GRACE Lesson #3
OK, you may think I'm insane but you won't be the first so I say go for it. Hubby's already looking for my "vacation spot". ROFLOL OK, if you've kept up with the last 3 journal entries great, if not, I shall briefly re-cap here:1 - Furnace died Wednesday, 1-20. Cooking stove & 2 small heaters are being used.2 - Bad call regarding my step-father - throat cancer. Testing will be next Thurs.3 - Daughter calls to tell me she is pregnant. I am happy, scared, just pick any emotion as her health is not good. So am covering her and baby (I believe a girl) in prayers.4 - Get estimates on furnace repairs. Furnace repairs will cost over $2500. and that is just the furnace. Can't get it repaired until Tuesday and a winter storm is going to hit here MONDAY.5 - Finances are tight, but heck, ain't they always? Just add the cost of the furnace to the pile of bills for "financial creativity." ROFLOL6 - OK, this AM, hubby got up and yep, truck is dead. Yes, need more money to repair it. Again, add this to the pile of bills for "financial creativity".7 - Husband sick.8 - Youngest son's asthma is still acting up and trying to get it under control. OK, thru all this, I just smiled at hubby when he told me the truck died. He freaks out as if I don't comprehend the situation, as I am still smiling at him. He then repeats all the dire circumstances I have mentioned and that the truck is now dead. I still smile and inform him, as he is not a Christian, "Honey, God is in control and I am not worried. He is a good Father, He promised to take care of my needs, and I believe Him." He replied, "Well, tell Him to pay some of these bills and fix this stuff." I kept smiling and said "You know the difference between you and me? The difference is that my Father promised He'd take care of me and I BELIEVE what He said. So all this makes it His problem and He will fix it when it is time." Hubby then left to get parts for truck and some tester or something. Now admittedly, I'm not saying I don't have stress. This is proof I am living and breathing. So, I did the good ole WV NERVE TONIC remedy. Works every time and hubby knows when I say I need it, I mean it. So, off to the bank, leaving my "heated" home for a brief break and a dose of WV NERVE TONIC. So, what is this no-fail miracle tonic I have here in WV? I shall tell you. You are free to try it if it is available in your parts. I drive my car to do the errands then head for the TONIC SHOP. I go in, the waitress knows me, and I place my order. She knows my order but doesn't understand the tonic part so I had to explain to her that it never fails. I must now write it up for public use. 1 - hot fudge cake with whipped cream & cherry on top (ask for sugar free if diabetic)1 - cup of coffee (decaf will work if you can't have real coffee) 1 - creamer for coffee & a stir stickNOW - HERE IS THE CORRECT AND ONLY WAY TO USE THE WV NERVE TONIC PROPERLY! PAY ATTENTION! *First, put the creamer in the coffee & stir slowly until the cake arrives. Yes, you make take a sip or two. Add to this at least 3 slow deep breaths.*Cake arrives. Move coffee to the side and gently and slowly eat the cherry on top FIRST. Next you may take SLOWLY the whipped cream. Make sure you do all these steps slowly and concentrate on the taste all the while breathing slowly.*After the cherry on top and whipped cream, you may begin to eat your hot fudge cake. *Continue to sip slowly the first cup of coffee finishing it as you eat your hot fudge cake.*Scrap every drop of hot fudge you can from the bowl and ask for your 2nd cup of coffee.*Sip the 2nd cup of coffee VERY SLOWLY AND CONTINUE BREATHING SLOWLY.*After cup 2 you should be very calm & relaxed and only have used 20-30 minutes out of your insane life that has driven you to need WV NERVE TONIC.*WARNING - DO NOT OVER-INDULGE THIS TONIC. YOUR HIPS WILL SPREAD AS WILL YOUR WAIST LINE! Enjoy.....I know I did and I feel better and life looks better too. Besides, the sugar in the hot fudge and the caffeine will give me the much need energy to resume cleaning and dealing with life.
