I don’t think it’s amusing at all. Before I frantically dumped all my millions in inheritance, making the choice to start over from scratch, taking my family into a life of poverty, to escape a family secret that would soon take my life if I didn’t cut all ties and leave, I received phone calls DAILY from “friends” needing help desperately with one thing or another – an electric bill, clothes for their children, food for their children, a car, on and on and on. http://www.lailannhaynes.wordpress.com
I still get an occasional call from someone who has no idea how my life has changed, asking if I will help them out like I always did before. Now, what is humorous is that once I tell them I am no longer an “heiress” to an oil and natural gas fortune, plus thousands of acres of ranch, I NEVER HEAR FROM THEM AGAIN. That’s humorous.
I will admit it hurts very badly though, all the “friends” who have become NON EXISTENT unless they need emotional support from me, or still hold onto some kind of hope I have money to get them through whatever trial is presently at hand for them. Very few have listened to God‘s whispers and actually asked, “Lail, you have done so much for me for decades. What can I do for you now that you are in need.”.
That’s not amusing or humorous. It’s sad and hurtful. True colors are always revealed. There are just some like me who will never say a word to you that you have a tell all bugger on your nose as to the TRUTH OF WHO YOU ARE IN YOUR HEART. People are smarter than we give them credit for. Users and Abusers don’t even realize they have a great big spotlight shining their true identity for us all to see.
Just a little rant. I’m pretty good at that sometimes. Do something kind today for someone in need, please. Love in God.

Angels In Disguise
by Lail Ann Haynes
Have you ever seen an angel,
Real and true to life???
Would you recognize the halo,
If the angel was far from perfect,
And going through times of trial, struggle, and strife?
What if she posed as an alcoholic,
And fought drug addiction too,
Stuck in a dangerous domestic situation,
But she came and exposed it just to you?
Would you be self-centered and judgmental,
Or would you see the signs and believe it was true,
Spend time trying to find the answers,
And pray to God for guidance in what to do?
Do you ever stop and wonder,
Just how many angels come into your life?
The homeless guy holding up the sign,
The man in the hospital,
Sitting next his sickly wife.
What if 100 angels came,
And visited you personally every single year?
Would you walk on by egotistically,
Or stop to comfort and dry their tear?
What if the angel came to you in animal form,
A puppy needing a safe, loving home?
Would you open up your doors with love,
Or turn your head in disregard,
And let it battle life in fear,
Wondering our land all alone?
What if God designated you as an angel,
Blessing you with way more than you need?
Would you earn your wings by helping out,
Or sell your soul and live in greed?
What if an angel was put here on earth,
Simply to make you think?
Open up your heart to all possibilities,
Before your chance passes you by,
And your soul to fire begins to sink…
Not all our stories will have a happy ending,
This I’m sure you knew.
Ask yourself a simple question,
Will you open your eyes to see that halo,
Or walk through your life blindly,
Choosing to live without a clue?
