Specifically, the ceiling was at five and a half/six feet. She was bent and tiny and older than the dirt floor she walked on.
She was happy to have a visitor, and answered my questions politely.
It was her Home. She was happy there. When I returned the following Fall to follow up she had passed away.
I recently heard someone say that "The only way to be made to feel poor is to want more than you have."
The Apostle Paul said that he had learned to be content in all circumstance. He stood before Kings, and would have been just as comfortable visiting with the nice old lady.
Right now there is a humongous POWERBALL lottery prize which may be won Wednesday-over a Billion dollars (!) before the Government gets it's pound of flesh.
That 'Prize' would break most people-lives ruined, relationships changed...it's not worth it.
When that "winner" dies he or she will have the same empty hands as that nice lady in the hut had when she passed. We carry nothing into the next world.
Do you want Happiness? Be content with what God has given you.
If He gives you more, be content with that.
If He takes some or all of it away...you get the idea.
May God Bless you.
