Commentary from Sister V's Reader Battzi: Battzi Asks: "Did You Really Listen?"
iPhones. iPads. iPods. Androids. Tablets. Nooks. Kindles. Big-Screen TV's. Noise. All day long.
If you have been reading my posts, I have often exhorted my readers to plant a garden. I wasn't saying this just to have something to say. I saw the importance of a garden a few years ago. How many of you paid attention?
The economy wasn't the best but it was far from what it is now. I even stated that learning to Can was a great way to store food. Did you take the hint?
Rough seas are ahead of us, Sisters and Brothers. Very turbulent times. Times that may bring great distress. Are you really seeing? Are you really hearing? Are you really paying attention? Be honest with yourself. Do you think that this society/economy can continue the way it has been going?
THINK!!! Take off the rose-coloured glasses and look at what is taking place around you!
I feel it in the air. Uneasiness. Something is getting ready to come down and it is going to catch Americans by surprise. Many will NOT be prepared.
This is just an example, ok? The big Banks in Europe who are part of the EU start to call a "Bank Holiday" one by one. Their citizens run to the Banks only to find out that (a)they can only take out a small portion of their monies or (b)they can't get nothing at all. The ATM's have been shut down. They can't get nothing at all so they have to use what Cash they have on them.
*HINT*: Keep as much of your cash on your person that is safely possible. Only keep enough in your bank account to take care of expenses. Create a safe place to hide your cash and only tell 1 or 2 people where it is hidden just in case something happens to you!
Well, people are optimistic. They can go 1 day to a week of not having anything but food begins to run out, bills need to be paid, mortgages, rents. Still, the banks are not opening. Crowds begin to form and, well, you get the picture. Take a look at Greece. Whether you want to face it or not, we are involved with their economies. You think that it could not happen here? Really? Do you bet your life and the lives of those you love on that belief?
What are all these "foreign" troops doing in America? Anyone seen evidence of this? I have. Why are American troops basically overseas a lot? Hmmm...I wonder....innocent situation? We shall see.
Food prices are climbing every day and the nuclear meltdown in Fukishima has started to harm the fishing industry. Don't believe me? A fisherman stated that his crew can't find as much fish as they used to. The debris from that horrible scene is beginning to wash ashore on the beaches of other countries. Contamination.
Water. You can live 30 days without food but 3 or less days without water.
*HINT*: Get as much water as you can!!! This is imperative and store it in glass bottles. Water shall become the Silver and Gold that many prize. Hmmm, some may even kill for it.
Food. Water. Some Cash. Safety. These things mean so much. I am begging you. I am pleading with you. Plant that garden. Get that water. You can call me a fool. I'll take that. BUT, one day, you may remember that I wrote this little missive. Me, a nobody, a nothing. Get safe food while you still can. I could be wrong but I see times of distress ahead.
Do you have eyes to see and ears to hear? Prepare yourselves mentally, physically, emotionally, financially BUT especially spiritually as the years go on. I don't care who you pray to. I really don't. Just pray and each one, bless one.
I didn't know how to write this. I worried over this for some time but I just felt compelled to write this. You can take it or let it alone. As the Boy Scouts always say: "Be Prepared!"
May my "feelings" be found wanting. Buuuttt.......
