Swine Flu?

(pig courtesy of freeclipartisland.com)

I am not trying to make light of a serious subject but I read that Swine flu is actually a combination of a Bird flu and a Swine flu. As my hubby pointed out....I guess that means that Pigs really can Fly!

Today is a gift....

Yesterday is history,
Tomorrow is a mystery
Today is a gift....that is why it is called the present!

There is some arguements as to who actually wrote this and I think Joan Rivers did a version of it but it dates way back. You can read more about it here

Facebook Addiction!

You know you might have a Facebook Addiction when the error message that "your account is unavailable, try again in a few hours" sends you into a panic. Suddenly you start to breath a little faster, and your heart begins to pound and your imagination runs away from you! What if little Miss Jane Doe does something cute and I am not there to see the pictures during the first 30 seconds after they are posted? What if the youth minister posts one of his corny jokes that I never laugh at anyway? What if one of the teens posts "I am soooooo bored" for the 1000X this month and I miss it!

Facebook is a great tool for staying in touch with your friends but sometimes I need to remind myself that it is a tool. I control the tool, it does not control me. So I think I will use this time to get some stuff done around the house, the laundry is piling up, the floors need to be vacuummed. Yes, I will put this time to good use!

God Provides!

I don't know why I doubt and worry because He always provides! Not always in the way I would prefer or expect but he always provides. I sat down to pay the bills yesterday and I was pondering what was the least amount I could take out of our savings and still pay all the bills. We are finally at a point where the only debt we have is our car and house note and we want to keep it that way and keep our savings growing too.

The first thing I do when I pay the bill is check out our bank statement on line, make sure there have been no surprises in our direct deposit. Well, yesterday I got a good surprise, the IRS refund had been deposited the day before. I had plenty of money to pay our unexpected replacement of two water heaters and the other unexpected bills we had received. I was even able to put some extra into the savings! It had only been a few weeks since we sent in the taxes and usually it takes about 6 weeks to get the money back.

So once again GOD delivered just what I needed just when I needed it!
