Prayers for a soldier...
« on: February 22, 2005, 11:11:42 PM »
I just found out that a guy I grew up with in my town of Elmsford died today from a gun shot wound he received late yesterday while serving in Iraq. He was 20 years old. Please keep Michael in your prayers... :(

Lord, have mercy. 
Quote
"What people say when they speak on their own account is repellent and murksome, for their words do not come from the living spring of the Spirit, but are spawned from the morass of their own heart, a bog infested with the leeches, snakes and frogs of desire, delusion and dissipation; the water of their knowledge is evil-smelling, turbid and torpid, sickening to those who drink it and filling them with nausea and disgust."

Lord, have mercy on us all, for we are all sinnners.

Prayers
Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...
