Every father and mother are the family’s storekeepers. They should store whatever their own family would like to have in the case of an emergency. Every other thing you read or study about preparedness, the ultimate decision resides with you as the parents.
I would if I could, but… by Jim Brinkerhoff
I would if I could, but I don’t like it.
I would if I could, but I haven’t the time.
I would if I could, but my storage is limited.
I would if I could, but I will get ready next week.
I would if I could, but it’s all in my attic.
I would if I could, but I am tired of preparing.
I would if I could, but I have had it over the years, and it is all spoiled now.
I would if I could, but I have no room to store things as it is now.
I would if I could, but nothing will happen, this is modern days.
72 Hour Preparations
I would if I could, but I already memorized the Holiday Inn’s 800 number.
I would if I could, but I will just call my neighbor
I would if I could, but nothing will happen that I can’t handle.
Are you saying these same things? Remember as the store keeper’s of your family, excuses will not cut it when your kids are hungry, cold, and in danger.
I could add more excuses to this, because I have probably heard pretty much all of them out there. It is time we re-evaluate our priorities.
This coming year, many opportunities will arise to help ourselves and our families become better prepared. Let’s make the effort to do so.
Then when hard times fall upon us, as they most assuredly will, we shall not fear.
How Do I Get Started
One step at a time, “Line upon line, precept upon precept.”
Involve the Lord through prayer. Seek his guidance and inspiration.
He waits to help us and blesses us for our obedience.
Create a plan for you and your family and just do it!
Set aside money each week or month so you can buy a little at a time.
Start with a one week supply. Then a one month supply, onto a 3 month supply. Eventually you will work up to a one year supply. It will happen before you know it.
Happy and Healthy Prepping
