If you knew that at noon on Friday, April 6, 2012, you were going to die--Good Friday, by the way for that year--what would you do? Would you continue to live as if nothing mattered? Would you create a kind of "bucket list"--the town of your alma mater, or some exquisite place overseas or in the States you wanted to visit all of your life, but didn't get a chance to? Or would you spend more time working on your relationship with your Maker, making sure that everything was right between the two of you? And let's say you not only believe, but you know that there is two places I could end up after my last breath here on Earth based on the outcome of that relationship? How many of you value a relationship with God?

I would spend my time helping as many people as I could and making the world a better place to the extent of my abilities. I would reach out to those in need and tell them how much God loves them without fear of persecution for it because hey I am going to die soon anyway so even if they throw me in jail I won't be there too long. I would strive to help others see how powerful love is and how all wounds can be healed through love. I would also strive to deepen my personal relationship with God. God has blessed me so abundantly, I would seek to help His love be spread to others.

I believe that something is going to happen in 2012. I think that a lot of people do because this is the end of the mayan calendar. I am going to continue to live my life like i always have. I try to live everyday like it is my last day anyway. If the world ends in 2012 I can honestly say that I have lived a happy life.

I think that in this case I would have to say that I would spend every minute possible with my family. They mean the world to me and if I knew that I wouldn't be on this earth for much longer, I would make the time that I had left, all about spending time with my family and making sure that they know that I love them. I believe that I have a very good relationship with God despite the fact that I don't go to church very often. I believe that God judges us based on what we have done with the lives he has blessed us with. Personally I don't believe that I have done anything to warrent going to Hell, and I would like to think that my family and I would be reunited in Heaven.

I belive in God. So come 2012 I would not be trying to make a stronger relationship with him because I will already have with him. I would begin the day as any other, saying Good morning to God. Stretching, reading and if I am with my partner , making love. listening to some music and maybe having a great breakfast. call and visit all the people who are dear to me and then plan for as much as my moved ones to come together for dinner to watch the sunset. We would get together at the biggest house and al par take in cooking the meal, say grace and eat, laugh, play and reflect. This of course is my version because the loved one involved would have to be as centered and focused as me. they might be upset that the end is here...

I do believe in God and go to church and read the bible, but probably like most Chirstians I can say that I am not ready. If I knew the exact date and time that he would call us all home, I would spend my time making sure that myself, family and friends were already to go home. Even though knowing that a much better life awaits us, it is still hard to say yes Jesus I am ready to go now.

..well, everyday is suppose to be our last day and we have to make the most of it.. have fun without hurting or embittering others because what we do here on earth will be reflected in the afterlife.. I value my relationship with God very much.. Everyday of my life, I just want to praise Him.. However, I realize that there are times when I'm overcome by my problem and do my own will not relying on Him..

I do value my relationship with God. I do believe that he does exist and that he will come for his world.
