I'm grateful for time with God; we are on our Sabbath and I didn't get as much time to help others the way I usually do before the start of Sabbath, so here I am trying to help. I'd encourage others today to pull close to their families; help them to understand that Christmas is about the gift we have in Jesus, not material things. Economics are tight for most people right now, but Christmas doesn't have to be a disappointment if we focus on what we have in each other and what we have in Jesus. I'm grateful to "just be" and appreciate what God had already given us. There is no material gift on earth that can hold a candle to that. Grateful for God's love...and for not giving up on us.
Hope you have a Merry Christmas
Hello and I am pretty sure I gave this to you so excuse me if it is a repeat.

Good luck and take care
So here is the web address. Best blessings to us all!
Hi there! I thought you might be interested in this $10k scholarship I found. You can sign up in minutes and it's totally free - but make sure you do it before the Dec. 15th drawing! http://vilnk.us/4ot3a0qlw1. I just checked the link and it will take you strait to the registration page.
If you register I'll be entered in their $250 Amazon gift card contest. Please have anyone you know sign up with that link too!
I guess I was kind of thinking out loud about what usually doesn't get stated when people are asking for help, as well as thinking about the way folks with a secure income accept spending money but not always getting what you spent it for. When a person slips from that secure income there is a learning process to endure about making that lesser income work and giving up fantastical investment notions for practicalities.
So I was speaking to the group and expressing a winning move, even when poor, that came out of what many might call a loosing position and sharing that feeling of taking a financial chance that actually worked for me and having no regrets. I'm lucky that the part of my life that I had to take that money from isn't a part of feeding my kids, just myself. many people have harder choices to make.
in response to drhoades... I am sorry to hear you are having a hard time. I know its hard to get a car or anything for that matter when your credit isnt so great. Have you tried the car lots that do their own financing? Also, there are a few places online that specialize in bad or no credit financing for autos, that way you dont have to keep going to different lots to get approved. I cant recommend one as i havent personally used any but would run it through the better business bureau first if you decide to try this route. Another option is to wait until you are ready to file taxes, many car lots will use your anticipated return as a down payment. Or you can go to local auctions and get a car for hardly anything, I have done this and recently bought a F250 truck valued at 20,000 for 8,000 and some dealers take payments as well.
in response to Paula22... Hi,
I have some information on grants on my blog and Im also including a link here for you. Not sure of your nationality but this page should cover most every ethnic category.
There are also many grants available depending on the field of study. If you are currently in school, check your schools financial aid dept or online to see what grants are being given locally. My daughter just applied to American River College near you, and they have scholarships given by local businesses she was eligible for as well as grants for course of study.
Best of luck
