RENTERS INSURANCE

RENTERS’ INSURANCE

Came into the Common Room

To write, banishing gloom…

Found a brochure

For the uninsured,

“My wife wants to find us some, soon!”

A new insurance agent in town

Spread his brochure around…

Can he make offers

Kindly to coffers,

Perhaps we’ll policies “sound.”

THE GOOD LORD PROVIDES

THE GOOD LORD PROVIDES

 

Our coffers emptied by month’s end

With no relief in sight…

We were discouraged by our needs,

Nothing to make them right.

I’d had a flat, put on the spare,

A “donut” with limited time…

No finances left in reserve

While bills continued to climb.

We received hope from a friend

Who sent us a nice check…

Ostensively to reconnect our phone,

It was used when the spare tire wrecked.

Allowing us some breathing time

Until the next payday…

Also cashed out some vacation time,

We could use it right away!!!!

I’m learning to eat less

And save more for bills…

We cannot give the way we’d like,

Unless we change our will.

Provision in survival

With God’s special time…

Learning to manage better,

In His eyes will be fine.
