|Oswald Chambers (1874-1917)|
The place for the comforter is not that of one who preaches, but of the comrade who says nothing, but prays to God about the matter. The biggest thing you can do for those who are suffering is not to talk platitudes, not to ask questions, but to get into contact with God, and the “greater works” will be done by prayer (see John 14:12–13).

Ah, prayer, the Fatalists answer to everything.ReplyDelete
On the contrary, Jersey, for those who are fortunate enough to believe it is the source and the soul of OPTIMISM and nourishment that enables us to endure challenges, "dry spells," and hardship.Delete
I hope, despite all the ill will, acrimony and incessant fear-mongering from the enemedia reflected exponentially here in the blogosphere every day, that you and yours have a joyful Christmas Season. Lots of fun, prosperity, and good health in the coming New Year.
My dear friend,ReplyDelete
I am so sorry for my absence. Wednesday, my dearest friend died. To others, she was a cat. To me, she was my very soul.
I am grieving the loss of my Faerie Princess. I think this may take a while.
Hoping you are well.
I am so sorry to hear about your Princess, Andie. I know how you must feel. In January it will be a full year since my Priscilla, "The Little Gray One," had to be put to sleep because of inoperable cancer which emerged very suddenly. She was only ten. I have not gotten over it yet, but my other two need me, and I love them too, so life must go on as long as it can for each of us.Delete
At any rate I am very glad to know YOU are alive and well. I worry about you when you absent yourself from the blogging community for long periods.
Stay well, and have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS! <);-)>
