Woman Finds 2 out of 3 Headlines Disappointing


Seeing a headline about a good paying job consisting of living on an island, I clicked to read the article.  Hmm, duties include writing a blog and taking pictures.  That I can do.  And snorkeling.  Uh, oh, that sounds like in the water, even under.  That I don’t do.  Must be a strong swimmer.  Well, there goes that, eliminated before I even apply.  My husband told me later they had so many inquiries that their server went down.

 

Houses as low as $1000.  Wow!  At that price one could buy a house and give it back to the people who are getting thrown out.  But no, it’s not that simple.  One is obligated to bring the building up to code and pay taxes.  What a complicated system we have devised.

Now for the third one–a good article about marriage. (I am speaking from over 30 years experience.)

There is just one phrase to which I would take exception:
“Transforming a full-grown man — stripping him of decades-old habits, beliefs, and idiosyncrasies — is truly an impossible task.”

It is true that one should not get married hoping to do this.  It is true that one cannot do that for someone else, but a person can do so to him/herself. This is the essence of what “The Revelation of Arès” calls penitence. It is difficult, it takes time, but it is not impossible. I see it happening before my very eyes.

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
