When Times Get Rough

When Times Get Rough

It seems like the anchors holding our nation together are breaking free. I do not know anyone who isn't impacted by the present economic turmoil and every time the government announces a new program , a new appointee, it seems we are heading for deeper water with a leaking lifeboat.

Paul said that he learned to be at peace in times of plenty and times of need [ the Old Ned Translation]. Trust God and He will never let you down and will hold you together in these tough times..

Today, I received this in my email pile:

'To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.'

Let's all believe that something good will happen to us; something that we have been waiting to hear.

My wife and I received some good new yesterday from our CPA. Our income last year was so much less than our outgo that we earned a negative net income. All the income taxes we paid are coming back in a nice tax return check.. wow! How good can it get?

  1. May God bless you, Ed. That must have been a wonderful surprise -- but a heckuva way to get that money back!
