please pray for my grandma!
« on: November 30, 2007, 04:00:28 AM »
My gram just went through surgery one week ago for ovarian cancer and to remove a portion of intestine which was diseased, she has gone through so much, congestive heart failure on top of all this... I saw her tonight and she is in a lot of pain from the surgery... If anyone has a moment please pray from my Gram Joan- she is the only grandparent I have left and her pain makes me want to weep!

Thank You,
Ryan

Yes, our grandparents should have a special place in our hearts.

Praying for Gram Joan.
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. ~Philippians 4:8; St Paul

Lord heal Thy handmaid Joan.
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
