Encouragement for Prepping Wives/Women

I use to be in this category, but now separated from my husband although still good friends. We live on the same property but different structures; he in the main house, I in my cottage in which I converted a 2 stall horse barn into a lovely living resident.  A bit different from the article below whose wife's husband is more into prepping than my ex-husband, I found encouragement from the article and hope that others, men/women will also find the same.

Ellis Paul: Woodie Guthries-God's Promise at the Guthrie Center

this was originally posted by lottiedah in her, "How I found freedom un an unfree world" forum in the "Prepare Accordingly" section. I like to stop by there occasionally. She always has a timely post for me to read.

God's Promise
Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by Paul Plissey

I didn't promise you skies painted blue 
Not all colored flowers all your days through 
I didn't promise you, sun with no rain 
Joys without sorrows, peace without pain.

All that I promise is strength for this day, 
Rest for my worker, and light on your way. 
I give you truth when you need it, my help from above, 
Undying friendship,my unfailing love.

I never did promise you crowns without trials, 
Food with no hard sweat, your tears without smiles, 
Hot sunny days without cold wintry snows, 
No vict'ry without fightin', no laughs without woes.

All that I promise is strength for this day, 
Rest for my, worker, my light on your way, 
I give you truth when you need it, my help from above, 
Undying friendship, my unfailing love.

I sure didn't say I'd give you heaven on earth, 
A life with no labor no struggles no deaths, 
No earthquakes no dryspells, no fire flames no droughts, 
No slaving no hungers, no blizzards no blights.

All that I promise is strength for this day,
Rest for my worker, my light on your way,
I give you truth when you need it, my help from above, 
Undying friendship, my unfailing love.

I promise you power, this minute this hour,
The power you need when you fall down to bleed,
I give you my peace, and my strength to pull home 
My love for all races all creeds and all kinds.

My flavors my saviors my creeds of all kinds, 
My love for my saviors, all colors all kinds, 
My love for my races all creeders all kinds, 
My saviors my flavors my dancers all kinds, 
My dancers my prancers my singers all kinds, 
My flavors my saviors my dancers all kinds.
