I love your mother’s saying. Just hadn’t heard it in a while.
So sorry for your illness. We will add you to our Care Group prayer list. There often doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to life sometime. But God says when we get to Heaven it will all make sense.
I’m reminded of a story about two angels who visited a poor farm couple who shared what little food they had and their humble surroundings with them. Their cow who gave them milk and provided a small income to them died during the night. One angel asked another how that could have been allowed to happen. The angel responded that the angel of death had come during the night for the wife but was convinced to take the cow instead. Life is not always what it seems.
May God watch over you.
Thank you for the kind thoughts.
I am doing OK, no complaints. It is what it is.
Another one of my Late Mother’s sayings was, There will always be someone better off than you, and there will always be someone worse off than you, that’s Life.
Once you accept that premise there is no envy. Too bad Democrats don’t think that way, huh? All they exist to do is blame others for their circumstances and to use Envy as a road to gaining power over Men. That is why I will never Vote for a Democrat, ever.
Oh yeah, one from my Father. “Nobody owes you a living, so get back to work”. I heard that one when I was a whining 12 year old working at my Dad’s Gas Station to make some money.
My Parents didn’t believe in giving their kids an “ALLOWANCE”. If you needed money, you asked for it. Then there was a Grand Bargain, money for labor. I spent my youth negotiating for wages. I should have run a Union.
