Do You Remember 1950?
These statements made me laugh; ahh those were the days:
2. “Have you seen the new cars coming out next year? It won’t be long when $5000 will only buy a used one.”
3. “If cigarettes keep going up in price, I’m going to quit. A quarter a pack is ridiculous.”
4. “Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging a dime just to mail a letter?”
5. “If they raise the minimum wage to $1, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store.”
6. “When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 29 cents a gallon. Guess we’d be better off leaving the car in the garage.”
7. “Kids today are impossible. Those ducktail hair cuts make it impossible to stay groomed. Next thing you know, boys will be wearing their hair as long as the girls,”
8. “I’m afraid to send my kids to the movies anymore. Ever since they let Clark Gable get by with saying damn in “Gone With The Wind,” it seems every new movie has either Hell or damn in it.”
9. “I read the other day where some scientist thinks it’s possible to put a man on the moon by the end of the century. They even have some fellows they call astronauts preparing for it down in Texas.”
10.”Did you see where some baseball player just signed a contract for $75,000 a year just to play ball? It wouldn’t surprise me if someday that they will be making more than the President.”
11. “I never thought I’d see the day all our kitchen appliances would be electric. They are even making electric typewriters now.”
12.”I’m just afraid the Volkswagen car is going to open the door to a whole lot of foreign business.”
13.”Thank goodness, I won’t live to see the day when the Government takes half our income in taxes. I sometimes wonder if we are electing the best people to Congress.”
14.”The drive-in restaurant is convenient in nice weather, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on.”
15.”There is no sense going away any more for a weekend. It costs nearly $15.00 a night to stay in a hotel.”
16. “No one can afford to be sick any more; $35.00 a day in the hospital is too rich for my blood.”
“Those WHY questions.”
When I talk, hear, and see many of you, I am constantly aware that the world we live in is very demanding. With those extra demands in our homes, with our children, and the social and work obligations in our lives, we have a lot of stress. We need to find a way to de-stress and find strength and calm in the midst of the chaos.
I love that verse in the Bible that says, “For I can do everything with the help of Christ who gives me the strength I need.” (Philippians 4:13, NLB)
It gives me great comfort to know that God’s telephone line is never busy. He will never put me on hold, and He does not have an answering service or voice mail. He takes all my calls quickly and personally.
There had been times in my life when he has not answered me right away, and sometimes he has even said no. I also recognize there will be times in my life when I will never know all the answers. Those are the WHY questions, the one’s I don’t understand. And there seems to be a lot of them these last few years.
Can I love him and trust him enough to accept the answers He gives me?
God does not always answer yes,
to every prayer I pray.
Sometimes He answers “No my Child,”
I have a better way.
Thank you for sharing your time with me today, dear friend. If you find and inspiration, love or laughter here, please share with the ones who might enjoy a giggle too.
