Philippians 4:12 () I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. #Bible http://j.mp/ftc9cd&name=+Philippians+4%3A12+

Searching for the questions to properly find the answers. Question of the day yesterday: what was Jesus message to the insiders? What was Jesus message to the outsiders?
The first thing that comes to my mind is the time Jesus calls the people hypocrites. And the reason He calls them hypocrites is because they sit in their 'holy' places while the outsiders suffer. They are focused on themselves.
I am going to have to spend some time with this.

I heard this story on World News last night (CBS) and had to go to the source as it intrigued me. The woman is my age. She led a very intentional life. I have moved through life riding the waves. She spent a good portion of her life financially driven. I have a limited 'stash' because I am more mission driven. (Hope I don't regret this one day!) She had ONE planned child. I had two planned children, 1 surprise, and 2 bonus children (steps).
I think what I saw in this article was her intentional life worked out well, and she uses a positive attitude in all she does. What I didn't see is what would happen to her in a major crisis. I saw that she had experienced set backs, but the article failed to say how she managed them. It is easy to be 'happy when you have everything going your way, but true happiness shows its face in the midst of turmoil.
I might be the happiest woman. I know I am the happiest woman in my home! :-)
