I Can Retire Now

For years as I have worked, people have asked me, "What are your career goals? What are you going to do when you get older?" Invariably, I have answered with, " I want to be a Wal-Mart door greeter.

Well, I have reached my career goal. Last night I got to be a door greeter at Wal-Mart for 15 minutes. That was long enough. For those of you who know, we have seen some VERY unusual door greeter's in our time. In St. George, we had one gentleman who always wore his Emmett Kelly clown costume, with make-up, to greet people. His counterpart was a lady who wore different costumes every season. Fairy costumes, with wings and Tutu, rabbit costumes, leprechaun costumes, you name it. Personally, it was a little scary, and no, I didn't wear a costume when I greeted people.

I hope that something comes along soon so I can leave this job, but if not, at least I've fulfilled a lifelong ambition. I am grateful to have the job, I really am, but I don't like having to work so many hours and be away from the family.

Take care, and keep dreaming. Stick.

Sticks How To Is Going Away

Due to time constraints, I have had to delete my How To blog. I just don't have time to keep it up right now. Maybe I'll start it up again at a later date. I don't have time to blog here regularly as it is. Some day maybe.

In the meantime, take care. Stick.

"The Windows of Heaven will be Opened..."

My last paycheck from teaching came the end of August. I have only had a meager paycheck since then. Our outgoing bills have been pushing our budget to the limit lately because of doctor bills.

In spite of that, we have money enough to pay our bills this month. and due to the work I now have, we will continue to have enough money to pay bills.

Most people in the World would look at this and say that it is not possible. The Lord does not look on things the way the World does. "For with the Lord, all things are possible."

Those who are in the World have eyes, but they do not see. We do. The Lord has blessed us beyond measure. I felt I needed to ackowledge that.

"Trust in the Lord with all thy heart..." Stick.
