If you don't believe in love....

If you think the Internet is foolishness, or if you think humankind is jaded, please look at the comments on my last entry.  Some folks commented because Sister Sugar sent them.  She has a mission on this earth, and she is fulfilling it.  She was the one who sent so many folks to my journal to sympathize with me when I lost my Mandy-dog.

You might think such comments are meaningless.  But when you are scared or hurting, every comment and every prayer means something special.

If you can't do anything else beyond extending your sympathy and compassion to a friend, sometimes that may all that's needed.

It matters.  Really it does.  Do it.

You and your husband matter. You really do to all of us. Try to stay calm and know that everyone is really praying with love and care.

Donna its ok to be frightened, afraid, helpless, and whatever other emotions you may be feeling now. That is human. We all react in our own way to situations that involve our loved ones. Love is a Powerful emotion and I am sure Cliff is knowing that right now that he is loved by many. Prayers are going up constantly for the best medical care for him and strength for all of you. We are your friends lean on us in whatever way you need to. We do care and are praying.

I know just how those comments mean something.  I sure do.  Everyone one of mine is special too.  ESPECIALLY when I am hurting, upset, or even sharing a special joy.

I'm so sorry and I will pray for Cliff.

cyandfayedavis said...

Again I can't sleep...I'm praying you are.  You will need your strength for the waiting.  It's as though I'm living this all over again.  I waited part of the time outside the operating room door.  God bless.

I believe in the power of love AND prayer, and the fact that this place comes together as one, when the need arises.  Sister Sugar did the same thing for me, with my Dan, and she is a our resident Angel here in in JLand.

You and Cliff have been on my mind all day long, Mosie.  I will continue to pray for his returned good health, until I hear from you!  

I pray that God keeps you strong and healthy during all this, as I know this is not easy on you..

Praying for you through his blessed name...

Jackie

You've been on my mind for days now.  Not Cliff so much -- I KNOW he'll be fine.  But you are alone there on the farm and it must be scary.  I love you, Mosie.

The power of the internet brought us together, my dear friend.

I'm still with you today and so are the Northern Virginia prayer warriors.  Keep us posted.

God is in control.

Yes, it does matter and we are so blessed to have folks like that in this community.  I'll be saying a special prayer at 7am this morning for Cliff.

Mosie, There was no need to mention me, I'm only being a friend, a neighbor, doing what God wants me too, &  what you would do for me! Thank you for your warm words, I appreciate knowing I made a tiny difference!!! ;0)
I will be in prayer at 7:00 this am for Cliff, with faith that all will be ok.
Blessings dear,
SUGAR
(I meant what I said, when I said let me know if I can help)

Before the enternet, I was assured people around the world were praying for my brother. I'm sure they worked. He;s still with me. I still have his love and sprit to remind me of ur parents when he had been given a one in ten chace of survial. For in all those prayers offered for his soul, I was not alone knowing he was going to live, because that was the only way I could see him. Alive! I may not always like him; but, he has my love always. May thee both be as blessed. I'm doning my best.

Hi Mosie wanted to let you know my prayers are with you and your husband. Jackie over at "waiting to exhale" gave us the heads up on your situation. Keep the faith..........Robin

madcobug said...

Thank the Good Lord that Cliff came through his surgery fine. May his healing be quick and may your strength keep being strong. Helen

blondepennierae said...

Hi Mosie,  Sorry I am so late getting to you, but haven't been feeling well so haven't been journaling very frequently.  I read in Sugar that he made it through surgery and is doing fine so far.  My prayers are with you and him as you go through the next few days.  Love and God heal ... you have an abundance of both.  Prayers, Pennie

mutualaide said...

You are so right.  One kind word, thought, phrase or simple prayer is all it takes to know that you are cared for during the tough times.

Dear Donna
I am thankful to hear the heart surgery went fine for Cliff.

I had triple bypass 3 years ago at 58 so know what Cliff is going thru
and my husband of over 40 years knows what You are going thru.

Along with so many others I have been praying for you Both all day.

Hi,

I read about your husband's surgery in Jackie's journal and wanted to stop by and tell you I've got him and your family in my thoughts and prayers that the surgery goes well and he is soon feeling better.

Take Care
