my purpose for existing
Everybody wants to know their purpose for being alive on this earth, I know mine. It's to help as many people as I can, in any way I can. Now, I'm not talking materially ( I am not Wealthy in that way), but in small ways , mainly by making them smile in their everyday lives, and taking away some of the tension in their daily living. So, one does not have to have material things to give to help another human being, which is what we all are, no matter who we are or what we look like. So, if everyone would help just one person, we'd have a much happier world. GO OUT AND DO IT!!!

Brought tears to my eyes
This brought tears to my eyes, although I have not been as down as this, but we are close to it. We lost our home as my hours were cut from work, my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer at this same time as the loss of our home, and my new job did not meet the bills, we were almost out on the street. Now my husband has passed, and we are as before, just praying that we can keep the rent being paid along with the bills. I am grateful to our Elohim for what we have and pray for these others. It is a heart situation.

In nearly all of the cases of receiving their checks, all of the "owners" of these organizations have stated, "This will go to help so many people." In one episode, the lady receiving the check said, "I've never had anyone believe in me in this way."
All of these episodes bring tears to my and wife's eyes. Only when we personally get involved with the giving, unconditionally, do we receive a benefit. Government programs do not create the same results or lives changed.
