Prepared or Not ~ Time to Double Check Everything

So, for a few weeks now I’ve been talking about falling down the rabbit hole, being selective in who you’re listening to, and being prepared. You can go back and check out those posts if you’d like. (Actually, if you haven’t already, they may be very insightful. As always, it’s your choice. Choose wisely.)

Here’s a progression of my recent posts…

A few things in addition to the info I’ve previously given you.

In reviewing my “stock up” items, I remembered to check my batteries. I have a few flashlights that would be much more usable with them. Lol! Another thing I just thought about… I have an old oil lamp as a “pretty” thing sitting on a shelf. A sort of tribute to my grandparents, so to speak. I’m now wondering if it might not be handy to have some oil on hand to actually use that thing when we have power outages. (Unrelated to our current events. But, that would definitely be useful!)

Remember, it’s always a good idea to keep on hand a minimum of two to four weeks of groceries, fuel, firewood, etc. You never really know when it may come in handy. From a prolonged illness to natural disasters, you simply never know when having that ongoing stash on hand will become your proverbial safety net. If 2020’s toilet paper shortages have taught us nothing else, it’s that its better to be stocked up than to have to learn to do without. At this point, we’ve been well warned to be better prepared “next” time. So, if you’re not stocked up, then hit the store now to add bit extra to your supplies. You’ll be grateful later on. Trust me!

On another note, I’ve found some interesting details and insights in social media posts of a few people in addition to the ones I’ve already shared. Sometimes, well more often than not, many of these people speak (share online) in indirect ways. You need to pay attention. Read between the lines. Notice the dots and breadcrumbs being dropped willy-nilly. The many voices are sharing inexplicable facts, each in their own little ways. So, listen up and take notes. You’ll be glad you did!

Social accounts to check for breadcrumbs and insights…

Bonus video…

Take a listen to the Lin Wood video shared in this article. Very insightful. Again, listen to the video to what is being said. And also listen to what is not being said.

In being prepared, here are a few things to remember…

Amidst all the researching, following, and so on, a part of being prepared is to remember to keep yourself well grounded. Stay connected to God. Find your “peace”. And, no matter what varying beliefs are out there, all us humans really are together in this thing called life. So, remember, people are not our enemy.

So, yes, prepare to take care of yourself and your family and friends where possible. But, if things turn wild in your world remember your humanity. Take care of those in your path that may need a helping hand. Furthermore, don’t ignore your neighbor in their extreme struggles. Because, eventually when they make it through to the “other side” they will probably still be your neighbor. And they will remember the ways you helped them, or the lack there of. Your neighbors are your community of “fellow man”. Take care of them and invest in those around you.

And last but not least, Remember Your Roots

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of [a]the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.  Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” (Eph 6:12-13)
