I've been thinking, in fact I think about things all the time. I chew topics over in my mind over a long period when I feel there is something that needs to be addressed in our home or lifestyles.
Some things are easy to do ~ real no brainers...like should we save water? Or should I grow vegetables...easy things to implement.
But this issue of stockpiling has been worrying me a bit. I don't like doomsday prophets and naysayers...I prefer to trust in Father God to care for me and mine. This said I also believe as the Bible says: "A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences." Proverbs 22:3.
I like to think that I make wise decisions and that I am not a simpleton so I have been thinking about what steps we should take to be more prepared in case of food shortages, basic services and to reduce water and electricity dependence.
I could carry on thinking about this for a long time until I have it all sorted in my head...but this morning I read an article on the 2010 World Cup Soccer and the possible resulting food shortages and price hikes we may experience.
This may just be the thing to push me over the fence and start making inroads into stockpiling, water tanks and solar power.
Anyway, a few months ago I signed up for a E-zine on www.survival-homestead.com purely to get his very comprehensive survival kit/stockpiling lists. Wow! Are these lists completely all encompassing thorough lists....if you are keen to get thinking along with me, then do sign up for it.
