I HAVE LIVED ON a fixed income now for several years, but I did not know how “fixed” it was until recently. Yes, it is set in stone while its ability to cover my needs is eroding like sand by a river.
SOMEBODY PLEASE FIX the outgo! They tell me that inflation it about 8 to 10%. Whose math figures that? Egg prices went up from $1.65 or so to $3.00 a dozen. Off the top of my head I can see that is about 90%.
AND GAS! FORTUNATELY we do not need so much of that anymore.
SO THE VALUE of my home has increased. What good is that? The insurance, taxes, and utilities are higher as a result of that!
WELL, THESE ARE THURSDAY’S THOUGHTS.
NOW LET ME TELL you about last night’s thoughts as I drifted off to sleep. I snuggled down into the pillow, thinking about how good my bed felt. It was better than Jesus ever had when he walked this earth. I’m sure in Lazarus’ home, Martha made up her best, but it was sadly lacking today’s comfort.
HIS FEET, AWW, his feet. How calloused with dust embedded in the skin! Mary did what she could with the most expensive ointment, but that was sadly lacking in accordance with today’s standard pedicures.
MY LORD, CREATOR, AND KING, I am so glad it is over for you. Never again will your feet be torn, pierced, calloused, dirty, and tired.
I EXPECT TO SEE his feet, immediately upon meeting him. That’s where I feel at rest, sitting at his feet.
IT SEEMS THAT the Lord has not fixed my income, but He sure can do an amazing thing by fixing my attitude!
