christmas time: To those of you who have my cell phone number, it has been turned off for a month or two

thriftymom started this conversation
To those of you who have my cell phone number, it has been turned off for a month or two now. I will be able to check my one to ones on here though. I would like to something nice for Christmas again. I have not found a job yet, so I will not be able to sponsor a family as I had hoped to do. Hopefully next year! But we are moving, I do have some items that I no longer need (adults, kids, etc.). I will post those eventually, but the cost of shipping may be an issue. I will figure it out as the time comes. God bless you all!

Dear thriftymom,
I'm glad that you continue to pray. It won't hurt to pray about the roof. I understand what it feels like to have fear, but I have also learned that God wants us to release fear and TOTALLY trust Him. (This is very hard because we are human and worrying is normal.) However, when we do trust God, He totally surprises us with his goodness.

In my lifetime, I have been afraid so many times. It has taken me "forever" to learn to totally trust God, but it makes all the difference in the world.

Tell God that you trust Him for all that you need, food, safe shelter, etc. And when you tell Him that you trust Him to meet all of your needs, mean it from the bottom of your heart. He hears the prayers that you send up for others and He will hear the prayers for you and what you need. However, His answer may not come in the way you expect. God's ways are unpredictable, but He is Love. And He will continue to show you His Love in very concrete ways.

I will join you in praying also.

Thank you sister. I pray a lot. Mostly for others. My grandpa is traveling to a specialist tomorrow to learn more about the growths in his abdomen and lungs. The outlook is grim. I feel like this holiday season is going to be the worst we have had. I continue to pray though. I thank the lord that my children receive a good education, I know they are fed when they are at school, so that makes me happy. I am grateful for the roof we do have, even if it does leak.
I am afraid for this winter though. We get too much snow, I hope the roof holds up until spring. Thank you for replying to me :)

Dear thriftymom,
You say that you are praying to find something. Begin to add gratitude to your prayers everyday. Find several things to thank God for each day before you ask for what you need. God likes to surprise us. If you do this several times a day, you will be surprised.

I feel the same way. I'm so sorry about the water. Hopefully, you can find someone to help fix it. Is it a pipe? Did your partner suffer brain damage? I thought I'd surprise someone secretly on here also.

:( It is so terrible!! I had such an amazing plan. I was going to help people this year. But now, I cannot even help us again! Something always comes up and I feel so hopeless. I cannot stand it anymore. My kids have to do without because of me and I hate it. We do not even have water right now! I got the bill paid but something happened with our upstairs plumbing. If it turns on it will flood. Cory was supposed to fix it but his accident has left him in such bad shape :( So freaking frustrated!!

You are not alone. I thought this year was going to be different and I did good all year until a few weeks ago, it's been one thing after another.

I am hoping to find something soon. We just found out that Cory will be out of work until probably the end of January. He has to have surgery on December 1st and go to a brain injury clinic shortly after! So I am praying to find something, otherwise I do not know how we will survive winter :(.
