Foreclosure angels

posted by Susan Gregg

Aloha everyone,

My theory about life is, “Life is, and then we tell ourselves a story so make it a good story.” I like the story of pay it forward. There is no doubt many people are losing their homes due to foreclosures. In the depression, neighbors would have rent parties to help one another pay the rent.

The Foreclosure Angel Foundation was born when Marilyn Mock saw a need in November 2008 to help her neighbor who was about to lose her home. With nowhere else to turn but the streets, their home went up on the auction block. Marilyn bought the home at the auction price and sold it right back to the owners at the now lower cost. Marilyn had a keen sense that, “It could be me in that situation.”

There is a ground swell movement called pay it forward growing in the hearts and souls of people all over this planet. I think of it as angels in action. “Pay It Forward” is a book written by Catherine Ryan Hyde that has given birth to the idea that you pass the goodness in your life on. This is a video of one woman paying it forward for a woman who had lost her home.

In the book, a young boy named Trevor had the idea of changing the world with the simple act of helping others and then asking them to help three others in return. Imagine a world in which we all acted from our heart and helped one another. We could all be one another’s angels.

When I was incredibly depressed, one of my spiritual mentors told me to reach out and help others, to commit random acts of kindness, and to focus on being grateful for every moment of my life. It was before the book or the movie “Pay it Forward.” Doing those simple acts changed my whole world.

Reach out in love and kindness, help others without expecting anything in return, and see what happens in your life.

With love and aloha,

We all have angels on our shoulders, imagine a world in which we all followed their guidance!

    Wow this has just come as we are now facing foreclosure on our beach house we built 10 years ago. Due to housing prices falling, my husband on a walker for over 9 months due to MRSA after a hip replacement 2 years ago. We have helped so many people in the past and now we face this on our own.

    Helping without expecting anything in return is a right mind and spirit.I just love to think that out of my poverty,i can still lend a helping hand in any way that i can.

    Aloha Lynda,
    It helps me to remember I am never alone although it sure can feel that way at times. Who knows maybe someone will help you if you just let those around you know what you are going through and allow their love and support to fill you. When we ask without expectations magic happens.
    I will put you in my prayers.
    With love and a knowing that anything is possible,

    Dearest Angels,
    I am in desperate need of help. I have 7 days to have another home. My husband lost his job after 18 yrs. in May. He can find no work. I used to be a cosmetologist and owned my own salon, in Dec. 1999 I started getting deathly sick, ended up loosing every dime I put into my Salon. I was devistated about that but more that I had been dignanosed with the worst type of Systemic LUPUS and Rhumatoid Arthris I get no help from gov, we have no ins. Please we are loosing our home. I have been in tensive care in the hosptitol 2 times just since my husband was laid off. I have lost my mother in May 17, and I lost my father last Juse 8 1008. We have no where to go. No one to help us. I am to sick to be homeless, I humbly beg you to help us. In Jesus name. Your Friends in christ.

    I have about one more month of work before my store will close forever. This decision came out of nowhere and I was led to believe the opposite from the company. I transferred here with the company and many things went wrong and now this. I am going to lose my home and I need one I can afford on my unemployment until I can get back on my feet again. I fully support my daughter and her fiance’ who both have life threatening health problems as we continue to try to get his disability. Many of the homes here in Idaho are around and under $100,000. We don’t need anything fancy, just somewhere to call home and I can make payments up to 600 per month. Is there anyone who will help us? Thank you and God bless.

    You are always in my prayers.
    With faith and hope,

    It is good that there are still many people with good intentions. Our world will be less difficult to live in if almost all of the people are helpful and not being selfish.

What do angels know that we don't know?
The main thing angels know that we tend to forget is that this is a safe universe and that we are loved, unconditionally. They know that only the love is real and that everything else is an illusion or delusion created by our filter system: our beliefs, agreements and assumptions. Love, happin

Refelctions on the Vietnam War
I was surprised when I was reminded that it was the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War. I was in high school when the war started and much of my early life was lived against the back drop of vivid images of the war every night on the evening news. When I was in college the massacre at Kent State
