In a Storm, You've Gotta' Be Tied Down

What are your anchors in life?

In other words, what is it that you absolutely rely on, believe in, and live for?

In major crisis those anchors are hopefully going to be solid enough to keep you from being swept away in the madness and chaos.

God, family, home, country, money, liberties, work, booze, drugs, sex ... the possibilities are many. Some of them obviously are going to be more effective than others in getting you through tough times.

Time to Reassess and Batten Down?

Make your own judgment as to where we are headed, but it seems to me that we are at an auspicious point in history. We who are here to sail through these increasingly turbulent seas are not all going to make it to shore.

You want to get there, I suggest right now looking very carefully at what it is that you want to live for and what it is you think will help you make it.

Consider too that a few of those "givens" on my short list may just disappear suddenly. Or they may be transformed into unrecognizable shadows of themselves. If that happens, you might find yourself confusingly adrift.

Tie-down to more than one solid mooring. Get yourself right with God and your family in particular. All else may be little more than shifting sands.
Get Ready ... Seriously -
