Please pray for my husband.

In 2010 my husband had a quadruple bypass, and is having problems again. Added to which his blood tests are looking bleak. Tests for Chronic lymphocytic leukemia are being scheduled. So, please pray for Fr Deacon John.

May the Lord have mercy upon His servant Fr. Dc. John and grant him good health!
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!
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 servants!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

Thank you so much for your prayers. They were really felt yestereday; which started out a very confused and strange day for us all as we think about how things will pan out with this. Hubby has to see his heart surgeon for a whole raft of tests, too. So he is going to be a very busy boy.

I was so grateful yesterday that my daughter's inlaws have an important wedding anniversary party planned at our house this weekend; so lots of therapeutic baking was on the agenda. I almost put a carrot cake in the oven, thinking that the batter didn't look quite right. Fortunately, I realised in time that the bowl of grated carrot was still on the kitchen bench. duh!  :-[

Hubby is very positive, and grateful for your prayers.   :)

Lord, have mercy!
“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either.” +Luke 6:27-29
