Not long ago, the Powerball Lottery passed the billion dollar mark and everyone was scampering to win a lifetime of happiness.  People enter sweepstakes or frequent casinos for that one chance to live on Easy Street.

We all have hidden desires for wealth.  Wouldn’t it be nice not to have to work?  Wouldn’t things be better if we didn’t have to worry about making ends meet before we meet our end?  All our problems would disappear in an instant if we only had the cash.  Right?

When we place riches ahead of God, we’re losing sight of the wealth He’s already blessed us with.  Still we look for easy ways to end our money problems – ways that don’t require work. The more we spend, the more we earn, the more we earn, the more we spend, so why work?

His miraculous timing has always managed to keep my family going when we thought there was no way out.  When Christmas came and there was no money for gifts – God provided a bonus we weren’t counting on. Living paycheck to paycheck wondering if we’d have enough for groceries and a kind friend left a package of food on the hood of our car.  Losing everything – home, income, business, everything – and wondering where we’d live and another kind angel had a house  we could buy without a credit report.  To top it off, God provided a job to help us pay for it.  Some would call that luck.  I consider it God’s hand in our lives.

We can’t simply wait for God to intercede, but we can be confident that He will be with us in all that we do.  Putting Him first, is better than winning the lottery, because through Him, true paradise is waiting for us in heaven.




As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
