Good morning all! :)

Parm, good night-good morning. ;) I hope you are doing well my brother.

Iris and Nim, when I am stressed-depressed-down-hurt and what have you after praying to God I turn on this new video game Lord of the Rings Online, and then I go and find some ugly orcs and let my Rohirric Captain smash them into the ground. :P :twisted: [/attempt at humor]

Seriously though, I am praying for you two, and may God bless you both through the struggles that you are in now. :hug:

God bless you all,
Dan

edit: In 20 posts we have to move on to verse 9. Who wants to start it?

Hello everyone, erm wow I'm not sure what to post so much has happened since I was last on and I have read all your posts and prayed for all of you. May we all know that God is enough in all our situations. :grouphug:

Parm: I was so worried when I read the post about you being in hospital and I am so relieved to hear that it is not as serious as was first thought. Praise God. And thank you for all your poetry I know it blesses me and many more so much.

Iris and Nim you are both in my prayers and I hope that even in the worst and most unsettling circumstances that you would know the peace of the Father in your heart. :hug:

Dan, Gwen and clan: God be with you and may He keep his blessings coming. :)

Gwenneth: it is good to see you again. :)

Keve: Prayers for you I know the situation you are in very well from experience. May Giod keep you and guide you. :)

I feel that wound in my heart opened new,
Every moment it widens more and more,
I moan and ache and scream until blue,
And fall to my knees in spirit so poor,

I call to my God in groans more than words,
Feeling alone I sink into a pit and lie still,
I look to the sky no comfort there, no birds,
A sinking in my stomach that be cured by no pill,

I am a wretch I cannot feel His beautiful light,
Longing for my God with my eyes red from tears,
I see in the pit a ladder let down it shines so bright,
My master comes down and His eyes drive out fears,

I look to Him and He comes sitting next to me,
His light fills my pit of despair bringing untold joy,
I keep my eyes firmly on my lover and finally see,
His Love is bigger than any pain and vaster than any sea.

God be with you all. :cry:

Unless anyone has objections, I can start the new thread. :) Just yell when we get down to the last few posts, ok? (cause I'll forget where we're at!)

Thanks to all of you for your prayers. Felling better. Not 100%, maybe about 80%, but doing ok. :)

Love, prayers, and hugs,

Sometimes I wish he'd give me at least a brief outline...:) Unlike most people, I don't always like surprises.

Update on my dad: He had two blockages. One was 80-85 % blocked and they put a stint in. The other was 90% blocked, but was so small they couldn't get the balloon in so they will treat it with medicine. They are monitoring him right now. Please continue to remember him in your prayers.

Praying for you all as always. :)

Love you

Hello.

Back again. I'm in the study break/exam period. One exam down, three to go. And I'm so tired, and have no idea how I'll manage to get through tomorrow's one.

Love for all,

Healing takes time, and it is a painful process. But it does beat the alternative. Don't you dare let yourself get bitter and swear off love. You will enjoy that even less...and you don't have the face for tentacles. Trust is the hardest lesson to learn, because it only counts if we have trust when things don't go well *at all*.

Prayers for your father, Gwen.

My grandmother continues to hang in there, but her condition is not improving. She has 6 children (all in their 50s), so please keep them in your prayers - this is tougher on them than it is on me.

Surrendered

All bare are we, 'neath surgeon's knives,
a fight to save our too-brief lives,
our box of bones, our lump of clay,
which God delights in anyway.
For we are more than colored skin,
but vessels where God dwells within,
thus when these treasures knot with pain,
God aches and heaven weeps as rain.
We are surrendered, lying still,
that doctors, with their practiced skill,
lay open places that must be
repaired by human surgery.
Indeed! God's blade, that twin-edged thing,
that cannot help sometimes, but sting,
exposes all that needs to go,
and we, surrendered, come to know
that this is how God operates,
removing us from sinful states,
then using ways, like surgery,
brings healing, but not easily.
We shall uphold these surgeoned saints,
in honest prayers, and all complaints,
our anguished pleas, our wordless cries,
that thunder in our stormy skies.
Yet, when our sobs at last grow still,
we rest, surrendered, to His will.

Grateful for His
Bright blessings,
Parm :)
The autumn I know and love in Calgary.

Mith ~ I didn't see your post before I posted. I wont swear off love. I promise. ;) Right now it's more a friend issue. :roll: However, I wont be swearing off friendship either. :lol: Thank you for the advice. :hug:

Iris ~ :thppt: :lol:

Parm ~ :hug:

I had a very stressfull night at work... ran out of 1 dollar bills. Tonight I was $12.10 OVER what I should have had. $10 of that was accounted for because we started with $10 over the start cash normal amount. The other 2.10 is a mystery to me. :roll: Oh well... I got it all down in the books and everything... then I was driving home and realised I forgot to clockout. :roll: Don't know HOW I'm going to fix that one... Except write it in, and I did call my mom right before I left the store because ever since the Kansas thing she and Dad have been really protective when I work nights. So the exact time is in my phone... I just hope they accept a written in time... oh well.
It was probably the craziest night of my working life! (thus far. :lol: )

Much love

Nim, when I worked at the tax office I forgot to clock out a couple of times...it was something the manager could easily fix. I used to work at a Subway too and I could NEVER get the cash drawer right...I hated that job anyhow. :hug:

Well, in keeping with Gwen's post and Parm's Poem (:hug:) I have a prayer request. My best friend's gram had a catherization yesterday and they found several blockages. I haven't heard yet what they're going to do. She's 86.

Also, have you all heard that Ruth Graham, Billy Graham's wife, has slipped into a coma? We should remember the family at this time. :( (actually, it should be a :), but knowing how hard it is to lose someome you love, it's a :( )

EDIT: I just got an email from S. Her gram did not have the whole catherization, they were only able to put the dye in and found several blockages, the only option is surgery and she has refused that. The doctor said she won't make it to her 90s. :(

I have a funny regarding the Ruth Graham story. When I came in to work this morning I mentioned to the one copy editor (who is a Christian) that Mrs. Graham was in a coma. This started a discussion on what her ailments were.

A little while ago the other copy editor was reading a story on the computer and he said, "Oh, here's a list of her ailments: fluid on the brain, Parkinson's Disease, Prostate Cancer..." and I stopped him and said, "I don't think Ruth has Prostate Cancer!" and he said, "Well, this article says she does!" I read over his shoulder and the article said, "The Rev. Billy Graham....whose ailments include..."

:lmbo:

I thought, is there something about Ruth we don't know?
