Earlier this evening, I published what was intended to be a funny and whiney post about all that I've imagined ails me.
Then I opened my e-mail to several messages from our parish prayer tree requesting prayer for people who are experiencing real suffering and even death. Can you say "perspective?"
So please, take a moment if you will to pray for all those who are waging battle against sickness, disease and tragedy. I can suck it up for them.
And if you know of someone in need of those prayers, please feel free to leave a request for their needs so we can all keep them in our prayers.
