Being a Christian in today's world is very hard. But do not let that scare you, anything worthwhile is worth working for. Being a Christian can be hard but it can also be fun. That is my objective, through my own stories, stories of my friends and a lot of plagiarism (Just kidding, only a little plagiarism.), I am going to show that you can be a Christian and still have fun!

  You are here!


Did you ever have one of those days? Weeks? I have been working out of town all week, I thought I was going to get to go home yesterday and see the family but that was put in the null and void column. It now looks like I will be here all weekend. Hey, at least I have a job.

You are here!

Every day is like that for me. Then I have to step back and remind myself of exactly what you've said, "At least I have a job!" Although things could be worse, they can always be better though!

Family should be placed first though, you may have to just break away to reconnect. Distance can be detrimental to families.

Make it a great day!

LOL! My husband and I looked at that and busted out laughin'!

Yes, yes, I have indeed felt like that plenty of times. What a classic depiction!

Thank for Sharing!

Yes.
The most important thing is you are out there to procure and secure the means of making ends meet for the family and to save for the rainy days and of course for a better future. So that you can retire early and they can be rest assurred of their welfare.

Your family is blessed:

1) you are providing for them

2) you would rather be with them than working

Some people use work to escape their family obligations and some people don't provide for their families.

I think you are an inspiration and example to many people.

Hi Joe

nah! It's fully not even your fault that that person left a stupid comment. Perhaps that person would of left the stupid comment whether I had that thing on my site or not. It's true what Teresa said about the fact that it probably got to them and that was just their reaction. Whether they took it bad or not that's still a seed that's been sewed. Perhaps one day it will reap. I wanted to put that thing on my site and at the time I was aware that people may not like it. I figure that since I don't talk about God and being a Christian in every post that this thing would be there everytime someone opened the page and they would see it. And it's worth it for the hundreds of other people that saw it. We never know, but somebody might of even gotten saved as a result. So it's all for God. But thank you for telling me that there's someone that's making a habit of this on other Christian blogs. I might change my settings to only allow bloggers. I'll think about it.

Thank you for your encouragment though. God Bless You

Everyone already said what I was thinking. Sounds like you have your priorities straight being thankful for your job but wanting it to not take away from time with your family. Time away can make us appreciate them even more.

How ironic... today I'm considering taking early retirement from my job of 23 years, and look to find your gentle reminder that I should be thankful that I've GOT a job. Yes, I should - and I try really hard to be. I just need some more prayer on it...

The cartoon is totally hilarious! My only question (as I feel like one of the rats) is this: Which way am I traveling? To fight against the tide leads me to the fangs... to go with the flow ultimately leads me to a less aromatic exit. Decisions, decisions...

Peace, love and family time...
