please pray for huge undertaking
« on: January 11, 2010, 11:26:22 PM »
I am engaged in setting up a special needs trust, a non profit and doing a fundraiser for my daughter's condition-plus tending my daughter herself. Today brought a new battle for her AAC device, a high tech glorified tablet computer that speaks for her using her eye gaze, as well as the new specialized seating she needs for when she seizes. I am fighting, but I am weary and dh is as well.
Need prayer to continue on unabated despite constant literal headaches, and for dh not to tire in all he does for his family. Struggling to believe God cares about any of this lately.

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

Prayers that you are successful in your endeavors!

May God grant you, DH and your child  strength to accomplish all your tasks!

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.

Lord have Mercy! 
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.
