what will YOU do when the zombies show up hungry?

Do you have a plan?  Don’t you realize that zombies are coming?  C’mon, people!!  It’s what’s trending now……

Ok, okay.  So maybe there won’t be zombies, but there might be some really, really desperate neighbors knocking on your door if the lights go out.  And when I mean lights……I mean all lights….so pretty much anything with a plug….

Where will YOU be when the coffee runs out??  Oh, mercy….you haven’t even thought about this, have you?  Luckily for you, I have a plan.  I think it’s about time we start stockpilingEverything.  I’ve already started with shoes and skirts.

And don’t just think that I’m the only one talking about this!  Check out www.ready.gov and check out their exhaustive list of stuff you should be planning!  Who knew that we were supposed to be so busy??

Now, if you are a green-living-recycling kind of person, you are going to want to stockpile organic and natural foods.  So after zipping around the net, I have found a fancy-schmancey list of the top 50 storable foods for you to have in your  compound  home. You can find them listed HERE. Now, before you get all technical, not everything is organic, but hey!  It’s zombie time!!  We don’t have the luxury of bamboo forks and eco-friendly tablewear because of the scary neighbors and such.

But for all of us that eat burrito’s from our local gas station, here is a real GROCERY list that you can get from your real local grocery store..you know, before it’s too late……..(source: naturalnews.com)

These items are very low cost, loaded with nutrients, and are easy to  store:

• Sugar (not to eat, but to barter with. Never eat white processed  sugar.) Buy coconut sugar if you can.
• Pepper (a basic spice, easy to store,  easy to barter).
• Mustard (excellent nutrition, believe it or not. Made from  mustard seeds.)
• Raisins (easy to store and barter)
Lard (yeah, lard.  On a cold winter’s night when the heat is off, you’ll wish you had some soup  made with lard… and it’s healthier than “vegetable oil” which is mostly GMO  soybean oil anyway.)
• Butter
Pickled vegetables (all kinds, including  sauerkraut)
• Coffee (even if you don’t drink it, you can barter it. People  will be desperate.)
• Coffee filters (can also be used to help filter water,  cooking oil and other items)
Brown rice (large bags)
• Steel-cut  oatmeal
• Local honey (stored practically forever)
Sardines and  anchovies packed in olive oil (excellent storable omega-3s)
Sea salt (you  almost can’t have too much salt stored away…)
• Yet more sea salt
• And  even MORE sea salt, because you will run out in a prolonged collapse  scenario.
Peanut butter (portable, high calories, which you’ll need)
• Canned meats (long shelf life)
• Canned vegetables (you’ll need the  nutrients)
• Natural dried meats (AVOID all MSG!)
Nuts and nut mixes  (almonds, cashews, etc.)
• Cans of coconut milk or coconut fat (adds  delicious flavor to any meal)
• Spare can openers, kitchen knife, small  cutting board, etc.

You are also going to need to learn how to barter.  Mainly because there is “lard” on that list and I think we could certainly trade it for something better….like, nail polish or a something shiny.  THINK NECESSITIES!

The important thing here is to learn how to barter, and that can be done HERE.

Prepare yourself people!  I can’t do everything!!!

the end of the world…

  Ok….we have laughed….we have giggled…and we have made light  fun of those who were “left behind”….. but now we need to sit back and see what kind of damage we have done by our responses.

Yes.  I was deeply convicted last night when the world just kept moving along at it’s own pace.  I was truly saddened.  Not because Harold Camping’s prediction did not come true….but because of the many souls that believed his story…..and now they are left here, with us….the scoffers.  They are left with us … and we laughed at them…..

We laughed at the fact that Mr. Camping knew the hour and the day, although the Bible says in Matthew 24 verse 36 that “but of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.”  Where are those people today?  Will they be out on the street corners spreading the message that YES, THERE WILL BE A RAPTURE…SO BE READY (see verse 44 of the same text).  Or have they been duped and have now turned from the gospel and walked away from the Light.

Yes, I laughed.  I tweeted…I texted…I FB’d…..and I gave it the roll of the eyes and shake my head.  And my heart hurts for that.  My heart hurts for those that actually sold their posessions and this morning wake with shame and bewilderment. Are they going to turn from God?  Did they look at MY reaction and say, “you are no different than the rest of the world?”

Do you know that they have suicide hotlines in place for those who may sink into a deep depression?  Oh…..my friends…..we are children of God.  These people are our brothers and sisters.  And I am ashamed of my actions.  I didn’t actually meet anyone who believed Mr. Camping, but I was sure quick to wag my finger to my believing friends!  What kind of a caring, loving, christian does that?  Is that what kind of behavior Jesus had while He was hanging on the cross?  NO!!!  He loved them.  He prayed for them.  He didn’t make them feel inferior.

I don’t want to laugh anymore.  I don’t want to take what happened lightly.  I want to spread the Good Word.  I want to pray for those who are still here!  I want to pray for each other and try to un-do my responses of yesterday.

I apologize to those who I offended.  I apologize to those who I thought were so uninformed.  I apologize for my pride of acting as if I knew the secret (that no one knows the day nor the hour) and that the others were crazy.

No….I love my Lord.  I love my Bible.  And THANK YOU JESUS….YOU ARE COMING BACK!  I don’t know when, but I pray it will be soon…..because I don’t like how I’m acting.  I don’t like how I’m responding.  And I need more of JESUS and waaaay less of me.

Maranatha…….means Jesus come quickly.
