I was raised in a home with the philosophy that you work your head off in the beginning even though you may be working for pennies .................
But If you work for nothing or for pennies long enough, the day will come when
YOU GET PAID FOR THINGS EVEN IF YOU ARE DOING VERY LITTLE.
My Dad use to tell us children all the time: "do something that you don't get paid for, and tomorrow, you will get paid for something you didn't do".
Crazy part is I married a man with the same philosophy. All our married life he has provided services for ministries and/or for individuals. Sometimes he thought he was going to get paid and didn't and other times he knew all along he was giving himself without monetary gain.
We've been married for 52 years now, he is 71 years old and today he still is doing it..... giving and giving and giving.
We are a blessed family. When our children were little and would ask us, "are we rich?" I always told them YES.....even when we did not know where the next dollar was coming from to pay the bills.
Thanks Ken, for being such a wonderful husband and father. And thanks for having the heart of a servant and serving as unto the Lord.
My Daddy went to be with Jesus more than 40 years ago, but thanks Daddy for teaching your children valuable principles of life.
And thanks to my Heavenly Father for your precious promises and your faithfulness. Your mercies are new every morning. I'm a blessed woman!
