*** Ok, Can I borrow a plunger? ***

Thursday, April 14, 2011

I did this blog earlier and today not feeling any better. Found one thing funny last night my DH says we need to invest in (blank) I didn't hear him. My reply was "Honey we can't invest in anything. We are so poor I can't pay attention. He then says "We need to invest in a plunger." LOL we can't even do that.


Not sure where we will get Gas for this coming Monday. God is in control. I have faith we will make it somehow. No worries.


Hope you all have a good day.

*** True Freedom in Forgiveness ***
by -Author unknown



When Bill Clinton met Nelson Mandela for the first time, he had a question
on his mind: "When you were released from prison, Mr. Mandela," the former
President said, "I woke my daughter at three o'clock in the morning. I
wanted her to see this historic event."



Then President Clinton zeroed in on his question: "As you marched from the cellblock across the yard to the gate of the prison, the camera focused in on your face. I have never seen such anger, and even hatred, in any man as was expressed on your face at that time. That's not the Nelson Mandela I know today," said Clinton. "What was that about?"



Mandela answered, "I'm surprised that you saw that, and I regret that the
cameras caught my anger. As I walked across the courtyard that day I
thought to myself, 'They've taken everything from you that matters. Your
cause is dead. Your family is gone. Your friends have been killed. Now
they're releasing you, but there's nothing left for you out there.'



And I hated them for what they had taken from me. Then, I sensed an inner voice
saying to me:



'Nelson! For twenty-seven years you were their prisoner, but
you were always a free man! Don't allow them to make you into a free man,
only to turn you into their prisoner!'"

    God is in control--so you're not poor at all! Your Father owns everything there is. His resources are limitless. Trust Him. He will provide. You may not end up with everything you want, but I have no doubt you'll have everything you need. When you need it.

    I learned that the hard way. I tended to want to stockpile. God doesn't necessarily work that way. He gives me my daily bread--not a month's supply all at once (which would make me feel a bit more secure, but hey!).

    I feel your pain. I can not afford gas either. I like to go out for a diet coke at lunch but since my son uses 100.00 every 2 weeks in gas I can not afford to even go for a coke. He is in college full time and works. So I make the sacrifice.
