Default The Autumn/Winter Joys, Concerns and Prayer Circle 2014

Summer comes to an end, the leaves turn to a treasure trove of copper and gold and bronze and the nights grow cooler, urging us to gather by the fire....

If you need a prayer/good thought/healing energy(or whatever term your faith or tradition embraces) put it here.

If you have a joy that you want to briefly share, here's the spot.

This is for all denominations and traditions.
There will be no debating of whose truth is "right".
This won't be a good place for asking questions about the details of one another's religious/spiritual practices, just a cozy, softly lit spot for dropping your cares and counting your blessings.




"The leaves are falling, falling as from way off,
as though far gardens withered in the skies;
they are falling with denying gestures.
And in the nights the heavy earth is falling
from all the stars down into loneliness.
We all are falling. This hand falls.
And look at others: it is in them all.
And yet there is one who holds this falling
endlessly gently in his hands."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson, Autumn

I have a special trip planned this season to see my LO. It's my longest road trip (OR-CA) as a driver, ever. To add icing to this cake: he's meeting my parents for the first time. My nerves are piling up!

I am praying our trip is safe. That our visit is secure. I pray that the love I experience from the special people in my life shines brightly that day and that they see in each other what I see in them.

My mom, as some of you might already know, has begun a pretty intense 12 week drug regimen- It's proving to be a challenge for both of us and I'd be grateful for whatever prayers for fortitude and healing you can send our way.

You ladies have my thoughts and prayers! *hugs*

I'm in between jobs right now and trying to figure out the direction I'd like my life to go. It's a challenge, but I've got some great people in my life and I'm so thankful for them! I'm taking one day at a time.

Default DON'T ask much

I really don't ask much from my PTO family, BUT, My son has sent in his 2 year review! All I'm asking is for prayers they accept it and he will get to come home and finish raising his daughter. Thank in advance!! That would bring him home May 10th 2015!

I need your prayers, healing thoughts and good vibes... my mom was admitted to the hospital last night with profound muscle weakness and breathing trouble. They were able to rule out some of the scarier possibilities like stroke, heart attack and embolism, but have not yet been able to figure out what IS going on.....

And now, I hate even typing this.... my mother has now entered the hospice program.
We are making this journey here at home and, though I am heartsick at the idea of learning how to exist without her, I am intensely grateful to have the chance to do these last things for her, to return to her a small portion of the care and nurture she has lavished upon me the last 46 years....I would ask all of you for prayers that her remaining time be as comfortable as possible and that when the time comes, the transition from this world into whatever lies ahead is a gentle one.

My mother, Merrie, passed away jut before 1 o'clock Friday (Dec.12) morning. Her departure was peaceful, slipping away quietly between the first and second verse of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah. She'll be missed terribly but I am grateful that she's now beyond pain.

Her spirit will continue to bless your life, LeBeau. (And what a quiet announcement of her passing.)

Peace to you.
