According to the Mayan calendar, the world is going to end Friday. We asked our Facebook readers, “If you knew you only had a week to live, what would you do with your time?”

• “Spend it with my family and church family, enjoying time together.” — Mary Albright

• “Make sure all of my loved ones were saved, so we’d all be together in heaven.” — Sonia Hurst Newton

• “I don’t worry about tomorrow — I live each day as if it is my last! Nothing is guaranteed in life: not marriage, not income, not nothing except ONE thing. We all will die one day. Don’t know when or how, but we will!” — Connie Steinberg McRae

• “Head just as straight as I could to the house of God!!!” — Bobbie Beasley

• “I would spend it with my family, telling them every second how much I love them. And I would be praying a lot, too.” — Gerri Steward Smith-Moon

• “I would fall to my knees and ask forgiveness for all my sins and beg for mercy.” — Lisa Parris

• “It makes me so sad that so many people live in fear of hell and believe they have to beg for mercy. I’m glad I’m not about that life.” — Hillary Lee

• “Cook some barbecue and throw a family camping party on Mt. Cheaha to ring in the apocalypse.” — Samantha Geier

• “Pray, pray and pray!” — Suzie Tucker

• “I will spend every moment I can with my children and husband. God gave them to me to protect and love, and that is what I will continue to do until he decides to take us away, and it may be tomorrow, next week, next year or years from now.

“I will not spend my last moment trying to get caught up on my prayers, because he knows I pray and that I am a true believer. I am ready for whatever he chose for me.” — Chasity Hudgins Blumenschein

• “Spend every second with my daughter, which I do every day, and pray to my savior. I may not go to church every day, but I don’t have to, to know that God is in my heart. I teach my daughter about him and that’s all that matters! Only God knows when he will take us home!” — Ashley Chupp Jaudie Walker

• “Quit my job . . . and love up on my family!!!” — Alicia Williams Blackmon

• “I decided a few years ago to spend the week in the land of the Maya.

However, earlier this year, the plan changed and I am now in the land of the Inca. If the magnetic poles reverse, hey, I’m on the equator. I just hope they don’t shift 90 degrees and put me on a pole.” — Geni Certain

• “I’d do just what I’m doing now — spending time with my beloved family.” — Russell Buckalew

• “Get everything right in preparation to meet my father in heaven!” — Casey C. Adamson

• “Do what I do every day: Praise the Lord.” — Kenny Bunn
