Can you post a thread asking for prayers. that couple can’t get a break. and the hospitals are always 500000 miles away from home and they still SUCK. i get the feelings it’s just he and his wife because he wanted me to mention this on FR even though i was going to do it anyway. he sounded afraid, which is unusual for him."

    Hello Freepers Can you please do me a favor and say a prayer for me? For the last ten years or so, I was blessed with a stable job albeit not very well paid. Almost two years ago, I had much better opportunity with a startup which increased my pay substantially. I somewhat got a late start in life. With this new job, I was able to consider starting a family. I have someone who wants to have a baby with me but this may have to be put on hold. You know, startups may pay more but it can...
  • Review: ‘The Screwtape Letters’ at Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Lansburgh Theatre

    DC Metro ^ | 30 January 2019 | By John Stoltenberg
    When the Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy for the Devil” comes on the pre-show soundtrack, it’s a tipoff that C.S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters is going to be a diabolically delightful evening of theater and infernally amusing. The script is deftly adapted for the stage by Max McLean (who also directs) and Jeffrey Fiske from Lewis’ popular epistolary novel wherein the moral universe is turned upside down: God is “The Enemy” and the Devil-in-chief is “Our Father.” The Screwtape Letters is obliquely a story about the vicissitudes of faith and the joke is that it’s set in Hell, where Screwtape is a...

  • ‘Gosnell’ film convinces ‘abortion agnostic’ to recognize ‘murder’ of the pre-born

    KANSAS CITY, Missouri, November 1, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer has made a deep impression with audiences nationwide, and now the true story of America’s most infamous abortionist has inspired yet another testimonial about the film converting a viewer on abortion.... On Wednesday, The Federalist published an op-ed in which Missouri attorney Adam Mill explains how Gosnell impacted him, someone who “avoided the abortion issue because I lacked the moral courage to really think about it and form my own opinion.”
  • I Was Wrong About Trump

    07/10/2018 6:11:36 AM PDT · by Saveourcountry · 114 replies
    I was wrong about Trump. I was solidly against him when he was running - knowing that he spent most of his life as a Democrat. I was at the point that I would have almost rather have had a Democrat in office that claimed to be a Democrat than another RINO claiming to be a Republican while ruining the country (not enough to vote for Hillary, or not vote btw). Trump has happily proved me wrong and I am now solidly behind him and happier than I have been, ever, with my president. Hopefully this SC pick proves to...

    My Pastor's wife's niece and nephew were killed today by a out of control car, which ran up a curb and hit them in a yard. I cannot imagine) greater grief than losing two kids in one incident. I am generally pretty strong in the Spirit, but I am having a definite strain here...bad things happening to good people. PRAYERS PLEASE for those two poor kids, the family, my pastor and his wife, and myself. Thanks.

    Wednesday was my Mom’s 92 birthday. The past two weeks she has been very sick. I took her to the hospital on the 5th, as she didn’t feel well. They said that there was really nothing they could do for her. She was transferred to the Hospice House on Wednesday. Things would get better than worse. I sat with her all night for her birthday. At 7am Thursday she took her last breath. I want to thank everyone here for their support. Ed

    "When Sanballat heard that we were rebuilding the wall, he became angry and was greatly incensed" (Neh 4:1). Leaders who attempt something greater than themselves will always get attacked and it often comes from those who have a vested interest in what you are changing. Nehemiah was rebuilding the ancient wall of Jerusalem. It was a major undertaking. Not everyone was pleased with this initiative. Sanballat, another government worker, did not want this to happen. When Jesus began confronting the Pharisees about religious traditions, He was attacked by the religious establishment because they had a vested interest that would be...

    They were sons and husbands, fathers and brothers. They were soldiers hailed as “heroes” and “amazing” young men, each a volunteer who chose an Army job that would place them on the front lines. The bodies of Sgt. Eric M. Houck, Sgt. William M. Bays and Cpl. Dillon C. Baldridge were returned to the United States late Monday after an Afghan soldier turned his gun on them in an apparent insider attack Saturday in eastern Afghanistan’s restive Nangarhar province, where they were assisting in the battle against Islamic State terrorists. The sacred homecoming ceremony, known as a dignified transfer, in...

    A Trip To A Christmas Tree In Tennessee The last of my shopping brought me to Pet Smart today. My furry four-legged monarchs, the captains of my existence will have a pretty good haul this year. I bent the concept of “good boys” just a bit to keep the peace. Maneuvering my way through the bustle of shining testaments of affluence on wheels and all the fuss, I turned into the parking lot. I saw what I thought a young boy holding a piece of cardboard with writing, crying for the world to see, a dog was tied to a...

    Deuteronomy 28:2 "And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you…" God loves to bless you. He has even declared that “blessings shall come upon you and overtake you”. This means that you can’t run fast enough to escape them! When you turn one corner, there is a blessing waiting for you. When you turn another corner, you run smack into another blessing! Now, you may think that you don’t qualify for God’s blessings because of the preceding verse which says that these blessings will come to pass only if you diligently obey God’s voice and keep all...
