So today we had a 5th Sunday combined meeting with the Priesthood.
The topic was food storage and emergency preparedness.
But for me, the topic was more of following the promptings of the spirit.
We have all heard for years that we need to work on our food storage. We have heard that we should prepare ourselves...temporally and spiritually for things to come.
And frankly, this is one area where I don't think I am doing very well.
I think that when you don't grow up in the Church, there are some things that just don't come naturally...like food storage.
And so, rather than dive right in and learn, I have put it off...and more often than not, I end up feeling like one of the 5 foolish virgins who doesn't have enough oil for my lamp.
So today, my lesson is, start now. Listen to the spirit. Prepare.
