Announcing an Off-Grid Video Extravaganza!
“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”
What did I do to prep this week?
By Bev Sandlin
This week turned out to be a very good learning week for me. In other words, I was totally frustrated! My computer has been seriously on the blinks for me lately and I finally bit the bullet and took it into the shop on Thursday, fully expecting to get it back on Friday—NOT! By Monday, late afternoon they had still not touched it! I picked it up…
DUMB BEV: All of my phone numbers for family and friends are on my computer. All of my recipes are on my computer. Everything is on my computer! My printer quit working almost a year ago. I bought a new printer last month and can’t get it to recognize that the ink cartridges ARE in it—so no printer yet. And I spent a very quiet five days cleaning the garage, making fossils into jewelry, listening to the carnage of what happened at Sandy Hook school, praying for the families—and going through computer withdrawals!
In venting my frustration when I finally got back online, Damian from rethink just emailed me the prepper’s adage of “One is none and two is one.” Ah, yes, and I bought a $120 computer off eBay which should be here hopefully by the end of the week and THEN I can take this one to a shop in Rochester!
I believe I have a wonderful week lined up for YOU between Christmas and New Year’s—An Off-Grid Video Extravaganza! Please let me know if you like it, or not.
Okay Patriots, what did YOU do this week to prep?
A smile for you…

Twas’ 11 days before Christmas, around 9:38 when 20 beautiful children stormed through heaven’s gate. Their smiles were contagious, their laughter filled the air. They could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there. They were filled with such joy; they didn’t know what to say. They remembered nothing of what had happened earlier that day. “where are we?” asked a little girl, as quiet as a mouse. “This is heaven” declared a small boy. “We’re spending Christmas at God’s house”. When what to their wondering eyes did appear, but Jesus, their savior, the children gathered near. He looked at them and smiled, and they smiled just the same. Then He opened His arms and He called them by name. And in that moment was joy, that only heaven can bring those children all flew into the arms of their King and as they lingered in the warmth of His embrace, one small girl turned and looked at Jesus’ face. And as if He could read all the questions she had He gently whispered to her, “I’ll take care of mom and dad. “then He looked down on earth, the world far below He saw all of the hurt, the sorrow, and woe, then He closed His eyes and He outstretched His hand, “Let My power and presence re-enter this land! “May this country be delivered from the hands of fools” “I’m taking back my nation. I’m taking back my schools! “Then He and the children stood up without a sound. “Come now my children let me show you around. “Excitement filled the space, some skipped and some ran. All displaying enthusiasm that only a small child can. And I heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight, “in the midst of this darkness,” I AM STILL THE LIGHT.”
