True Story

This morning when my hubby went to work he had a 5 dollar bill, a couple of one's, and some change.
When he first got to work, he tried to break the five in the food machines. They would not take his 5, so he used a $1.00.
He tried again at lunch, and the machine would not take the 5 dollar bill.
After work, while he was out mowing, trimming...basic yard work, a somewhat haggard, tired looking guy in maybe his 30's walks up to him and say's..Hey buddy, do you have a dime I can have?
My hubby thought...a Dime? Must be hard times for this guy!
So, he reached into his pocket knowing all he had was the $5.00 that he couldn't use all day at work.
He could tell the guy was embarrassed, and mumbled a "Thank you", and something about his attempt to get to Zenia.
Now, I know that my hubby pondered on that all evening, and finally came to the conclusion that the $5.00 that he could not spend at work was meant for someone else.

Honey Man...Your my Hero!

Sometimes God speaks to us in whispers, and other times he HOLLERS! Yep, your honey got the message and that is awesome!

I have been trying to Follow your blog, but when I click on Follow this Blog, it just sits there and at the bottom it says "error on page." I'll try again later.

Hello Renie,

Thanks for stopping by!
Oh, I sure hope the "Follow this blog" works for you...it's new, so they probably have to work out all the little glitches, or whatnot's.

Big Hugs...
