What's the character-limit here?
Democrats: A bunch of rich people convincing poor people to vote for rich people by telling poor people that other rich people are the reason they are poor

That was actually a joke; I thought about posting my "problems," which would exceed a 10,000-character character limit, but actually it just boils down to that I hope to gracefully and gratefully accept what's given me, whether a little or a lot; I don't know at the moment.

So that was the deal, and I was trying to make a funny.....and flopped.

I shall pray for Frank's strength to accept what's given him, and the knowledge that I get his funny.  Amen.

The father of a very good friend passed away yesterday afternoon.  He had just been placed in a hospice and was expected to last only a few more weeks...Alzheimers.

Sad news lug-nut.  I will remember your friend in prayer.  I hope the passing was not too difficult.

I need prayer for my husband's grandfather, he was admitted this moring for internal bleeding. The bleeding is coming from his intenses and they are trying to find out where it is going. My FIL is with him and needless to say we are all upset and worried. He isn't a spring chicken and hasn't been well for quite for some time. Please pray for him to pull though and for his wife to have strength. TY.

My SIL is 8 weeks pregnant and last night she started bleeding. She went to the ER last night and everything is pointing to a possible miscarriage. :( This is really hard and upsetting because she been trying to get pregnant for over a year. We know the little baby is in God's hands and there is really nothing anyone can do but wait and pray. His/her heatbeat is down and we are praying that the baby pulls though. Please pray. :(

I started singing in my Catholic church's choir at the end of November.  I'm a tenor, and there's not too many of us; there's far more basses.  Anyway, I was at Mass today and talked with the choir director after the Mass--we weren't singing today, the contemporary ensemble was.  Anyway, one of the basses had a massive stroke Friday morning.  The choir director said a couple of things about this--One, the stroke was so massive that all he'll ever be is in a vegetative state; and two, the stroke was so massive that the surgeons, wherever he is, couldn't operate. 

I'm not sure how old he is, but he's in his late 50s to early 60s.  Wednesday night, our parish had Confirmation, and because of the choir numbers (two tenors and four basses), I sat next to him.  Really nice guy.  It actually was kinda difficult to sing at times, as he had this way of cracking jokes that would be well-timed.  (Those members who sing know what I'm talking about.)  He did have a fainting spell last year, during choir practice (before I joined). 

I really don't know what to pray for here--a miracle, and Dick (his name) regains his health, or that Dick's stay on the Earth end soon, and he go to his Eternal Father, where I'm sure that a bass singing position is waiting for him.  (The tenors there might not get his jokes, however.)  But, I'm asking for prayers for him.

Dick joined the Heavenly choir yesterday at around noon.  I expect to hear him singing, in my mind, at his funeral next week.  Singing at his funeral is the least I can do for him and his family.

As most of you all know, my boyfriend's dad is in the midst of a cancer battle.  He was diagnosed with colon cancer back in October.

It's been a struggle.  His wife left him.  His body rejected the chemo. 

Well, the last month or so, things were really looking good.  On Monday we got some bad news.  They had found some polyps in his colon and we were just praying they were nothing serious.  Today they removed them, and I haven't heard what the result was.

But also, his blood work has shown there's something going on with his kidneys. 

Please keep him in your prayers.  He's the last of my boyfriend's family that's left and he was doing so well.  After the check up last week, he was supposed to only have to go in every 3-4 months, but now it's just all so up in the air.

It's just really hard on my boyfriend.  His dad was just doing so well, he thought that he was going to pull out of it and be okay.  This is just such a shock, even to me.

Just received a phone call from my pop. It looks like my nephew, who is 2 1/2, may have to go in for surgery today for some nerve damage.

They are doing an ultrasound right now and if they determine that there is damage, the surgery will be done immediately.

If you wouldn't mind praying for this little guy. It seems so wrong to be operating on a 2-year-old.

Thank you!

I got a little something in my eye.

Sorry to hear about this...nothing bothers me more then knowing about children with health issues....I will be sure to pray for him, his family and medical care. I know a great  physician and he practices from above and hears our prayers. God Bless this little boy.
