    I have been reading on here for quite awhile, but only posted a few times to someone else's post, BUT THIS TIME, I REALLY DO NEED PRAYERS OF MY OWN:
    Let me try to explain a little:

    I have a Mother in a NH that is dying, but still hanging on, and it pains me so much to see her like this - I just wish she could pass on and end the suffering......
    My son just left for college, so naturally, I have that "empty nest syndrome", and I cry a lot - even though he is not that far away.......

    I have some illnesses of my own, that are getting worse, probably due to all my stress lately - I suffer from Fibro, Autoimmune Hepatitis, Systemic Scleroderma w/CREST, Anxiety/Depression/Panic Disorder & agoraphobia,Arthritis, and the list goes on......

    My husband just lost his job back on July 9 without any warning - he did find another one approx. Aug. 2, but the pay is not very good at all - some weeks, he brings home less than what his unemployment check was - which now we also have no health insurance for another two months......

    It seems like everything & anything is going wrong, my van just needed fixing - costing $1,083.00 which of course we had to loan from hubbys Mom.....

    It seems like we never get a break anywhere - our bad luck really started in about 2000 and here we are 4yrs later, and it's still going strong, our bad luck.........

    I know they say the Dear Lord never gives us more than we can handle, but I'm beginning to doubt that, I'm at my wits end...........

    Just say a little prayer that things will start to turn around and soon before it's too late...

    I want to "Thank" everyone in advance.........
    I will continue to pray for all of you.........
    Have a great Labor Day.........Love, Donna

    I can relate to the never ending bad luck that you are going through...I sometimes wonder too if we aren't given more than we can handle.

    This is the first time I have posted here, since I follow different paths than most on this board. However, I still have Christian beliefs, and will keep you close in my prayers.

    Blessings to you,
    Donna

    My heart goes out to you, I'm so sorry that you are going through so much. I know that all of this is very stressful for you.

    I will certainly be praying that things will turn around for you soon.

    Donna, I will pray for you...

    Dear Lord, Please help Donna today. Loneliness and frustration overpower her and she is in pain. With the Patience of Job she has endured the last few years, and now asks for things to turn around for her and her family. Grant her this request, and make her strong. Help her cope with her mother's situation, and bring her peace. Amen.

    Donna,

    I will be praying for you. I wish I had some words of comfort but I can
    say that God is with us every step of
    the way and will give us the strength
    to get thru these times..

    Hope to catch you soon so we can catch up as I feel we share so much.
    Especially the NH and our Mom's.

    Much Love and Prayers,
    greatgran

    seems like there are times when you can't stand any more. I listened to a sermon the other day entitled......"Lord give me patience, and give it to me now". I think I'm that way. I pray and ask God for something and then don't want to wait for his timing. I know you have anxiety, etc. etc. and this is sure not helping you. I also suffer from those so I know what you're feeling. When things get too hard for me to stand I have to remind myself....."and this too shall pass" and in my mind I wrap up all my troubles and hand them up to God and ask him to take care of them. At that point I feel the load lighten and then I can relax.

    I will pray for you that he brings his peace to you and guides your steps.
