Family friend - sick mother
« on: December 29, 2007, 10:48:46 PM »
A good family friend of ours called us yesterday, and told us about his wife's condition. She had a stroke over 6 months ago, and is still unable to get out of bed. Theyre a very wonderful orthodox family, very faithful and devout, and have helped us when we were in need, especially when we came to Australia many years ago.

I just ask for prayers that this faithful woman will gain her strength and be blessed with health. and on top, she has taken care of her sister's childen, so I cannot imagine how hard it is for them.

Thank you.

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.

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
