Prayer Requests 6-22-21

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 119:97-112

מ Mem

97 Oh, how I love your law!
    I meditate on it all day long.
98 Your commands are always with me
    and make me wiser than my enemies.
99 I have more insight than all my teachers,
    for I meditate on your statutes.
100 I have more understanding than the elders,
    for I obey your precepts.
101 I have kept my feet from every evil path
    so that I might obey your word.
102 I have not departed from your laws,
    for you yourself have taught me.
103 How sweet are your words to my taste,
    sweeter than honey to my mouth!
104 I gain understanding from your precepts;
    therefore I hate every wrong path.

נ Nun

105 Your word is a lamp for my feet,
    a light on my path.
106 I have taken an oath and confirmed it,
    that I will follow your righteous laws.
107 I have suffered much;
    preserve my life, Lord, according to your word.
108 Accept, Lord, the willing praise of my mouth,
    and teach me your laws.
109 Though I constantly take my life in my hands,
    I will not forget your law.
110 The wicked have set a snare for me,
    but I have not strayed from your precepts.
111 Your statutes are my heritage forever;
    they are the joy of my heart.
112 My heart is set on keeping your decrees
    to the very end.

  1. Back in the ER with BG. Asking for a psych eval as well. There is a lit more going on besides the same ol’ same ol’.
    I made sure they know I am fully aware of everything I’m not one of those parents who is bamboozled by her sweet, innocent angel.

  2. Oh, Kim, praying for insight.

    I’m physically dragging–and have been since the basketball incident. I’m off to meet a friend in 20 minutes for our usual 3.5-mile walk around the lake and then will lead Bible study.

    But, more than anything, I’d really rather be curled up with a book and snoozing.

    Last night, at least, I slept well. The three before . . . not so well. 😦

    No word on the Boy Scout–which I’m taking as good news.

  3. Praying, Kim and Michelle.

    Michelle, did you get a concussion when you fell during that basketball incident? If so, that could at least partially explain any increased fatigue you’re having.

    Requesting prayers for wisdom WRT handling a challenging situation with a piano student, and communicating clearly and compassionately with his mom. Thanks.

  4. No indication of a concussion, in part because I took it on the chin, but they examined me in the ER, checking my jaw, examining my eyes with a flashlight and I didn’t even have a headache. Some concern that with the force, my brain would have “joggled” back and forth, but again, no cognitive issues or other concussion signs.

    My daughter watched me pretty carefully, too. The non-sleeping, or inability to fall asleep is long standing. Fatigue, though, is curious.

    OTOH, I managed to walk the lake without any trouble and teach Bible study. It’s a fairly easy day today before our daughter heads out tomorrow.

  5. Discharged with a plan to address the extreme anxiety. I had already made an appointment for her to have her hair straighten up after she cut it. Shecould not handle it being cut as short as it needed to be cut.
    She has a follow up with the gastroenterologist too.
    G is being very supportive in this.

  6. Posted on Facebook by Pepper Basham regarding the recent death of her brother, the lost hiker:
    “Grief is a strange thing. Unexpected.

    Like working on a writing project and looking over on social media to see a photo of my brother pop up, his smile as big as ever.
    And then, reality hits you all over again. That this loss has REALLY happened.
    So you cry and breathe in and remind your heart of Truth.
    And then you may sit for a while to soak in the quiet or a good song. And then…you do the next thing.

    It’s so strange how grief is a constant wave of reality hitting you. Sometimes knocking you down and pulling you under, sometimes making you stumble, and other times just brushing up against your feet a little. But the sound of it is always there, in the background.

    I know this part of grief lessens. The waves become less powerful and their sound becomes just another noise among the days moving forward, but right now, the crashing sound is still very clear and near.

    I’m so grateful for the God who calms the waves.
    But I’m also grateful for all those memories I can hold to with such sweetness because there are SO many!!! And those keep me from going under too often. That and the awareness that the God who made the sea holds my brother as securely now as He did Dustin’s entire life.

    So I can smile. And be grateful. And daydream about a day when the waves of grief will be no more and faith will be made sight.”
