@Rosebud @Defaultxlovee @Survivor3 You are amazing people. Thank you so much for your prayers, encouragement, and beautiful words; they really touched my heart today. Please forgive me - I’m a little low on words this morning. I just hope I can convey how much you all and everyone on this site mean to me as well. I never really expected to find a place where I could talk about both my “secular” healing and my faith. Because they’re so connected, aren’t they?! I’m not used to being able to talk about my pleas to God so freely amongst others. Just this place alone and all of you… even the most resistive pieces of me can’t help but feel hope. Thank you so much for that, more than I can say. ❤️❤️

I’m praying for you all as well - all the things I’ve been reading here, as well as the unspoken prayers you may need. And for anyone who may be reading quietly as well. ❤️

That is so beautiful @AMusingChickadee , thank you. Same to you and all. And I agree, they are connected, for me anyway. Like seperating milk and coffee, it can't be so.

Was thinking, am so thankful re :pup, and timing. Because if we knew about the senior 1st we would have taken her- but also missed pup!!! And I'm not sure my heart could bear praying and worrying every day with another very sick dog, and plus the care, which is ok but the heart-part is awful. I would feel horrified if I was at work and she died or had a seizure etc (very possible). She needs someone there 24/7.

But the pup had a very hard start too, and they literally threw her away. I don't judge them, but she needed a home too. And these have been the sweetest people so far, and tremendous fosters. Very very grateful (and excited! 😄🥰)

It’s so awe-inspiring to be able to see God’s plan come together in puzzle pieces like this. Being able to see how one good thing couldn’t have happened without another bad thing or suffering. It helps me when I currently go through something difficult and hard to understand to think that maybe there is a reason I’m not yet aware of. Like if I can help someone going through something I’ve struggled with before.

I’m so happy that things are working out with getting the pup! It’s hard to think that someone would throw her away. :( I’m going to add the older dog to my prayers for the right fit. ❤️

@Defaultxlovee , maybe thanks from me, and for the Ukranian (and Russian, for that matter) people? For peace. Thank you and hugs for you! 🤗

@AMusingChickadee , thank you so much! Well, I think God can write with crooked lines? So I don't know if a good thing from bad is God's intent, or maybe rather just God-being-God, bringing something good that makes up for the sorrow? If that makes sense? Hugs to you and all as well! (And yes well, pup says 'adoption pending'... so am afraid to hope but am despite myself. 😊 Apparently all of a sudden growing, outgrown her harness, wondering if she's eating out of excitement and nerves, like me? 😀🤣

I felt kind of ashamed of the above, and hopefully still now a go, corrected work error. In my defense I did try to remember dog's name they gave her means God's promise. I thought what is God's promise? And I could only remember Trust; Hope; Do not be afraid; I will not abandone you. And, ~will not die but have everlasting life. (Pup was born on St. Lazarus' day, by chance). Same day I went back to church a long time ago, did not know that was the designated ~Saint of the day.

Hi @Rosebud ❤️❤️

Please try not to feel ashamed at anything you’ve written here. This is a safe place, and it makes me happy that you reached out here when you needed some prayer and understanding! I’m so sorry I’m just seeing this today. I hope maybe it helps in some way even today to hear that I completely understand why you had that moment of disappointment and sadness. I think it’s natural when we’re really excited and hopeful to feel discouraged, upset, confusing, and so many other feelings when things look like they may not pan out. I think it’s really awesome what you wrote about remembering God’s promise! I think our shame tends to look at things in hindsight, so we tell ourselves we should never lose hope or doubt… but in that moment - even with our faith - normal human emotions can still affect us. We try to emulate Jesus, but we are still human.

I pray things do go more smoothly with the rest of the process. You have been in my thoughts!

I have a friend who is in really poor health who is trying to take care of his elderly mother and having a very rough go of it. Please pray for him and his mother. I pray they receive the help and care that they need to lighten their loads and end their struggles so that they may rest and enjoy better health.
Praying now Lionheart :( much love to the family and friends.


My request: that I make it to Wednesday w/ out much of a hitch if possible. I'm withdrawing meds which is good but what's bad is my body is repulsed by the tapering amount. Need wisdom. So I'm basically talking nothing now of a TCA. I'm okay. Just need prayer thank you.
