Wishing I Were Rich

This rich business has me interested. Instead of castigating those who are rich, I find myself wanting to say I think it’s downright cool to be rich. Just being honest, here. Just think what I could do: travel the world on a cruiseship, build a church for Christ Alive in Lake Havasu, fund every home missionary for a year, and every foreign missionary I could think of, hand out hundred dollar bills to strangers, buy Rebecca a new car . . . you get the idea.

Oh, I know I’m rich in other ways: friends, family, knowing Jesus . . .

Yet, I persist in thinking it is cool to be rich–money rich. If I were rich, I would smile and preen as did this gull I met in San Francisco a few weeks ago.

What say you? Wish you were rich? Are you rich? Problems with being rich?

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 84 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 63 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)
