    I have been out of work for several weeks now. It has been a tough time, but each day I see God's blessing and hand in my situation.

    As I went through the aisle I made sure I bought items that were on sale or were buy one, get one free. By doing so I was able to save $12 on a $31 purchase.

    When I went to check out there was a vase of six beautiful pink roses at the end of the checkout counter.

    Forgotten, was the support of white fans when Joe took on Max Schmelling, a white man, but also a German citizen. Seems it was a case in favor of an American over a foreigner.
