Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly


I want to start off this post by letting you know how much I love my calling. I love gathering information and putting it on this blog for everyone to use. I have been getting compliments lately that I am doing a great job. Now, I am not bragging I only say this because I get these compliments a lot, but I only hear a few comments on what people are getting for their storage and it worries me. (Not that everyone should be telling me what they are buying, but I get comments of "We really should do this" more than people saying "We ARE implementing your ideas".) I know that the monthly newsletters are being read and that others do read the blog. I try really hard to make food storage easy and usable. I am worried that I am getting the information out to you, but that there is no action being taken in getting your food storage done. I really want you all to commit to working on this area of your life.

"The many eruptions, earthquakes, and tidal waves which have occurred...are signs which the Savior declared would foreshadow his second coming, although he said his advent should be as a thief in the night...The wise and prudent will heed the warning and prepare themselves that they be not taken unawares. I testify, that {the Latter-Day Saints}...will be the first to fall beneath the judgments of the Almighty, for his judgments will begin at his own house."
President Joseph F. Smith Quotes taken from Lesson 44 Preparing for the Second Coming of Christ, page 393.

D&C 112:24-26 reads: "Behold, vengeance cometh speedily upon the inhabitants of the earth, a day of wrath, a day of burning, a day of desolation, of weeping, of mourning, and of lamentation; and as a whirlwind it shall come upon all the face of the earth, saith the Lord."
"And
upon my house shall it begin and from my house shall it go forth, saith the Lord; First among those among you, saith the Lord, who have professed to know my name and have not known me, and have blasphemed against me in the midst of my house, saith the Lord."


While talking with my sister this week we were discussing how badly she wants to build her food storage. She is in a situation of living where she will be moving and all of their possessions are in storage. She has all the intentions and the will to have her storage in place, but can't right now. My sister has her 72-hour kits and some other food that she is able to store, but what makes her sad is when she hears people talk about how they should work on their storage but don't. These people are very able and have the resources and space to have a wonderful food storage, but they don't actively work on it.

I know many of you are working on you storage and preparedness and I do see that, but I really want everyone to be prepared. I want to help everyone NOW, so we are prepared for LATER. Please take the time to put aside some food and necessities now when the time is relatively calm. Buy 2 extra items every time you go to the store and you will be amazed at how quickly it ads up. I don't want to seem like I am pointing fingers but this topic has been going through my head all week. I am really just worried for all of you.


MAY GOALS


  1. PURCHASE VEGETABLES THAT FIT INTO YOUR 3-MONTH MENU. THINK OF CANNED, DEHYDRATED, FREEZE DRIED, AND FRESH. (185lbs per family is a year supply)
  2. PLASTIC BAGS OF ALL SIZES, ALUMINUM FOIL, AND PLASTIC WRAP.
Enjoy the journey!
Enjoy the blessings!
Feel the peace!
