For my sister again
« on: May 08, 2009, 03:20:53 PM »
Christ is risen!  Indeed, He is risen!

Please remember in your prayers my sister CAROLYN who took a nasty fall down the stairs this afternoon due to complications with her illness (Addison's Disease).  She isn't really taking care of herself and changing both her behavior and attitude to deal with her condition and, as a result, became light-headed while descending the staircase at home and fell most of the way.  My parents, who live with her, are beside themselves; it's rare for my father to express any emotion other than anger and to hear him on the phone breaking down was very difficult.  Please pray that Carolyn not only comes through this but also wakes up to the fact that she needs to take better care of herself.

Lord, have mercy!

Lord have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
