Progress...


Matthew 5:45
For he makes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust..

Well, good news on two fronts.

They asked me back to work at my political campaigning job. Cool, I am back in the money! I was about to go take a position at a telemarketing firm that advertised immediate openings until the MGM hires me.

Earlier this morning the MGM Grand called me and told me to come in for a drug test. That's great! I just returned from having my hair snipped for the test. They can go back 90 days for drug usage.

This is hopeful. I need to clear the background investigation. There is potential trouble there. Gentle reader, I will let you in on some juicy stuff on the Lonely Man. About 5 years ago I got arrested and was jailed for nine days. This guy, a former employer of mine who got addicted to crack cocaine, stole my identity after he got busted for credit card forgery and failed to appear before drug court. He had my name, social security number and description, I presume he got that from my employment records- scary, huh? Well, it happened to me.

I have been almost arrested again a couple of times since then because he currently has a warrant for his arrest from the Probation department. That will show up on the criminal check these casinos do. I explained all that on my job application. I hope it doesn't send up a red flag that will disqualify me for the job. We're talking about a bright future here, folks.

So, there's more need for prayers for the Lonely Man. Once again, if any of you have a pressing need then, by all means, let me know, I will gladly lift you up in prayer, too. Now I have made this offer plenty of times but have had no takers. So... take me up on my offer! You hear? Email me if you don't feel comfortable leaving your prayer request in the combox.

I will pray for you that those problems will not hinder your job there...but if they do realize God probably has a different path.

Happy to pray for you, and more than happy to be prayed for by yourself :-)

You remain in my prayers, certainly. Will you please pray for me as I prepare for my first experience in providing the Catechesis (versus scripture reflection) in RCIA? My talk is on the Social Teachings of the Church in 2 weeks and I still hardly know where to begin. I need the help of LOTS of prayers!
