Grandma
« on: November 15, 2007, 02:37:47 AM »
Headed to visit Grandma from Friday (tomorrow) until Thursday.

Grandma is of (never-go-to-)Church of England background and has asked me a few questions lately about the Orthodox Church. I'm aware there are none in her town though.

Please pray that Grandma may be guided by God and for safe train travels.

Thank you all.

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

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.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

May God's love through the Holy Spirit give you the love, words and faith you need.

Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
