Sometimes it seems that the world's conspiring against you, and it is very draining to see money spiraling away from the bank accounts in a seemingly never-ending flow. I've had the chimney fixed and not had the bill, but I know that the hire of the cherry picker to do the job was about £180 before the chaps touched the chimney! Then there is the car, and the hire car, and the parts I have ordered, and it seems that that situation may not be remedied straight away........
In times like these, I do something which seems to some to be very strange - I start giving things away. It's a trust issue. It says to me and to God that I trust He will continue to care for us, and that we will be OK. That this drain will stop and that actually, I have enough, and so I can spare resources for others. I have just made a donation to the Salvation Army online, and I shall be making a donation to the local food bank today as well. It makes me stop and think about my own feelings towards resources and having "enough" and just how blessed we are.
