True Wealth Lies Hidden in Subtle Places
--by bibirose, posted Nov 27, 2007
My hubby is an unusual salesperson.
He simply presents the service or the item to you & leaves the decision to the individual. (He does not take kindly to pushy salespeople). A few weeks ago, though, he resigned from his job when the Big Bosses wanted him to deceive the people so he could get more sales. In his resignation he said that as a Christian he could not lie. (What good moral person could?)
As a result, he's been walking into town (no car at the moment) handing out his resume to various businesses.
I've said all that to say this ... Even though we have had to pull in our belt a fair bit, we haven't been wanting because friends have secretly placed money & gift cards in our pockets or my handbag or on my seat where we go to Fellowship. No one comes up to us & says "Hey, I want to give you this $100." It's always subtle and sensitive.
Just this morning, I was handing a friend some magazines that I knew would bless her and in between these magizine, I noticed an envelope with my name & Hubby's name, inside $100 plus $200 gift card which I'll be able to use to do the weekly shopping! In the last few weeks we have received over $500. Though the money is very very handy, it's the willingness and kindness of friends that touches our hearts so deeply.
A close intimate relationship with God and friends who love & accept you, just like you, is what I call true wealth! So the next time someone asks you if you are rich, say, "No, but I sure am wealthy!"
My hubby and my sons, have lost Dhs5 Million last year, 2006:Gone with the wind,but the 'The Almighty' has gifted is good health, great peace and our dignity intact.
What more can a family want.Unity to the core.The truth will always shine.
Keep that smile on,
