So thankful for God's mercy,
for the intercession and protection of the Saints.
Today I was at a beautiful baptism of a lovey baby boy.
I went to my good friend's house to look into
the money issue from the letter
of unexpected money owed
that I received this week.
We discovered that the letter was not wrong.
I suddenly owe a large amount
(esp. right now for me)
so much that with the current regular bills I have
I do not have any savings left
outside of the pension that was paid by my employer
that is now housed at my bank.
(I will see about payment options
for the unexpected bill,
I am responsible
and will communicate appropriately.)
My friend who is also in some grave difficulties
came last night and we prayed
services to the Mother of God and to St. Nicholas.
God is powerful in the intercession of His Saints.
I suddenly find myself,
a professional librarian,
who has great work experience and
formerly a decent salary,
in a position where
due to some other factors,
including lack of health care in the States
and no jobs in Michigan,
mean that I may need to stay here
and look into everything that can help me:
looking for any job I can do
looking into social assistance
figuring out where food banks are
so I have one less bill to worry about.
All At Once.
I do have a few friends who may be able to help me with
but the situation is still serious.
