Looking for someone with a big heart to donate a laptop to the men's ministry of my church, which I lead.  I am renting one right now in order to provide the congregation with announcements.  I also would love to have office installed, so that I can continue to use powerpoint for this task.  At the moment we are a small church, and this type of thing is not in the buget, so anything will be appreciated.  Thank you and God bless all of you.

If you have your own blog site, I suggest finding relevant products to your blog, or products you believe in and become an affiliate. You can promote the products you like, and make a couple of bucks in the process.

Here's an example:


Make sure to vote tomorrow... hope everyone is doing Ok.

Sharing a little love with you:


Christmas Season

Christmas Season brings the best in people out

Thoughts of sharing and caring come into view

Presents and food bless our homes

Charity in abundance blooms

Christmas Season brings Jesus back into view

Remembering God's gift of love for you

Christmas Season should be spread through out the year

If it were so there would be fewer tears

Thoughts of sharing and caring come into view

Making a better person of me and you

God Must have a Reason

God must have a reason
Body: I may not always understand the reason or purpose of what happens in my life but God knows.

Since I had the stroke a year ago in July, and do not function as well as I use to I have prayed for healing over and over. I am still unable to work the kind of work I have done before but I know that God in his wisdom has something that he needs me to understand and do for his will. There is always a reason for what happens in a persons life.

I have struggled with this and fallen into depression trying to learn how to function again because I know that there is a reason, I just have to figure it out. Even if I loose everything, which I am now doing because of no income, God has a purpose. I just have to keep faith in him and continue to pray for wisdom. After all Jesus died on the cross and he had no sin, for all of us.

When I had the stroke I was blessed to see Jesus in an awesome hallway and he looked straight into my eyes. He told me it was not time and that there was other things I had to do. I wanted so much to stay there in the peace and beauty of that place. But it was not my time and he sent me back.

So even in this struggle of mine I know there is a purpose for me to still be here. I have to trust in his will and wait for Gods timing in what needs to be done. So I ask all who read this to pray for me to have the strength to go on even in this loss of everything I have. Pray that our Father in heaven will give me the strength and the courage to keep going when I feel like giving up.

Hello there. I am a grandmother raising two granddaughters. I have had them for eight years now. One of my granddaughters is a special needs child. She was exposed to some very bad drugs in the utero. She is going through so much right now with medical and mental health issues. On top of all of that I had a stroke three years ago and became disabled. I lost everything that I had worked for my entire life. We are having financial difficulties all the time and because I can not work any longer the only thing I can think of to do is purchase a four plex complex to create extra income. I have experience in managing units of a larger quantity but today I am unable to manage larger units, it is to much for me. With a smaller unit I could get family members to help with repairs labor wise and I could manage the rest. My granddaughters have suffered because we are considered now to be very low income. There are times that we have run very low on food and struggle to pay the utilities. I need a solution to this delema and this is all I can figure out. If there is anyone who could assist us in providing this miracle it would be greatly appreciated. I pray daily for this miracle. Thank you.

I have prayed to God to help me get back into school, because so much in my life has changed dramatically. My mother died 4 mos ago this week, I lost my job in April, and my family is going thru some things right now. My elder daughter is a junior in HS and my younger daughter will graduate from 8th grade in June 2009. Money is very tight, and I've been looking for any job I could find, because my husband and I are praying his job avoids layoff. Any clerical or office job at all in downtown Chicago would be fine. I kept praying that I would be able to finish my degree at Robert Morris College, yet I have to settle my account w/ them. They actually called me outta the blue last week after almost 9 yrs and I believe that God is working on something huge for this; I just need to be able to get back in the door and stay there until I finish this time. Please pray that they can help me, because I have exhausted my loan limits and according to them, I only have about 8 classes to go before I'm done. I just need scholarships and grants to pay for school. I'm trying to find work so I could keep paying my bills and provide for my fam. My greatest birthday gift wish this month would be to go back to school w/o having to pay for it. Prayerfully, God answers my prayers and grants it. May God bless the vessel he chooses to use to do so. Amen.

If you need car seats, try googling it--I remember seeing somewhere that

car seats are free if you are unemployed because safety for our children comes first.

Much Success!

Hey Guys!  Hope everyone's Halloween went well for them!  I just wanted to drop by and say hey to everyone and to announce that for anyone who may be interested, The Business Promotion for my company ended on Halloween Evening but this month we have a whole new promotion.  This month, anyone who is looking for Wonderful, Affordable Dental or Health Care benefits, NOW is the time to jump in and get them!  This month, ALL of our packages are ONLY $20 your first month.  Normally, they range anywhere from $14.95 with a $20.00 first month registration fee to $59.95 with a $30.00 first month registration fee.  So regardless, you would normally pay anywhere from $24.95 to $89.95 your FIRST month.  But no, for ANY of those packages, this month you will ONLY pay $20.00 and then starting next month, you will pay the normal package price, anywhere from $14.95/month to $59.95/month just according to which package you chose.  For any newcomers who hasn't seen one of my postings, these benefits are accepted at top name companies like Walmart, Pearle Vision,  Walgreens, CVS and the list just goes on and on..If anyone would like to know more feel free to email me or go on and check out the site at:

And like I have stated before, I do my business to help other people.  I come to this page a few times a day normally and read everyones posts to look and see if anyone has a problem I might be able to help them with in one way or another..Helping people is something I live for..and my company is one of the ways I do just that and I have used these benefits unfortunately myself so I know how much they can really save.  I want others to be able to go to the dentist, get their prescription medicine, etc.  With this program, things become easier.  Yes you have a monthly fee but at the same time, you're going to be saving yourself a lot of money when it comes time to use your benefits card.  It's well worth it.  There are 4 different packages to chose from to best suit your needs, so please go to my website and look over them and see which one best suits you.  Feel free to email me at any time if you have any questions.

Well I guess that is all for now but I hope everyone has good day today. :)

Hi, I'm Gloria. I have a 19 year old attending college that has been diagnosed with an eating disorder. We are in the process of getting a medical withdrawal. Once that is accomplished, she will need to be admitted to a treatment facility. Since we have no insurance, the program has offered us a discounted rate based on my salary. However, I'm also a widow and don't have a big salary.

I'm supposed to have $50,000.00 to pay my portion of the treatment. There is no way I can come up with those funds in a week. Does anyone know of any emergency assistance? Are there grants or loans that have immediate access to the funds so that I can provide half the money upon entry to the program? ANY assistance will be appreciated. This is literally a life-or-death disorder and we need to get her into a facility ASAP.

Many thanks for your feedback and suggestions. Gloria

Nov.5th: the latest news: we missed the most recent deadline for enrollment in a facility. Christine is still in Europe, trying to finish her college semester. The Dean of Students has set up a daily 'weigh-in' and some faculty have volunteered to check on her daily. I'm continuing to look for finances and now must wait for Christine's return to Va. and a new opening in the treatment facility.

I'm having trouble finding respones to my post, so please contact me at . I still need to get funds together and be prepared for Christine's homecoming and her admittance to Remuda Ranch.  God bless you for your prayes and support.    Gloria

  I live in Rhode Island and my family and I are struggling like everyone else.  I have applied for foodstamps and so forth and my husband is waiting for unemployment from being layed off.  I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to get car seats for my 3yr old and my 8 month old.  They are both outgrowing the ones we have.  Unfortunately they are very expensive and I've been unable to find any help in getting them.  My 8 month old has also outgrown her bassinette and I need a crib for her.  Any info is helpful, thank you.  If I am able to get new car seats I am willing to donate the ones I have to any one who needs them.  They are in great condition, my daughters are just growing so fast.

Everyone is having a tuff time right now and all the information people give, mostly, is good however money is running short with all organizations and its truly amazing how little its takes to have in order to get no assistance. I am a disabled man living on SSDI with a part-time job. Its a little difficult to make ends meet at times but believe me it can be done. I know I have been doing it since 1990. You dont always get what you want but you can have what you need, food, a roof over your head and basic utilities. I dont mean to sound so rude here but come people alot of you have not even begun to see the bottom of the barrell yet your still sitting pretty on the rim....

The autumn season has arrived!

October- I like to reflect on the harvest that has been reaped from life's garden (Yes even the weeds in the garden, and the rough rows that had to be hoed!). 

Nov- I try to share with enthusiastic thankfullness from my heart all that has been good throughout the year (and come to think of it... even that which was not so great because it made me stronger and more appreciative of the many blessings!).  

Dec-I remember that it is not what I get, but what I give to others that defines whether the gift of living the past year has been worthy or wasted (I may not have money, but I have time, I have an ear/shoulder, I have faith, I have no excuse not to share what I have been so abundantly given!). 

Here is to my favorite time-the 3 best holidays- that nature brings to an end with such a flourish of colour and beauty- to remind me to look again at the past year and celebrate the wonders, the miracles, and the blessings that were a part of my very ordinary life. 

Happy Hopeful Autumn to All!  ksoulsak
