    What It Means To Be Poor... One day a father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the firm purpose of showing his son how poor people can be. They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family. On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, "How was the trip?" "It was great, Dad." "Did you see how poor people can be?" the father asked. "Oh Yeah" said the son. "So what did you learn from the trip?" asked the father. The son answered, "I saw that we have one dog and they had four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon. We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight. We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them." With this the boy's father was speechless. Then his son added, "Thanks dad for showing me how poor we are." Too many times we forget what we have and concentrate on what we don't have. What is one person's worthless object is another's prize possession. It is all based on one's perspective. Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for all the bounty we have, instead of worrying about wanting more.

    Verily I say unto ye..........
    It can buy a house
    But not a home
    It can buy a clock
    But not time
    It can buy you a position
    But not respect
    It can buy you a bed
    But not sleep
    It can buy you a book
    But not knowledge
    It can buy you medicine
    But not health
    It can buy you blood
    But not life
    So you see money isn't everything
    And it often causes pain and suffering

    “The wording group that separates, deports and splits wide apart many “MY” by enshrining and ingraining the lonelineness, hollowness & fakeness of “ONE” is “M-ONE-Y”.”
