It seems a fellow Blogger from the Detroit Michigan area could use some help….:
I am so screwed friends. I’m so desperate for a job I applied yesterday to be a server in a ribs joint for 2 nights a week. The good news is it was a very short application. The bad news is before I left the woman who took it, asked for my birthday. She made it pretty clear that I’m too old for the job. That’s not even legal of course, but who’s going to sue over a two night job? I didn’t get the good bartending job either. I see the ad is out of the paper.
But that’s not the worst part. I got a letter from the bank. They cut off my credit card. I was depending on that to pay my bills this month. I won’t even be able to afford my medications now, much less buy food. Not that the food is so important. I don’t eat much anyway and I have enough in the cupboards to last a while. Besides I’m so upset I haven’t been to able to eat anyway. I can barely hold down the food. Not to mention the heat is making me sick. I haven’t turned on my AC because I was trying to keep the electric bill down. It averages from 85 to 90 in the apartment and it’s too hot to eat anything but pasta salad. It doesn’t help that I haven’t been able to sleep more than five hours for a week since I was already freaking about the job situation. I wake up in a panic. Sometimes I vomit. I lost five pounds this week.Via – The Impolitic: I am so really screwed
Now some people would want to know why I would even remotely even want to help someone from the other side of political fence. I will answer this:
- Politics is one thing and real life is another.
- I am in a similar situation myself. If it were not for my parents, I would be in the same spot.
- She’s a Lady; a liberal lady, but I digress…. and I am about a sucker for a damsel in distress.
….and for the most important reason:
Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. — (Romans 12:20-21 KJV)
Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. — (Matthew 5:43-45 KJV)
But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also. Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same. And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. — (Luke 6:27-35 KJV)
That is the reason. As much as I have issues with the modern day Church world; and it’s Americanized version of Christianity. I have not forgotten, nor have I abandoned my Christian Faith. Therefore I implore every Christian and Conservative who reads this blog, to open their hearts and their wallets to help this lady out.
Sometimes, there are things that are much more important, than political jousting. This, is one of those times.
