Ladybug, I am reading the comments as I wait for the time of the biopsy and have been strenghtened by the prayers and scripture given and Sprugeon one of my favorite always blesses me with his quotes. I am definitely learning how to be like the pearl. Dorcas, thanks again for your kind words, thoughts and prayers and most of all the scriptures. No, it's May 8 in San Diago, Calif. but his parents and sister are flying out there. So wanted to, though. Christropher, thanks to you also, you have helped me a lot on here as to how I should handle myself more like Christ would want me to, believe me I am learning these hard lessons and hopefully making me a pearl one day. And sc thank you for your prayers and scriptures and forgiveness for my words spoken that offended you as well as anyone on here. Love you all because you are my brothers ans sisters in Christ. I was trying to find scriptures to comfort and strenghten my faith and they did come to me from you all.
Dorcas, I so appreciate your concern and prayers for my husband. The lymph nodes have grown larger since Feb. The last scan showed them a better picture they said and now he will have a biopsy done Tuesday on one that's on his chest but may have to wait on the one on his back right above his heart until later. The surgeon is very good and God is able to pull him through. The cancer doctor is saying it is lymphoma and we will know more after the biopsy. Thank you so much for your prayers which I see as God using you to give me comfort and faith. We really need christian brothers and sisters in these times we have to go through!!! God bless you and keep you and your family safe. My grandson is graduating from Boot Camp and will soon be a Marine in the US Marine Corps. May the 8th. I believe. God got him through it.
Sc, you are right, and God may be sure enough using you as a way to be taught some lessons that He wants me to learn about myself to make a better christian out of me. I have issues in my life that need help from God to deal with the right way and no name touched me on that. Whatever happens to me or said to me God wants to show me a better way and make me a better person. Thank you for caring.
Penned, amen..sc if you go back and read my posts, I said that I had issues with anger and have to stop posting. I get caught up in all the anger not just here but in things going on in my life. Dorcas, graciously helped me out with that by her own feelings about this anger. People who are hurt tend to lash out in anger. I did the same thing on the very first thing I posted on here which was a very stupid thing to say and unlike you had no one but Christropher to back me up and pennned. I can say, I was wrong but you can't. Did you see me post on the last Franklin Graham post? Or the Easter post? Why put myself through all the bickering when nothing is accomplished but anger and bitter feelings. I posted on this one because I understood where no name was coming from. I meant, I had quit posting on this forum and dealing with things in my life that no one knows about but God, just as I said that God revealed to me, just absorb the hurts and allow Him to handle things in His own way and timing. It's less stressful for me if I do this, that way if you are right and I am wrong then He will deal with me as He did no name who repented of his wrong in the matter. Sc I care or I wouldn't go to the trouble to even explain myself to you.
Jim and Sc..I rest my case. You just proved my point. No name, you have the fruit of the Spirit and see things the way God wants us to..thanks for your comment back to me, very encouraging (God helping me out here) Thanks pennned,, you are always encouraging as well as many others. News flash from this mornings paper...6 police officers charged with felonies in the death of Freddie Gray from assault to murder.Baltimore goes from rage to relief. Their picture showed 3 blacks and 3 whites. State's attorney said Gray's arrest was illegal and unjustified, and that his neck was broken because he was handcuffed and shackled and placed head first into a police van, where his pleas for medical help were repeatly ignored as he bounced around inside the small metal box. I can't go on with the rest of the news report but it did take the city by surprise because of the results of the police criminal and official autopsy results. All this violence toward cops because of a few bad cops is as bad as what happens in cases like this. Innocent people suffering at the hands of rioters, no excuse for this.
No name, I had to stop posting on things that were not even connected with anything other than a person that I thought of as a deep Christian man and Christmas and other things and these very ones that are calling you out over your part in the debate, have ripped me apart about my comments to the point I no longer want to comment either. What was said to you, take it with a grain of salt except for a few on here that are more gracious. David Wilkerson in his book,"The Vision" and later I will quote what he said, written in 1972. He mentioned this very thing about signs of renewed racial tension and violence between the white and black as it was during the civil outrage in the 50s&60s. Along with weather changes, christian persecution, churches losing their tax exemptions and christian organizations and much more that I see beginning to happen. I, too, found myself reacting to comments that were not very christ like, to those that were really over zealous with their comments but never owned up to it because they ere right and I was wrong so in their zeal they were setting me straight. I just laugh at it now and try to absorb the hurt and let the Lord in His wisdom handle it for me.
Penned, apology accepted. My home is in a far country also and like the old song says,' This world is not my home, I'm just a passing through my treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue. I don't feel at home in this world anymore." Amen, sister your remark brought back memories of singing this song many years ago in a Penecostal church that I once attended. Continue to keep my husband in your prayers. We are going this morning for another CT scan and then wait 3 months, take another one to see if there has been a change in the lymph nodes. Blessings dear sister.
Well, unprofitable servant, I deserve to be sold swamp land if I actually believed Jim's constant rantings. No, just trying to be a little nicer than what he's been to my favorite people ; The Bushes, Reagan, the Grahams. Sorry, to say about a sitting president but O'Bummer whoops, OBama, is the worst president the United States has ever had and we have had some bad ones.
Our preacher's message today was very clear about Islam, how it came about. No one is against Muslims, they need our prayers as well as the Jews and the lost whoever but the Islam religion is from Satan and evil. Have any of you read the Qu'Ran their Bible that they believe in. Pretty scary stuff. No one said the Jews are saved but they are still God's people and He does have a plan for them in the end times and they will be standing alone when Jesus returns. They are still in their homeland and will be until Christ's return.
Sorry wasn't suppose to be to me but addressed to the ones that are admant against appalled. We all should be appalled!! The only place that has not allowed these people into their land is the hated Jews. They know who their enemies are and so strange but these people have survived surrounded by them. This tiny spot of land that was given to them by God will have a big part in the end times and we may see it because we are now living in the end of the end times.
Dolores, and do these same Muslims go into the fee zones of our country? Use our hospitals, our doctors and put shops in our malls, go to our restaurants? Not very many are Christians and I have already mentiioned the shop in the mall where I have my hair beautian works and the day 2 guys came into her shop and wanted to talk to her about their religion, showed her their Koran, that btw speaks about kill the infidels, do harm to your own family if necessary. A religion of hate if you will. If these muslims are Christians, they would not be living in a no zone community using Sharia Law. We have them in Dallas and Houston, and trying to use their Sharia Law rather than the laws of this land?? At least my church( Baptist) does not have their head buried in the sand. We are having a Simulcast tonight called The Third Target Facing Isis and Ialamic Terrorism with Joel C. Rosenberg. Our sitting President, like Nero the Emperor of Rome did , plsayed his fiddle while Rome burned, will be singing "I want to teach the World to Sing" ( if he still has a head, that is) while America burns.
Well, Jim, if it makes you feel better, I do pray for our leaders to be guided into making decisions for the good of the country just as we are told to do by Paul and that was when they were under the rule of Nero. They did have to hide away in Catacombs at times. I thought my friends nickname would be fun to remember when he is no longer sitting President or standing golf player or at his desk with his powerful pen. Blessings Jim, no offense intended.
Well, what can you expect from a president that wants our National Anthem to be,"I want to Teach the World To Sing". And then go play golf after he releases five terrorist in exchange for a deserter.I have a friend that has a name for this sitting president and for the one who posts on here that just loves nicknames, this one is for you..O'Bummer.
I will get this e-mail from Dr. Mercola. I have always been interested in medical issues and the food that I eat. Try to eat healthy and need to read up on what is to be avoided in our food supply. I do agree that God wants us to be healthy, watch what we eat, live longer healthier lives. Thanks again, sister pennned.
s.c., Dorcas penned and others that have prayed for us, your prayers are so appreciated. Went to the surgeon that was to do the biopsy, yesterday and he asked him several questions and then looked at him and said,"you don't look like a man that has lymphoma." Since this doctor has done numerous biopsies on these type people, felt like the two decisions we had, one being to wait 3 months and do another to see if it had grown any or biopsy it, we made the choice to wait and the doctor agreed. Our son works with these surgeons(puts patients to sleep and knows all the ins and outs of what can happen during the biopsy) agreed also to wait and see. Well, last night he went coon hunting with his friends to try out the new Coon Dog they had bought and the dog did good, he treed a coon not to eat, just to tree. Prayers answered as far as I'm concerned. Made the right decision...thanks again prayer warriors. Have a very blessed day.
Amen, John UK, we all need to be reminded of this excellent post, the key word being, daily. Seek Him every morning even if we have to get up early to read his word and pray. Gives us much strenght to face the day and whatever it may bring.I think of my time with Him as daily manna for my soul.
Thank you s.c. for your prayers. Penned how do you know so much about these things, never heard of all these dangers that are in our food supply. Actually, no country has to drop a dirty bomb on us, we are slowly killing ourselves. The bomb would be quicker, however
Could very well be true. My husband worked for the Electric Power co in a rural area and they had to use this in most areas to kill brush in areas lines would be put up and a lot of poles were set deep in woods with lots of brush. Now, two enlarged lymph nodes have been found in the chest area from a C-scan, MRI and is being set up today for a biopsy by a surgeon. Our son has been very concerned as it is located close to the heart and big arteries around it. He is in the medical field and knows it's dangers. Anyway, reading this article has made me realize that we made the right decision to go ahead with the testing, rather than adopt a wait and see decision. God does give us our comfort and guidance as we need it. You would be amazed at how this all came about. He really does work in mysterious ways, His wonders to perform.
My thoughts exactly, John Uk, when I read that I thought, I don't need "proof" from scientist to prove anyhing that's in God's Holy Word. All these religious people that now say it's ok for homosexuals to marry and be accepted into their church has just said, " I don't believe God's word is true". God never changes. He is the same yesterday as He is today and tomorrow. Sin is wrong in God's eyes even though the world's morals say it's acceptable.
