YEA! Made it another year. I turned 78 on Mother's Day

Using my theme from the past 2 years, I am not two thirds of a Boing 787. I will have to come up with some new clever way to announce my age next year as there is no Boing 797 yet. One thing that has not changed is that SP has given me the inspiration to make a huge life style change and I am now down over 60 pounds and within one half pound of my original goal weight. Still not satisfied so I am setting a new goal weight of 165 pounds.

I now know that the road to success is always ...

I now know that the road to success is always under construcion, but I have made the 165 pound goal. WOO HOO. Now I need to address my fitness program. I am not a good exerciser so there is a huge amount of room for improvement.

hi Frank. I just read your Blog and made a comment.
Then I went to continue to see what emails I had received and this one was in my In Box...
I thought of you and wanted to share it with you.

Father, I WANTED A CAR, NOT A BIBLE

A young man was getting ready to graduate from college. For many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealers showroom, and knowing his father could well afford it, he told him that was all he wanted.

As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited signs that his father had purchased the car. Finally, on the morning of his graduation, his father called him into his private study, told him how proud he was to have such a fine son, and how much he loved him. He handed him a beautifully wrapped gift box.

Curious, but somewhat disappointed, the young man opened the box and found a lovely, leather-bound Bible, with his name embossed in gold.
Angrily, he raised his voice to his father and said,"With all your money you give me a Bible?" He stormed out of the house, leaving the Bible behind.

Many years passed and the young man was very successful in business. He had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realized his father was very old. He thought perhaps he should go to him. He had not seen him since that graduation day. But before he could make arrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to
him. He needed to come home immediately and take care of things.

When he arrived at his father's house, sadness and regret filled his heart. He began to search through his father's important documents and saw the Bible, new, just as he had left it years ago. With tears, he opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. His father had carefully underlined a verse, Matt 7:11, "And if ye, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Heavenly Father which is in Heaven, give to those who ask Him?"

As he read those words, a car key dropped from the back of the Bible. It had a tag with the dealers name, the same dealer who had the sports car he had desired. On the tag was the date of his graduation, and the words... PAID IN FULL.

How many times do we miss God's blessings because they are not packaged as we expected?
