open to suggestions


Around here we have made the shift from hard times to desperate, and I'm not only at my wit's end, but the idea pool is pretty dry as well. When you're living penny to penny and the bank swoops in and seizes your funds, what's a body to do? (Yes, we are planning to change banks, but we didn't have the money to open a new account, you see, and so here we are...). When I logged into our account last night to see what sort of balance we had, numbers in red provoked a small meltdown. We are now a cash only family, a new experience, and I've gotta say, friends, that living on this kind of edge isn't pretty, nor is it fun. What's one more layer of stress?

The church is hosting a yard sale in a couple of weeks, and we will have an opportunity to sell off the few goods that haven't gone forth in yard sales past. That will help a little. Ken is trying to sell some of his tools and equipment, but in this economy no one appears to be buying. I'm scratching my head trying to think of some ways to generate revenue. Ideas are welcome, prayers coveted, and cash accepted...

Prayers forthcoming. Wish I could be of some help, but the situation is just as difficult here. I'm at my wits' end. If you get any good ideas from anyone, please let me know. Like you, prayers are needed here, and a buyer for the house is even more so.

Praying here too. No words I have will change things, but know you are cared for.
