Blessings For A Dying Friend
May your days and nights be filled with peace,
And may those you love be near.
May the solace of that closeness
Banish any hint of fear.
May the joy you've brought to others
Fill your soul now with that light,
And the memories of happy times
Fill your dreams through darkest night.
For you've lent your strength to many.
You've upheld us in our strife.
Now let those of us who love you
Let you know just how your life
Has been the brightest beacon
For you've shown us how to bear
With great dignity and courage
Both the bad times and the fair.
As a mentor and a leader
You have always been our guide.
As a friend there's been none better.
May you know all this with pride.
All our prayers and thoughts are with you.
May you feel their soothing grace.
May our care and loving hold you
Here within that sacred space.
And may God then grant you courage
When the time to fight is o'er
And be waiting for you smiling,
When you reach his lofty door.
For you'll be borne by angels
That our Lord has sent for you
And in wholeness be rewarded
All your pain will then be through.

Good to see you all! I made it through my tests without a brain tumor--fibromyalgia is a horrid disease because it mimics so many other conditions.That's great news. I praise the Lord with you.
The doctors were pretty thorough in coming up with a way to make glasses that refract light differently so hopefully I can see better. It rests in God's hands to see what works and what doesn't. He is faithful to us at all times, praise His name!You've got the right attitude and you are keeping it real just like your screen name says. He is faithful even when we aren't.
I am asking for prayer for my dear friends Andrea (Andy) and Bill. Bill has cancer and is in the final stages; he's at home with hospice care. Andy was my last boss and Bill worked there as well, so these wonderful people did so much for me throughout my illness to keep me working as long as I possibly could. I couldn't find a card to send that said what I wanted to say, but I found this Prayer for a Dying Friend and thought I'd share it here as well.I will pray for Andy and Bill. That's tough news to bear. I sure hope Bill is a Christian. May our Heavenly Father bless him and keep him in His arms.
so great to hear your praise reports and know that you are in my threadLOL, I meant to say prayers! :-)
