Questions!?! Have I not been good enough…!?! What else must I do!?! What else possibly can I do to show you that I’m true? Have I not paid the rent and mastered the utility bills? Have I not furnished the house, and even added frills? Haven’t I taken care of the children’s school supplies? Provided food, clothing and shelter – and told you no lies? Have I not been steadfast, and persisted for better or worse? Have I not looked out for you and yours and didn’t once curse? Have I not assisted with the chores: washing, cooking or cleaning? Have I not frequently showed you appreciation with meaning? Have I not comforted, listened, encouraged and shown love daily? Have I not made wise decisions and guided the family wholly? Have I not been true to my words through evidence by actions? Have I not been trustworthy in all relations and transactions? If your answer is YES, why all this stress; why, no rest? Tell me, how can I possibly do better than my absolute best? End By: Dion O. Penville

I think God only knows what our limitations are that is why he wants us to keep trying. Well set out piece that asks question we are all thinking. Best regards David in NZ
