Dear folks, may I ask you to say a quick prayer for my wife Lesya (baptismal name Alexandra). Yesterday, she made dinner (baked potatoes), and, feeling hungry, tried to swallow a rather large piece of very hot potato right from the oven, and burned her throat pretty badly. Today, she has difficulty speaking and swallowing, and says that there is a chunk of very sensitive tissue in her throat.

Also, we both are in a rather bad emotional shape (arguments about "this stupid religion," money issues, etc.).

Many thanks to you all for your kind support, as always.

God bless you both.  Just lit a small candle and said a small prayer if front of the icons.

May Saint Blaise -Vlasiy- bless you too.

Lord, remember your children, Heorhij and Lesya. Lay your hand of healing upon Lesya and help her make a full recovery. And bring peace and resolution to their financial situation as well as these other issues Heorhij brought to our attention. Touch them both with your Physician's hand. Amen.

God is with you always, in hard times and good times, especially in desperate times. This little prayer always helps me and I always say to myself:

Dear Sweet Jesus
Aid Me during Hard Times
Save Me in Despair Times
Have Mercy on Me in Judgment Day

Thank you all again for your kind prayers! Lesya is OK now. She can talk and swallow quite normally and there are no signs of any inflammation in her throat. The only "reminder" of the burn is that she cannot eat hot salsa or drink anything with alcohol in it, but I guess this will pass, too, and besides, that's not something one cannot survive without.Smiley

As for the emotional conflict, that's pretty much over now, too. Actually, it was caused by my not very sensible remark that we might give a bit more money to the Church.Smiley We have a lot of debt because of our daughter's former college expenses, home improvement expenses, support of our numerous relatives in Ukraine, etc. The 40-year old wooden fence near our house became totally rotten, and we have hired a guy to help us make a new one. So we aren't saving anything and in horrible times like now, my remark sounded really stupid and cruel, and I deserved the reaction I got. Smiley
