For my wife
« on: November 20, 2014, 03:13:03 PM »
My wife got verbally dressed down by the principal at her school this morning and she is, naturally, quite upset.  She also has been asked to resign her position as department chair at the end of this year.  She's going through a tough time and I'm just at a loss at how to comfort her.  Prayers to the Lord to comfort her would be most appreciated.  Her name is Carla.

I'm familiar with the feeling. :-\

Lord comfort Carla and guide her to a new position where she will be better appreciated.

Lord have mercy and comfort your handmaiden.
I'm with the camp of 13 million Americans that believe politicians are, or are controlled by, Reptilians. I think only monks can solve this problem. It doesn't seem right that they prefer to ignore it.

May God comfort you and your wife and help you see His will through this trouble.
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

Lord, have mercy on your child Carla.
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.

Lord, have mercy.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.
