Please pray for my Friends who lost their little one tonight

February 25, 2006

Please pray for my friends who lost their little one tonight.

We went to our day care to pick up Fischer and Ciana. While there another father was picking up his children also. When they went in to get their baby boy he had died in his sleep. We tried to give CPR and did until the ambulance arrived. We then went to the hospital to find Kyler had died.

This is a real sad and hard situation. The parents are beside themselves with grief as we are also. One cannot imagine the loss. Their names are PJ and Dawn and this is their biological child. The older brother Keenan is 3 and does not really know what has happened. They have a large family so there is support and some in the family are believers. I am not even sure how to pray so will just say, “As the Lord leads.”

The day care people love the kids so much and this is real devastating. This could mean the closing of the day care. Pray also for C and J… J was in charge as this happened so she feels very guilty. (I am only using their initials)

I do not believe there was anything that was done wrong. This is just one of those horrible things…
My heart is broken.
Blessings,

Debbie needs prayer

February 15, 2006

Debbie needs prayer.

Debbie is a reader I have recently come to know… Not well, but well enough to know she is hurting.

She needs surgery.

Life has a way of sometimes focusing in on us to the point we become like a dear in the headlights. She needs no more advise, which I admittedly gave. In a way I wish I could take the advice back and have my family go over and love on Debbie and her family,

Pray if you will. She is part of the Body of Christ… I am hurting for her… I hope you are also.

Blessings,

Somewhat shocked

February 13, 2006

I am somewhat shocked when someone adds me to their blog roll… Makes me wonder a bit.

Not that I think I have nothing to say, but that what I say is important and is well thought out and not just a reaction to something. Writing is tough. At times I read others writings and wish I had their humor, or wit, or intellect. Sometimes I just wish I could understand what the heck some are actually saying as their writing well surpasses my our intellect.

The one thing I have come to realize is that it does not matter how smart someone is. Somehow, some way, when the heart of God, gets into our own heart and our mind gains not just knowledge, but understanding also…. Well, The Kingdom has expanded. We often think that just our own mental understanding is enough… But man, that is not true as we can not possibly grasp beyond ourselves without someone pulling us up. To understand God as He reveals Himself to us is a great challenge, but we must not think ourselves more by thinking that mere human smarts… As smart as smart can be, will get us closer to God. If it is by Grace through faith we are saved, then it is by Grace through faith we live and learn. God can teach us through other men, but to think that other men can teach us about God, and leaving God out of the equation…. Well, that is often what we call, seminary.

We must tap into the Vine, to drink it’s nourishment, to grow strong and bear fruit. We can read the bible and never gain what it really means, for only with the Holy Spirit guiding us in all things will we be able to pull from the bible the understanding of the Life of Christ that now dwells in us.

I pray for my readers, and friends, and even those who hate me…. That you gain not from me, but from the true source that can give us life… And that is LIFE ETERNAL, Christ Jesus Himself.

Thank you, my new friend Daniel for adding me, and as always,
blessings,
