    I am still in shock and don't know if I am doing this right. I need prayers for my almost 13 year old niece/Goddaughter. Lyssie went to the beach today and while swimming, she cut herself on something in the water. The cut was down to the bone in her leg. I am getting this information 2nd hand from my sister. It is her granddaughter and my Goddaughter. She was taken to the hospital where doctors tried to treat the wound. They somehow determined that (A) they could not completely clean it. (B) They saw a lump which could either...

    In a decision by the U.S. Army Thursday, Capt. Simratpal Singh, a decorated Sikh-American officer and combat veteran, has received a long-term religious accommodation to serve with long hair, a beard, and turban in accordance with his Sikh faith. In December, Singh — a West Point graduate, Army Ranger, and Bronze Star recipient — received a temporary accommodation to serve in the military with his articles of faith intact. In March, a U.S. district judge issues a temporary restraining order against additional non-standard, discriminatory testing. According to The Sikh Coalition, which is representing Singh with The Becket Fund for Religious...

    Please pray for the very sick handmaiden of God, Maxine. She is the wife of my oldest friend from the Army. We were stationed together in Weisbaden back in the 80's. My oldest daughter would crawl up the stairwell to her door to see her at 1 year old. Maxine had a heart attack last Friday and my friend told me today they will take her off the ventilator today. Maxine is a dedicated wife and mother.

    Patriot Update ^ | November 26, 2013 | Benny Huang
    Note: This "Thanksgiving classic" first appeared in 2013 but is well worth a review. American tradition sets aside every fourth Thursday in November as a time for people to thank God for their blessings, eat too much, and toss the football around. Liberals have started a new tradition in recent years that I don’t like nearly as much—pushing their political agenda at the dinner table. In days gone by, civility dictated that politics was not on the menu. But no longer! Liberals now consider Thanksgiving the perfect opportunity to get preachy with their loved ones. The White House-affiliated Organizing for...

Surgery went 'well' but it did not solve the problem, still will not keep anything down. Today they are doing ultrasound, again. Little guy is now 1.5 pounds below his birth weight and still not keeping any food down. Doctors say not to panic, yet. Mom and dad are beside themselves already, and the little one is hooked up to machines, scary....

    A dear church friend (and veteran) was in Washington this week on an Honor Flight to see the WWII memorial and other sights and had a mini-stroke, a second one in his long life. Praise God his escort was a EMT, and they were minutes away from a very good hospital, but prayers, please. He will have to do speech therapy but all limbs are good. I know this will shake him because he has recently recovered from the last one, but again, praise God that he was in exactly the right place to have it treated immediately.
