Inspirational Sunday

Posted by imawheatwatcher on March 18, 2012

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”

– Marianne Williamson

Posted by imawheatwatcher on March 15, 2012

Every Thursday I will post an “Item of the Week” to assemble our Preparedness kits. Don’t worry if you have just started and we are half way through the list. This will continue on a loop so we will eventually get back to the beginning. Start when you can, do what you can, and we will become prepared.

Right now we are gathering items for: Food for 72 hr. kits

This week we are gathering 2 Ramen Noodle packages.

*Each quantity is for EVERY food kit you are making.

March Wheat Watchers Meeting

Posted by imawheatwatcher on March 14, 2012

March’s Wheat Watchers will be on March 21st. I will have a list of non-food storage items you should have on hand. I think when we think of food storage we tend to forget this part. And trust me there are some items you don’t want to be left without. 😉 This will be the LAST online class. In April we will resume having classes at my home.
