have not been using the dryer ... and limiting going outside, and the air conditioner still cant keep up!
I am living in a dungeon with no escape!!! The dragon (aka Sun) is watching and peering down over me daring me to come out of my house. lol!!! 

I am making it sound really bad. We have tried to enjoy our summer. We have been able to hit the pool a few days (not much) and have seen two free Christian concerts in Myrtle Beach. Kutless and Big Daddy Weave. Out of the two BDW was my most favorite... but the hottest! We were a sweatin'! man, let me tell ya! Whew! 
but I loved seeing everyone raising their hands, singing and praising God. 
Back to the card. This is who I want to be... and look like ;). 
Beach Bums is headed to the pool, lemonade in hand, and ready to relax.
