blessings and stressors
Friday, May 18, 2012
Wow, it's been a while since I was on here....so much has been happening; including weight gain, turning 50, etc.
Okay, so my roommate, Susan, was fired two months ago for something she didn't do. They made sure that she couldn't receive unemployment. Susie is not the type of person to pursue legal action. She just wants another job. She's been to dozens of interviews with no luck.
However, she has been spending this time fasting, praying, and devoting herself to reading the Word and working on some issues in her life. She's received victory in so many areas; praising our God and King!
We have been living on my meager salary. Even though we're living pay check to pay check and just barely making it, we ARE making it by the grace of a Mighty God.
However, Susie got pulled over on her way home from an interview the other day. Apparently she sped up too soon when leaving a school zone. Add to that the fact that her inspection sticker is out of date due to the need to fix her steering, and you get a $300.00. ticket. She has NO money whatsoever. I've been supporting her. The only way I can pay this ticket is to NOT pay my rent; which is not happening.
She was told that if she doesn't pay this ticket by June 1st, she'll go to jail. I can't let that happen. Susie and I have known each other most of our lives and she's the closest thing I've got to a sister.
So, what I need are suggestions of how to get money quickly for this purpose. She went to one financial aid place and they needed MY pay stubs; which I don't have since I have automatic deposit. She's going to try calling 211 tomorrow.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Our God is a good God who provides beyond what we can imagine. An outpouring of love from friends and church members has provided the funds needed. Thank you for your prayers and support.
