🍃While living and working abroad, both companies in #China and #SaudiArabia provided lodging for me free of charge. I simply had to steward what I received.🌿
🌿Five years ago, while teaching in China, I paid off the commercial debt that I had which was less than $1,000. My trip to #Antarctica cost $5,000+. I used savings to pay for it. Responsible stewardship is critical.🍃
🍃After my first year of teaching English in China, I returned home for a vacation and sold my luxury car (Volkswagen Eos, hardtop convertible) in order to achieve my seven by 30 goal. I simply broke even with that sell.🌿

Last night my sister, Kinesha Johnson-Roach, was returning from LA and her flight got delayed. Her bags were packed and she was on time for her departure. She waited with great anticipation to quickly return home to be with her husband and children. Her heart dropped when she looked up and heard that her flight would be delayed.
Immediately, I heard “His hold up may be your hook up.” and sent it to her and my sisters in our WhatsApp group chat.
Often times, we get flustered or frustrated by the “good things” that we have to wait for. In my travels, every single time there was a hold up, a hook up was not far from it.
