“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat. In our mad rush for progress and modern improvements let's be sure we take along with us all the old-fashioned things worth while.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

The Sky Is Falling

... it hit me on the head.

I don't know about you, but as far as all the talk of the end of the world being later this year, we're plodding along as usual, making gains with our life skills, normal food storage for emergencies and paying off all debt.  Worried?  Not!  Life goes on no matter  what the news reports, or some long ago calendar.  We need to be aware of world events, stay calm, live each day to its fullest and go on with life.  Do you remember all the crazy predictions surrounding Y2K?  (Just saying;)  I see so many folks planning for the end of the world and yet they are ill prepared for today.  Slow and steady progress learning how to make do with little and using available supplies seems more reasonable than buying a year's worth of freeze dried EVERYTHING food that wouldn't appeal to me unless I was beyond starving.  We can't really prepare for such a mega disaster .. and who would want to be around afterwards?  Food for thought.

For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age ...
Titus 2:11-12

Yes, I hear you! My DD12 has heard about this prediction and is somewhat scared by it, but we have talked to her about it at length, and we are still making plans for a future post 2012!

Thanks for your comments on my blog this past year - it is always good to hear from you!

It's going to be an interesting year! I agree-it is prudent to plan for emergencies in a common sense way. The way things are looking on the real side of life-it's pretty dark so I don't think your preparations are nonsense. On the contrary-with everything that is on the global horizon it would be foolish to completely ignore it.

Grace. Quite simple yet through His grace we are able to have eternal life.

You know what Martin Luther said 500 years ago? "If I knew I was going to die to morrow, I still would plant a tree today." That's one of my mother favourites when she plants bulbs in the autumn.
