I humbly ask each of you to pray for my mother as she will be having knee replacement surgery.

 In Christ,

Lord, have mercy;

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

A big heartfelt THANK YOU for all your prayers!  She had laproscopic surgery on both knees where the vertical cartilage was snipped on both sides of each knee *then* an incision was made under each knee cap so they (her knee caps) could "fall" back down in place.  Sorry for the graphics.  She's recovering very well but moving very slow.  I tease her about getting a walker with the tennis balls on the front feet.  I don't think she see's the humor... ;D  Again, thank you all very much.

Lord, Grant speedy recovery.

My mother had similar surgery, and she was a new woman: said she should have done it years ago.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
