A Prayer Request

If you have been visiting this site for any length of time, you may know of Jeri who posted in the forums and before the forum was installed, posted many comments here. She became a friend and I benefited greatly from her wisdom. She even gave blogging a try at her site called Sober Minded and participated in some Blog Swaps, but later elected to stop blogging so she could go back to doing what she really enjoyed, which was reading and posting at other people’s sites.

I received an email from Jeri’s sister this morning telling me that Jeri’s only son, Joe, died last Saturday night. He was only 23 years old. She asked that we pray for Jeri, her husband and their three daughters. She said “Jeri is a strong christian woman as well as a loving mother but she needs God and time and the love of all her christain family and lots of all of the above.” Joe was a believer, so we can rejoice that he has gone to be with his Father.

So let’s lift up Jeri and her family in prayer, that God would provide them the comfort that only He can give. Let’s pray together that God would keep their eyes focused on Him, knowing that nothing happens outside of His control.

    Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

    If you have spent any time at all on YouTube, you have probably seen videos of people hearing for the first time or people seeing color for the first time—videos of people who, through the miracles of modern science, have senses restored that had either been missing altogether or that had become dull through illness…

    We All Have To Do With God

    Every one of us must deal with God. Every one of us must, at some time, face God. Every one of us must be prepared to give an account to God. For, as Scripture says, “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto…
