  • Old age slips up on you in a snap of a finger

    06/09/2024 4:09:56 PM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 304 replies
    I don't remember when I got old, it just happened. One day I turned around and discovered I was an old man. Thinking back on it I think it was after my wife died. When Sheila died it took all the wind out of my sails. I'm now adrift, without rudder, without anchor and without a North Star. The bilge water is creeping up and threatening to put the fires out for good. If you've ever experienced being dead in the water in the middle of an ocean, that's how I'm feeling right now. It's a surreal feeling. 'O God,...

    Please continue to pray for Allie I just got an update from my daughter in law about Allie. Here is what I heard. This all started with the Flu which attacked Allie's heart which reduced the flow of oxygen to her brain which has caused some level of damage. Doctors were able to remove her breathing tube, so Allie is breathing on her own. During the intubation process Allie bit off part of her tongue so she had surgery to repair the damage. She is still on dialysis and unfortunately not very responsive. The prognosis for her recovery to full...

    Good early evening to you Beloved, Dear Lord Jesus please Bless and Heal in return all who have lifted my dear husband John up in prayer for his healing from this thing that keeps attacking him. IN JESUS NAME, IT WILL STOP! Tomorrow AM he is scheduled for bloodwork, and his doctor will determine what to do from results of that. He is up and about, good spirits. He will not have to fast for the tests, a good help. O thank you so very very much again, my Dear Beloved FRiends in Christ Jesus!
  • Prayers requested Beloved FRiends: Awaiting doctor’s response; my husband John is having bleeding again

    Beloved FRiends, my dear husband is having a rectal bleeding event again. I am awaiting his gastroenterologist’s callback as to go ahead and bring him to hospital to be evaluated. It is best that his doctor send word to the ED to expect him, it will keep them from setting him aside in the waiting area instead of taking him straight back into triage / bed. He is at the moment exhaustedly sleeping and I am keeping a close eye on him. Asking that The Lord Jesus Heal my husband of this malady that I think is now peptic in...

    Hi everyone. It may be already a fait accompli.. My brother in law, a former Buffalo Cop suffered a stroke last week and is going to be taken off his respirator this afternoon. He is a good guy who fought the good fight. He is a family man, and he could be funny as hell whenever there was a family get together. He is 64, and he is a good friend. If you have a second, perhaps you can remember him in your prayers.

    As I have reported, 4 year old Allie, a member of my extended family was in ICU in Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) being treated for a serious infection of unknown origin. Because of the great care and attention Allie is getting, she has rallied and is now on a path to recovery and return to her mom and dad. Because of some of the extreme effects of her illness, Allie has been left with some brain damage. The extent of the damage is undetermined at this point but it is nonetheless, real and something that must be worked on....

    New York Post ^ | Nov. 15, 2023 | Houston Keene
    American Federation of Teachers (AFT) PresidentRandi Weingarten was slapped with an X community note after asking where the “women” were during an all-male Jewish prayer service. Weingarten, who said in 2010 she considers herself to be a “deeply religious” Jew, quoted Jewish conservative commentator Mark Levin’s video footage of the minyan — a quorum of Jewish adults, traditionally male, required for certain religious observances — outside the White House. “Where are the women?” Weingarten asked in the post, which has its comments section limited to Weingarten’s followers. The post garnered a response from Levin as well as a community note...

    I'm asking for prayers for my Mom, who is having some severe circulatory issues in her leg, is going to lose a toe and possibly her foot. It isn't diabetes, but a genetic vascular problem. I know this works, because the prayers for my Dad get credit in him recovering from a shattered pelvis. He's recovered, and back on his feet and getting around without a cane or walker (at 92). All things are possible with The Lord.

    After the horrific wildfires on the Hawaiian island of Maui last week that took the lives of at least 99 and left more than 1,000 unaccounted for, many Americans are donating money to help the victims. Many more are offering their thoughts and prayers, including former President Barack Obama, who grew up in Hawaii but infamously said after a mass shooting in 2015: “Thoughts and prayers are not enough.” At the time, Obama condemned the phrase, saying, “Our thoughts and prayers are not enough. It’s not enough. It does not capture the heartache and grief and anger that we should...
