Books, Gigs, and FPU

FPU..? 


 I would like to take the time to thank FPU-Financial Peace University, 

and specifically Mr. Dave Ramsey, Chris Hogan, Christy Wright, and their respective radio shows on Siriusxm. 

Dave! When Dave's show comes on, I shout Dave..! Great voice, The Voice! 

He knows his program has not only saved marriages, but has saved lives. 

The program made me realize that u gotta redirect your focus from whining to work no matter what it is. 

'It's hard to be hateful when you're grateful', I quote Mr. Chris Hogan all the time. 

Christy Wright's Goal Planner inspires constantly, from the uplifting quotes to the occasional Bible text, I sent off for the 2021 planner just to stay inspired during these tough times.  

I have been selling books online ever since Half.com came into being in 2000, and Ms Wright's inspiration said to do what u love, which for me is books and I soon found out how to make a living selling books, but it's tough for sure. 

And I say it right now, I can't officially stay inside the program because I still have a credit card. 

I cut one up but kept the other one, a big no-no, and I should know better after over a year in the program. 

I'm not going to make excuses either because Dave's program makes perfect sense during the virus, even during the horrible lock-down, the program applied more than ever. 

My family is awesome support, but they aren't for public consumption on the world-wide-web.

Becoming debt-free is slow and often quite tedious, but without the program, I wouldn't even have afforded internet service, it was bad! 

So thanks from a very really long distance away in cyber-space, and I recommend the program here; 

DaveRamsey.com 

Real easy to remember, too. 

No affiliate link necessary, and if u call in with a real story, he gives away the course for free to help families right now. Everything about it is amazing...

Thoughts for Recovery

 Some Recovery Food 4 Thought; 

Remembering 9-11 attack with prayers for survivors, those gone and here. 

Recovering from virus attack with prayers of protection, 

Recovering from joblessness, hopelessness, fear. 

Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. 

-Isaiah 60:1 

Beware the light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably another train coming. 

-my Dad the hunter

When one is so Pro-Life, they aren't able to harm any living being.  

-me the zen

Day Labor? Labor Day..!

 Here's to those who work with their hands.  




I'm not alone in saluting u and your families. 

Life is tough for everyone, everyone! 

There might be a few that said, 'oh, life is so easy', never had to work a day in their life, everything handed to them, or appeared to show up for them, easy coincidences in life. 

There's always exceptions to any rules, but even for those with 'easy' lives, sacrifices were made, sometimes painful or pitiful ones. 

Regardless, life is hard and then we die. No one gets out alive. 

Unless one believes in Heaven of course, but I digress. 

Have an awesome Labor Day Weekend!

:-/

Before the virus hit, customers were so very generous. 

Not only were the candies paid for, but there were many donations. 

Stores will either have a generous base, so-so, or not at all. 

I've pulled boxes from places that don't pay, and hard times or not, 

they recycle back out. 

Right now, it looks like I'm donating to the businesses and/or customers.  

Everyone, customers, owners, and managers alike are very nice, 

most stores have opened back up and none have become dangerous. 

Not unexpected during difficult times, just sad and terribly annoying!

It's Always Something!

 Am so sorry for delays or any inconvenience this month. 

As stores slowly but surely open, there's still a lot of catching up to do in all areas of life. 

I missed 'my' stores like u wouldn't believe. Thanku for your incredible patience!

Journaling

 

Stuck inside, I have re-discovered the Bible. 

And scrolling thru YouTube, aside from cat videos and recipes, I began watching journaling videos, some Bible history videos, and then Bible history journaling videos. 

Not initially being a crafty-type person, these seemed only vaguely interesting. 

I already markup my Bible pages sometimes trying to keep history straight, and then I saw that there is such a thing called a Chronological Bible, Interesting! 

And then I saw there were spiral-bound bibles, and single-column bibles for drawing, notes, and those ever-utilitarian Washi tapes. 

Some really beautiful books! 

Even though they aren't overly expensive, I can't even begin to think about re-starting a bible collection, but sure is tempting! 

There are bibles for boys, girls, men, families and groups. 

Here's just a few of them, and should I ever have one in my possession, I'll be sure to include it within my BookRoom;  

(Sorry I'm not able to line these up a little more consecutively, blogger has a mind of its own..!)

I've turned a corner...

...I think...
Having planned on reserving a pool in Swimply for a break from the summer heat, I found I turned a corner because I'd rather work and save money than relax and spend it.
What a turnaround!
Working rather than relaxing? Never would have thunk it. 
Who can resist sunbathing by a luxurious pool whiling away the stress?
And I have Financial Peace to thank/blame :-)



I made it a problem to spend money.
I had to work at it and it took quite awhile, but it has officially become a problem and I really feel it when I want to purchase a necessity.
Some necessities are okay, and some aren't necessities.
Sunbathing by the pool, yummy! Quite necessary really.
And yet, been there, done that, so off to work I go...
