I am trying so hard to hold onto my faith. It is silly that I question my faith when the 'chips are down' so to speak. Sometimes it just feels like there is nothing out there to help. Right now is one of those times. I keep praying, and trying to find work, but I am plagued by discontent at my life because there is a lack of work for me. I have the utmost faith that God provides. I just need to have a little more patience and hope. Sadly, time is running out for me and my household, but I refuse to believe that there is no hope. Ah well, the ramblings of a madwoman! Thats the neat thing about the Internet....I can ramble and not see those "OMG WHAT A NUT" looks on your faces! God bless and keep you all. I hope we will have the ability to become friends. I hope that I will still have a home to live in come Friday. I'm still holding out for some help or some work. If it doesn't come then I will say that God's will was for us to go a different route in our lives. And in that case I likely won't be posting anymore because I won't have a home to post from. Ah well, I have had some good years in this house. God's way is His way, and who am I to question that? God bless you all!

I spent some time today looking through many posts. It is sad that in the richest country in the nation, we are unable to provide consistent aid and housing to our own citizens. We are unable to provide health care for our underpriviledge and mid level citizens. I pray that everyone here finds thier needs fullfilled. God bless, and remember that when there is nothing else...there is always hope!

Comment: I am a single mom who lost...

Welfare is a great system if you don't own anything or have any income for the previous month. I just applied for thier emergency assistance program. They would help me if I didn't work or have any income, but help wouldn't come for 45 days. It is very frustrating when you seek help but can't get it because you work. The system is not set up to help people who only need temporary emergency assistance for a short term due to extenuating circumstances. It is only set up to help after those circumstances put you and your family on the street. I am able to get food stamps in the total of 100$ per month, which is a blessing. But actual assistance for rent or mortgages for working families is NOT something the system addresses. That is why we are blessed to have a place like this where people can help each other. Once I get past this terrible month, I want to help others too!

Dearest TLC, I empathize with your pain. My ex step father raped me for several years as a child. It took me until a few years ago to even talk about it, and I am almost 30 now. It hurts when the people you think care only hurt you. Just know that you are not alone, that there are people who love you and care about you and have been in the same situation. God bless you!

Self employed writer needs help with half the rent this month

    I am a freelance writer. You can find my webpage at Rita Writes Now
    This month I ran into some problems with a very large project that was cancelled. I was expecting this to pay my  rent. My rent is 600$, I have 300$. I am a mother of three and could really use the help. I would also love to get some work.

    I applied for financial state assistance but they will not help me for 45 days, and even then they probably will not help me because I work. It is very frustrating right now. I have always worked, but with 3 kids I tend to live week to week. If you are able to help me, any amount would be great. I am really worried because I have to pay my rent by Friday May 18th or I will be served with an eviction notice. I do not have any family resources to ask for help. Its just me and my kids.
