I will be having eye surgery tomorrow and I have prayed and have friends and family praying for me to get through it and my doctor is a Christian so even better to know that. He has an album that he sings Christian songs on that I love and proceeds go to church and charity. I now have glaucoma and will have to use drops that are very expensive. I pray for healing and the first one did fine praying this one will also. God can heal in a miraculous way and does at times. I see God working miracles in my life all the time in different ways, I look for answers to my prays even if it's no it's ok, doesn't change my faith that God loves me and knows me better than I know myself.
Hi Dolores, Just wanted to share with you that I had two eye surgeries this past year. I am facing another one in the near future. Will remember you in prayer.also my husband has glaucoma and he has had a very hard time tolerating the drops. they started him on a new one a few weeks ago and so far he seems to be doing ok with this particular brand, we are praying this one will get the pressure down.Yes they are very expensive. Hope all goes well tomorrow.

It changed us and we will no longer water down or fluff the truth of God's Holy Word. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God!
Good to hear of your safe deliverance. All Glory to GOD.
It is quite a solemn thing for us to be spoken to by GOD in His Holy Word. Each Word coming from His lips should be listened to and received with profoundest reverence. "Thus saith the LORD" is enough for us. There is no room for question or cavil where His voice is heard. In these evil days...there is little trembling at the Word.
Chad D wrote: In Jude v3 we read "Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints." Vine says the words earnestly contend signify "to contend about a thing, as a combatant". The word earnestly is added to convey the intensive force of the preposition. Why are brothers and sisters who obey this injunction viewed as the enemy, or unloving, or narrow and bigoted, especially by those who don't seem to articulate anything biblically? Very telling.

Sister SF, Please don't leave this forum as your input is quite valuable. Also there are a few of us who stood with you and took a lot of backhanded swipes from a couple on here who will not tolerate anything spoken against Andrea. She provoked this donnybrook that has broken out and some keep it going by tossing in firebrands from their own personal agenda arsenal.
@Dave, I read through every comment, I saw no angry responses to Andrea.Me thinks your judgement might be a tad clouded...just saying. What I did read was several folks who patiently explained their thoughts and reasons for homeschooling. Which I give them all a and ask the Lord to richly bless each and everyone.
