Oh, Vickie, prayers for you also. It just seems that sometimes it all comes down in a short period of time. Hopefully, it will get better. Spring is just around the corner and a time for renewal.

Vickie, I am so sorry that you have been hit with such loss and bad news all at once. Sometimes life overwhelms us. You and your friends and family are included in my prayers. :love

Oh, Vickie, I'm sooo sorry. It's hard enough to deal with one thing at a time, but when they happen just bing, bing, bing, it gets completely overwhelming. You don't even have time to process one, until another comes along.

May God hold you all in His hands, comfort each of you, and heal those in need, whether it's physical, emotional, or another type of need...

I've reminded myself many times the past few weeks, that God has a plan. In situations like this, it's hard to remember that, and even harder to see how He can possibly use these things for good.

One of my favorite sayings is: God always is there. Always and all ways.

Many prayers for you, Vickie, and for those you love and care about. May you feel God's constant presence surrounding you, and holding you gently in His love... :hp

Vickie, you're great - as you have been suffering so much loss and sadness, you have continued to express your compassion and love for others in need. And you've never lost your sense of humor. You're my hero.

It's been a bad week.


Oh Vickie, I am so sorry! That is a lot to deal with. I will keep your friend Susan, your DIL's mother Kay, and the family and friends of Alma in my prayers. You will also be in my prayers. You are such a caring, beautiful person, that always reaches out to comfort others, and that can express herself to others in a way that few can. I pray for you to have the strength you need, and i know that you will be and are a huge comfort to them, just as you are always a huge comfort too all of us here on the forum. Many huggsss going out to you, and please do feel the love and comfort that is there for you right now and will be there as the days go by.

Terry I checked the video and the group. They are going to be in concert next week close to my town. I loved the song. We all need some uplifting words.

So....for tonight I have a story and a prayer. The story is supposed to be a joke so bear with me.

One day Jesus and Peter were riding in a boat. Jesus suddenly stood up and stepped out upon the water and wlked to the shore. Once there he turned and said to Peter, "Come Peter" and Jesus held out his hand to his friend. eter stepped from the boat and sank into the sea immediately. Jesus walked to him and lifted him out of the water and brought him to shore. Then Jesus turned and said "Peter - it helps if you know where the rocks are". (ha -ha, funny).

In truth that is what we all need to know - where the rocks are. I trust my God to show me where they are and hold me up until He knows I have a strong foothold. I trust that He will do that.

I am not a hero or even particularly strong. I have had a tough week and I have sorrowed over what my friends have endured and what anyone else I care about has had to deal with and even some of the injustices and pain I see in the paper. I have my moments believe me. But - thank God - I do know where the rocks are.

So tonight that is my prayer for each of you....May God bless you and keep you and show you where to find the rocks that uphold us as we struggle on.

Our youngest son just arrived in Iraq this morning for four months. We talked to him via Skype tonight. Please pray for his safety.

Our eight year old Cocker, Blondie, is recovering from surgery. Her sebaceous cyst decided to "pop" on Thursday morning, after we and the vet watched it closely for two years. The vet was able to remove it with only a local. Blondie has a leaky heart valve so surgery is very risky. She has a two inch incision on her back. She is doing well so far. Pray for her to leave the stitches alone when she gets the surgical wrap removed on Monday morning.

Becky, Many prayers coming your way for your sons safety. Please thank him for his service and sacrafice. I hope the 4 months go by quickly and he will be home safe and sound.

Also prayers for Blondie, that she leaves the stitches alone so she can recover and be back to her cute self. I am also glad they were able to do it with a local since she has a heart valve leakage. Big huggsss to her and to you. :hp :hp

Becky, prayers for your whole family as you all go through separation from your son and vice versa. Thank him for all he does for all of us in this country.

Prayers for Blondie that she heals quickly. It is so worrisome when our babies have other problems to deal with.

Vickie, thank you for the prayer. It sure applies to my life. Get that solid footing and move on slowly, but determinedly!!
