What's Up March 2014
I've been sick with sinus infections, and anemia. So, I haven't been on much. God is always blessing me in spite of the setbacks.

Continue to pray for Toby and Hunter. Toby is my son-in-law's brother, whose wife died a month ago, leaving him with their 2 month old infant. Toby has heart disease, congenital, and is right now trying to pick up the pieces right now.

Christians With Depression
Definitely, do NOT listen to David. If you are on antidepressants and mood stablizers, it means you have been diagnosed, by a psychiatrist with clinical depression. Having these meds, and the doctor to prescribe them for you, is something to give thanks to the Lord for.

One thing that helped me tremendously, in addition to proper medication, is psychotherapy, with a licensed psychologist. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has been proven to help with clinical depression, in addition to the medication.

One of the assignments he once gave me was to make a daily gratitude list, at the end of each day. My lists started small, but at the end of a month, my lists were extensive.

Heaven Hell Suicide
My father-in-law committed suicide when my ex and I were young, married parents. My ex was very deeply wounded because of it. His Dad suffered from clinical depression, and had been hospitalized three years earlier, because of a previous attempt.

One of my pastor's in lost his 18 year old son to suicide. There are no words you can say to the family members.

It's very important to pray for the family.

It's not our place to judge. Scripture says that believers are sealed, and our names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life. Suicide does not break the seal, or erase our names. Romans 8:38-39.

What's Up February 2014
Thank you everyone, for your prayers and love.

The viewings are Tuesday, and the funeral is Wednesday, at my church. My church is arranging meals for my daughter's in-laws, and the young lady's parents, who are not believers.

Jessi was 32 years old. Her husband has Marfan Syndrome, which caused him to need open heart surgery at a young age. He was reluctant to have children, but became willing knowing if the Lord took him, Jessi would be there to raise the baby. Poor little guy, he's barely two months old. Prayer for his poor Daddy.

Hugs to all. Prayers are so important right now. Family members are coming in from out of town, including from Maine to here in Michigan. Weather could be a problem.

I'm heartbroken as I write this prayer request. Please pray for my daughter, and her family, and her in-laws, especially Toby and baby Hunter. The Lord chose to take Jessie, Toby's wife, home to heaven today. Their baby, Hunter is only 7 weeks old. My 6 year old granddaughter was inconsolable for 20 minutes when her Daddy told her. Also, please pray for Jessie's parents and family. I'm not sure of their relationship with the Lord. My daughter's in-laws all know the Lord. Thank you.

Oh my, Darlene. That is just awful. Those poor children, and your poor granddaughter. My Mom stayed with my Father, after every violent, drunken rage, because she had no way to support us kids. Also, because, her parents, who were only common-law married, split up, with five kids between them. She swore her kids were not going to grow up in a broken home. Also, during the 60's, police didn't handle domestic violence calls effectively.

I know how hard it can be to sit back, and hope your children, grandchildren, are safe from potential harm. I'm so grateful I did not fall apart, when my kids were little, and would need stitches, or to be admitted to the hospital. It made me stronger, for the bigger challenges.

Darlene, I know how proud you are of your son. I feel the same way about my daughter-in-law. She appeared in the national tour of "Les Miserables," in the ensemble, and as an understudy for one of the leads. Last year, she appeared on the Academy Awards who, with the actors from the movie. She has also starred in many regional theater productions, as well as off-Broadway shows. I'm also proud of my son, because as an executive in Nielsen Corporation, he gets to travel a lot, which allowed him to see her a lot during her tour.

Wine Or Grape Juice
Monk: Any amount of alcohol can set me off, that's why my doctors won't prescribe me any cough syrups with alcohol. Nor do I use mouthwash with alcohol. Nyquil has alcohol, so I don't buy it.

Unless you've walked in our shoes, don't be so dismissive about such matters.

Thank you for checking on me, Lidia. I haven't been on the computer lately.

My dog is doing better, now that the snow's not as deep.

I'd appreciate prayer for my hands. I saw a hand surgeon, and he referred me to hand therapy. They made custom hand splints today, and I am to wear them whenever I am doing anything with my hands. I am just getting used to them. The doctor says if the hand therapy and splints don't help, he'll do cortisone shots in two months.

Lydia, I am praying for you, as you deal with these uncertainties. God is in control, and has you in the palm of His hand.

I'd appreciate prayer. The snow is so deep, and it has been so cold, my dog is refusing to go outside to go potty. When I do get him out there, he doesn't go. As a result, he is having accidents. I'm renting this house from my daughter and son-in-law, and they will be upset with this behavior.

Here in Mid-Michigan, we are in a state of emergency due to the amount of snow, plus freezing cold weather, we have right now.

A couple of weeks ago, this area was hit by an ice storm, and the entire town lost electricity, for almost a week. I was in Pennsylvania then. I'm just praying we don't lose power again.

Constitutional Rights Restricted
Jed: I understand what you're saying, BUT, feel I must remind you that is why out Founding Fathers created THREE branches of government. The Judicial Branch's job is to rule on the Constitutionality of laws passed by the Legislative Branch.

If you believe YOUR personal rights have been violated, you have the right to appeal it, which I suggest you do. There are Christian and secular legal groups which should help you in that.

What's Up December 2013
Please pray for me. I lost my MedicAlert bracelet, which I only need if something happens to me and I'm not conscious to speak for myself in a medical emergency. I've needed it since August 2006, and have only ever taken I off for surgery. I have never had that kind of medical emergency, but will be traveling starting Saturday, and won't be able to replace it till January.

JMarc: I thought Jesus said we were to pray in our prayer closets, not as the Pharisees do, in public. I see the prayer you posted on three separate threads, as just like the Pharisees' Take the log out of your own eye, before trying to take the speck out of mine.

Constitutional Rights Restricted
Jed: I could be mistaken, but I believe the question means, have YOU, Jed, ever been arrested, or physically prevented, from practicing any of your FIRST Amendment rights.

Example: I once had a Sunday School student tell me that a teacher ordered her to go to the bathroom, and turn her shirt around, because it had something about the girl's faith in Christ on it. The girl went to the principal's office, and told her that she would get a lawyer and sue, because to be forced to change her shirt is a violation of her First Amendment right to Free Speech and Freedom of Religion. The principal agreed with my student. Teacher was corrected.

What's Up December 2013
Karen: The stockings sound wonderful. I hope the party was a success.

What Is Welfare
Elder: I read, today, that the sign interpreter at Mandela's funeral was suffering a "schizophrenic episode." His exact words.

What Is Welfare
Shira: I know plenty of people, earning much more than I am, who voted for Obama in both elections. Not all of his voters are on TANF, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, SNAP, Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program, or Medicaid. A lot earn more than $100,00, and have college and graduate degrees. They pay their fair share in taxes, and donate to charity.

I'm going to research this to get an accurate demographic. I've done some research, but don't have all the information yet.

What's Up December 2013
Darlene, I'm praying for your husband, and you. Please keep us informed.

I'd appreciate prayer. I've had pain in my hands for months now. I had x-rays done, and my doctor referred me to a hand specialist. When he read the x-ray report to me, I could not comprehend what he was saying. Translated, he ordered blood work and an x-ray of my left wrist. The blood work is to diagnose rheumatoid arthritis, which my mother has. I'm not very happy about this prospect. Please pray.
