Whose Money is it?

Whose Money is it?

by Phoebe Leggett “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord. ‘Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11) Hey Kids: Can you put God first in everything, including money? 1.  Learn early on how to manage your money. God asks for ten percent of what we earn. The ten percent is called tithe. 2.  Ask God for guidance in every purchase and remember money earned is because God gives us the ability to work. 3.  A gift of money is to be treasured. Spend wisely. Phoebe Leggett Author, Poet, Freelance Writer Author of It’s My Time to Grieve Visit me online at...

Cookies

All afternoon four neighborhood girls played hard in Dominic’s yard, perfecting cartwheels and tumbling in the grass. Later as they spralled on the lawn, the wind gently bent the grass in waves of green as a soothing breeze softened the ripened heat of Indian summer.

Be thankful for what you have.” Collin looked down, embarrassed. Then he noticed a wad of green paper on the floor. He picked it up and unrolled the small bundle. “Look Mom. It’s money!” “Let me see.” Collin handed the bills to her. “Eight-hundred dollars,” she said after she counted it. “You found eight-hundred dollars!” “Now I can buy all the video games I want.” “This money isn’t...

FOOD FOR THOUGHT by Phoebe Leggett

FOOD FOR THOUGHT by Phoebe Leggett

Food gained by fraud tastes sweet,  but one ends up with a mouth full of gravel. Proverbs 20:17 Today is the first day of the rest of your life. How many have heard this cliche? Well, it’s true. Beginning the new year can come with many challenges. One challenge may be what to eat that will keep us healthy but is fun to devour. Fruits and vegetables should be at the top of your list of good things to eat. It’s best to learn how to read labels on food. What to watch for are ingredients such as fructose – or its relative, high-fructose corn syrup. Other food fillers that aren’t natural for human consumption may have funny-sounding names. If you don’t understand what it is, chances are you don’t need to eat it. After drinking a...
