Best friend in pain waiting for surgery
« on: November 04, 2010, 03:41:09 PM »
One of my best friends needs surgery. She gets pain a bit even though she takes medication. She is waiting for the phone call from the medical office to schedule her surgery. Her mom is supposed to be out of state part of this month and her dad runs the business, so it will be hard to get the surgery done asap once they call. I ask that she have comfort from her symptoms, piece of mind, a good surgery, etc.

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.

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.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

The waiting is very hard, I know.

Prayers!!!

I should probably specify that my friend's mom was going to be out of town because her first grandchild, my friend's niece, is being born then.
