This is not the picture from yesterday’s post…Look and you shall find.
Somewhere in the Bible it says…Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, and knock and the door will be opened. Have you ever put these words to the test? I have. I have been in the search for a small garden flag with a pineapple on it, because it is the symbol of southern hospitality. I don’t want to extend hospitality to anyone looking at my house, I want them to BUY the house. But I have to be subtle. Welcome as it says on the flag should get them in the house and maybe if I tell them that they can keep the little flag, the plant and the wreath on the door, this may entice them to buy the whole house. Let’s hope this cheap just created psychology of mine will work.
Let’s go back to ask, seek and knock. Yes, I have put these words to the test. And they work. Just with a little asterisk (*) next to each one of them. Take for example the garden flag with the pineapple on it. If I wouldn’t have gone all the way to the next town to continue on my search…guess what…I would still be waiting for the answer to my asking. In short, you can pray all you want, beg, cry and say that life is unfair, etc., etc., but if you don’t get off your derriere and do whatever it is your role to do…guess what…nothing is going to happen. You can read the Holy Book and wear yourself out, waiting for the Almighty to deliver your golden knight, but if you don’t do your due diligence, no golden knight, or pineapple garden flag as in my case is going to show up.
Whatever you ask, seek or are knocking for, do it with absolute faith…but get the ball rolling and get going. You have to meet your miracle half way. That’s the definition of faith. Expect things to happen, so go about your business as if they have already happened.
Sister Happy Contessa has spoken for today, another out of this world beautiful, and I mean, beautiful day…I found what I had been asking for. But I had to drive for one hour to find it. Such is life.
Do you think I was invited to a party at our neighboring nuclear plant facility? No…I was getting ready to go out and clean my lanai (screened porch for non-southerners). The pollen is so bad, it gets into anything and everything and then it is misery to infinity and beyond.
So…it was April 7th, 2011 in Happyville after having received an answer to ask and you shall receive.
Your Happy Contessa
