If you don't know what belongs in here, I'm sure we can find a few willing folks to pray for your soul.

Alo. I'm currently in the hospital 9 hours a week, as a patient. I appreciate any prayers that you are able to give, especially prayers of strength.

I'm not so patiently waiting to find out more information about a job opportunity I first learned about over a week ago. No luck getting responses to my emails or phone calls. They sounds motivated to get me in for an interview but now I can't find anyone willing to follow-up.

So.......... as some of you who are friends with me on FB know, our family built an addition on the side of our house so we can care for our grandparents (my grandma has Parkinsons and my grandpa's anti-rejection meds mess with his system). It got finished a couple weeks ago and they've been living comfortably with us for about two weeks. That's the good part.

So the final inspector came today to inspect the addition for the last time. First he was ticked off that they had moved in before the final inspection. There's no rule about it, and no certificate of occupancy is required for an addition. The punch line? HE SAYS that we're not zoned for multi-family dwellings. 1. We're a single family. 2. We are zoned for buildings with live-in help... o.O 3. HE'S NOT A FREAKING ZONING INSPECTOR.

The zoning inspector is coming tomorrow to figure stuff out. We were SO close to paying off the mortgage, and now the new building is totally done. The building plans were govt. approved and everything..... So now we don't know what's going to happen tomorrow. My dad is rightly pretty mad and worried out of his brain, my mom is going to lose it and my little brother has not been helping. So just prayer that everyone will be able to keep it together and that we can keep the building we payed for... and our grandparents won't have to move somewhere they can't afford.

Sounds like your dad jumped through all the hoops he was supposed to. It sounds more like the guy that came out today didn't know what he was talking about.

I pray that things get smoothed out easily for you guys. Keep us posted, 'nana.

We're good. Smile This inspector was nice, and he came, and then went away. So that's the last time the government will be here about the addition.

Father,
Hold Moon in your arms tonight. Let your grace and your peace overwhelm the situation.
Let these afflictions be eclipsed by glory.

Amen

Friends, please pray for me right now. I'm having a really tough time with adjusting here to my old group of friends. Its very different and I feel so disconnected and like I don't know anything about what's going on. Tonight they were talking so fast and over so many subjects I couldn't even keep up.

The truth is that on Sunday some things happened that made me feel really alienated and I don't think I let go of it. I came to youth group with baggage and fear of that happening again or fear of I don't even know what. Its just disheartening for me because this is the only place where I've always felt like home and now I don't really. I feel like if I can't come back here and take a rest from all the "newness" and all the awkwardness of trying to build relationships, where can I come back to?

And the suckiest part of all is that all of the things that have been good for my friends have been kind of bad for me. The youth group has grown tons. That's a really good thing, but for me it means that the dynamics are totally different and I feel like a stranger sometimes. I mean, its literally that for every friend I had, they've added on five new people. People have moved on with their lives since they left, which is great for them to build new friendships and do new things, but for me it means I'm disconnected from what they're doing and what's going on. I don't know if its them, me, or both but I even feel afraid to ask my best friend if she wants to get together for fear of rejection and at the same time I spend all day hoping that she'll call or facebook to get together, which makes me feel pathetic.

Wait, there's still another suckiest part. I don't feel like I have enough time to reconnect with the youth group here, to make those new friends, and to finally get to the point where I do know what everyone's talking about and where I do assimilate again. I'm probably only going to be here for another three months and then maybe another month or two after that before I'm off to yet another new place in a location as of yet unknown to me. Part of me wants to hole up and not get close to anyone again, but I know that's not healthy at all.

And...I don't think there's anything anyone can say to that. At least no one I've talked to has had anything yet but, "I'll pray for you" and that's really what I need right now, which is why I'm here. So...please pray for me that God would make the purpose for me being here known to me and that I would be able to let go of my fears and hurts. I think there's also a spiritual battle going on here, that I really can't forget just because I'm in America, and let me tell you its hard. I told myself I wouldn't forget, but it seems I have already.

Lately, I've been feeling alot of pain and rejection...due to the past. And, right now, it really hurts.
If you guys could pray that I would be given strength and the endurance to get through this, that would be amazing.

LS, I know what ALL of that is like. PM me sometime, or hit me up on facebook, and we can talk. And of course, I am praying.

Thank you all so much for praying. I'm still unsure on a lot of things, but I'm trusting God and believing that He'll show me in His time.

Hey all. Please pray for my little pixie dust and me. I went for my second ultrasound today, and they said that she is on the low side of normal for weight and amnoitic fluid. I have to go see a specialist 2.5 hours away April 1 to make sure everything is okay. They said it could be nothing, but we need to make sure.

The only thing I know is that its essentially either a really nice ultrasound and a specialist, or a regular ultrasound and still a specialist. As you can all imagine, I'm scared. Very scared.

I want/need a better job. 12 hours is killing me...and on top of that it's all night...I'm pretty sure I won't survive the 20 day evaluation anyways, so on my days off it's back to jobhunting...but at least I'm not quitting and running away.

That's the important thing Justin. If you stop this job it shouldn't be "quitting" but moving to where God wants you for that time.

Hey everybody. If any of you remember DiscipleofElyon from like two years ago, he and I are in the same boat. We're both waiting on our yea/nay from the USAFA. We're both kinda going crazy. If you could just pray that:

A. We have peace about it.

B. We get accepted. Soon.

XD I would be ok except for my exceptionally low score on the basketball throw. I understand why you want to throw grenades and such, and I'm good at that. But throwing a BASKETBALL from a KNEELING position? I felt happy I could throw it 30 feet. But that's sub par. Everything else is in order. So.... I'm freaking out a bit, and the mailman must be starting to wonder why I stare at him so much.

Thanks. Smile

Praying for you, adira, justin, and banana.

Also, I have a job interview on Monday at 12:30. Its in the field of social work, but it's only part time and it's an hour from home. I'm not sure if I'll accept it if I'm offered, so pray that I'll make the right decision.

Pray for a friend of mine who is going through some tough times. His name is Cedric..and he could be making the decision on whether to put God before his girl or the other way around. On top of that he just lost a good friend.

Thanks.

I'd like to request prayer for a friend who has been making some pretty bad choices. She's in her teens, under 18, and is pregnant.
Right now...she doesn't see what she has done. How much power she has to shape this small life, and even her own.
If you all could pray that her eyes will be opened, and that she will -still- see that she is loved, I would appreciate it.

Thank you.
