Sara and Ellen keeping you in my prayers. Ellen so sorry that life is so stressful sometimes.

Asking for prayers for my DS. He is very depressed. He is 1n a relationship that seems to be going south. He is very committed. Seems as though she isn't. He has not gotten out of bed for about 18 hrs. That is not like him. He was going to pick me up from work. He called and asked if a co-worker could take me home.

Joan, lifting up your DS, so sorry to hear about him feeling depressed. I pray that he can work through his emotions and feelings. Praying for peace, comfort and for him to feel close to God. Breaking up can be difficult, but try to let him know that although it is sad he will find someone who is perfect for him. God has someone for him. I know it's hard and it's really hard for moms to see our kids hurting. Praying for wisdom and strength for you and your family.

How is your sister and her daughter doing?

Thinking of you and praying for you.

Michele

My Ds still wants to talk to her. I have tried to discuss with him the cons of this type of relationship. He took off work and drove to Missouri to be there for her graduation. He got down there and says she is too ill to see him. So he drove back home. She has called her 4 times in the past hour. I keep telling him that no person that says they care about you treat you like that. I can only pray that he sees the light and soon.
As for my sister... her DD is still having issues. She threw a book and then her backpack and various other things at her mom. I said put her on the phone. Well of course, my niece will not talk to me. I can hear her screaming in the background. "I am 18 I can do what ever I want" Boy, oh boy would I like to have been there.
She is supposed to graduate. She needs to finish up assignments and be at school for a week after school is over. I can't believe that my sister and my BIL are still planning a graduation party for her. She is breaking all the house rules. I pray for them and thank you for asking.
I pray and pray and ask God to take care of the situations. my family needs him. I am well aware that it is His time not mine. Thanks for keeping us in your prayers.

Joan, praying for your son during this very difficult time. Also, for your sister's relationship with her daugther. Life is not easy for sure. You are also in my prayers, Joan that you might have the 'right words' to ease your son's misery.

Joan, thinking of you and your family. I guess they are thinking with all of her issues that maybe the party would make her happy. I understand what your saying, that kind of behavior does not warrant a reward. But it's so hard sometimes to see things clearly when the situation is in our own life sometimes. Praying they get some clarity and wisdom on what to do. Your such a supportive sister she is so lucky to have you. May God keep strengthening you and give you wisdom.

Nicole, how is your niece doing? Any updates thinking and praying for you.

Sara how are you feeling?

Ellen, hoping you ge to rest this weekend and find activities to de-stress!

Cat, enjoy your time with the Missionary, I find the stories so inspiring from missions trips and thinking of the COLE kids this a.m. and saying a prayer.

Barb, how are your family members doing, is DH feeling better and is DD doing better too? Thinking of you and your family.

Nikki, hope all is well by you,

Denise, thinking of you hope all is well

If you could keep Monique in your prayers.

Wishes for a wonderful Saturday.
Michele

Michele- you are right! I don't have to live with her and deal day to day with her issues.
Happy Mother's Day!

Joan, how is your son doing?

I pray that God guides each of your steps and that you are all kept close to him!

Sara wanted me to post that she is needing some prayers. She is having to go pick up Jimmy in Omaha Nebraska. She is needing the prayers for safe travel.

Teri, posted this about her granddaughter, Giana, on one of the old prayer threads and thought to put it here.

Hope you all remember me. I'm the one with the granddaughter that had to have a liver transplant. I just wanted to take a moment to update. She is doing very well. Everything is A-OK. Praise God! Thanks again all for praying for my granddaughter.

Just spoke with Sara and prayed with her. Sure wish I could help her out in someway - shame she is not passing through Pittsburg - we have a nice suite.

Michele- My DS is giving into her excuses. I have told him to let her go. Pray for him to see the light.
Nikki- I am praying for dear Sara and Jimmy. I'm asking God to protect them.

Ladies, I am so upset - DD came home from school and one of her teachers grabbed her and left a mark on her and not just red, but red - puffed and it's gonna bruise. I am so DISGUSTED with our school system. I talked to her principal after school by phone and Institutional DYFS will get involved but please pray I need to meet with them tomorrow morning. I want to show my frustration and concern but not my anger.

Oh my goodness Michele- I have found when I went to school about issues. I would write down everything I wanted to say. I even would make a check list. That way I wouldn't let my emotions ruin the conference. I am so very sorry for your daughter. Please give her a hug for me. She needs that right now. I will pray for you!

Joan thank you because I am back to crying and I did make the list so I didn't get off track and I am not letting anyone talk to her about the incident without me present. I am so over an edge today.

Michele- you are a good mom. She needs your comfort and love right now. Try and rest tonight. It is a very good idea to not let her talk to anyone about the incident without you present. I once brought a trusted friend to the meeting with the principal. It helped me. God speed. Hugs and more hugs

Please, please remember you are a good mother and the Lord is right by your side.

Thank you so much for your and kind words. I hate confrontation and it appears over the last few years I have had more than I care to and just don't understand why. I will try to rest and watch Grey's anatmoy DD knows how much I love her and told me she was inspired that I will go to school with her in the morning and won't allow her to be made to go to homeroom where this teacher is nor be intimidated by them or anyone. I am trying to be open and learn what God wants me to.

Michele- one more thing I learned from experience. Do not leave your list with any one or allow them to make copies. They could later used them against you. I will be praying. Hugs and more hugs

Hi guys! JCI Sorry I havent been on. I guess Im still recovering from that long Trip to retrieve Jimmy. I ended up having to pick him up 40 miles west of Topeka Kansas!!!!! I drove straight thru by my self there. Left here about 4pm in afternoon and arrived there about 7am (8am our time). Then took a 3 hour nap then drove straight thru all the way back. Got caught in the tornadoes they had thru missouri and Illinois! I was never so happy to see my house as I was that day!!!!! Now I am sick, uppper respiratory infection or something. No energy, coughing, sneezing, very sore throat, etc.

Anywho, I hope all is doing well!

Hugs,
Sara

MICHI-- Sorry to hear about your recent issues. I'm a praying for you sista! BTW--Thanks for the help the other day!!!

Sue- I am so glad that God saw the two of you home safe. I am praying that you recover quickly from the upper respiratory problem.
Michele- any news about DD. I hope she can come to terms with all this. Poor thing!

Michelle, I know you will do fine with the school. Just remember to discuss the issues not your feelings. ie: issue one, teachers do not need to be putting their hands on kids in an aggressive way like that...if she needs that kind of intervention, I expect to be called immediately to come to the school. Issue two, child is not intimidated to compete in class work based on this aggression and may interfer with her ability to perform.
issue three: etc. just stick to the facts and the issues and leave the emotions home and you will do fine.

Sara, You need to be taking care of yourself. Have you spoken with your doctors? With that nasty flu bug out there, you cannot be too careful, especially given your history. Praying for all of you today.

I am doing better myself. I have not made paper stuff since our retreat and I miss that, but gardening season calls me! lOL

Sorry I have missed so many prayer needs. I am praying for all and Michele, I feel so bad for what happened to Jenn. Please don't let them sweep this 'under the rug' The laws do not allow a teacher to physically grab a child. Make sure you document everything and if you feel you are being dismissed, ask for a hearing at the school board. It is also good to have witnesses to what is said at the meetings. Joan has good advice.

Praying for Kat's MRI tomorrow, I know it will show good results!
Hugs to all this Sunday morning!

Hi all. Well, how do I start? Nine/ten months ago I began a long journey with two others to plan and execute a fundraiser for a local non profit serving our local community. Much planning, hours in the hundreds, arguements, stress, planning, running all over the county, calls and emails......finally Saturday was the day.......A Day in the Park with LifeSteps! It was over 40 booths of non profits, commercial vendors, all things related to health and wellness....food set ups, entertainment, blood drive, animal adoptions, blood pressure checks, AA, ministries.....coloring contest, raffle for trips, health club memberships and more.

We arrived in the park at 7:30 AM...it was set from 10 - 4. Vendors began setting up including the ministry I work for, trucks, police, fire, animal therapy in place. Game booths and face painters. Looking good, everyone checked in by 9 AM, check!

10 AM....................................the sky opened up! After over nine months our big day rained for six hours!

We are still in shock! We are exhausted!

We cannot believe it is over and ended so badly!

We are trusting there is a reason!

Oh my, what can I say. How awful for all of you after the months of planning etc. to be rained out like that. Perhaps some good will come from this afterall.

Hi Girls, thanks for all the support with Jenn and I have been good with keeping emotion out of it when at the school. Saturday was a total meltdown day I was physically and emotionally exhausted just vegged all day! Then after a late afternoon nap, I went and stamped for the craft fair next Sunday.

Just feel so exhausted I must have made myself really stressed to feel it like that! Jenn did good going off today she is removed from that teachers class and is moved to where she won't have to see her as much.

Praying for each of you and praying for Kat! Praying for great MRI results! Her new puppy has gotten big quick! Adorable.

Hugs,
Michele
