Please pray for granddaughter.
« on: January 07, 2010, 03:39:25 AM »
We have just heard from our daughter in New Zealand that our granddaughter, Abbey, who is only 13 years old, was in hospital due to some kind of stroke or a seizure. Apparently, no one seems sure which. Bloods have all come back ok, but she is having a MRI scan when the specialists get back on deck.

I believe in One God, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.

Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution.

Holy Unmercinaries and Wonderworkers, visit our infirmities. Freely you have received; freely give.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

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.

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.
