6 Shout AMEN!Amen ~ 5 PrayingPraying

Member Comments:
GREAT article, Kari! So uplifting to read sensible ways to think and live in these very trying times. Daily occurences remind us of Jesus' words about "the end" coming. Even though the disasters are more than heartbreaking, excitement of Jesus' imminent return encourages us, Halleluyah! Thank you for your contribution to sanity! Shalom!

Comments: Excellent article, especially the part about balancing trust and preparedness. Making myself rotate the stock will be the difficult part.

6 Shout AMEN!Amen ~ 6 PrayingPraying

Comments: I agree, Kari, no matter how much or little we can put away for a future need, someone will use it, even if we get raptured before we need it. I loved all the links; I have some of those books and the Berkey water filter. I used to make salads out of weeds and wild watercress when I was a poor hippie. I also used to have a "grow room." But I prefer to do my vegetable growing outdoors. And, no, I DON'T farm "weed" any longer, that was long ago. But I like the idea of having a little "booze" saved away. Maybe I should plant some grape vines so I can make my own wine. Take the edge off, if things get really bad. But I know we just need to trust Jesus. He is our only True hope. Anyhow, I enjoyed your article, Kari.

Jack I agree with you completely, being prepared is not a lack of faith.

I found these items on Costco.com and was impressed with the 20 year shelf life.

They come in a 5 gallon plastic bucket with sealed multiple serving packets inside.

Preparing for an oncoming catastrophe is not a demonstration of faithlessness. It is the reason for the signs -- why give a warning if not to prepare

There is an old joke about a man who was caught in a flood.  The first boat to come by offered to take him to safety.

"No," the man said. "The Lord will provide." 

A little later, another boat came by.  By now, the flood waters are really starting to rise. Still, the man refused a second offer to be rescued by a passing boat. 

"The Lord will take care of me. Thanks." 

Later, as the waters were about to inundate him, a passing helicopter dropped a rope ladder.  "No, thanks," shouted the man.  "Rescue someone else. The Lord will take care of me." 

Of course, the man drowned.  Standing before the Lord, he said, "I trusted You!  How could you let me drown?"  

"Whatever are you talking about?" asked the Lord. "I sent you two boats and helicopter."

Thanks ladies, I certainly appreciate the feedback.  BTW I found a strong backed man with a shovel. Yesterday he dug out 9 baby trees that were growing against the house and replanted for me...today we begin the greenhouse I am so excited!  In the end all he wants is FOOD!  Woohoo GOD IS GOOD...I'll take some pics and keep you posted!

Dear Kari,

Very funny!!  Made me laugh!  I have been stocking up as I can on water, tuna, spam, and dog food and cat food (for the dog and cat only unless things get really tough and they have to share)!  I would get some heritage seeds but I would have to plant them in pots on my apartment patio!  I know it is serious, but you are right, day by day trusting God is best.

Thanks for the article - I really like it!

Interesting article, Kari.  I too, am kind of  in the middle of this mind set.  Like Joseph, the Lord gave word to plan for famine.  

Then too, John the Baptist, got by with eating locust and wild honey ( the locust, don't sound real appetizing )

When the diciples went out, they were told to take nothing, and they didn't starve.  So I guess, for Ron and I, it is a few items put aside; but faith, that even if those things, somehow are also taken away, that the Lord will watch over us. 

God bless, and thanks.

Love, Shelley
