Y worry?

a Biblical thought...
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. (Mark 13:31)

a Book thought...
Sometimes our best learning moments come through a conflict, a challenge, a failure, or a period of waiting. (p110 Logan & Miller)
a Dave thought... from The Age
Recession? What recession, according to a generation of young people who have grown up with full employment, low interest rates and a buoyant economy.
While more than two out of three Australians say they intend to cut back spending this Christmas, generation Y is planning a shopping spree according to a snapshot of more than 1000 Australians. And they will be spending $220 on average playing Santa Claus to themselves, more than double ($107) what the general population has budgeted for their own wish list this Christmas.

Many people this Christmas will be spending large amounts of money on presents, but for Gen Y who may not have the stress of investments, mortgages and the like it will be done carefree but let's also remember they will also be giving generously to many who have little as well.

Just a thought.
