Have you ever been between a rock and a hard place? Do you know what that means? Morton's Fork is the same thing. It is a situation offering at least two possibilities, neither of which are acceptable. 

A Morton's Fork is a specious piece of reasoning in which contradictory arguments lead to the same (unpleasant) conclusion. It is said to originate with the collecting of taxes by John Morton, Archbishop of Canterbury in the late 15th century, who held that a man living modestly must be saving money and could therefore afford taxes, whereas if he was living extravagantly then he was obviously rich and could still afford them. From Wikipedia 

Sometimes I shake my head and wonder if this isn't life in America right now. Terry and I both feel we are living between a rock and a hard place with all the changes in government, policies and everything else. I am still trying to figure out the 2014 tax bill. You never know when you come to the computer every morning what government scandal is occurring. Sure are a bunch of those.  

Just this morning I was on the phone with ATT ( A definite Love Hate Affair).  I have to pay a full month of service that I only used two days of.  At the same time I pay ahead a full month of service for the new service.  Only at ATT can you have your private number spoofed and sent out across the United States with your personal ID on it prank calling people. (Did I call you?)  

The only thing that saves you from any of this is trust in God.  I have to shake my head and then bow it to Him.  He is light and our hope.  

This week we celebrate family with my younger brother who is celebrating his birthday with a family gathering. Fun time, lots of family, babies to be held and fabulous food to eat. I will not be limited by the rock or the hard place!

Blessings, Laurie
