3/7/12 – It's a God Thing

A friend of mine called the other day. She was very excited about a financial planning/investment firm she had just joined, and proceeded to tell me about their products and services. She thought of me and proposed that I too could gain capital by becoming a financial adviser and eventually even get my securities license.

I am familiar with the agency she has joined and am thrilled for her because I actually believe it to be one of the best.  And she is right, I could use the extra money, but that is not my path. I follow God nods and becoming an independent rep for a franchise, "ain't in the mix", so to speak. She understood that.

We had a good laugh though when I painted the picture for her of what that would look like. Can you imagine me pulling up to an appointment in my 1993 Buick Century with burgundy velour seats, an AM/FM radio (that only gets 3 channels) and a broken cassette player?  I just don't think that any young couple would look at that and say, "Yeah, I want what she has." And it especially wouldn't bode well when I asked them for gas money so I could get back home. ROFLOL!!!!

Having said that, I must also say that I have never felt richer or more blessed in my life. I can't explain it except to say it is a God thing.

I have my health, my j.o.b., my friends and family, my furry babies, this blog, my online businesses, the anticipation of RV living and so many other blessings. But it's not just the things I have; it's a feeling of complete Peace and Bliss - Serenity and Love. "Priceless" as a familiar TV commercial would say.

I am grateful for this blog and for all that has transpired since creating it. You may be tired of hearing it wonderful readers, but I make no apology for giving credit where credit is due: It's a God thing.

  3. I grew up in a Catholic home and the things my dad would tell me I didn't quite get until now. It could be I'm super dense or super stubborn but I was almost 40 before I finally got the God thing :)

    1. @ Ann - I personally thing religion gets in God's way sometimes, especially when it comes to understanding Grace. I can tell from reading your blog that you are neither dense or stubborn, but super - yes! :)

  4. i know all about the God thing, so happy for you that you have it now. sounds to me like you have your act together and to me the most important thing is what you already have, that priceless feeling of complete Peace and Bliss - Serenity and Love. it took me until i retired at age 62, now i am 67 to find that and have it now.

    1. @ Patrick - thank you! That is the kindest way to look at that I can think of. What I am vs. what I have. I love that! Thank you. Yes, I love Dolly. She is a huge rig but perfect for me. I am so sad that I have to let her go. :(
