The End Of The World As We Know It

Well it’s here – it’s the end of the world as we know it.

However there’s a lot of good news. For one, people are moving closer together, even as we’re pushing farther apart, if that makes any sense.

We get so much of our stuff from foreign sources, and that’s gonna contract. The lines of communication, and the things we purchase, and how far we have to bring them to our tables and so forth…. That’s gonna get shorter too; and I think that everybody, no matter where you’re at, you can start some kind of garden. It’s one of the most rewarding things you’ll ever find – producing a food that you enjoy eating right there on your windowsill, or in your backyard, or if you have some land, out there too.

It’s mid-March. Now’s the time to be doing this anyway.

There are a lot of reasons to be hopeful. The world is changing, but that doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world.

Do the things that you’ve been wanting to do anyway.

I’ve got tremendous hope, and all we have to do is do right.

Tomorrow is going to happen. Yesterday happened. And the only thing that I had the power to change whatsoever, is just in my head and in my heart at this moment.

And I’m not afraid.

Proverbs 16:3The Scriptures talk all about this. Today is the 16th, and for me that means it’s Proverbs 16 (that’s what I read. Tomorrow I’ll read Proverbs 17.) But one thing really caught me today: that if you commit your works to the LORD, your thoughts will be established.

And all of us have a lot of thoughts right now. And me, like everybody else, woke up this morning going, “okay, what’s the next bad news?” But I committed this project to the LORD, and so he helped me organize my thoughts.

And the world isn’t so dark. As a matter of fact, the world is extraordinarily bright this morning.

It’s almost Spring. And that’s good news.

Have a great Monday. It’ll be gone before you know it.

A Little Note of Encouragement

Good Afternoon.

It’s Wednesday evening. This day’s almost over. And I feel compelled to offer you

a little note of encouragement.

I needed encouragement this week, and I want to share that with you.

This day’s almost over, but tomorrow’s a brand new day. And we’re all going to get up, and we’re going to do it all again. Because that’s life, and that’s what we do.

Days end, and days begin.

And the most important part is in the getting up. And I think we can all do that. So have a good night. Be encouraged. There’s hope.

There are reasons to wake up in the morning.

All right, we love you guys…

Have a good night.

UFOs/UAPs/Angels Photographed Above Reality TV Location?

Last summer, (June 22, 2019) Wendy took this picture of the sunlight still shining on the hill above us after it had already set behind our western ridgeline. Recently, while browsing through old photos, we noticed this one and saw that it contained some strange objects in the sky. We did not and still do not know what they are. We sent the photo to our friend Reyna at 4321 Media, and she ran it through a few filters she had available. That produced some interesting results.

We put it all together in video and posted it on YouTube to see what other people might think it was.

Some of the comments:

“Enoch’s watchers and living fires of god”

“Totally agree with portal.”

“I am of a firm belief that these craft belong to the realm keepers”

“It looks to me like Moses and Aaron with his rod.”

We also sent the photo to L.A. Marzulli who has done extensive research into UFOs, ETs and the supernatural, and he didn’t know what it was either.

Here is the original photo:

Would love to hear what you think. Please share in the comments section below.

On Pursuing The Homesteading Dream

This is really hard.

Having to carve this out up here, out of essentially nothing, it’s a lot harder than I thought it’d be. On the Raising Wild TV show I said that I wanted to be 100% self-sustaining by Winter. Well, it’s the second winter, and we’re nowhere near that. But we’ve made a start. We’ve made a start, and I’ve sunk everything into this – all my money, all my… my future. It’s a lot harder than it looks. (And it looks pretty hard.) Having to do this every day, and taking care of animals, and negotiating the back roads in winter time. That’s very difficult for anybody living out here.

There’s a homesteading movement happening.

…and I think that’s a good thing. I think that people are yearning for a simpler life out of a city environment, out of an environment where all you see around you is just man made structures blocking out the sun. Noise, cars, and throngs of people, all with our own agendas that we have to accomplish every day. I think people want to come out here and kinda start over. They want peace and quiet. They want to do things themselves. They want to learn things themselves, and put them into practice in their own little private laboratories on all these homesteads out here. And this homesteading movement’s not going to stop. I think it has real strength to it, because it’s a worthwhile thing.

Just off the top of my head, if I were to offer you any advice on how to go from suburbia or the city to a place you’ve always dreamed of, I’d say the first thing I would do is

Stop buying shiny stuff.

Stop buying gadgets and attractive things that you don’t need. It’s designed simply to remove money from your wallet. Buy things that are useful: generators, tools, vehicles – dependable vehicles – these things are real items. These things are durable items. And they’ll have a purpose other than just our own entertainment. The second thing I would say is…

Just start nibbling at it.

Find a place on the map you want to move to. If you already have a place, just start focusing on that. Turn your heart in that direction, and then just start going up to it and working on the land. Plot out where you want to put a house. Have someone plot out where you should drill a well. But get started. Get started now.

2020 is a momentous year.

There’s a lot of changes going to be happening this year. It’s a critical change in American politics and society converging on one spot in time. Be prepared. Be prepared for the day, not for the end of the world, but be prepared for the day. Live each day deliberately. If you have to do something, do it with gusto. Do it with strength from a position of power. And then, when you’ve done your obligations, and you’ve performed your due diligence, sit back and relax. Have a day off.

All of this is accomplishable.

It’s hard, but it’s doable. And if I had the same, the equivalency of cash, of what this is all worth, it’d be gone in two years. Proverbs says that riches make themselves wings and fly away. And that’s absolutely right; you drink it up, you eat it up, you spend it up, and in the end you don’t have anything. This is land. This is mine. It’s paid for. The taxes are current. It is something I can give to my children. And what they do with it is up to them. But if I don’t start, if I don’t put a shovel in the dirt, if I don’t maintain this, then there’s nothing to give them.

It’s going to be a good day.

It’s supposed to snow all day, but it’s warm – 33 degrees right now – and that’s good for the animals.
