Left Behind

But the day of the Lord will come like a thief; on that day the heavens will pass away with a loud noise, the elements will burn and be dissolved, and the earth and the works on it will be disclosed. 2 Peter 3:10 HCSB

While vacationing in Louisiana one year our van was broken into while parked in the motel's valet parking lot. The vandal broke the side window and then stole games and toys that belonged to our children, a television, video tape player, some video tapes, and my golf clubs. A thief often works at night under the cover of darkness so others will not see him.
