Do you think you can get yourself off the grid? I know you can but will you?
It will probably take some up front money to save money later but my oh my it is worth it. Can you imagine having power when everyone around you does not? Can you see yourself being able to shower or bathe, and keep your food cold and even cook, when everyone around you is in the dark and living out of coolers constantly buying more ice to survive and feed their family without showering?
Little by little you can get yourself off the grid. You can start with a solar water pump, or solar panels and do it a little at a time. Even if you live in an RV you can get solar products for your RV or boat. Eventually you will thank yourself for getting started and doing it right
Have you even thought about whether there will come a time when you would not have power for a long length of time and how will you eat and keep warm if it happens in the winter?
What if there was some actually terrorism in this country that affected how you live? As terrible as this sounds and as much as we do not want to believe it could happen. What if it did?
Where would you be? What shape would you be in taking care of your family then?
We now live in a world that might mean we should be planning for this just in case. We need to get a grip on the reality that this MIGHT happen, and what we need to do to prepare. Do you live in an area that might support a wind turbine? Wind energy is more prevalent than you might think. Or possibly you live on the ocean and could use hydropower? These are thoughts to gather together in your head today.
You might even need to have some dehydrated food and stored water, just in case of an actual disaster. There are Solar Power Backup Systems for a house and you can find one for your home.
Well if you did prepare, then you would not have to worry about it any more. you would be ready for whatever might happen and could rest more easily about it.
Not that it will, but just in case it does, you know for a fact that you and your family could eat.
You need to know that you family will be warm and safe…and fed, no matter what.
These thoughts are very unsettling but necessary these days with all that is going on around us. Just like we have to prepare for what might happen at your children’s school today, from the school lunches to the possibility of terrorism from another child.
I cannot believe that there are still instances where children are taking guns to school and getting inside with them to do any of the damage we hear about on the news. But it happens and we must prepare ourselves and our children for if it should happen again. If I had school age children today I think I would opt for home schooling. It is something so far from my reality that I can almost not fathom this has ever happened.
I can only pray that it never happens again. I also pray daily that we never have any more terrorism here in this great country of ours.
There must be some way to find out what is happening and stop it from happening ever again. This is my prayer.
