Joan decided to redecorate. She wasn’t sure how many rolls of wallpaper she would need for the bedroom but she knew that Buffy next door had recently done the same job, and the two apartments were identical in size.
“Buffy,” she said, “How many rolls of wallpaper did you buy for your bedroom?”
“Ten,” said Buffy.
So Joan bought the ten rolls of paper and did the job, but had 2 rolls left over.
“Buffy,” she said, “I bought ten rolls of wallpaper for the bedroom, but I’ve got 2 left over!”
“Yeah,” said Buffy, “So did I.”
“I could enjoy my second childhood more if I was able to peddle my tricycle a little faster.”
Thought for the day
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Two things are vital for this to be a part of our lives. First, we must trust God to meet our needs. Second, we expect the power of the Holy Spirit to bless us and empower us with God’s qualities.
