Default Re: Wow!

Yup...you're right on Dien.....WE WILL run into "stuff"!....GUARANTEED! That's what LIFE is all about!

There's TWO FORCES in Life......one that wants the BEST for you and one that wants to "Hurt You"!

It's this "Hurtful" one that you NEED to be aware of and KNOW how to handle, so that YOU can not only can.... get thru it BUT..... come out Better than b4.

For example....at one point in my life I found myself in a small town after losing EVERYTHING......I mean EVERYTHING......Business, Wife, House, Money....da whole enchilada. All I had, after spending my last few dollars for a train trip to a small town in Colorado (Glenwood Springs) where I knew 1 person...was the clothes on my body AND.....it was September .....starting to get cold!

So.....after getting off the train and signing up to for a room for $15 for 7 days....I 'happened" to meet a guy who told me about "Trusting In God.

I'll never forget it. After about 3 hours, in his pickup, he gave me a Bible and told me to read "Malachi 3:10" (and other stuff) that says basically....."TEST ME ON THIS! Give ME ten percent of what you took in this week (my words) and let ME....reward your act with an INCREASE!

So..... the next morning I met him at his church and when the basket came around.....I tossed in every dollar I had in my pocket ($28) and......now get ready.....what I'm about to tell you....some of you may think "Hogwash" !

So be it BUT.....when the Service was over.....we all went into the dining room for coffee and.....while there.....a guy came up to me and introduced himself as the New FIAT auto dealer in town and...he heard that I had some "sales experience" and if I would come to his new dealership in the morn.....he'd talk to me about working for him.

So....next morn at 8am, I walk into the dealership (after thumbing a ride the 2 miles outa town) The Dealer sees me coming in the front door.....comes over to greet me....guides me into his office....has me fill in some Forms....we Talk for a bit then.....tells me he wants to hire ME as a Sales Man for $280 a week AND the use of any Used Car on the lot!

YOU kiddin' ME! The day before, I toss in my LAST 28 Bux and the next day I receive $280 PLUS a vehicle to drive! Talk about "Testing God!"......in the years since, I've seen MANY wonderful things happen in my life from the WORD of God that says: ALL MY NEEDS ARE MET ACCORDING TO HIS RICHES IN GLORY!

So.....GJ....I'm sorry BUT.....I Am....WHO I am. If I'm too UN-Politically-Correct or too Conservative.....or too Anti-the Anti-Capitalists...so be it!
