Mom & Brother
« on: February 02, 2004, 11:17:14 AM »
Hi ya'll,
Just wanted to request that you pray for my mother & brother, who on the way to church-school Saturday hit a tree in my mom's '89 Haundi Excel.  Their injuries are rather minor compaired to what could have been, mom's bruised from hitting the steering wheel & her wrist has a minor fracture.  My brother is also bit bruised from the seatbelt.  However we learned a while back that internal injuries can make themselves evident much later, so please pray.
Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

"What people say when they speak on their own account is repellent and murksome, for their words do not come from the living spring of the Spirit, but are spawned from the morass of their own heart, a bog infested with the leeches, snakes and frogs of desire, delusion and dissipation; the water of their knowledge is evil-smelling, turbid and torpid, sickening to those who drink it and filling them with nausea and disgust."

Oh Ania

Prayers indeed

Prayers for Ania's mom and brother, for complete healing! And in thanksgiving that both walked away.
