Quote:

I came across this Scripture and wanted to pass it along.


“The blessing of The Lord brings wealth, and he adds no trouble to it.” Proverbs 10:22

This reminds me of that old saying “you’re either sleeping well, or eating well.”

Well, the good news is that you can have both with God’s blessing!

It reminds me of when I was on Dancing with the Stars, especially the first time. I knew God’s plan for my life would always be bigger and better than a reality show. I knew whatever was to happen, would happen.

There’s freedom in that.

God has given me so much! That means I’m able to “sleep well,” and ”eat well” with all of his blessings.


First of all: what?

Second of all: huh?

This thing about her being on Dancing With the Stars, but she knew she would be bigger than Dancing With the Stars? Nope. No idea. Leave your take, in the posts below. Thanks!

Hmmmm, isn't that kind of like when a dog can walk on its hind legs?
It doesn't do it very well but still, you're amazed it can do it at all.

Wait, Bristol Palin writes? One of these things is not like the other. Or, is it, one of these things is not like the mother?

You are, of course, right NW_P. My first thought was: is Bristol Palin’s ghostwriter talking about being stricken by gout? Then I wondered about this "old saying," and looked it up, and it turns out that, yes, it is indeed a saying, if someone saying it in 1896 and then someone repeating it in a 2011 blog post makes it a "saying," which, of course it does.

This reminds me of the time in college, when a fellow department student paid me a hundred clams to write a paper on Anorexia for her, and I made it kind of stupid on purpose, with run-on sentences and such, so our professor wouldn't doubt she'd written it, and then I offered to give her her money back because I got her a D.

Do more better, Nancy French.

Do Sarah and Bristol Palin share the same ghostwriter?
