Ain't Life Grand

A very quiet morning at the museum today.  I sold one book (signed) to a staff member and took £1:50 from and older lass  This is not paying the way I say! Typically as I left people wandered in.  Hmmm. The sad thing was the lass who came to visit was doing so because her husband cannot. She wished to get some idea of what his great uncle went through but sadly he himself has both Parkinson's and dementia. The lass was almost in tears as she left as her long time husband does not know her.  One of the worst situations in this world is being helpless when someone genuinely suffers.  She did not wait long and soon went off home.  I felt rotten, poor lass.

The rest of my day was filled with nothing.  Indeed I sit here wondering what I have done since I came home.  Apart from managing to eat I appear to have sat watching the paint on the wall decaying slowly. It could of course have been that I actually had the TV on the wrong channel, there is little difference. Judging by the mess all around I have cleaned nothing, but that is not new. However I think it a cheek of the council to send a man in a dustbin lorry to ask if I wanted the house cleared. Tsk!
Nothing for it but to watch the football now.  I suppose I must....

There is much about this world that seems to prove that our Heavenly Father really doesn't exist, or at least that He has absolutely no concern for our welfare. On the other hand, since He promises that our present suffering is nothing in comparison to the joy of spending all of eternity with Him in His Kingdom of Heaven as an heir to all that is His in glory, do we not have more to look forward to than what we can even start to naturally comprehend?

P.S.: There are several excellent presentations on John Knox on YouTube.

How very true concerning the worst situations. I have chipped away at the daily task and one by one marked them off my list. I usually set out to accomplish one or two things and I feel like a slap on the back when they are done. THEN anything else I accomplish is gravy. I have found today I have too much gravy as number two task awaits my attention. Off I go to fulfill the task and then put my feet up by the fire. It was 16 degrees this morning and so far it has only reached 30 degrees and that does not account for the wind chill factor. Burr. Peace

Just leave all windows and doors open and let the wind blow the dust and cobwebs away...and your housework will be done!

The suffering of many amongst us makes us wake up to ourselves - it causes us to realise we really have nothing to complain about; but we soon forget and start whingeing all over again. We're all guilty of it...that includes you,too, Mr. Ad-Man! :)

Have a good day/night.

It can't be my day.
In San Jose I hear the first strains of 'Feliz Navidad' oozing from a shop door and now it's you with a Christmas card...I think I'll hibernate.

Jerry, he knows all and will be proved right, even after I have attempted to change his mind.

Lady, the right to the fireside when work is done is a good one!

Lee, Thanks for that. I opened the doors and windows and all the leaves off the trees came in!

Fly, And a Merry Christmas to you also!
