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.
