Dire Needs and down to the WIRE again. … 4 days left in August …

bottle in the ocean

GOSH I really don’t like writing these posts. it’s getting harder and harder to do, but if I don’t ask, there is TRULY NO HOPE at all for us.. BOTTOM line WE ARE STILL STRUGGLING and WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP!

I truly don’t know what else to say because there are just so many ways to say it but we have come so far in this fundraiser and we can’t afford to quit now.

We have four days left in August. Our mortgage remains unpaid. AND TODAY, our power could be shut off for lack of $71.00.

In 4 1/2 months we have raised $ 2,195.00. It has helped and we are so thankful for those who have come forward ( some again and again) to support us.

I truly don’t want to sound ungrateful! Because I am VERY GRATEFUL .

BUT we still NEED to raise another $805.00, like YESTERDAY !

Please help us reach this goal!

Donations are still needed and greatly appreciated!

Thank you ALL so VERY MUCH!

Have a BLESSED day!

9 days left in August!


And we still have some VERY real NEEDS that NEED to be met.

The hope is to raise another $1000.00 in this fundraising effort , and preferably this month.

More specifically —-

Our mortgage payment is due on the 16th of each and every month in the amount of $431.87 ( but we have through the end of the month before it is considered late) August’s payment has not been paid yet and as always, keeping a roof over our head remains HIGH PRIORITY!

There are other needs as well, which our outlined here

IF you’d like to help with a specific need or would like to pay directly to a specific entity, please let me know.

I’d like to think I was realistic in my initial goal of $3000.00. What I underestimated, was the time it would take raise it. As life happens, the NEEDS shift and change IS the BEST way I can put this! And as deadlines close in, the stress levels GO UP. I ask forgiveness in advance for any angst showing in my posts. πŸ™‚

Anyway, we still really need your support and continued support.

Thank you ALL for the support we have received and continue to receive. … You all have been amazingly helpful in these four months.


PAY PAL is PREFERRED for a couple of reasons. 1) Funds are transferred in REAL TIME giving us immediate access. 2) My mortgage holders have an pay pal account and I can transfer directly to them from my pay pal account. 3) The donations are easier to keep track of with their statement system.

If you would like to donate via pay-pal, please click here.( you will be directed to our personal website where you will find a button for paypal. ) Click on it to donate any amount )

You can also help us at GoFundMe.com

You can also mail your donations. Our address can be found in the side bar.

I have some errands to run this morning but I wanted to get this posted BECAUSE it is SO very important!

Thanks AGAIN!

God Bless and have a wonderful day!

Cultivation in Progress …


Yesterday, I became totally convinced of God’s grace in my life although I did have more than just an inkling before . And it came in the form of a $7 donation. Yes, that’s right! And I am truly humbled by the gesture! Thank you.

No $7 isn’t the cure-all for my worldly financial woes, but better yet, PROOF that my God is there, working through others to provide for us as our daily struggle to get from one day to the next continues…

That $7, is exactly, almost to the penny, what we needed to get through yesterday. πŸ™‚

I am just amazed to the point of being speechless. That’s why I didn’t update yesterday. I spent ALOT of time basking in this realization that God is there, has always been there, and will always be there for me , regardless of my flaws, shortcoming and missteps in this life.

Today, I woke as I do most days, before dawn. Again penniless. My eyes popped open and I pivoted to sit straight up on the side of my bed before my feet even hit the floor and I found myself praising God for yesterday’s provision instead of crying to Him about another day OF needs not met .

I have been working on this. Practicing the art of praying for a while now.

I found myself thinking about how much easier the prayer thing was getting. How often I find myself throughout the day, saying ‘Thank you Lord.’ for all these little blessings, even those blessings that I don’t initially see as a blessing.

No, this is not some “POOF” DIVINE epiphany or intervention really. It’s all happened quite subtly. I believe that HE has been working on me for a long time. I also believe that I have had to work on myself. And finally, I believe that all that hard work and preparation is finally beginning to pay off and I don’t mean monetarily.

Mind you, He’s not finished with me and I have a long ways to go, but my excitement comes from getting to the point where I can feel the changes going on within myself.

‘Practice makes Perfect’ they say and some habits are VERY hard to break but as the old habits fall by the way side, new habits are forming. One is that I find myself more steadfast in my faith, regardless of what this life throws at me . Another, is that with each layer of pride I shed, the more open and grateful I am in receiving.

Thank YOU God for all of this.

And thank you all who have joined me in this process. Some of you, and you know who are, I truly believe are God-Sent to guide me. πŸ™‚

Have a Blessed Weekend Everyone !

Resorting to Cuteness! :)


Meet ‘Stanley’… πŸ™‚ He has come onboard to help with our fundraiser. He works really cheap… He works for peanuts.

Seriously though … We are still trying to reach the same goal of $3000.00, we have raised $ 1,765.00 in just over three months which has helped tremendously but I’ll let you do the math. This hasn’t been a GET RICH quick scheme. THE NEEDS are genuine!

The crisis IS over, BUT there are STILL many needs that we need help with.

A portion of July’s mortgage payment remains unpaid. And we really want to work on getting our house in order again. One is a major plumbing issue!

We have a little squirrelled away for these projects, but as time passes, and life happens it gets harder to hold on to.

Won’t you please help us continue the momentum that is going here?

Donations LARGE and SMALL are GREATLY appreciated!

Please don’t give up on us yet.

Thank you so much for supporting us in this effort.

God Bless and Happy Hump D ay!

Be the light …


You really never know what a difference you can make for someone . In our case, we woke in a Catch 22 Snafu this morning. Had most of the money to pay for insurance but could not access it. Other pesky little issues contributed to the problem.


Such a little problem BUT huge in our circumstances.

And then there was light! Thank you God!

This problem was resolved with a little quick thinking and the help of four individuals . An anonymous donor (((((((( ANON DONOR ))))), an over the road trucking team who were between drops,
(Nate and Anna) and the insurance rep who went out of the way for our cause.

So thankfully, we now have auto insurance and our driving privileges are secure!

Another issue to wipe off our list.

And it’s not yet noon.

Reprieves are GREAT and I really hate sounding so BLUNTLY needy but WE ARE and what we need are REAL solutions and we need them in a hurry!!!

At 5:00 pm on Friday, when the electric company had not arrived to turn off our electricity, obviously there was RELIEF on my end! But it doesn’t mean they are not coming! It simply means they didn’t get to us in their shortened post-Memorial Day schedule!

With that said, tomorrow is MONDAY and as of this moment, we’ve NOT gotten HELP with this YET!

If you’d like to make a REAL DIFFERENCE for us TODAY, this item can be paid DIRECTLY to Duke Energy ( formally Progress Energy) The minimum payment NOW WELL PAST DUE is $145.61. This amount, and only this amount will keep our power on.

And now, I am going to take another STEP out further into FAITH, and post my customer service information for the world to see because this is an emergency situation and my hope by doing so publicly, is to impress upon you, the gravity of our situation.

I have also updated detailed contact information on our DONATION page! ANOTHER BIG SCARY STEP!
