Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #266

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #266. Thanks for stopping by for this week's edition of the PENL. We appreciate your support.

Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful mothers who keep things moving ahead on time. You are appreciated and respected beyond words. Where would the world and families be without you. Thank you.

I hope and pray you all survived the crazy weather around the country. Our Patriot family in Oklahoma are safe but they are still getting heavy storms and tornadoes in Oklahoma for nearly two weeks now. You want to call this normal? Remember, I have been recommending you pay attention to natural events for at least a year. It's not going to get better. Our friend "Mike from the World" called this one a few weeks ago. Lots of water and massive heat coming soon. Here is where we will have to start thinking outside the box for different ways of growing food outside the normal process.

Now years into this preparedness journey, it is easy to sink deep in thought and not leave room or space for being cognizant to helping folks just getting started. If we keep a mental mindset of helping anyone desiring to prepare it could mean one more person or family around us being prepared and knocking on our door for a can of Spam. We must be patient and be encouraging to everyone. This helps increase the self-reliance and sustainability of our community.

I'm excited to be meeting up with several HFS members from TN, VA, and NC in Galax, VA for lunch and then drive 20 miles to the General Store in Hillsville, VA. It is always wonderful spending time together. When I say we are like family, it's not just words. It's really special and getting better. I had a chance to do dinner with four HFS patriots in Huntsville this week and we had some great exchange on food preparedness and bugging out. I have to admit, what we talk about is driven by the local folks and it's always fun and entertaining. It's priceless.

Books for kids - Many of you often speak about getting children involved in preparedness at a young age. Fellow Patriot James Walton has written a new 1st book to be part of a series. James is a good guy who works hard in the prepper community to educate people. I was honored to be a guest on Jim's podcast a couple years ago and enjoyed it much. Here is a link to go check out and decide if you want to purchase a book. The World of Ready: Book 1 Go Bags: 9798323305056: Walton, James: Books

Ding, Ding, Ding....Attention HFS readers..... Opinions shared in this newsletter are just that, opinions, and nothing more. Read at your own risk. The owner and author of this site is not responsible for hurt feelings or thin-skinned readers. I do my best to show restraint and respect to the best extent possible. I take as many precautions as possible and try to remain as nonpolitical as possible, however, there are times when I just can't help but point certain things out. Occasionally I use words only Patriots recognize and understand. It's not personal against any non-Patriot. It's just the truth. Sometimes we must pull up our spenders and suck it up. Just saying. Stay the course, read what you want, and avoid the rest. Avoid fear porn as much as possible and the day will be okay. When all else fails… Keep the faith and always have Hope.

Thoughts for the week -

Are you still wondering what is going on? Agenda 2030? Preparation for 15 Minute Cities and Sustainable Development? Depopulation? Are scratching your head? I try being open minded in this rat race we live so I am not mentally or visually skewed to other possibilities. Try this theory on for size.

Want a clearer picture? Listen to the words of Jordan Peterson with guest Michael Yon

And to think we have folks who still ignore getting prepared.

Preparedness - Have you ever been to the local market or box store looking at seeds available to grow a garden and you see packets called "can't" or "gonna" or even "eventually?" Yea, same here. I can never find them. They must be part of the new AI pretend foods for maximum weight loss. Total vitamin and calorie count equals zero. Get it? There are so many ways to grow vegetables today. One must simply be creative to their situation and for it.

Here's a good video on a method to grow lots of vegetables.

Need some motivation?

God is good and may our prayers blanket and protect you and your circumstances. I pray for each, and every one of our Patriots.

Our HFS family has many prayers needs for health and moral. We love you all and continue praying for each of you.

May we pray for all the blessings and things in life to be thankful about and continued hope for revival around the world. We must continually pray for the unsaved, our family and friends who live each day without the protection for eternal life and salvation.

As Patriots we must stay strong and never give up. Our home, community, and nation need us now more than ever. Stay focused on your local community and things that will impact you around the nation. Don't allow the events around you to create fear in your life. Build your own self-reliance and focus on faith and hope. Remember we are a blessed nation, and we must continue to be great people today and make a better tomorrow. Keep charging.
