“A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.”
Proverbs 14:30

Once upon a time, I would’ve been embarrassed to admit that at this stage in our lives, we don’t have most of what I believed would be necessary if we were to live out our golden years in comfort. My Chipper & I have worked extremely hard throughout our lives, and yet we have little to show for it.  But, you know what we’ve discovered? We lack absolutely nothing that we really NEED to fulfill the purposes GOD has planned for us. By letting go of my preconceived ideas about what I would require to live comfortably, we’ve been able to fully learn how to rely on our security in HIS riches and not our own. It’s been a terribly difficult battle to fight in a world where our success equals acquiring visible proof of our labors so that everyone else can see and verify.  But, I’m no longer sorry for the journey that we’ve traveled; truthfully I am quite relieved to finally stop obsessing about petty and insignificant things such as houses, cars, jewelry and designer clothes. I’m not saying that I don’t WANT them, I’m just saying, that I don’t have to have them to be happy anymore and that is worth more than one can put a price tag on. In fact, buzz over to you tube and give a listen to one of my absolute favorite songs, PRICE TAG by a British artist named, Jessie J.  Just type in her name and PRICE TAG.

    You’d probably be surprised to learn how many people (rich folk) look at you and Chip and envy what you do have. You cannot put a price tag on love, peace, happines and eternal salvation. Material posessions are just things and in the end, you leave them behind. My sweet Grandma Polly always said that less is best. She survived for many many years on less than a $500 monthly social security check. The very first thing she did was tithe 10%. I’m sure she was categorized by many as a poor but sweet old lady. In my opinion, she was rich beyond measure. God always made a way for her and she never lacked for anything. If ever you get discouraged, just remember that you’ve got a mansion, right over the hill top.

    We are slaves to that which we possess. The more we have, there’s that much more of which to take care. And since I want to be a good steward of what God provides, I’d rather be spending more time on less.
