the jones'


Does anyone know the Jones'? I've been looking for them diligently. I've
googled them, people searched them, sent up smoke signals for them. My next
step is to hire a private detective. I've got to find them. I've reached my mid
life crisis and I need to get some first hand advice. By all accounts
something has to be missing. I have to find out what the Jones have that I
don't have. Am I out of the loop? What new gadget have I missed out on. I'm too
content with what I have, that's not natural from all the magazines articles I've read. I have a T.V in everyroom (some no bigger than my head, okay, maybe that comparison isn't the best), a pool that I blow up,(I'm not a terrorist in training, it's a pool you fill with air) a car to get me places, (it should have a taxi sign on the roof as many people as I tote around),I have a house that is two years from being completely mine.(Yippee, I'm going to have an old fashion morgage burning), My two kids are grown and on their own,(well at least not under my roof). I have a cell phone, computer, pda.etc. etc. etc.I have a wonderful job, I'm satisfied with my paycheck, it pays the bills with something left over (I usually buy gum with the change) I have all the clothes I require,(I'm never naked, my friends take up a collection to assure this never happens) The clothes in my closet(s) cover all my weight ranges. The outfits for my thin self are being eaten by moths however, when I get back down to those sizes I'll probably have to tell people they are crocheted one of a kind items.

What is missing? I must have a deficiency of something. I'm always hearing that I have to keep up with these Jones'. If they set the gold standard I desperately want to locate them, (maybe standards are all I seem to be lacking. I hear they have the perfect house (one that doesn't need repairs and has room for everything,) perfect job (one that they are indespensable at), perfect husband,(looks like Fabian so be careful, all the other women want him too), perfect kids(always say yes m'am, no sir and never ask for money), perfect car(never needs maintaince and never gets a speeding ticket), perfect boats (accomadates all their friends they want to impress), perfect bodies (these are bodies they hire to train them to have perfect bodies!) None of the Jones' I've encountered yet fit the content category, they aren't satisfied with what they have. Perfect is never good enough for them. They keep leaning out of the carosal to reach for the unattainable gold ring. They are trying to keep up with someone else, another family of Jones'. So there must be an ultimate Jones I haven't run across yet. Please, step forward if you're the perfect, at the top of the heap Jones. As for me,I'm convinced I'm delusional. I feel perfectly content with what I have and only replace things as they wear out. My husband had better be careful.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
