My mom and dad were into town for a baptism on my dad's side this past weekend. Mom talked to me while we were cleaning the kitchen and reminded me about my Grandpa and Grandma's wise counsel that they had given us for years.
"To prepare ourselves spiritually and temporally."We are so blessed to have come from the most wonderful Grandparents and parents who have loved, taught and nurtured us in so many ways. I have been thinking about what they have told us time and time again, to prepare ourselves, to repent, to have food storage for our families and to live righteously.
I have to admit if anything were to happen to our little family and there was some type of disaster we would not be fully prepared for an emergency. I have set in my heart and mind goals for our family in many different aspects, but mostly spiritually and with food storage. I am sure that my forbears who have passed on know what lies ahead of us. The time is drawing nearer to our Saviors return, and we see it all around us. Just watching the news and all of the crazy things that happen in the world. At times my life and my selfishness distract me and I don't see clearly what is most important for my family's future. I hope that we will take time to ponder the many things we have all been taught by our Grandparents and our church leaders and act upon them too, so that we will be prepared to withstand all that we might face in the years to come.
