    I hoped that the 7.2 was the actual earthquake but I'm wrong. Really hoping too for the safety of all.

    @ Ellen , yes i believe , i was reading the "LETTER FROM GOD TO YOU" , last night or the night before and had been crying like hadn't in a long time but of course went and commited a sin not to long after , then just maned up and said i was sorry. Usually I would still feel soo guilty still but I knew that he had forgiven me and that i didn't want to give another moment of thought to the Devil , so i took that forgivness and held it this time , i feel so safe , more so than i have felt in a long time. to all out there pls believe me that GOD is the one to run to NOW , love you ALL
