Vacation for Grandparents
« on: July 14, 2008, 09:18:08 PM »
My yaya and papou (grandparents) are going to Cooperpedy for a small holiday and to get away from the cold winter in Melbourne, I ask for peoples prayers for a safe journey there and back and also for their stay. This may seem like a joke but to a lesser extent prayer for me and my two greek brothers who are living there without experience of not having someone care for us (yes all the stereotypes are true :D), pray that we learn through this experience and come closer to God.
The sins I don't commit are largely due to the weakness of my limbs.

Lord have mercy on you all! A happy vacation to your grandparents, and a good adventure in independence and dependence upon God, to you and your bros! 8)

Lord, have mercy.
As a result of a thousand million years of evolution, the universe is becoming conscious of itself, able to understand something of its past history and its possible future.

Lord have mercy on your servants.
I have no doubt they will meet God there. Our God is the God of the Desert.
I love Cooperpedy! I lived there for 6 months. It never rains in Cooperpedy, but the first night I spent there it poured, and I woke up to find my dugout flooded and my torch floating beside me!
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord have mercy!  I have to say, that's just too funny.  Your yia yia would be proud.  :)
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so. -- Douglas Adams
