Procedure Being Performed - 11:30am EST

Mom is having the procedure done as we speak.  Sharon felt better after talking with the doctor... oh, and his name... Dr. Shidrach.  She and Dad laughed when they heard his name because it was so close to Shadrach.  I think God knows exactly where we are today.
Anyway, Dr. S told them th…

My brother-in-law called this morning to let me know that they just heard from a nurse at the hospital and Mom had some bleeding during the night.  Now (as we first suspected) the diagnosis of bleeding from the polyps being removed is being questioned.  We do not know how much she was bleeding, but …

WWJD - What WILL Jesus Do

What if Jesus were President or better yet... leader of the entire world?  It makes you really stop and think, doesn't it?  How would things change?   For starters, think about the things that effect your everyday life... say, like television.  What would be on TV?  Do you think there would be smutt…
