"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Now is the time

This week  I would like to take a moment and ask that we keep in prayer those on the east coast dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.  I cannot imagine why things are still crazy with our government saying they are doing everything they can.

Perhaps like I have shared repeatedly, we must learn not to rely on the government first.  Perhaps we should take note of a prepper plan in case of an emergency, natural disaster, or crisis.

We should also be mindful of our neighbors, especially those that are older, those that have several children, or those with special needs, as we may be the very reason they might survive a crisis such as Hurricane Sandy.

Please take time today and put together at least a list to strive for of prepping items.  Include enough for at least one month.  Anticipate not having electric so stuff a hand crank can-opener. Have calorie dense foods also, even if this means buying some MRE's(meals ready to eat).

~Have medicines, toiletries, and care for feminine hygiene and infants if you so need.

~Have a place to go to in case you must flee.

~Have a plan that each family member understands in case they must flee from high school, work etc.

I am touching briefly on this, BUT, three weeks after Hurricane Sandy and some Americans are STILL without electricity, and are relying on the kindness of strangers, and hoping the government steps up.

By the way in times of crises, many call out to God and ask for comfort and peace.  If you would like to add a Bible to the list of items you have in your home to help you prepare, PLEASE click here...and we will send you one free of charge.

Hard to believe that there are still those without electricity. It seems as though that would have been fixed asap for hygiene purposes. Poor people heading it to a holiday season in a mess.
