My mom's homeless

Tuesday, February 24, 2009

My mom came back from the Philippines today & she's homeless. This is _not_ a surprise; she knew even before her trip she'd have no apartment to return to. She didn't make prior arrangements & we don't know where she's going to stay. I looked up some hotel rooms for her but hope it won't come to that. She's resourceful & has close friends & some family in town. I hope she's able to set her pride aside & ask for help.

What's funny to me is that I feel less of an urge to emotionally eat over this; I've stuffed my face for smaller stressors. If I can make it through something like this without reaching for junk, then I can get through anything.

Prayers & positive wishes for a successful outcome appreciated. Thanks.

    GOSH! I JUST BLOGGED ABOUT HOW I AM TRYING TO GIVE IT ALL TO GOD AND STOP EATING OVER IT. WE HAVE NO CONTROL OVER THE SITUATION OR OUTCOMES. WE MUST TRUST GOD AND KNOW HE LOVES YOUR MOTHER MORE THAN YOU. HE WILL TAKE CARE OF HER AND SHOW HER THE WAY. WE MUST BELIEVE IN HIS LOVE AND MERCY! YOU LOOK GREAT AND HAVE OVERCOME A LOT OF OBSTACLES TO REACH YOUR GOALS SO FAR. DON'T LET YOUR DOUBT WEAKEN YOU. GOD IS FAITHFUL.BELIEVE! THIS IS THE REASON CHRISTIANS NEED OTHER CHRISTIANS. TO KEEP US ON THE RIGHT PATH. WE ALL KNOW THE TRUTH BUT WE NEED EACH OTHER TO REINFORCE IT. I WILL BE PRAYING FOR YOUR MOTHER.
