    Yes, praying for Michael and CK.

    Would you also pray for my husband who will have surgery tomorrow– for wisdom and accuracy for the surgeons, for compassion from the hospital staff, and for clear tissue biopsies. Thank you!

  4. Linnea says:

    Thank you so much, Dusty…

  5. Em says:

    reading and joining in prayer for all the concerns here – praying for the pray-ers, also

  6. Linnea says:

    Thank you all for your prayers– my husband’s surgery went well today! We want have biopsy results for 2-3 days, but the doctor is hopeful that he got it all out. Praise God!

  7. Em says:

    so good to read Linnea’s good report – prayer continues for all today

    I could use some prayer. I had an early miscarriage last year and haven’t been able to get pregnant again since. My husband is still sick. My husband’s sister and her husband have been and continue to be goofily unkind f not outright cruel to me and the last 12 months have just been kind of hard for me and my family.

  9. Em says:

    j2 – praying – so sorry to hear that you are your in-law’s target – Lord protect Your child

  10. Xenia says:

    Lord, have mercy on J2 and her family.

  11. j2theperson says:

    The nice thing is that Rob’s parents are both really nice and kind and I think they like me. It’s just his sister and her goofy, goofy husband that don’t like me, and it’s pretty easy to limit contact with them to a handful of times a year. But I still find it all very upsetting.

  12. Linnea says:

    J2–praying for the family situation….I’ve been there. Limiting contact is a good thing, but I sure understand how upsetting it can be when you do have contact. Praying for your husband’s health, too…

    Today I had our dog Daisy put to sleep. It was a gut wrenching decision but I got to be with her and hold her head in my hands as she quietly passed away. Our five year old grandson said his goodbyes Sunday. He told her not to forget how he shared his Cheerios with her when he was three. She was a loving and loyal pet for many years.

  14. Bob Sweat says:

    I’m soon to be unemployed, I would appreciate your prayers.

  16. Xenia says:

    The passing of a good dog.

    God bless you and your family.

  17. Xenia says:

    An elderly woman on our Meals on Wheels route was stabbed to death in her home (a beat up old house trailer) a few days ago. I thought her living situation was dangerous because her caretaker (a granddaughter, I believe) lived in a makeshift room in the back with a pit bull and she seemed neglected. I did report the situation but I don’t know it anything was done because it seems nothing changed. Apparently this granddaughter invited some unsavory friends (druggies) into the home in the middle of the night and for unknown reasons, one stabbed the poor defenseless woman. She probably weighed 80 pounds and was very frail.

    Those of you who are of a belief system that prays for mercy for the departed, please pray for Helen Morrow, a sweet woman who always greeted me with a cheery “God bless you!”

  18. Xenia says:

    To tell you the truth, I am pretty shook up about this.

  19. Anne says:

    Oh, Xenia -heartbreaking! May you find comfort and peace in your prayers for mercy on behalf of this dear departed one!!

  20. Xenia says:

    Thanks, Anne. That trailer was always creepy and I always thought there was something fishy going on but I am still shocked.

  21. Xenia says:

    I am aware of a couple of situations where it looks (to me) that younger family members have moved in on a feeble elderly relative, supposedly as caretakers but the situation looks opportunistic at times. I try to keep my eyes peeled.

  22. Bob, sorry to hear about your job situation. I thought I saw a post from you some months ago saying you were going to retire. Was I mistaken?

  23. Anne says:

    Grateful for your presence in these folk’s lives Xenia.

  24. Nonnie says:

    Oh, Xenia, I’m sorry about your friend. Yes, so grateful for your presence in their lives.

  25. Sarah says:

    Xenia…that is incredibly sad. Praying for peace for you tonight. Praying as well for the granddaughter and the others involved…for God’s presence to reveal their need.

    Praying for J2 and all the family dynamics…and for Rob’s health, also for J2′ heart with the miscarriage and the goofy in-law.

    Erunner…so sorry about Daisy. We have had to do that twice now, and it is so very difficult.

    Bob…praying for your work situation.

    Praying as well for Michael and CK.

    Praying for grace tonight for each. For God’s presence in our midst in a way that transforms our reality…invades it with hope and with mercy. Praying for those in financial need and for those in physical need…for those emotionally spent and those filled with joy. Those who carry great testimony and revive us with their words…praying for them to shout their praises!

    Praying for each as you come to mind tonight. Whew. It seems like months since I’ve been able to drop by!!!

  26. London says:

    Xenia- I am so sorry to hear about your friend. What a shame her grand daughter put her in harms way.

  27. London says:

    A few weeks ago I started a new project where the client is being steamrolled by another consultant. I can’t stand the guy and have to share space with him. It’s soul sucking…
    Anyway, when it really bad when I first started, i felt like I hit a wall emotionally and asked for prayer. What I do includes a lot of travel and sometimes being out in the road is lonely. I was missing my friends from my last project. …
    Anyway, the next week, I ended up running into a gal from a client a few years back on the airplane. It was great to see a friendly face! It turns out she’s on a project here and U.S. staying in the hotel right across the street from me! We got together tonight to catch up and eat dinner. A nice answer to prayer really.
    Just that I’d throw that out there and say thanks to those who were a lifeline and prayed that day.

  28. London says:

    Is not u.s.

  29. Bob Sweat says:

    Thank you Sarah and all. MLD, I’m not retiring, although that would be nice.

  30. Em says:

    praying for all as i read… God keep

  31. Nonnie says:

    Amen to Sarah’s prayers. Praying for each one of you. Thankful for our little community here.

  32. Anne says:

    Thankful as well for this community! Also thankful for the positive reports re: Nonnie’s grandson and Linnea’s spouse – yay!!! Glad you found encouragement in a chance encounter with a friendly face, London! Wishing you all the best Bob as you face changes in employment!

  33. Xenia says:

    A correction on my story: the woman who lived in the add-on room in the back of the trailer w/ the pit bull was apparently not a granddaughter but a caretaker. Her friend was the grandson who let the murderer in the house that night. The caretaker is the one who called the cops and may be completely innocent. Forgive me.

  34. j2theperson says:

    Either way, Xenia, what happened was truly awful and very sad. But you’re very thoughtful to correct the record.

  35. Linnea says:

    E-Runner….I’m so sorry about Daisy. We are facing the same decision about our yellow lab soon.

    Xenia…so sorry about the elderly lady on your Meals on Wheels route. I’ve seen young people moving in on elderly folks very often–and it’s often opportunistic. I’m so sorry this one ended so badly.

    Bob…praying for satisfying and well-paying work.

    My husband got the biopsy results back–they’re in the grey area, so we need to meet with an oncologist. Could you continue to pray? On a positive note, he’s recovered at record speed from surgery!

  36. Em says:

    prayer continues, Linnea … his recuperation is encouraging – will pray for him to keep his spirits up, always helps the healing process, eh?
    praying with for all of the above requests tonight … God keep
