Daddy has had a hard life. He has worked 100 hour weeks to support his family. I remember him being hospitalized with exhaustion More than once. He tried very hard to teach us the ways of God. Daddy has many health problems he has chronic COPD. Liver failure, He is on the list for a transplant. He goes in to the hospital to have fluid tapped off of his abdomen at least 2 or 3 times a month. He is now suffering with an enlarged splean and needs many transfusions. He is also in the beginning of an kidney failure. He has had a heart attack. he has diabetes..... I am not asking God to save his life, (Though that is what I want) or to take him. I want him to find the peace that God offers and the strength to do Gods will.

Christ is shepherd over you,
Enfolding you on every side.
Christ will not forsake you, hand or foot,
Nor let evil come near you.

For Those Coping With Illness

I envision all those who are suffering in the body with disease. I see your light. I feel your pain and your sadness. Now with the power of the universe you are free of this disease. You are once again whole and alive.

If your spirit is meant to be set free, then may you go with love and dance in the light of the heavens. May you know peace as never before. I envision a spiral of white light enfolding you and lifting you up carrying you across the doorway to your paradise home.

With arms outstretched you are welcomed and loved. If you are weary and wish to depart may your journey be swift and easy. If you are clinging and wish to remain may you be made whole again. All through the power of the white light of the universe.

Blessings unbounded...

Daddy went for his blood work and again he does not need a transfusion. but once again his doctor dropped the ball he was sopposed to have scheduled it told daddy to go the hospital and did not schedule it. they only have a certain number of beds. I know the hospital has been complaining about the doc not doing his job as this happens every week. so he will go tomorrow daddy had to schedule it. he only gained 14 pounds this week not so bad.

Almighty and everliving God, in your tender love for the human race you sent your Son our Savior Jesus Christ to take upon him our nature, and to suffer death upon the cross, giving us the example of his great humility: Mercifully grant that we may walk in the way of his suffering, and also share in his resurrection; who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.

Prayer for Difficult Times

Your word is a lantern to my feet
and a light upon my path.

I have sworn and am determined
to keep your righteous judgments.

I am deeply troubled;
preserve my life, O Lord, according to your word.

Accept, O Lord, the willing tribute of my lips,
and teach me your judgments.

My life is always in my hand,
yet I do not forget your law.

The wicked have set a trap for me,
but I have not strayed from your commandments.

Your decrees are my inheritance for ever;
truly, they are the joy of my heart.

I have applied my heart to fulfill your statutes
for ever and to the end.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;
and there shall be no more death,
neither sorrow, nor crying,
neither shall there be any more pain:
for the former things are passed away.

Eternal and most glorious God... Thou alone dost steer my boat through all its voyage, but has a more especial care of it, when it comes to a narrow current, or to a dangerous fall of waters. Thou has a care of the preservation of my body in all the ways of my life; but, in the straits of death, open Thine eyes wider, and enlarge Thy Providence towards me so far that no illness or agony may shake and benumb the soul. Do Thou so make my bed in all my sickness that, being used to Thy hand, I may be content with any bed of Thy making. Amen

John Donne

By the Passion of Your Blessed Son

O God, by the passion of your blessed Son you made an instrument of shameful death to be for us the means of life: Grant us so to glory in the cross of Christ, that we may gladly suffer shame and loss for the sake of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Daddy had his blood work yesterday his white count is down to 31 thousand he has to have a transfusion before he can have his tap today. that is if the doctor ordered the blood. some times he does not and some thing that should take 4-5 hours takes all day to days. he has 19 nineteen pounds this week. I hope they take it all. they usually take about 12 litres. every week about 20-25 pounds I think I am praying that things get done and he does not have to wait with all that water on him another day.

3/1/2006 21:05

well daddy had his tap and transfusion. Dear God please give my family enough love to get together and stop sniping and stabbing each other in the back. I love my brothers and sisters. and my father is hurting please help things to stop being so tense with this already tense situation.
daddy went down about 20 pound they feel he still has about 30-40 pounds of extra water on him but I found out today that he is not using the oxygen tank 24 hours a day. i found out that he is walking with out the cane and wheel chair or walker. for much greater distances. he is also walking with his treadmill a few tenths of a mile a day. but 7 months ago the doc told him not to walk. he is also doing weights to help build up the muscle loss that he lost. I am so proud of him to do as well as he has with the things that he has had to endure my father has more strength then I or any of us gave him credit for.
daddy if you ever read this I love you
