Trouble and Repentance

Benjamin had a rough day at school today.  He opted to engage in socialization as opposed to working.  On top of that, he spit "drainage" as he put it, which landed on a little GIRL!  :(  It is really bad when your mama is a teacher.  Aint no gettin' away with anything!  After he got his tail put back in its place we cuddled up and talked to Jesus.
Here is their conversation:
"I think I need a hug.  I feel really sorry Jesus for spreading those germs.  I feel really, really bad.  I will see you in church on Sunday and every day in my heart."

I have been a blog stalker of my daughter’s former Sunday School teacher for several months. From that blog, I discovered many others, some from the town in which I live and many from different parts of the state and even other states. I have enjoyed reading the blogs, even if I didn’t know the author. It was interesting to read of remodeled homes, to relive the experiences of mother’s of young children and, in some cases, to share the pain of loss or illnesses of loved ones. Such are the joys of the internet. Another joy of the internet has been reconnecting with old friends from my original hometown, Amarillo Texas and my graduating class (Tascosa HS 1970).
Today, I come out of the background to request your prayers for the son of someone who I have known since elementary school. Marshi’s 24 year old son, Brian Lair was diagnosed with a brain tumor on July 23. He had his first surgery in Dallas on August 7 and although the doctors were unable to completely remove the tumor, the prognosis was optimistic. On August 25, he had to return to the Dallas hospital because his incision had become infested. A second surgery was completed on August 28. On September 2, I received an email from his mom, explaining that Brian was still fighting the infection, with high temperatures, etc. The diagnosis, treatment, and his relationship with God are all detailed on his blog:
He really needs all the prayers anyone can muster. Please keep Brian in your thoughts and prayers and spread the word.
Thank you,
Chan Roark, Dothan AL

Well, I guess you haven't been keeping the right books around the house, Shani. I'll bring over some of my old nursing textbooks on public health and the spreading of germs and such. He can dig into those! :)
Relax. He's gonna do others things that are going to make you wonder what planet he came from. And here's good will the other 2. It's the nature of boys.
Just keep a sense of humor and choose your battles.

Hi Andi,
Boys can really put you through the ringer, can't they? Our 19 year old has us in a valley right now, but I did the same thing you did....hugged him, told him how much I love him and we prayed. God is so good and can heal all these hurts. Praise Him!
