For myself and mother-in-law
« on: May 30, 2009, 06:03:34 PM »
Please remember in your prayers myself and my mother-in-law.  In the process of fixing up our new house, my mother-in-law and I have expressed differing opinions on some things and she has reverted to her old "I'm Right, You're just wrong and until you see that, I don't want to talk to or even see you!" self.  I tried to apologize for the strength of my comments earlier and she just told me to go away. 

It's like old times again (she got much better after her earlier brush with death via heart attack) and I really don't want to see that happen again, especially for my wife's sake.

Lord, have mercy and grant us peace.

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.
