Be a Blessing ~ Wisdom for a Tough Economy

~ More resources to help you just like in my book Fresh Hope … Cleveland.

I posted the message below on Facebook yesterday. Many of you don’t have access to Facebook so I wanted you to be aware of this as well.

The next several years may be difficult ones due to cuts in government programs like food stamps, Obamacare rollout, fallout from Obamacare, continued unemployment, and our government’s debt and shutdown crisis issues which are pending as of January 15. It’s obvious that long-term solutions need to be found to keep this country from further decline. In some ways as you live your life this may seem like the best of times — yet for our country it may be the worst of times as Shakespeare once said. While things change on a daily basis around the world and throughout the United States including our government, one thing alone does not change: God. And so as you read the rest of the post below, remember that there is Hope and Good News for all of the world’s citizens. Why? Because you can always choose to put your faith and trust in God. For more see the Relationship with God tab on this blog.

Thanks so much ~ Make it a great day!

God Bless You!



Due to the Instability of the Economy (From Facebook):

Some single ladies and I were talking about the economy yesterday while attending a special program at someone’s house. We agreed that things may get to the point where people will have to double up in their living situations.

~ so if you have an extra room or a big house, think about getting it ready for others that may need help. I think we are in for a rough ride this next year.

~ and if you aren’t affected by the economy, look around to see how you can be a blessing to someone else who through no fault of their own is struggling. Thank you!
