How about everyone saying a little prayer for the souls of the dead and the survivors in Myanmar.  There are a lot of hurting souls in the world today. Maybe our prayers can bring comfort to some of them.
Man’s greatness is so obvious that it can even be deduced from his wretchedness, for what is nature in animals we call wretchedness in man, thus recognizing that, if his nature is today like that of the animals, he must have fallen from some better state which was once his own.

Amen!  Hopefully this tragedy can somehow help bring a change in leadership there.

Chaplain (LTC) Larry Blum.

Brigade Chaplain...3rd Bde. 1st Armored Division Baghdad Iraq 2003-04.

Ch. Blum had to return early from his second tour in Iraq and was diagnosed with a brain tumor.

They were able to operate but only got part of the tumor.  He's had to go through some grueling Chemo to try and get the rest of it.

He just within the last couple weeks was taken out of ICU.

I never missed an opportunity to be his driver or gunner on his vehicle.  Joked with him that I did it to increase my chances of staying alive LOL!.

He was the source of comfort to so many of us in the Brigade when we'd lose a fellow soldier.  I hope the Lord and those of us that were part of his "flock" can give him the same kind of comfort and strength.

Sorry hear this Sarge....I will be praying for his comfort.

The daughter of a very close friend was 2-3 months pregnant with twins.  Early this week her doctor could find only one heartbeat.  Now there are none.  She is absolutely devastated.  Prayers for her, her husband, and their families would be appreciated.

I would like for everyone to keep in their prayers this memorial day the veterans who have died in the line of duty to protect us from the enemies of God and freedom.

I normally am not the type to ask for prayers for myself, but I could use some right now, as I'm having an operation on Thursday.   Really don't want to talk about it any more than that, as my stress levels are through the roof right now.  :(

Relax in the knowledge your friends are pulling for you and praying for you.

Knowing people care has always lifted my spirits.  I hope it does yours.

Not good. Her and my son found him. He left no note so she has no idea why he did it. Thank you all for your prayers.

I have a triple request right now:

1.  My aunt Freida:  She found out last Friday she has a grapefruit sized tumor on one of her kidneys.  The good news is they don't think it spread, but she'll find out more tomorrow.  Please pray for her.

2.  Also last week, my aunt Freida's mother-in-law died.  Mrs. Brasseaux was a very lovely lady.  My aunt's family is suffering not only from the death, but also the news of Freida's ill health.  Please keep them in your prayers. 

3.  I learned today that my Grandpa has prostate cancer.  It's slow growth, so the doctor says this won't kill him.  Please pray for him as well.


Thank you.

Thank you.  It's tough on the family right now.  My aunt's tumor is attached to her adrenal gland and shooting her blood pressure to stoke levels.  They're doing more tests and her surgery should be next week once they're done with the tests.

I'm worried about my grandfather.  His doctor tends to say "oh, well you've lived a good life, there's nothing we can do."  He's very dismissive of my grandpa's complaints.  A couple of years ago my grandpa was having his bi-yearly physical and complained of chest pains and congestions.  The doctor said it was just the flu.   :whatever:  He had a triple bypass within the month, and almost died.

I'm taking off work next Thursday (and I have Friday off already) and I'm headed down there for the weekend to see what's going on.
