Yesterday, I was thinking of my Grama Ruby and how she taught me to "use what I have." The green, marble earring had belonged to her and after it broke, she wound all that thread on it, trying to fix it. On days when I'm tempted to want something newer or better, I often think of this earring.
"Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." Hebrews 13:5
