Enough Already

In my area we have only two choices for an internet provider. We went with the one we thought was the best. Until the last few years we were satisfied with the provider and never had any issues.

It had gotten to where I was seeing more political ads and commercials than the programs that I was watching. My bill kept increasing without me making any changes until it got to the point of being ridiculous. The most cost was for television.

A while back my sister told me about Apps. I love music and she had told me about an App that I could use for free to listen to tons of music. I really enjoy it.

Recently she and I have been discussing Apps and commercials. She has told me about many other Apps that I can use to see movies, news, weather, and other things. Best of all they are free to use.

I was fed up with seeing so many commercials and the cable bill being so high. With my cable provider I had TV, internet and phone bundled. I didn’t know if what I wanted, they would do or not.

I contacted the provider and spent much time off and on with several people online and on the phone. They kept trying to get me to make changes that I didn’t want, but I stood my ground. Finally, I got what I wanted without having to switch providers.

My sweet sister spent a lot of time researching Apps and helping me get all set up so I could get the best Apps for what I wanted to watch on TV. She is like a bloodhound when it comes to finding something. I appreciate her so much; she has researched not only Apps but a lot of things for me.

I can now view all I want to, there are still commercials but not as many and they are shorter, best of all I am not having to pay to watch more commercials than programs. I still have my phone and internet; they gave me faster internet and I am loving it.

My cable bill went down $200.00, and I am incredibly happy about that. I made a wise decision. Sometimes we just need to hang in until we get what we want.

Words People Say

Words I am hearing people say…

“It is hard to believe so many people we know have this horrible virus.”

“More and more people we know are contracting the virus.”

Well, it is not hard for me to believe. For months people have been ignoring the fact that we need to stay home if possible, but if we must go out in public, wear a mask. practice social distancing and attend no large gatherings.

Thousands have been gathering in large groups, not wearing masks nor social distancing and now it is hard for them to believe that they themselves, family members, friends and other people they have been in contact with have the virus and some have died from it.

They think they can do whatever they want and God will protect them. I am one who believes that God is always with us through everything we go through, but I do not believe that we can do things on purpose that we have been told would be dangerous to others and even ourselves and expect God to come to our rescue.

We were given ‘free will’ and when we choose to do something that the consequences could be very unpleasant, dangerous or deadly we just have to live with them.

WARNING DANGER AHEAD!!

“Lord, there is a stop sign and I should stop…but I am in a hurry and I know you will protect me.”

It is possible you could make it running that stop sign without any issues BUT it is also possible you could get a ticket, injure or kill someone, or you could have been injured or died. God had nothing to do with that…you chose to run the stop sign.

“Lord, there has been a flood and there are signs saying not to drive through the water across the roadway but…I need to get to the store and then home, so please keep me safe, thank you Jesus.”

Well, now you are in your vehicle in the middle of deep, rushing water and your car won’t run and you can’t get out of it. Someone has to come rescue you before or after you drowned. At the very least your vehicle is probably ruined. That was your choice to drive into that water not God’s and you were warned.

“Lord, I know there is a terrible virus spreading across our country and they say we should stay home if possible, but if we have to get out we should wear a mask and social distance. But I know you are with me in all things and you will keep me safe so I don’t have to do any of that. I should just carry on with my life like usual.”

You made that choice and now you are seeing your family members, friends and yourself with the virus and it is hard for you to believe? What is so hard to believe about it…the answer is simple it is because you chose to not heed the warnings and carry on with life as usual.

The Lord does not protect us from the consequences of our foolish and ridiculous decisions we have to live with the results of those decisions.

It would not be easy to live with the fact that a loved one has the virus and is very ill or someone died because one chose to not heed the warnings about the terrible virus.

Please stay home if possible, wear a mask and social distance if you must get out, do not go in a public place where anyone is not wearing a mask. Do not attend large gatherings, only stay around people living in your home. That is a small price to pay for a short time to keep the virus from spreading and protect others and ourselves.
