I was so looking for this around 6am on Friday, but things have improved. Dad is having a rough week healthwise, so I would appreciate prayers for him, me, & any medical professionals involved. Thanks. :)

You have to add the emoji keyboard in Settings. Then use the plain red heart. Most symbols don't work.

I have the emoji keyboard, but I have been using other hearts. My mistake. Thanks. ❤️

My 25 year old daughter just had an upheaval in both her personal and professional life and is very disillusioned right now. My heart hurts for her .

My grandfather just got the official diagnosis- he has cancer everywhere. Both lymphoma and adenocarcinoma in the bone, liver, pancreas, around the spinal cord. Chemo won't work and radiation can only do so much. He's strong, but not that strong.

To help prevent me from going to summer school. I know it's a small problem but it's consuming me.

Praying! But just a note - summer school can be a blessing in disguise. If I gadn't had to repeat a semester of English due to a term paper disaster, I would never have taken that one-semester Shakespeare class with a better teacher who made me fall

Don't take this wrong, hon, but it's about time the devil showed up. By that I mean that all I've known about your life has been absolutely perfect, so it's only logical that the enemy would attack you, and God allows it because (A) He knows you have

It's true, pw. With us, whatcha see is pretty much whatcha get. A bunch of imperfect but very sincere Christians who believe in God because we've encountered Him personally, and He's changed our lives, very much for the better. We do believe in

I appreciate your concern and prayers. We are accepting a small loan from a grandparent, to save us from eviction. I'll be signing a new contract on Tuesday. I also picked up a 2nd job and interviewed for another. We'll be praying for you as well.

Sounds good, Jason. I was getting ready to suggest a booming area like here in Odessa and Midland TX. Lowest unemployment in Texas, and I think the US too. But if you're happy in the frozen north (ha ha!), then we just need to ask God to prosper
