Before a week ago I was one of those that only used cast iron to cook with if we were in the outdoors and I was camping. My husband changed that when he got me some cast iron skillets and pots. We took them out of the package and they already come pre-seasoned but we wanted to give them an extra touch. So we looked up how to do it and it has turned out great so far.
We did it again with some Lodge Cast Iron I had in our camping gear that were in much needed TLC for seasoning (which means to grease them up good so they don't rust.....not salt or pepper them) believe it or not I used to think, "Do you like rub it down with salt or something???" glad I don't think that way anymore :)
I love the message in this story. We never know what someone might be going through or what trials they are facing personally. That is what I love about this message and turning something that could have become more of a hardship for someone, they turned into a great blessing. I hope we all can do a little bit of a kind deed for those around us, concealed and watch the deed unfold.
Why I am even addressing different types of shelters is because when starting out a homestead it depends a lot on what your willing to spend money on and how much. So say you are building a home, you can choose to 'camp out' while you build for the experience and to save money. Here are a list of different ideas of things you can use as shelters from one extreme to another.
When you're out in the forest for emergency or survival needs or just for fun to say you have tried it, here are some creative ways to build a shelter for yourself while out in the wilderness.
I have seen so many things going around in the media lately that have made a lot of controversy with opposing ideas and opinions. It makes me wonder if we are all drifters leaning on each others impressions or if we know enough to think for ourselves and stand firm. The United States Constitution and The Bill of Rights are what I think of when it comes to the things that matter in our country. I want to become well informed and learn more about them so I am not tossed on the wind from one point of view to the next. It is so easy to get confused by all the speculations out there through so many news and media outlets. That is why I really like what George Washington had to say, "The Constitution is the guide which I never will abandon."
We all have some sort of thing leading and guiding us in our own lives. For me, I try and use my Scriptures as a guide to help me in my daily life to draw me closer to the Lord and give me the strength to get through the trials I face personally. I want to get to know the constitution better in that aspect so I can stand firm in the things pertaining to our rights and freedoms that we all have been richly blessed with. I feel like now more than ever we are being bombarded by so much out there in the world. I want to do what Abraham Lincoln says, "Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm."
With all of these Amendments I firmly believe that we are Accountable for the actions we take with those given rights. For an example, if we choose to not 'peaceably assemble to petition' but riot and make an unsafe scene, then we will pay for the consequences of that by probably getting arrested. We all have the right to choose for ourselves how we will act in any situation and whatever or however that is done the consequence will follow.
I feel like that is something lacking in the public eye of Americans, to hold themselves accountable for the actions they take. There are so many examples like abortion because of a unwanted pregnancy or single parents raising children without a spouse because they won't take responsibility for their actions and so on.
That is why I decided to brake down the Bill of Rights on this blog post so I can see each Amendment better and get to know them and know where I stand and Stand Firm.
