For Cleveland and his family
« on: June 08, 2009, 10:02:48 PM »
I am not going to disclose the reason... but may I ask all of you to say a prayer for one of our own, our active (and wonderful) participant and a Global Moderator, Cleveland, and his family? Thanks... :)

Prayers for him and family...
An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Lord, have mercy on Your devout servant Cleveland and his family.
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.

Many years!!! and congratulations.
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.

Well, I actually only knew, back then, that his wife went into labor. And then, yes, of course, I wanted Cleveland himself to make the announcement.
