6/9/2022 – Day late and a dollar short

We normally send out our e-newsletter every other Tuesday. I'm working on it now - on Wednesday - and realized that I am, in fact, a "day late."  That immediately made me think about the old saying "A day late and a dollar short."  Most of us feel more than a dollar short right now, so it is a poignant reminder of our times.

I cannot help but think of those who regularly live paycheck to paycheck.  This can happen for a myriad of reasons and I don't want to get down in the weeds on the 'whys' of that right now.  The reality is that many people do live with very little margin and I can imagine that the current gas and food prices are creating anxiety and concern. 

My thoughts turn to the fast food worker who served my drive-thru lunch today.  He was kind and efficient and served me well.  I know he does not get paid a lot and I drove away, praying for him.  I bet life, at least his financial life, is especially hard right now.

Please take a minute to listen to this beautiful song, designed to help you meditate on and memorize John 16:33.  I hope it helps you focus on a God who is "right on time and never lacking anything!"
