Howdy! Medusa J. Jones writing! Hope this finds y'all doin' well (not to mention, trying to keep cool; sure is powerful hot here in Texas ... and dry too!). I am doing good; glad I have an inside job ...
I am still working at the bookstore; am enjoying making my own money and bein' able to pay the bills. I'm also enjoying the fact that I can eat out with friends instead of digging out of Dumpters or garbage cans to get food. I have my own place, a bed to sleep in, and now have my job. It sure feels good to be contributing to society instead of hoping that people will help me when I put myself on the streets in the first darn place!
I am trying to make amends with my family. So far, not much from them, but I am hoping and praying that God will soften their hearts and see that I truly have changed and am doing good for myelf. I leave e-mails or call 'em, but so far, not even a peep from 'em. Oh, well, ain't gonna give up: hope springs eternal, as they say ...
Every day I wake up, I get into my prayer closet with my Bible and spend at least one half hour a day with God. He talks to me; He whispers in my spirit, and He tells me what to do in order to better my relationship with Him. He's told me some awesome, amazing things; I can't WAIT until the miracles start unfolding! I have a feeling that my recent homelessness will be a thing of the past for good; I don't plan on going back! Life is just startin' to get good; got too much going for me! :)
In addition, I pray to God each night when I retire to my bed. I thank Him for getting me through another day and I also pray for relief for Texas: we are in the midst of an extreme drought and we are in desperate need of rain or cooler temps. We haven't had a good decent rain since the middle of May; it's now August 4th: nearly three months! People and animals are dying and the trees, plants, water areas are too. It's really getting desperate here!
Other than working, trying to get a hold of my family, the drought, and my faith, there's not really much to report. I have a rather boring life. LOL I will go now; am at work now as I write this; break time is about over. I will write in here again soon; until then, this is Medusa Jones saying so long! May God bless y'all real good!
~Love, your Texas friend, Medusa. :)
