This is a request for help. On November 13th, the job I had ended. I applied for unemployment, but my employer contested and i lost. Over the course of the last 6 weeks, friends and family have helped as much as they can, but i have $600 of bills coming due next week (plus the need for food and gas) that I have no money to pay. I start a new job tomorrow, but will not get paid for that until the end of the month and that will need to pay February's rent and bills. This is an ackward thing for me to do, but if any of you are able and willing to help, I would be grateful. Thank you.

Well, rent is due again this week... $565 + the fees = $615.
I have food to get through until Tuesday or so.

Still tired and sore, but less so, so improvement is good.

Continuing to look for a car and a couch. :)

Funny, for a writer, I sometimes have trouble knowing what to say here...Thank you all so much. Thank you.

A wonderful friend bought me lunch today. (Thank you!) So I have food through tomorrow.

Have been a little sore and tired this week. Not sure why, but I know it will pass.

The plot of my mystery is progressing. Reading tons in the genre for inspiration/motivation.

Still looking for a car and a couch. :)

Again, thank you all so much! You are truly teaching me what grace and mercy and love are about.

I am so grateful all of March's bills and rent have been covered. Thank you!
I have food through Tuesday, then will need again.

The tumor is still there, but still about the size of a raisin. It only twinges occasionally. I am grateful that, although it is not gone, it is not getting worse. Still working on that. My knee is back to normal. Yay! My back is a little grumpy, though. Partly the couch, I think, and partly the unusual weather, perhaps.

Work on both books is slow, but I am making progress. It is a much slower process than I'd like, but I haven't yet figured out how to speed it up.

Still looking for solutions to the car dilema.

Continued prayers and thoughts on all the above are greatly appreciated.

Thank you all so much!

I still need to get food. I have eaten today and have tomorrow covered.
I will have the money in hand to cover March's bills on Monday. THANK YOU!

Otherwise, no change except that I am mentally doing better. God is patient. :)

Work on both books is continuing. The fiction in the first in what I hope will be a mystery series. The second is about observations on God and religion. I know, yikes! Right? But I believe sharing what I have learned and see can help others. Prayers on these projects greatly appreciated.

Again, thank you, thank you, all of you, for your prayers, your encouragement, your help. You really have no idea how much you are impacting me. Love to you all.
