Pragmatic Preparation 101

Over at Pam's Place a good thing is started. She pointed out September is apparently emergency preparedness month. I'll be linking to her posts about practical steps we can take to more effectively deal with emergencies. Of course I might throw in my spiritual and or comedic bits of advice also. Obviously we are putting on the full armor of God. For now - be thinking and posting about what we can do to prepare for the emergencies we know will come sooner or later. You can add tips at Pam's site or here - or we can link to one another with ideas. I'm doing better each day - some events are tougher than others but we'll get through this relying on God's strength 'cause I'm tuckered out here in Buhlaland.

I lift you daily to the Lord in my prayers. My FIL passed 20 years ago and MIL has been gone 18 years. We still miss them dearly, but it is easier now.

Dear Lord, please keep this family wrapped tight in Your loving embrace.

Gods grace is amazing.

It's so wonderful to know that even though we don't know what tommorrow holds, we know the ONE that holds tomorrow in his hands!!
Praying for you, Linda Sue!

Thanks for the plug, and thanks for the reminder about the "ultimate preparation."

Whenever we would jump into typhoon-preparation-mode in Guam, our Pastor would say, "Prepare for the worst, and pray for the best."

I stick with, "Hope for the best." My husband does the "Prepare for the worst." for me. I'm such a cop-out. :)

Anyway, I'm sending up lots of prayer for you and your family.

Let me know if you need anything, Linda Sue!
