  1. Praying for each other...

    Hi all of you precious folk here! I don't often pop in, yet many of you, and the forum as a whole remains on my heart, and in my prayers. Continuing to trust and believe the Lord for His hand of protection upon His children - whom we are Praise God! He will keep us, He will never leave us nor forsake us. Psalm 37:24-26 24Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. 25I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. 26He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed. Standing in prayer, believing for God's peace that passes understanding to abound in the hearts and lives of all the folks suffering through these massive tornadoes and storms. Blessings, Gramma
  2. The site link below is a good resource and this particular info could be very helpful God Bless everyone! http://articles.herballegacy.com/nutritive-herbs-to-store-for-survival/ Nutritive Herbs to Store for Survival by Dr. John R. Christopher The following herbs are nutritive as well as medicinal and can be relied upon as concentrated food sources during times when fruit, vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds are not very abundant. Alfalfa (Arabic for “father of foods”) It contains protein, chlorophyll, vitamins A, B12, K, C, P, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium. The tap root of alfalfa can extend as much as 40-70 feet below the surface of the ground, picking up many minerals from deep within the earth. This is something a plant with a shorter root could not do. Alfalfa can be used as a food or a food supplement. It contains essential hormones and enzymes necessary to keep the pituitary and adrenal glands functioning. There is a story we have told at many lectures and classes about the family that was incarcerated in a concentration camp during the Nazi occupation of Europe. This particular family found the strength to carry them through to the end of the war when they were released. The key was an alfalfa plant growing in the corner of the compound inside the fence. Each member of the family secretly permitted themselves a few leaves of the plant every day…allowing the alfalfa plant to replenish its leaves throughout the long months. The family obtained the necessary nutriments from the plant. These nutriments were not provided by the inferior and scarce prison food. The family maintained their health while others around them dropped dead from malnutrition. Kelp or Dulse (dried and powdered or granulated) These plants originate in the ocean. They also contain essential protein, vitamins (including B12) minerals, plus about 35 trace elements needed by the body in order to function well. The organic iodine supplied by kelp will rebuild and maintain the thyroid gland. Kelp also has a salty flavor because of the high potassium content, so it will flavor other foods as an excellent salt substitute without the ill effects of salt. We know of a couple who lived on a beach far from “civilization.” When mushrooms and other wild vegetable food was scarce inland, they survived on fresh kelp washed ashore from the sea. Often they made kelp soup or kelp drink sweetened with honey and using fresh water. Slippery Elm Powder This is high in protein and vegetable gelatin. One could thrive very well on slippery elm alone. We have attended several cases where small children were losing weight rapidly and becoming weaker from some wasting disease. Often they could not keep down any regular food. When they were placed on slippery elm gruel, a combination of slippery elm powder, water and honey made into a thin paste, they not only survived, but actually gained weight and regained their health. The taste is very palatable, too. It is filling, satisfying and nourishing. Licorice Root Powder The adrenal glands need a lift about every 5 hours to sustain the body’s energy. If a meal or some other nourishment isn’t available, licorice root will feed the adrenals. The armies of Alexander the Great carried licorice root with them on their long marching campaigns for energy, strength and stamina. A far cry from today’s K-Rations, a calcium-leaching sugar chocolate candy bar issued to the poor G.I., by the military. Licorice root will also retain hunger and thirst. A tablespoon of licorice root powder in a quart of water (shaken thoroughly) and taken a mouthful at a time over a period of a day will sustain the energy of a person who needs to stay alert on a long automobile drive, for example. Licorice root tea is a splendid pick-me-up. A group of women who worked on the night shift at a well known radio factory were getting caffeine jitters from ingesting quantities of the popular over-the-counter preparation for staying awake. They switched to licorice root tablets and found that their energy could be maintained throughout the night without the consequences of caffeine. Licorice root is an excellent choice for a storage herb, it was even found in Egyptian tombs! Do not procrastinate in obtaining the substance, however. We import tons of it from the middle east every year for commercial medications and the licorice candy industry. Only the Good Lord can say when a transportation strike will cripple the nation’s economy and we will woefully bemoan our fate that this valuable herb has now become unobtainable. There is a species of licorice that is native to our country and it grows in high mountain areas. You can check local herb guides for pictures and localities. Another possibility is to try to obtain some starts for licorice at a nursery and cultivate it in your garden. Comfrey Root Powder or Leaves This herb is nutritive as well as medicinal. Comfrey root powder or comfrey leaves are unexcelled foods. Comfrey contains high quantities of protein as well as calcium. Comfrey root or comfrey leaf can be made into a tea or be included in green drinks (if you are fortunate enough to have electricity available for your blender and green leaves for your drink). Several folks we know have used the root powder as a thickening agent in their soups and stews: far more valuable than flour or cornstarch. Marshmallow Root Powder This is an invaluable herb which can be used as an herbal food as well as a soothing bath for healing the worst of open sores, especially gangrene. Marshmallow root powder can be reconstituted and used as a drink (a tea or thicker if desired) that can keep one from starvation. It is full of vegetable protein. It also promotes the flow of mother’s milk.
  3. Praying for each other...

    Father I come to you today asking you to draw hearts and minds to seek you Father, and to use us to bring those in our families who do not know you Father to everlasting love and redemption in your son Jesus Father. The hour is late Father and the fields are ripe Father, and many are in dire need of you to save , and the laborers are few Father. I ask that you reach deep down into the very depths of our hearts Lord and fill us with an unending desire to go forth into our own families Lord, and wherever else you would lead us Lord to share with others the dire need for your salvation and the depth of your love for them Father. I ask that you place this burden upon our hearts and minds Father for those whom we know and come in contact with Lord that are not saved Lord that we will pray them into your arms Lord and be a soothing ointment in this world to lead them to salvation in Christ Father. Father I ask you for a special dispensation of peace and strength for all of my brothers and sisters here who are in need, and I trust and believe on your for that Father. Thank you Lord - Amen
  4. The miracle of Scripture memorization

    I am just blessed, blessed and blessed by what God is doing in your life Mt Rider. What you have shared is truly inspiring, and it is God's inspiration flowing through you as a gift to others. I love this Word: I Cor 10:3-5 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. I am emboldened - thank you for sharing and God Bless your heart for Him. Love in Christ Jesus - Gramma

    Yes Cat!! Standing in prayer with you all for all here at MS forum. I thank you and priase you Father for this awesome privilege to come boldy before your throne of grace Father in Jesus Name. I thank you Father for sending and giving us your Son Jesus Lord, that we may come in Him to make our petitions in prayer known to you Father. I ask a special blessing of peace and joy in the midst of all of these most trying days Father upon all here who would receive what you have in store for them today. Father I pray the scriptures Lord and claim what you have for many here today as your Word will not return unto you void Father, and pray that your Word today reigns in hearts here Lord and accomplishes those thing you have set out to do in our lives Father. You said Lord that you will finish the good work you have begun in your Body Lord and you said that you will never leave us nor forsake us Father, and you said that all things work together for the good to those who love you, and you said that you are our strong fortress, Lord and you have made a multitude of promises of encouragement to not fear, and to trust in you Father, and we are holding you to your word Father God, and we believe your Word Father, and we trust your Word, and we trust you Father to reign in our hearts in peace, and that our hearts will not fail us for we have nothing to fear Father, for you are with us and so who can be against us Father Almighty to save and keep. Thank you Father that you love us so deeply and that we may appropriate your love freely in Jesus, as new creatures in Christ Father, fully clothed in your amour Father, that no weapon that is formed agaist us will prosper, and that as we see all else falling down around us we shall not fear for you and you alone Father are greater than He who is in the world. We are your kids Father and as your children we give our hearts and minds to you completely trusting you to strengthen, gude and order all of our steps each and every moment Father. Come soon Lord Jesus, come soon and fill us with your Holy Spirit and keep those rivers flowing out of our bellies pouring forth to all we come in contact with continually refreshing those whom we pray for stand with and love. In Jesus Name Amen. Blessings, Gramma

  13. LOL Videos and an Old Farmer's Advice

    Two Videos - The Old Woman and the Airbag and The German Coastguard An Old Farmer's Advice: * Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight, and bull-strong. * Keep skunks, bankers and lawyers at a distance. * Life is simpler when you plow around the stump. * A bumblebee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor. * Words that soak into your ears are whispered...not yelled. * Meanness don't jes' happen overnight. * Forgive your enemies. It messes up their heads. * Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you. * It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge. * You cannot unsay a cruel word. * Every path has a few puddles. * When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty. * The best sermons are lived, not preached. * Most of the stuff people worry about ain 't never gonna happen, anyway. * Don't judge folks by their relatives. * Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer. * Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time. * Don't interfere with somethin' that ain't botherin' you none. * If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'. * Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got. *The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin'." * Always drink upstream from the herd. * Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment. * Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin' it back in. * If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around. * Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God. http://www.farmersandplanters.com/jokes.htm
