My disappointments lately....
I still have not heard from financial aid so as of tomorrow I will have to drop my classes. I can try again for the Spring. I still have not found a job. I thought I had a chance where my Daughter works but they don't hire family in the same building. We have 12.9 percent unemployment rate. I still have no hot water in over 2 months now and still owe the plumber who came to TRY and fix it. I just wish the Lord could pick me up and plop me where he wants me. So confusing.

Those words from last week keep coming to my mind when I said, "Forgive Us Our Grumbling". I am trying Lord! REALLY I am trying not to complain and offer up my little disappointments.

Prayers are always welcome my friends.

O yes and a friend at Church yesterday was so kind as to remind me that it is my fault I don't have a job. Because I have a way of allowing my children to run my life. Like my daughter didn't want me to get a job because she needs me to give her a ride to work and help get my granddaughter to school etc. but she doesn't pay me. I finally, worked my way up to letting her know that I have to find a job and she will just have to quit hers if she can't find transportation. She makes money and waste it on frivolous stuff and I go without. Like for example she spent over 400 dollars on my granddaughters birthday. I have never been able to spend more than money on cake and ice cream and if lucky a small gift, never mind feeding the neighborhood etc.

It sounds like the Lord is really filling your plate, so to speak. I will keep you in my prayers.
Hugs & Blessings!

Linda, that person is NOT a friend. True friends don't do that.

I sympathize about the money problem. I have a $500.00+ car insurance bill due, I just paid the $800.00+ rent, I have to get Nicole the $550.00 for child support and alimony and that's not enough (because I should be giving her $1100.00), and I just spent $1400.00 on place tickets, hotel, rental car, etc., to see my kids over Labor Day. My paycheck is gone before I can pay the car insurance. Now I'm broke! I've got nothing to spend on the kids when I get to NYS for Labor Day. Welcome to my world!

Remember: despair is a sin. Yes, I have no idea where the money is going to come from, but I have to believe that God is faithful and will keep His promises. Matthew 6:31-34 states:

So do not worry and say, 'What are we to eat?' or 'What are we to drink?' or 'What are we to wear?'
All these things the pagans seek. Your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.
But seek first the kingdom (of God) and his righteousness, 19 and all these things will be given you besides.
Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself. Sufficient for a day is its own evil.

So funny! No I am not at the point of despair, just disappointed. The problem is that I do know God provides and that God does love us unconditionally. I just feel like I should be doing something with all these desires surely God put them there. I do pray you have a wonderful Labor Day weekend with those beautiful children of yours. I want to see pictures when you get back, they must of grown so much over this year. I still have all the pictures you sent last time.

God bless you! And the scripture did make me feel better.
Lots of love!

It's okay sweetie! I know your frustration -- I still haven't heard from financial aide either. And if it doesn't have in the next few weeks, my daughter's registration can be blocked...

Hang in there,

Praying Sue,
That is what happened to me when I was accepted as a kid to a University. I had no money to attend and my financial aid was based on my dad's earnings. Turns out my dad had no intention on helping me go to College, so I had no money to go. I really gave up on alot of dreams back then. I pray it goes well for her. I told my son Anthony this week to make sure he applies by March so that he won't go through the same thing. Out of 5 children my last 2 are the only ones who have a desire to go to College. I pray they can.
