Prayer Requests 8-13-16

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 112

¹Praise ye the Lord. Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.

His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.

Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.

Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.

A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.

Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.

He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.

His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies.

He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.

10 The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.

  1. And just like that, daughter is back to normal. Will it last? Is it just hormonal? We wait and record and wait and record. Yesterday she stayed at the library and had a good talk with a solid believer. I am optimistic. Thanks for praying and keep it up.

  2. Son, on the other hand….. He did say he was getting fed this past week. Apparently, his boss bought food for him, sandwich makings. Which, when we send that, he throws it away. He is out there and we are trying to warehouse him as social workers instructed, though we still will continue to try to instill character and opportunity for seeing Christ.

  3. Please say a prayer for my doggie. Poor Heidi has been feeling very unwell today, & has thrown up a few times (mostly watery stuff). She hasn’t eaten, & she only went out once today. She’s just been lying around quietly, looking pathetic.

  4. Tomorrow begins five straight days of babysitting Little Guy, from 6:30am to about 4pm each day, while Nightingale is in training for the rehab wing. Prayers for patience, for both Chickadee & me, appreciated.

  6. I also am not feeling well and can’t figure out why. Nothing I ate, though it seems like that.
    Had to come home from church and have someone else collect the offering.

  7. Woke up feeling newly stressed about the house (probably didn’t help that the foundation report arrived late last night after I went to bed and it was the first thing I saw this morning). And now I’m worried that fixing the leak (which has to be done first) will be a bigger deal than I originally thought.

    This is beginning to feel like a whole long rabbit trail away from the windows which were my concern only a week ago and still need to be addressed.

    Getting the new roof was easy compared to all of this.

    I may send the foundation report to my cousin, see if he has any thoughts.

    Inspector yesterday didn’t seem to act like it was a huge deal, but it kind of feels like one to me this morning. On the plus side, this should be the most serious of what’s left to deal with, the potential surprise element that I kind of always knew was lurking just below the surface, no pun intended.

    I wish I could just call the landlord. But that would be me.

    I’ll feel better after a shower. But it’ll have to be a short one. Now it makes me nervous knowing about that leak every time the bathroom water is running.

    Ok, breathe, breathe.

  8. Thanks for the prayers for Heidi. She seems to be feeling somewhat better. She did throw up some more this morning, & had some diarrhea last night (yay for puppy pads). She hasn’t eaten any of her food yet, but she is a bit perkier (relatively speaking) than she was yesterday, & doesn’t look quite so pathetic (just a little pathetic).

  9. Donna – Sometimes Hubby gets fed up with all that is involved in owning a home, & thinks apartment living sounds better. I’ve thought of a condominium as a kind of halfway thing between the two.

  10. NancyJill – Heidi is six & a half. I guess that makes her middle-aged for a dog. But she’s still a puppy to us.

    School (kindergarten again) starts on September 1.

  11. Karen, I have never lived in an apartment as an adult. But I can’t imagine how apartment living could be better. In an apartment, you have close neighbors. You depend on someone else to fix whatever is broke. You are likely to get someone else’s vermin, no matter how hard you try. You can’t usually select your décor.
    I wouldn’t want to rent an apartment if I didn’t have to.

    A condo would be much better, but not as good as a detached house. It does reduce the amount of work. Elvera’s sister sold their house and bought a condo. They like it.

  12. I spent many years in apartments and it was fine. A condo would probably be better, but then you have those HOA fees which can be horrendous & can keep going up (not to mention pushy board members — my real estate guy, when I was looking at one such community (newly built town homes), told me don’t bother if you want to have dogs, they’ll make your life miserable). Later someone also said they were poorly built, not like the older homes that were of much better quality.

    That said, my real estate pal at the dog park keeps suggesting I may have much more work to do than I think on this foundation (as in redoing the driveway which inspection gal said was NOT related to what was going on with the house sill plate), so I’m going to stop talking to him for now. I can only do what I can do. Depending on the estimates, i’ll do what I can and that’s all I can do. He’s the one who thought I should replace all my windows, too.

    Argh.

  13. Ok, heard back from the inspector who says driveway is NOT connected to the foundation — so as long as that’s not urgent (structurally), I’m going to let that go for now.

  14. That’s what ran into during those years I was renting out my mom’s house, Jo.

    Late rent, split payments (half now, half in 2 more weeks). Frustrating and also stressful.

  15. it is Monday morning here. Pray that this stomach upset is over. I saw some mold in the cheese I added to my eggs and am wondering if that is what caused the problem. If so, I will find out in an hour or so. 😦

  16. We lived in an apartment for the first 14 years of our marriage, in a large apartment complex. What was nice about it, compared to home ownership, was that when something broke down, it was repaired or replaced, at no cost to us. The maintenance dept. was good at getting to problems shortly after they were reported, & we didn’t have to worry about snow removal or lawn care.

    But the walls were all stark white, & there was no trim on doors or windows. We did put up strippable borders in each room, which helped a bit, but I grew to almost hate the stark white walls of most apartments. (One apartment I had when I was single had cream-colored walls, which had such a softer, more pleasant look to them.)

    We really do enjoy having our home, especially for having Nightingale & Little Guy with us, & having the yard for him to play in. But sometimes the responsibilities & costs can be discouraging, the costs most especially.

  17. Heidi is still not eating her regular food, or the peanut butter her pills are in, but she has been begging for people food anyway. Dumb dog. 🙂

  18. Friends, would you please pray urgently for the little baby girl of two young friends of mine? Her medical situation is dire. Her name is Samantha, her parents are John and Ellie, and she has a five-year-old sister named Norah.

    Samantha was born in June with a severe condition and has lived in the hospital ever since, hooked up to all kinds of equipment and going through a couple surgeries. She had been making good progress but has taken a turn for the worse in the last couple days.

    Five hours ago her parents posted: “Please pray. Sam is not doing well at all, and they’re basically out of escalation options. She has been stable for the last 20 minutes, but things are very very tenuous right now.” A couple hours later they followed up with, “Still hanging on, still very tenuous. Root issue here is the [pulmonary] hypertension. Still extremely touchy.”

    For those who want medical detail, Samantha has congenital diaphragmatic hernia. Her diaphragm was not completely formed, and her abdominal organs grew up into the chest cavity, severely hindering the development of her heart and lungs. She was diagnosed in utero and was born in a hospital with world-class neonatal care, so everyone was well-prepared before she was born to fight for her life when she arrived.

    Her situation has always been touch and go, two steps forward, one step back, but everyone was encouraged by her progress. She was hooked up to fewer and fewer tubes and wires, taken off the ventilator, and needing less medication.

    Since Friday she has had to go back on the ventilator, and her CO2 levels have been climbing. The pulmonary hypertension that has always been a problem seems much worse right now

    Please pray. Thanks.
