a Funny Thing happened at the Bar
As I have stated in earlier posts I live on a farm on the outskirts of Cape Town at the very bottom of Africa. (Have you ever wondered why the north pole is always depicted as being on the top of the world while the south pole lies at the bottom although I still feel like I'm standing on top of the world?)
Well over the past six months I've been helping the owners of one of these restaurants with it's obligatory bar attached without any compensation whatsoever. Now I'm not exactly in a position to do this but since I really believed in the owner of said eating (and drinking) establishment I was willing to help him get started.
Now you must understand what I in fact have done for these people, I built their bar,
Please don't misunderstand me I was really annoyed at this attitude to put it mildly and of course all the ways I could get even came flooding into my mind and believe me there are many many ways, all of them possible but in the eyes of God all of them wrong. So what can I do other that to trust God and walk away with a clear conscience knowing that I have done nothing wrong and leaving the whole thing in God's hands.
So here I am still on my farm on the outskirts of Cape Town at the very bottom of Africa (which I believe is under the world although I feel on top of the world) with joy in my heart and with no bad feelings at all. It is rather funny and although I'm broke I really am on top of the world.
God bless you all my friends and please leave a comment. This is one of the funniest things that I've ever gone through and I learned a lesson in forgiveness. Have you ever had a bad experience that has turned out hilarious in the end?
