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.
Phew it aint half 'ot
