As many of you know, I was able to secure a job at my beloved homeless shelter through a state-funded program. I am loving it there. I organize, answer phones, organize, sort donations, organize, help people, organize, lighten the manager’s load, organize, etc.
I love being able to dig my heels in and help out. I’m especially good at organizing (as you may have guessed!!!) and wheeling my lovely label maker! (Ok. It belongs to the shelter, but I have logged some serious time on that puppy!) I have organized the entire back room (my “office!”) as well as the donations, books, and clothes. My latest project is the movies. We have many, many great (and not so great, but who am I to judge?!!!) movies that I am organizing into adult and children sections as well as culling out the duplicates, triplicates, or quadruplicates, etc.
It’s a big job, since there are so many movies, but I’m up for the challenge! I was just showing one of our bosses around today so she could see all the progress I have made in the past month. She was impressed.
Unfortunately, I learned today that no matter how much I do or how fantastic my work is, they still don’t have the money to pay me to work there, even part time! I asked who I would have to contact, but they weren’t even sure. It seems hopeless, but that’s where all of you come in!
I need your prayers, everyone! I love this shelter and the work I do there means something, not just to me, but the manager, case manager, and residents. Please pray for me! I would love to be able to keep this job, but if not, I’m willing to let God work that out. He, after all, knows the big plan.
I will be extremely sad to let this go, but God knows best. Time to let Him take the wheel and if it’s over at the end of April, then I will never forget it and will come to visit!
So, start your prayer engines and GO!!!

I know with enough hope and faith things will get better and I hope you’re soon able to get paid for this work 🙏
Thank you! I found it interesting that the next novena (prayers for nine days) they the PrayMoreNovenas group I follow is to St. Joseph. He is the patron saint of workers!
