Family Issues
« on: November 16, 2012, 09:42:58 PM »
I'm going through some tough family issues at the moment, and I am asking for your prayers. The past few days have been very hard for me.

Essentially my mother and I are having some major issues, and it is tearing the family apart, and stressing out my fiancee to the point of tears.

Lord, have mercy!
Quote from: Fr. Thomas Hopko, dystopian parable of the prodigal son
...you can imagine so-called healing services of the pigpen. The books that could be written, you know: Life in the Pigpen. How to Cope in the Pigpen. Being Happy in the Pigpen. Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.

Lord have mercy on celticfan1888 and his family.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Moms can be like that.

Guide them in these difficult times with your love, wisdom and grace.
I will not be posting or participating here anymore.
They claim this is an Orthodox Christian forum.
Well, it is not!

Lord have mercy!
Do not be cast down over the struggle - the Lord loves a brave warrior. The Lord loves the soul that is valiant.
