Our central heat doesn’t work right. It’s ok, we live in Florida and have space heaters (and no we don’t sleep with them on) for really cold nights. I’m not whining for money- we are just choosing to spend it on college at the moment. Being without just puts things in perspective. Our kids have never had the best clothes, etc. in fact, we are so accustom to shopping at GoodWill and yard sales that we about have a heart attack if we go somewhere expensive.. Like Walmart.
I remember stories about my mom’s poverty when she was a child. Her father would trap animals, and then clean them, and the “poor” people that lived behind them would take what he was going to throw away and they would make it into soup. Coming up, I never remember lacking for anything. I am thankful for moms stories.
I pray this minor lack (#firstworldproblem) of not having functional central heat will continue to motivate me to strive to be better prepared in all areas of my life.
Ford F150… Years ago, a study showed that most millionaires drove a Ford F150 daily. Functional, inexpensive, a wise choice. Lord, let me make wise choices and use negatives as fuel for positives in my and my families lives.
