Sometimes It Takes a Mountain

Good morning, World.

I am currently charging up my telephone so I can call the mortgage company to find out what my options are concerning this trailer since I can't move it and am told I have to vacate the premises by January 24th due to the landlords selling the property.

I got the notice last night.

I guess they figured they couldn't keep it up and that not keeping it up would cost them more money than keeping it, so they have decided to sell it.

Suddenly I don't care about the rats anymore.

And, I will have to call off the Jesus Feast this year - again.

This is going to take all of the money I have saved up in my E-trade account, and then some. So, I have to figure out something fast.

It is funny how someone else's decisions can be life or death for you financially, and there is nothing you can do about it.

If I get out from under all this, I will never buy another mobile home. Lesson learned. I will be working toward my tiny home, though.

I will be looking for an affordable, pet friendly apartment or house until I can do so, though.

I know God has a plan. And, I know where my focus should be from now on. I know it should have never left there... I am going through this all alone, with God.

Sometimes it takes a mountain.

Have a blessed day!

oops, wrong delivery

Today I did my first shop and delivery order for the Spark app.

I did a good job. I got paid $27 for about an hour of my time. Not bad.

I worked a few more spark deliveries, and then I got a double order. One was in my trunk and one was in my backseat. I took the wrong order to the wrong person. Oops. That was a mess. It took me about 30 minutes to get all of that situated and corrected.

 I hope I don't have to pay for the groceries. But if I do, so be it. I made a mistake I won't make again.

What I have learned in 2021

Every year, during my birth month, I take the time to write down the 10 top things I learned that year.

I nearly forgot all about it this year, I've been so busy!

For some, the COVID epidemic has been a curse that has brought depression among many. But, for me, COVID has created the way in which I now make my living as a courier and taxi driver.

Hey, if life gives you lemons...well, I did my best to make lemonade!

I have learned a lot this year. Not just in the way I make my living, but also in my relationships and my spiritual growth.

Here goes:

1. Don't waste your time and energy on people who don't appreciate what you have to offer. Make the offer, then walk away and hope they follow. If they don't, it's their loss.

2. It's best not to talk about what you are going to do. (yeah, FAIL) It's better to talk about what you have done and why.

3. Internet Dating is cheap and it devalues those involved. It is too easy to scam someone over the internet, or lie, or omit information. A relationship should always be based on REAL. (I already knew all this...I just found out a whole lot better about why this year).

4. Always have a plan B, and it doesn't hurt to have a plan C, too.

5. Stay objective when you find yourself intwined in a situation you are not sure about. Stepping outside the problem to look inside is the best way to see the whole picture.

6. Always follow your gut instinct...but make sure it is based on good information, and not on emotional fear.

7. Love is not something you's something you do. (I think I included this on other years as well, but it is worth a re-do, because I was reminded of this over and again this year.

8. Sometimes the best respect you can give someone is to walk away from them.

9. When you pray, there are three possible answers: Yes, No, and Not right now. If you don't get what you want, it could mean "No", or it could mean "Not right now". Because you don't know which answer it is, you should always accept the answer as "No" right now, and act accordingly. Acceptance is the first step toward letting go and letting God.

and finally,

10. Letting go means moving on and leaving it behind. It means looking forward and not back. If what you let go of is meant to be there, it will catch up with you later.

The song that best describes this year for me is:

Saturday, October 9, 2021


If there is one thing I have realized, it is that it actually takes faith to obey God.

How many times have you said, "I know I should do this (or that), but if I do, I am afraid this (or that) might happen."

What you need to realize is that it isn't about what YOU want to happen. It's about what God has planned for us.

When you step out of God's Will to do what YOU want to do, instead of what God has commanded you do, you are getting in the way of what God has planned for you.

Yes, there are times when you will say, "This is going to mess up everything I want...but if You say so...". God would rather hear that than, "I have a better plan. Let me take Your place."

If you want to mess up God's plans, He won't stop you, but you won't like it.

Remember that.

Beer Beans and Cornbread

Good morning, World!

Today is cleaning day.

I am getting ready to take a bath, and then give the dogs a bath today, while I am washing and drying clothes.

I am going to my mom's later. I'll take Otis this time, since Milo went last time. Mom is having beer beans and cornbread. The whole family is going to be there.
