Formerly homeless, Medusa Jones continues to do well for herself and she is grateful for how much her life has turned around.

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.  :)
