Much ado about nothing. The kids have  probably picked out the cars and the houses they want, and are muttering under their breaths, " Mom, if you screw this money up, we are going to hate you for life". If she is such a religious person, why is she getting mad at God for giving her a blessing, why is she questioning divine intervention?  Maybe this individual is just full of doo-doo.

        Why does Blake have to tell her Pastor anything about her playing the lottery? When one gives into fear about what their religious leaders may think on personal matters- it becomes a personal descent into the Abyss.

        People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.

          This is the cupboard where I store my dangs.  As you can see, it is empty. 


          But, for a small donation, I can have it fully stocked.

            Don't worry little old church lady. Your Pastor will tell you exactly how much you should give to him and his church to make your sin all better. Hint, it won't be a one time payment.

            Lol, That's what I was thinking.Yes Nod

                "The Florida Lottery paid Blake $3,750,000 — her winnings minus taxes — and sent out a news release Thursday about her good fortune, though she pleaded with the agency to neither photograph her nor identify her. The photo is optional, but identification is not, Florida Lottery spokeswoman Shelly Gerteisen said."


                Florida should allow winners to remain anonymous.  Fay Blake will come enormous pressure from friends and family. It is not only unjust it is potentially very dangerous.

                We all get a lot out of lotteries!

                  Give it all all away, fund some libraries, hospitals, playgrounds, homeless shelters etc etc and quit crying lady. If she did not want to win money the solution was simple, don't play at all.

                    Of all the Law of Attraction fans that are here on LP how many have won a jackpot?

                    Maybe this woman's approach is a better idea!

                    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.


                    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                        Why didn't she make the effort to create a trust, then her name would NOT have been announced? DUH.

                          I think it's time for her to put her big girl pants on and stop the drama.

                          If she was that ashamed, she wouldn't have cashed the ticket.

                          She didn't want anyone to know she won, hmmm..Maybe because she knows everyone will have their hand out looking for a piece of her pie.

                          Enjoy your windfall lady, it's your money and you owe nobody an explanation or a cut.

                              Poor Fay,

                              Her pastor is going to probably brow beat her for a tenth of that prize money as minimum amount, with additional advice to donate to other good causes.

                               She doe not have to explain"her moment of weakness" to her pastor, if she feels it's a sin to gamble, then all she needs to do is repent to the Lord.

                              If she fears the shaming from her church; she needs to find a new church.  But suspect  the members will be hinting for assistance from Fay.

                              Pray she is wiser than the serpent.
