Stretched Economy

Hey Y'all....yesterday was a gorgeous day and today is suppose to be just as beautiful....Warmer, but beautiful! Sure brings about a lot of some excitement of  Spring  being on it's way.....
                                       ~ ~ ~

Is it just me, or does the financial outlook in today's world look a wee bit grim or what?  Many people are completely jobless, and yet on the other hand, some people are having to work two or more jobs, just to make ends meet...

Utility bills are getting Higher, Groceries are most definitely costing More, and now gasoline is reaching an 
all time High in our area.......

The economy is stretched  way beyond what most people can deal with.

  These times are very hard on so many families.....both parents working....trying to provide a good decent home and life for their children.   It usually takes both incomes just to pay the monthly bills and this leaves (ZILCH) to put back for college funds...

What money is there to put back?    Not much if any!  Living expenses are HIGH...
Not to mention the cost of HEALTH INSURANCE....

Sure seems to me like we are all on a fast moving roller coaster and the track ahead looks like it has been sawed off.....One can only imagine the chaos and catastrophes that this brings about.

Even though the finances of our daily living seem way too bleak to think about, we can find joy in knowing that "God is still in Control."  Praise the Lord!

And we know that in all things God works

for the good of those who love him, who

have been called according to his purpose.

 For those God foreknew he also

predestined to be conformed to the likeness

of his Son…. Romans 8:28-29 (NIV)

together for our good - by using every strength and weakness 

(including our sins), every joy and sorrow, every 

disappointment and pleasure, every failure and success, every 

painful thing and every comforting thing; and of course He is 

using our financial situation.    Remember becoming like Jesus 

is a lifelong process, so don’t be too hard on yourself! We 

should  remember, that even when we mess up, when times are

 tough, when life gets us down,  we can still take all of our 

burdens to the Lord....He Loves us so much!


                                                 ~  ~~ ~ ~ ~

It's gonna be a bright, bright, sunshiny day!

I know what you mean! I don't know how much longer we can supply the demands of an 'out of control' government and all the programs for those who can't or won't work.
You can't get blood out of a turnip, and we're beginning to feel like turnips! :D

There is no other answer but to give it all to him. He knows what is going to happen before it happens, it is completely in his control. Love this post Shug!
