“She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.”

Proverbs 31: 21

Just like the Proverbs 31 Woman, we need not worry about the future if we are diligent to prepare for the good times and the bad.

I love walking into my pantry (especially when it’s well organized) and seeing stores of food that I’ve put up or purchased, knowing that in the coming days we will have plenty to eat.

Keeping the food stores full used to be a way of life. Not having enough food put up could mean the difference between life and death even just a hundred years ago. These days, folks rely heavily on the idea that the grocery store will always have what they need when they need it. But, times are tough and our economy is shaky. Take time to evaluate your own pantry and see where you can make a difference.

    I love the setup of your website/blog! I’m so jealous that you have time to do all of those things and find time to blog about it. I retired from the Air Force in 2008 after nearly 22 years of service, started homeschooling in 2010, occasionally watch both grandgirls, and am also a newly ordained preacher’s wife. Looks like we have alot in common. Life is never dull at the Hyder Zoo. I am always busy doing this or that (mostly outside). This summer is the first time I tried canning and I was successful and absolutey love living like the 1800’s. I stumbled upon your site and love the catergories and music. I have marked it as a favorite and will frequently visit to see what my Sister-in-Christ is up to. I wish you and yours the best in all of your endevors. You go proverbs 31 woman! Cheryl

      Hi Cheryl,

      I’m so glad you stopped by and enjoyed your visit! Please don’t be jealous. I tend to leave out the stressy things in my life. And believe me. There’s a lot of things that cause me stress on a daily basis. And I don’t have time to do most of what I want to do. And very often my house is a disaster. Despite my desires otherwise. And today I have a very nasty head cold. Ugh. Not to mention all that homeschool stuff I drug out to organize has yet to be fully organized and its still sitting in my living room creating a unsightly scene.

      Anyway, I do hope you will come by again soon. God bless you as a pastor’s wife and mom!
