Courtney A
Horrible year

This may sound strange, beacause plenty of us have had a horrible year... but this girl's is a whole other world. She's only 18 and she's fighting battles most people won't see ever, let alone after they get older.

First, In the spring, she started hearing from a psycho ex boyfriend. He didn't leave her alone until it got so bad she used a restraining order on him. Immediately after that, an unusual circumstance caused her to leave work and look for another job. As soon as she quit her job, 3 family members died within 2 months. By the time that was over, she had a commitment with her church to fulfill, so she would be out of town for several weeks and couldn't find a job. She got back from her commitments and found a job at a daycare, only to have her purse stolen 3 weeks later. As soon as that was taken care of completely, her car was totaled in a horrible car accident. She had only had the car for 10 months... and she was so happy to have that car! Plus her back is really sore now... she can't play with her kids at work like she loves to do as much because it hurts her back. Not to mention that everyone at her job seems to look down upon her for her age- everyone else there is at least in their upper 30s.

I pray that Courtney put this year behind her and have a sense of hope and joy as 2002 nears. I know that it is hard to have an attitude of living day to day when you have been so beat up just yesterday. My prayer is that Courtney can do it!!!

Dear Friend,
Nobody really knows why God allows certain things to happen. Sometimes, I believe that God allows us to go through trials and tribulations to make us stronger people. I really believ e that God is about to use your friend in more ways than one. I have a very strong feeling that she will make a very positive impact on the lives of many people.
God I pray that you give Coutney the assurance that that you are preparing her for the good. I pray that she remains strong and continues to walk down the road of christanity. In Jesus name I pray.

Courtney, are you better now. I hope so. I once went through a series of unfortunate events after a thief stold my paycheck. I lost all my things, had to move out of my apartment, and during this also lost my job. I then was almost assaulted by a construction worker next door who had been harrassing me and accusing me of being too stuck up to him. My whole life has gone unfortunately like this with jobs, friends, and psychos. I finally called crime victim assistance and still have yet to find out how to prevent such things. I did notice my life fall apart before my eyes after the the thief stole my paycheck. I hope your life has become better. If not, please try crime victim assistance since you did have a crazy boyfriend. You may need couseling in how to deal with such a crazy person.

I will pray for this girl. She has had it hard. I had a hard year last year as well, 3 deaths (one was my husband's best friend), sickness, drama, confusion, and just wondering "why". You have to just put this behind you. You can't change the past. We love you very much and know what you are going through. We pray for your healing and to allow God to just take over. Just "Give it to God". He will take care of all your dramas for you. God Bless!
