Neighbors helping neighbors

We had an incredible snow storm that left 30 or more inches on the ground. So today it was all about digging ourselves out.





 Then our amazing neighbors came with their snow blower to rescue us and help. Mr. Dan and Mrs. Lecrecia.


Once we had enough of our driveway done, we walked next door to Mr. Chris' to help him get out. 

 

We have a narrow pathway but we are able to get the car out, and that is what matters. 
 

It was amazing to watch the body of Christ in motion. Many people were out, and many were helping one another get there their driveways with snowblowers and escavators with buckets on the front. 

Thank you Lord for wonderful people that surround us!

Returning

They say you always return to what you know or  are comfortable with. After having my own website, and domain name I have decided it is a waste of money. I don't blog to make money. I blog t0 make a difference in people's lives for Christ. I blog for myself as well. To help those who are struggling as I am, to guide others in the world, and to just release like only words can.

2016 what will bring for me, for my family, for this blog, well lets walk this journey together


Solo para la gloria de Dios Angie

Pyramids

You know what discourages me about pyramid companies. They all say the same things, give health, financial freedom etc etc. I have two life long friend who just started Essante products and that is all I hear about her stuff and company and another is a Plexxus promoter. Sad because I am not thinking the products are bad but like anything else you have to get people to join but not just join,buy... And everyone believes their products are the best. So what is truth?!

You can't tell and don't really know because if you are a good sales person you will say yours is, and she will say hers is, but in the end it costs, you have to buy product whether you need it or not. Everyone's product have all these health benefits for you and they are all made naturally. Now one company reminds me of Shaklee ( are they even around anymore) while the other reminds me of Herbalife or some other of the many health company pyramids that are out there.

We are so bondard with these pyramids it's frustrating. Friendships turn into sales pitches! Facebook and Instagram no longer have family and life photos but company pictures and video sale pitches.

The thought of having a pay check by convincing people they need a product and it involves no physical work. I wonder is that biblical? Didn't the Lord say we are to work by the sweat of our brow?
Insert from Federal Trade Commision "Not all multilevel marketing plans are legitimate. If the money you make is based on your sales to the public, it may be a legitimate multilevel marketing plan. If the money you make is based on the number of people you recruit and your sales to them, it's not. It's a pyramid scheme. Pyramid schemes are illegal, and the vast majority of participants lose money."

It's to hard to know what is a scam and what isn't and nothing is done for minimal work. Every person who believes they have succeed in these pyramids let the people they have signed up stop buying product or cancel their "memberships" and there goes your paycheck. There is no security and no such thing as hubby retiring early.

Sorry ladies there is no quick get rich thing out there without working by the sweat of your brow. Just like there is no such thing as instant weight loss- nope got to work at it.

So keep your money in your pocket, where it is safe and don't fall for the next best company scheme.
