Five Dollar Fine

This has always been one of my favorite signs. I finally bought one to put up in our home especially because we have been known to give fines for whining around here. What I didn't know was how much fun it would bring. When someone is tempted to whine we point to the sign (which hangs in our livingroom) and the start of a whine ends in a grin. Some of us have even been known to sing a song to go along with it - maybe you know the one :)

Martin Luther says:

"To be satisfied with what we have at present is positively a gift of the Holy Spirit."

"Nothing is better than to walk in the Word and the work of God and so
 to fashion one's heart that it is quiet and satisfied with the present state of affairs. . . .
The true despisers of the world are the people who accept what God gives them,
and gladly do without them if God takes them away."
