Praying for you all B'shem Yeshua!! I know some folks with family there too.
Sorry for your loss Sam. It's crazy times were living in and no doubt. My thoughts are definitely with all those affected in Puerto Rico and throughout the islands in all the storms. Crazy, crazy times. My best regards to you and your family during this difficult time too.
Sorry to hear that too, Sam. I think it is already a public health emergency. Prayer sent up.
Oh my God. I am so sorry Sam. Please accept my sincerest condolences. We have struggled here in Houston, but did not touch us like that. My prayers to you and your family.
I struggle to be non political here... This past week I had an Uncle die in Puerto Rico. He had to be buried the next day due to mortuary services being unavailable still. Most family, even some still on PR, couldnt attend the funeral.
My heart aches for the ppl of Puerto Rico and the continued neglect they struggle under. Pls prayer with me that a natural disaster does not become a public health emergency....
Awesome story of Evel Knievel accepting Christ!
So sorry to hear John, I also have chronic back pain with herniated disc. Will lift you up to the Lord for healing & his peace. God bless brother!!
Some of you know that I have had a health setback. About 13 weeks ago I hurt my back by lifting at a stupid angle. 2 flare-ups since then, the last one a bad one. I have been mostly bedfast for 10 days so far with much left leg nerve pain and weakness. ER visit, Dr visit, neurologist visit, x-rays, CT scan, and MRI.
Diagnosed yesterday with Tarlov's Cysts low on the front, bottom of my tail bone – flared up and causing nerve pain. Will start a nerve pain pill today. Prognosis fair at best. Cysts in bad spots for steroid injection or for surgery via the front below the underwear line. Will wait it out a while. Pain is fairly well controlled at rest, but bad if I walk or sit much over a minute. Linda is taking great care of me. BONUS???? I have lost 20 pounds since the new year including 11 in the last 2 weeks. It is good that I had some weight to spare.
Still able to enjoy some things and feel thankful. Good books, music with mp3 player, a few TV shows, visits from friend Ted, Bible, harmonica and cigar box guitar at my side.
Will welcome prayers and good wishes. I do not need anything else. I can not at this time respond to emails, etc. God bless!
Seems like a lot of ppl very anxious about national and international stiuation these days.
"Stay calm, trust God and play on!"
Blesdings, Wichita Sam
I hear what you're saying Alan...about feeling closer to God when you're doing something you're passionate about. I feel that way when I'm up in the mountains, in the ocean, or in the vastness of the desert. When I'm somewhere where there are no manmade things in my view, it's like God is right there sitting next to me. I sure don't get that feeling when I'm sitting in a big huge church. I'm so glad we don't need cell phone towers to talk to God, or for him to talk to us. :) I suspect if I had a shop, I'd feel the same way. :)
