Faith



   Iacta alea est  I must confess this openly. I am thoroughly ashamed of the anger that has built up in me, and moreso my subsequent behavior. Please remember me in your prayers.
July 24 at 19:20 EST .



   Gram77  Be patient with yourself and pleased don't have shame. Anger comes into all our lives at some point in time and facing things only one day at a time helps. Please accept my prayers and trust in a Higher Power.

   Iacta alea est  Gram, thank you for the advice and the wisdom. Your kindness and prayers are both welcome and comforting. I do trust fully that God is who he says He is and will be my "shield and buckler" and I will rest in "the secret place of the Most High".....I love Psalm 91. My prayers for blessings for you and all the other dearhearts of The Connection. Thank you.

   BirdsNest  My deepest condolences. It's a rough thing to lose
the person closest to you. It is not easy to go on.
But you must. Time. It takes lots of time.

   Iacta alea est  Please pray to God that He give me greater patience when dealing with my ill mother. She deserves better than the behavior I am displaying.

   MeiDei  Recognizing our shortcomings is 1/2 the battle. Speak to your Mom about it. When dealing with sickness and death most feel frustration, or some guilt; be kind to yourself & you'll find being kind to others will follow. You're in my prayers - but not for patience - be thankful for whatever amount you have. When praying for patience you invite far too many opportunities to exercise it & become over-burdened.

   Iacta alea est  I haven't been here for a few days.....Thanks so much Mei for your prayers, advice and kindness. And you're so right about what you say regarding praying for patience. I'm reminded of the old quip that goes..."God, please give me patience and do it right now!" You are in my prayers too. Thanks again for the friendship....much love from me
to you and all you love.

   Iacta alea est  MeiDei, my most profound thanks forshowing me the link you did. I have been applying the things written in the excerpt, everyday and it is making a daily difference and improvement to my life. And I'm sure if I keep the praise going my life will keep getting better. It (and you ) have made a difference. Much, much love. Hallelujah!

   Iacta alea est  Thanks for caring Mei....myself, not terrible, I go to cardiac rehab 3 times a week, but quitting smoking is more difficult than imagined....Mom is not doing great, sis & I are investigating nursing homes....please keep praying for me & I will do the same for you.

   BirdsNest  lacta, trying to quit smoking proved to be something Hagar just could not do. He quit the day he went in for surgery because he never did get out of a hospital or a nursing home. Keep at it. As for nursing homes, find one where you can visit your mother that's close by. The staff is more efficient when the loved ones are close to watch over the resident. I was with Hagar every minute while he was here locally and I saw the difference in his care. Best of luck. You have a lot on your plate.

   Iacta alea est  Thank you Bird. Had my own bout with kidney stones over the weekend. Was hospitalized and they went in and removed this one. I'm back home and feeling much better. Let's all keep each other in each others' prayers. Much love to all.

   MeiDei  Keeping you in thought & prayers - trusting you & your sister can be of one-mind regarding your Mom so that neither of you have regrets. Quitting smoking when so much is up in the air is daunting, don't get discouraged.

   Iacta alea est  Unfortunately my sister -the lawyer- has decided to turn this into an adversarial circus. Years ago, my parents added her name to the deed of thier house, so now she is trying to get mom into a nursing home, toss me out and sell the house. My Dad recently sold a commercial property -she handled the closing- and now she refuses to turn the money over to them, deciding when and how much to give them at intervals.....and accuses me of stealing from them to boot. My parents refuse to get another lawyer for fear of never seeing their daughter again. Only God can quiet this situation down, but as of now He has been silent toward my prayers.

   MeiDei  If it will make you feel better, it seems your parents know your constancy regardless of the circumstances whereas they fear your sister will ignore them - take heart in that. Prayers continue. I first read "Power in Praise" in the early 70's - made a big difference in my life. Check out: https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=pow

   MeiDei  BTW - I needed to read the above chapter as a refresher for this years continuing challenges & would not have brought it back to mind if not for your post Iacta - so good on both of us.

   Iacta alea est  Thank you so very much Mei. That short chapter has helped me already, in that I have a better, much better grasp on what REAL praise is. I could easily be described as a "manipulator" as pictured in the chapter. But now I know better, and my spiritual heart feels so much more in tune with our loving God. Thanks again.
