I Prayed for Money...

... and God sent me work. The work is hot, humid and hard, but after almost two years of 15-20 hour work weeks it is nice to have 14 hour days of paying work. I'd rather be cartooning, but BofA won't take a stack of these to keep the house from foreclosure.

Funny how God gives us what we need, not what we want. I'm so glad you've got the work. After all, you've got to keep the house payments up so you'll have a place to sit and draw more Curmudgeophan cartoons when the work ends. Rumor has it there's some serious curmudgeonly goodness coming... :-)

All kidding aside, I'm glad for you. Keeping you in my prayers...

I'm happy for you.

btw What's that weird eye thing on top of the pyramid on that $50 bill?

BofA clearly don't know good stuff when they see it. I too am glad about the work. Mazel tov.

Thanking God that you have some work!

Amen!
Looking forward to more Curmudgeophan--I bet ideas will come to you while you're working...or is it too hot to think?

Working is good, even when we think it is not. I once thought it would be nice if I were right once and God wrong, and then I realized I didn't want that at all.

This is great news!

To paraphrase Evan Almighty: We pray for an answer and God sends us an opportunity.
(Actually, not bad for Hollywood.)

Clients often ask how they can make more money. History shows there are four proven ways.
First, pick your parents well. (It worked for the Queen.)
Second, pick your spouse well. This is a very old way to get more money (against which Chrysostom rails), though the price may be too high.
Third, create a product or business that offers unique value. (Messers Edison, Ford, Gates, Rockefeller and Jobs come to mind.)
Fourth, live well below your means and invest prudently.

I have been surprised to discover, as I have gotten older, that meaningful work is much more satisfying than most leisure.

I wish you as many profitable and productive hours of honest labor as you want.

Good news; so very happy for you.

I think you should sell Mudge-Dollar bumper stickers.

"In Moo we trust" indeed!

YAY for work!

Donna said...

Good, honest work is a blessing beyond measure, I have found. :)

Thank God! I'm glad to hear it.

Grace said...

Wait. BofA *won't* accept Curmudgeophan bucks? Well, there's *another* ream of paper that's worthless now. Thanks for nothing!

(Seriously, though, Hallelujah for answered prayer.)

(BTW, Chrys, if you're still tuned in, I think that's some of the purest distilled truth ever to grace a blog comment.)

Thank God for 12-16 hour days, I am right with from June til October. and am praying for other ways to make it through my off-season. I thought about hitting the gameshow circuit ;)
