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.

Thank God he said I was a politician because Aristotle defined the human person as 'animal politicus.' So at least I am a human person.

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!

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