if you find the time, I could use some prayer; existence is taking its toll on me once more.
I know a secret about a former Supreme Court Justice.  Can you guess what it is?

May the Lord be merciful, grant you strength to endure whatever is ahead, peace of mind to realize it WILL pass and that there IS a way out, and a quick resolution to what bothers you.

Prayers and a BIG HUG!
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.

I just want to thank you for your prayers.  For the last couple of days I've been increasing in despair and depression, but its begun to turn around in the last hour and a half or so.  Thank you, sincerely.

James you are in my prayers, may the Protection of the Mother of God be with you my dear brother.Lord have mercy!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

James, I know what you mean about having trouble existing. This life really doesn't go easy on us sometimes.

Lord, have mercy on the work of your hands, your servant James. Grant healing of body and soul, give quick comfort and peace to him who loves you.

I just, once again, really do want to thank everyone for the outpouring of support.

And yes, I am still in the true sunshine state (Florida must be filled with liars and deceivers to suggest Arizona isn't the sunshine state).
