Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. Matthew 13:43
Let Your Light So Shine!
The way all free men are supposed to live.
Po’ Girl Shines is up and shining at last. I plan on writing about all kinds of things that have to do with saving money by living simply but well in my blog. The website is a quick overview of frugal living tips and information on everything from health to finances. There will be info on how to garden & safely store your bounty. I will advise how to clean and garden organically, provide hints and tips on how to cut costs in many areas of your life. I will show projects and give information needed to complete them in all areas of interior and exterior decorating, various arts, crafts & sewing. This is tried and true information that I have used most of my life and only now are other websites and TV programs promoting the way I have always lived. Since I am an expert on living on the cheap, I want to share what I know to help in any way I can now that things are really tough all over.
I want this website to encourage others to go from surviving to thriving without a lot of money that is normally wasted due to popular media hype and/or misinformation. We receive continuous messages that we cannot live without certain products or services but in many cases we could take our lives to a higher and more satisfying level by doing more things ourselves, as we were meant to.
Man was not created to be micro-managed by other men. God did not intend for wars and abuse, but for all of his people to love one another. Man is not supposed to be pitted against one another in some mad race that can never be won. Life is not a competition. We are here, with all living things, to live in harmony and it cannot be any other way. We need to have enough genuine love and self-confidence so that we do not feel the need to topple or control others. We are supposed to gently admonish those that go astray. I have nothing to say regarding those that entertain or commit actual evil.
There are so many things that we can do at this time to help one another. The first is to help yourself so that you can be a help to others that actually need it. Our society needs to be reorganized to allow for actual freedom and to stop thinking of people as consumers. There has been a steady downfall of civilization since mass consumerism and capitalism has become the way of the world. The fact that healthcare is big business in America means that profits are the most important thing. This fact alone makes modern medicine potentially dangerous. God knew what He was doing when He created everything. Man knows nothing, but thinks he does. No one should get rich off of another person’s misery and never should financial burden be added to those that are ill or dying or to their families. Most of us would be better off with much less meddling in our lives and health by people who are touted as experts but whose findings are speculative at best. We would be better off not being involved in all the experimentation and without many of the medications that are now considered the norm. If man just ate real food the sun shines on without pesticides, not packaged or processed, exercised and decreased some of the stress the world’s demands cause they wouldn’t need much doctoring. Stress and obesity are the leading cause of most illness now treated. Since I know that overeating is caused by stress that makes stress the real culprit and other men the major cause. This brings us back to the Golden Rule.

Like you, I’m a big fan of frugal living! Why spend, spend, spend all the time when we’re surrounded by riches already? (Not that we can always recognize them, which may be another reason why folks keep trying to buy their peace and love.)
Kudos to you, good points. And thanks for the “like”!!

Neither do men light a lamp, and put it under a bushel, but on a lamp stand; and it gives light unto all that are in the house.
Nice to see you’re letting your light shine for all.
Peace to you too! Debbie 🙂
