For my son...
« on: December 22, 2004, 12:50:20 PM »
... who just sent off his application to the college of his choice - the only college that has what he wants to study.  The application is in front of those who make the decision and we should know in January.  Thanks!

Jeni,

My prayers for Vincent, that he will be accepted at that august institution and have a blessedly successful future.

Many years,

Neil

Prayers for Lord to grant your petition.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Hooray - our prayers were answered favorably!  Thank you all so much!  Please pray for funding to come through for us, our next big hurdle.

I am going through the whole college application process too; if you guys could pray for... well... I guess for God's will to be done in all of this, that would be grrrrrreat (as Tony the Tiger would say.)
