So much has happened that I really want to post about, and each deserves a separate post.

I had a vacation with some of my very best gal pals in San Francisco.

I spent several days just being with a friend who is mourning the loss of her 19 year old dear son.

I watched my dear daughter dance like an angel on stage, and complete a service project in fulfillment of her Bronze Award in Junior Girl Scouts.

I watched my dear son perform on stage, singing solo, playing electric guitar, playing acoustic guitar, dancing around like he was a rock and roll star, with all the confidence in the world.

My dear husband was nominated for an Emmy.

We bought a (new to us) used car, and promptly backed it into our old car that was still parked in the driveway.

And I have watched a couple of dear friends be publicly humiliated and terribly mistreated in the name of internet forum moderation. These friends, by all that is fair and just, had done NOTHING WRONG, and in the aftermath thereof, were terribly maligned.

In attempting to defend them, while still following all the forum rules, I received what to me was a completely humiliating “slap on the wrist”, and I don’t believe I ought to try to defend myself, for lots of reasons.

My body is reacting badly to all this: my stress comes out physically for me, and let’s just say I am not handling it well. If it’s the same to you, sites like situs judi slot online terbaik might you help de-stress.

If you would like to leave a prayer for me in the comments section, I would be ever so grateful to know that someone has prayed for me. My Mom isn’t around to do this for me, and while my dear husband, the Big Bison, has been stalwart in his defense of me with those who have hurt me, I just would welcome the prayer. Truly, truly I would.

Praying for you. Praying that God would bring complete physical and emotional healing your way. Praying that HE fills you with the peace that you need and to feel the love that He and others feel for you. Susan in WI

Oh man - er....woman. Will pray for you. I can't understand what's going on there (haven't been on for a while) and CANNOT understand why you would've gotten a 'slap on the wrist'. Prayers for peace; physically, mentally, emotionally in the midst of the outside turmoil.

I just read this and felt like you should read it:"The more like Christ we are the more the world will press against us like a vice. But here is joy - for let the vice press you further into Christ, deeper into self-resignation."From To The LionIn recent days I've been encouraged to see seed you've sown come up and bloom.May the King's barns overflow with harvest from seed you sow!
