Prepare NOW

Empty grocery store shelves are often in the news following a disaster.

In my recent lifetime, autumn has turned to a very big winter overnight. Prospects of springtime have brought racing torrents of flood water – more than once. Power lines have been damaged by grid failures or fallen trees. Water lines have frozen or normal water supplies have been compromised. Earthen dams have broken; earthquakes have rattled; my family and others I care for have lost employment, become ill, or suffered other tragedy.

Mother Nature and human nature has a preparedness message: “Do not expect warning sufficient for a trip to the store or the bank.”

WHEN YOU ARE WORKING ON SELF-RELIANCE

  • You find that you can RELY on YOURSELF to meet an emergency
  • There is a unique sense of exhilaration.
  • You feel calm.
  • You feel confident.
  • You feel peace.
  • You feel prepared.
  • You feel resourceful .
  • You feel grateful to God for the voices of encouragement, including His, to move forward in your planning and preparations.

May I be a voice of encouragement? May I say, “You can do more than you think is possible.” Hey, look at me! I passed a ham (amateur) radio license exam. Ever heard of ohms and amps??? Now I’m prepared to communicate with family members far away in case phones and Internet are not up and running.

Give heed to the voices of counsel that regularly encourage planning, learning and improvement. There are ways to succeed, and we are exploring them together here.
