sometimes life comes at you fast

it's so hard sometimes when people tell about a tough situation in their life that you really can't do anything about. let me explain.

so a few weeks ago i took my youth group to a workcamp in lancaster. while we were there i developed a good relationship with the lady whose house we were working on. she's been out of work for almost a year and she suffers from some illnesses that really drain her of her energy. so since i've been home i've talked to her on the phone a few times and prayed with her over her lack of a job and her health.

so today she emails me and tells me that she just got notified by her mortgage company that she's 30 days behind on her payment and the might make her leave her house. she's obviously very upset because her house finally feels like a home after all the work we did to it. the problem is... i don't know what to do. i don't even know what to tell her.

i just hate feeling like i'm responsible to do something but at the same time knowing i'm not. i take on too much and i know this isn't my burden to carry but i just don't know what to do. she has no family or friends for that matter to help her out. i don't know... this just really sucks.
