There's more to life than money

As a PF blogger and someone who grew up very poor... i tend to live, breathe, and constantly think about money. This morning's devotional made me realize that I need to take some moments and breathe, because simply there is more to life than thinking about savings, debt, credit, and retirement all the time.

Anyone ever read this verse?

Matthew 6:25-27, "That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life--whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn't life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don't plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren't you far more valuable to him than they are?" (NLT)

It reminds me that everything will be taken care of, and when I look back I my life I know God has always taken care of me. Today I'm smiling because of that, and because of have faith that "all things work together for the good".

I got paid today, but I'm not focused on the money. I'm glad I have a good husband, a job, friends, and family and an outlet where I can write my thoughts... because there is really more to life than money.

until next time, think prosperous thoughts

Hi,

First of all I must confess that I've become jealous of your site http://youngblackandprosperous.blogspot.com/ after seeing it for the first time.

Actually I was going through your site, promptly dazzled by its design and witnessed many a great posts on personal finance, with lots of information.

However, I have some quality financial websites on debt, budgeting and bankruptcy with good PR, and very less OBL to maintain its quality.And It'd be a great experience for our readers if we combine our sites by the following methods :

1. Article Exchange
2. Link exchange
3. Review Exchange

It would be great to work with you, to build a bridge between two legitimate & reputable site would be beneficial for the visitors, as well as for us.

I maintain the following websites and blogs:

* http://www.monsterhols.com
* http://www.fileyourbankruptcy.org/
* http://www.weredefine.com/
* http://www.savedude.com/
* http://darngoodblogging.com/

Looking forward to your positive reply. Have a nice day!
