I am so awed and have good tears I actually got out of bed to write you. I’m so so happy to hear this. Yes support and prayer of others is so powerful. When we turn to others even in a setting like this it says we are worth healing and prayers from total strangers. How great is it that tonight I spoke to a large church women’s group on the heart and what it needs;spiritually, emotionally, etc. Please do keep updating; those of us who have major health issues have the compassion that others don’t have in the same way. Sending you joy and good prayers for continued strength : )
Any notes to Patty are to and for her only – they are written lovingly and specifically to her and for her. Anyone else who wishes to enjoy them in whatever way is meaningful to them is absolutely free to do so. She writes specifically of her priest, God, and of church, so I joyfully meet her on that level. This country was built on “In God We Trust,” thus many Jews and Muslims who know God’s love express it to others; if one of them mentions God in their fears or concerns here, I will also, period.
My understanding is that this incredible forum is for everyone, and that is what makes it what it is.
Of note is the topic of this incredible hospital, National Jewish, vs. National Atheist, that likely does not turn away anyone. How wonderful of Terri to share this! I will not cease my prayers, privately or publicly that Patty will excitedly go there, at no cost to her. She shared her situation, fears, and circumstances. She is all I need to remember in her needs. If one reads closely, she also mentions her son who has served 3x in Iraq. If there is some law in the Forum regarding ‘Patty or anyone mentioning church or God, or accepting or needing prayer, then it would be a dark day indeed, as many of those who are scared, rejoice at healing, value prayer by TOTAL loving strangers, mention church, or lung cancer survivors at their church, or suddenly request prayer would be silenced.
Interesting that any posts in this thread by Patty, me, or others mentioning God, have plenty of likes.
Now, back to my loving concern for Patty, who has shown such courage at baring so much vulnerability, and received a flood of powerful advisement, support, encouragement, as well as raised wonderful education from so many. I am awed at what I have learned.
As a retired veteran who presented, spoke for, and served this country, and who would die in a heartbeat for the freedom of this country, Semper Fi, God Bless America, and may God Bless and Protect Patty’s son, all who have served, and everyone here who wishes it.
Patty is welcome to email me privately anytime, and I will lovingly respond in any Christian way she needs or asks.
Love it Terri! Our own health and what we choose to think is so connected to our own decisions about what we are worth and how much we value ourselves. And often a health crisis brings the beautiful opportunity to improve, elevate, and decide what our level of self-love and self-acceptance are! Overthinking and sentencing do not speak to healing – we must move past the fear – but considering beautiful direction like this and pursuing it IS a part of our health and healing mentality. I never mind if someone disagrees with this belief, but I see marvelous people like you and others prove the power of positive thinking and action. Often, what we decide is exactly what comes to pass! Anything truly is possible, and where there is a will, there is ALWAYS a way! : ) Thank you for the great education – I looked at their site and history from your link last night! You are a gift. JM : )
