I personally know of a family, husband, wife and two babies under three who live in a motel. They pay by the day and although the husband works 7 days a week, they are unable to collect enough to pay past the daily rent. The daily rent is $57 and if you add that up it comes to over $1700, in rent per month. He works all the time and can support this but cannot save enough for rent plus deposit in order to live in an apartment. Any ideas? They need an investment by someone into them. I've met them and they neither smoke or drink or do drugs and are trying to get out of the motel cycle. Any ideas would be welcome. I live on the edge myself and still do what I can. Thank you... P.S. they are losing their room as of xmas eve day. They live in Southern California.

 in response to FriskyFreddy...   You claim to be open minded and that the whole of Europe is.That is strange.

If you can believe in the power of prayer for the person then then why not for others. With that open mind you must be able to see that:
1. That if that person can believe and has faith strong enough to heal themselves then why not for others?

2. It is comforting to know that some one else cares enough to speak to their most high on your behalf, is that not a healing aspect therefore they are in effect healing or helping? If not by being a comfort alone? Having any part no matter how minute of that person's well being does not seem to be useless.

What is useless is someone who claims to be one thing and is another.Usually a person with an open mind "tries to see all sides" that's what open mind means. Funny, for a person that has a closed mind, I am explaining to a person who has an open mind What an open mind is. Is it not. Oh, wise one. Which by the way is another aspect of having an open mind.

Open mouth , insert foot comes to mind.

Whether it is useless or not I will pray for all who needs and wants it. Jesus did and it is still working today. Talk about power, talk about an open mind or closed one, however you want to look at it.

May you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy Properous New Year, and if that offends you thenI'll say have a Merry Merry and a Happy Happy , and not tough shite. May God Bless

Merry Christmas as they open their doors to anyone in need, lonely, people who have no family,and homeless that day for meal and fun plus the comedians that perform there get a free meal that day.. Pretty cool place. I haven't been there but saw things from it on TV.

 in response to susie's son...   Don't waste your prays on me. Send them to the people who ask for it. It will benefit them.

And now STOP!! Sit back. Inhale deep and exhale slow. Let go of all your negative energy towards me. I am not joking here. I am dead serious. You all sound very hostile. Maybe it helps when i tell you i have many friends who practice very different religions. They all became very loyal trustworthy friends once they understood my statement. I am NOT a preacher. Every one of them is still practicing their religion the way the did before they met me. This is my way of telling you that i don't put my energy in religion. I fill the void in my heart with the goodness en warmth of people.

I seems to me that no one really understands what i am writing. I showed my respect to you and your god. I even apologized for using the word "s**t". Still you try to convince me of something unreal. What do you want me to say?

 in response to sheshe030...   I am sure that reading my reply will make it all much clearer. Don't hesitate to discuss this matter if it didn't. The fact that i am rude is relative. I can only apologizes for using the word "shit". I keep in mind that next time i will **** the word "****". Hey! Seen that? I already started being friendly. I blanked the word "****". Oops! haha, I did it again. (i hope you don't mind a joke now and then)

 in response to FriskyFreddy...   Prayer helps those who believe and it helps those that the believers are praying for. The person who denies God's existence is missing out on a lot. God is everywhere, all a person has to do is look at creation and they will see God.
It saddens my heart to hear that anyone thinks prayer is useless, and I feel that there must be a great void in the heart of any individual that feels this way. Now with that being said, I will end this message with one final statement. I WILL BE PRAYING FOR YOU

 in response to susie's son...   You have no idea how thankful i am that you made this comment. I really am. You gave me the opportunity to explain myself. You might be surprised if i tell you i respect every religion and that praying really does help. Yup, it does. Yes, it is still me writing this and no i didn't change my mind. Praying helps for people who believe. There is no need for discussion if there is a god or not. You are free to think there is. There is absolutely nothing wrong in finding strength trough prays. As you write:"everyone deals with those needs in their own way". I can't say it better. That's exactly what it is. Pray for yourself and the stronger your believe the more effect it will have......on yourself. Yet, praying in an attempt to help other is useless.

 in response to nini3...   I'm always glad to help and I do get pleasure from being of help. I think that my outlook comes from being, in my mind, from the bottom of the barrel. It's like they say,"all you got is looking up" don't know who came up with that but they were right.I do thank you for the very fine and kind words though.

Even the snail thinks(purely in my imagination)He's going as fast as he can in fact he might be going super fast. To look from the other side.

Yes, it's best to get your rest, supposedly, that's the time that your body repairs it's self the most, I think that's the only time it gets to.

Well, we have been conditioned to get presents for Christmas. I know you were expecting me to say,"to give and receive." but that is only particially right. We were taught to give..... AND receive. To expect something in return when we are kind and giving. We weren't taught to give, period.
My point is that we expect to give presents and to receive presents, and that is to say, receive presents guilt free.

If you can do some crats and give them ont they will mean much more(unless it's something that person really really wanted and couldn't afford).
One Christmas I was feeling that way, didn't have anythingbut the landlord was remoldeling soe of his places and he had scraps of wood and molding laying around. I asked if I could have it and he let me. I took it, cut it in Several pieces, glued the sides toether put them on a square block of wood, heated a rod to burn their iniatials into them and gave them as candle holders.

Here's a 'trick' that may help with the headaches, neckaches, etc. Take a towel, hand towel or a worn thin toel, put it around your neck, hold both corners or far ends in your hands, pull upat a 90 degree angle to your chin and roll your neck around i it's out of plces or needs poped, this will do the trick.

You might have to go down to the office and bug them both the state and the hospital.If you have to be a little rude, or I guess persistant.

You , yourself, share your wisdom and expeience which helps those you share with. Your warmth, compassion and understanding comes through your postings and I look forward to reading more of them.

May you have a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year, may God Bless

 in response to sheshe030...   Thank you. I know that many here rely on prayer. Prayer is what keeps our hearts close to God, and it unites us with a powerful bond that enables us to share the struggles that we encounter every day. We don't pray because God needs us, it's because we need Him, and that revelation can make all the difference in life. Thanks for being one of my prayer buddies.
