I could use some prayer, reminding me to turn things over to God. I am feeling overwhelmed and stressed, not able to pinpoint one thing just lots going on but to the point where it is affecting me, my stomach not being happy more often than not .

I know God is watching over me but for some reason just can't let go of the little things here. I had been on anxiety medication for a few years and off now for 4 months and I know my body has to adjust again.
Thanks for listening.

Praying for you Rae.

Thanks Deb for the answer! You rock!

Thank you all for your prayers!!! I am feeling better today, good old keeping God first!! Also spent the whole day out in the field with hubby as he was planting winter wheat and etc and I had it all with me in the truck. The good part I got to read a couple Guidepost magazines!! Almost caught up on them now.

Thanks be to GOD!!!

Darlene, you e-mail came at the most opportune time.

Thank you all for your prayers. Although, the stress is affecting my eye sight right now. Thank you for praying during such a difficult time for our family.

Ladies,
Haven't been on the forums too faithfully lately. School has started up and I have my lil gdaughter each day.
May I ask for prayers?

Prayers for my small hometown, family,friends?

A teacher, Christian leader of the community has confessed to abusing boys going back even 30 years!
He was youth group leader to all 4 of my kids, their Sun school teacher and public school teacher to 2 of my gkids.
Hearts are absolutely broken and it's going to get worse as more info comes out. Thus far most of us do feel and believe our adult kids when they seem as hurt and stunned as we all are.
Everyone is just sick inside and trying as best as we all can to process this.

Prayers would be so very appreciated!

My thoughts and prayers are always with you ladies even if I can't post as often as I would like!

Farmgirl hugs,
Linda

Country at Heart

Oh how sad, the poor kids that were abused through the years.. Makes you wonder what happened to make a person want to do that. It is so twisted and wrong...They have caused so many children fear and a life that wasn't normal again.. It is so sad...
Was he caught? Is that why he confessed? It is bad enough it happens at school where they have access to all these children but at church too. Society is at fault too because they ignored things like this for so long...
He definitely needs our prayer because he is going to need it to face what he has done and to face his own family as well as all the victims.
His family will suffer from his actions...They really need prayer during this awful time as well.
My prayers are with you also and your little granddaughter and I hope you get to have a wonderful time with her. How old is she? Play and enjoy grandmom...
Blessings

Nobody saw this coming at all!
His family is in hiding as they have been threatened.
Yes, a young man he hurt just a week ago was going to tell so he confessed to his wife, Pastor and a close friend...then he turned himself in and pleaded guilty during arraignment.
It's all still unfolding as he tells police everything.
This was a man respected and loved, so it's just hard to soak in. He definitely had a very dark side that nobody but his victims knew about.
Thank you all so much for your prayers!

My youngest gdaughter is 4. She is a joy! Sharp as a whip. And keeps us all on our toes!! He he he
She starts pre-k this Mon.

Kristina and Rae- prayers for you both!

Farmgirl hugs,

Thank you everyone!
Talked with my daughter yesterday. The town is just in a mess for now. Anger, pain, hurt as everyone tries to just process it all.
Those of us now out of state struggling thru the same emotions.
Just so hard to understand. And very scary to realize we really don't know people at all.
I am SO thankful that HE does not change, is our constant and sees us thru all things- good and bad!

Farmgirl hugs,
Linda

Thanks for asking Darlene. I took a much needed 2 night camping trip to give myself, and my hubby a mental break. However, today it's been rough. I guess it's possible for an 18 year-old daughter to disrupt a household, even after she moves out. It's been exhausting mentally and physically.

My prayers are with all of you hoping He is making his presence known in the lives that are afflicted and struggle on this day. I also ask for prayers for my FIL who had a tumor removed from his lung today and the lung collapsed. Hoping that he has a speedy recovery and the results will come back that the tumor is non-cancerous.

Hey Ladies,

My grandfather has been transferred to home-based hospice care. We don't expect him to be with us much longer and I have been praying for peace and an easing of pain for him. And also many prayers or my grandmother who has been married to him for over 60 years. We are not sure how she will do without him, especially since she does not drive and she will be the only one left of that generation, so she will likely move in with one of my aunts or uncles. It's a big transition for her in so many ways above and beyond the grieving.

My father is doing pretty well with the chemo from all I've heard. We've had some nice phone conversations lately and I will be seeing my parents at the end of September, if I do not see them for my grandfather's funeral first. Keep him in your prayers, but also praise for things going pretty well so far.

One of my good friends from college recently lost her grandfather as well and her father was also recently diagnosed with cancer - so we seem to be in the same boat.

I have a personal ongoing request for my future spouse. Today was one of those days where that family sized hole in my heart was especially achy with that dull empty pain of still being alone . . . I want so badly to give my love to a husband and children of my own, and this was one of those days where I wept again for not having that and feeling a little hopeless that I never will . . . (even though I know that's probably not true and it may well be Satan whispering lies to me to make me bitter towards God, and not trusting in Him) . . . So please pray for me to find peace and patience as I continue to wait - and also for my spouse to be found soon. (Whatever soon means, right? Ha!)

It's not all bad news though - I have some big praises for the myriad little things I'm thankful for today: For the rain storms this evening, so needed in this drought; for the big bottle of Mexican vanilla that my mom sent me and I can't wait to put to use!; for my diploma coming in the mail today - I have a masters! Yeah!; For my job which makes me smile every day and the joy of helping children and families grow to love reading and learning together.

Thanks ladies for being a place where I can come and share these things on my heart!

***---***---***---***---***---***---***---***---***---***---***---***---***---***
I'm just a 20-something girl making a home for me (and my dog) and waiting for the family to fill it!

Amy
I am sending up prayers for your grandfather and your grandmother as they go through this new transition of their life and that your grandfather will go in a peaceful way and that your grandmother will be able to adjust to it soon.
Prayers for your father and his chemo and that he will feel better soon, and that he keeps upbeat about everything which will help him heal better.
Prayers for for your friend and her father who will just start the process of beating the cancer. Lord give them strength to get through this.
Prayers that God will find you the husband he wants you to have and the many children He probably will give you after you patiently wait for him to do what you ask of Him.
Thank you Lord for Amy finishing College and getting her Masters, Thanks for mom for cares for Amy and loves her, help her in her daily life and be with Amy at her job.
Thank you Jesus...Amen.
hugs
darlene

My prayers go out to you Amy. I hope you find peace and strength while you go through everything in the next couple of months. I hope that he sends a Mr. Wonderful into your life soon. As I keep telling my son, when the time is right the opportunity will present itself, just keep an eye out for when it arrives.
My father in law has been diagnosed with Lung Cancer so please keep Ken in your prayers, as well as my husband Kevin as he deals with his emotions with this news. We are hoping now that he does get the job in Fort Worth now so that he is able to be close to his father. Its in God's hands now.
