A Million Dollar Friday Five

Here is the Revgals Friday quiz. Singing Owl has put up an amazing quiz on this week after Easter. It is what happens to clergy after Easter--we turn into TV junkies! Just kidding!

Lingering effects of a cold have me watching more television than usual. There appears to be a resurgence of the old daytime staple--the quiz show. Except they are on during prime time, and a great many of them offer the chance of winning one million dollars.

I think it started with Regis Philbin and "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" but now we have a half dozen or so.

My husband and I started musing (after watching "Deal or No Deal") about what we could do with a million dollars. I thought I'd just bring that discussion into the Friday Five this week. It's simple. What are five things you would want to do with a million dollar deposit in your bank account?

I guess I have always dreamed of hitting the lottery. But I don't know how to buy a ticket--it says tons about my faith in such things. But you can always dream.

1. The first thing I would do is pay off my debts and back taxes.

2. The second thing is buy a house or a condo.

3. The third thing is visit J' relatives on the West Coast.

4. Take a trip to the Holy Land. J and I have been preaching about this place for over 30 years and have never seen it.

5. Contribute to some of the organizations that I think do a good job for the world that I haven't been able to support.

A million smackers????
I guess it's all about perspective;
instead of a beverly hills type swimming pool I have a beatiful winding tree lined river that runs for miles and miles. Instead of a chandier dripping with diamonds I have the whole night sky that's filled with stars that shine just as well as diamonds or better! Instead of a million smackers I have Christ which is about all the abundance I could ever ask for and then some. The Lord is my shepard I shall not want..... He maketh me to lie down in green pastures
He leadeth me besides still waters
.......... God loves me and after I have HIM everything else is added unto me........... I want for nothing because HE sees to it that it is so. Ask ye shall receive.
