K E E P    P R A Y I N G !
You may remember that today I went to Mayo Clinic for my check-up a week
after eye surgery.  Dr. Pulido was going to put an injection in the eye
today, but the pressure was 44 in that eye.  It was 22 the day after
surgery.  He said it's because the drains are clogged up. He said the eye
had cleared a bit and he was able to see a little better into the eye today.
He gave me three more kinds of drops and a capsule to take twice a day.  He
started some of those things and had me wait until 3:45 this afternoon to
make sure the pressure would drop.  By that time the pressure had dropped to
27. I have to go back next Friday.  He may put in the injection then.  He
doesn't seem very worried about me going on the Pilgrimage to Israel.  He
*did* say he might have to come along with me. (-:  Thanks for your many
prayers on my behalf.  Don't stop now!

your situation changed. Gary e-mailed me today to let me know he now has two

"I do not do the good I want, but I do the evil I do not want."  ~ Romans

"You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky; why do
you not know how to interpret the present time?" ~ Luke 12:54-59

Like Paul, we often do the wrong we don't want to do, not the good we want
to do. Christ is the one who shows us who we are.  Our union with Him helps
us look realistically at what is happening, interpret it faithfully and
remain obedient to His call in our lives. We can rely on Christ to bring us

I pray that I may strive to good and to avoid evil. I pray that I may rely
on Christ to help me in my journey through this world to God.

We pray for unity in our country and that we may build a Culture of Life. We
pray for the safety of our troops, their safe return and their families at
home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the courage
and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!

May God Bless you and those you love, and keep you safe!
