Former Classmate
« on: January 07, 2009, 12:31:44 AM »
I just found out that a classmate from my recent studies for a 2-year software engineering degree was recently diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease).  May the Lord have mercy on His servant Daniel during these last years of his sojourn on earth, and may God grant wisdom to those tasked with caring for Daniel, especially to Daniel's wife Emily.

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 the work of Your Hands.

(For those British and Australian English speakers, "ALS" or "Lou Gehrig's Disease" is "Motor Neurone Disease" or "MND").
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord have mercy.

Lord have mercy on Your servant Daniel.

Lord, have mercy on your servant, Daniel and give him and his family strength at this terrible time of suffering.

Lord, have mercy!
Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.
