Oh, Toogie,of course I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Take care, dear lady of yourself, too! Hugs*, Deb
I will thank you Deb. You stay well!
Oh Toogie. You and your family will definitely be in my prayers. Like others have said, it is very common to use a different word for "cancer", especially when it is first diagnosed. He most likely heard cancer and can not deal with that word right now. You are a strong woman with the support of this group behind you and God lifting everyone up in his hands.
I’m glad my faith is in Him because I feel so inadequate. Thank you for your prayers. Jenny’s mind has acknowledged but not her heart. She says if she breaks down he will know and give up. I think it’s her way of coping too.
My prayers for Douglas, and his family (you too, Toogie). I believe he knows the seriousness of his sickness. It probably is his way of dealing with it. My Dad passed from lung cancer many years ago. He would not talk about it. He went through chemo and all - it didn't help. He never would talk about what he went through fighting in Africa during WWII and would not talk about his cancer. He was 64. Prayers and hugs, Laura
I prayed with him before I left. I hope he gives thought to our conversation. He doesn’t read his bible, but sadly neither does his brother, my husband. My husband depends on Sunday school, worship service or me for his learning and I know I could devote more time in studying. Anyway, I encouraged Douglas to read telling him the Bible is so interesting. Full of stories of battles, of love stories (Ruth), of instruction how to live, salvation so many things.
Toogie, My prayers are with you and your family. We are all trying to live thru this situation without any more stress than we already have. I have 4 of the grands during the week, as the parents are still working at this point. Trying to keep life as normal as possible for them.
You are right about trying to not stress out. I think this will either bring out the best in people or the worst. I think we as a people have been wasteful with what we have been blessed with, such as food. We as a people overeat or throw out leftovers. This may teach us to conserve our resources/ supplies as they may have to last a long time. No time to be picky.
A bit of humor-I also told my husband it may keep marriages together. If as a couple you are forced to quarantine for a long period the husband or wife will be faithful to one another...no cheating, running around. See how all things fit into God’s plans!
Dear, dear Toogie. I am so sorry to hear of your cause of distress. I will be in diligent prayer for all of you. What a terrible thing to be going through for you all.
I have had times in my life that my heart wouldn't let my head understand what was going on. Be gentle with him.
I love your post and know that God is with you all.
I'm going to add him to my prayers, also his darling wife and you and your family. Love and hugs, Jerrilyn
Thank you my friend. Your prayers are greatly appreciated.
Dear Toogie, my thoughts and prayers are with you all. I know God has Douglas's life in His hands and as he has given his life to Jesus, he knows he has eternal life with Him. And having you as his sister can only encourage him.
I hope your son in law can get home soon.
Life all over the world is really strange at the moment and our Anglican Bishop has asked that our church services stop. Our Op Shop has closed, our Prime Minister has stopped all incoming aircraft from overseas visitors, businesses are shutting and we are being asked to self isolate if possible. There are so many things that are going wrong with our world and this Corona virus is just one of them. Love Chris
Thanks Chris for your prayers. I know you believe and are comforted by Psalms 91
Oh Toogie, so sorry to hear about your B-I-L. Praying for God's will to ve done and hopefully that to be that he is healed. He knows the situation. Some people just can't bring themselves to say the C word. And besides that, a positive attitude along with laughter can go a long way towards a good outcome. Hugs. Nan
Thank you for your prayers.
My friend here at home and I were texting this morning about laughter being good medicine. ( don’t misunderstand not making light of any of the virus, deaths or cancer) but I told her maybe if it becomes enforced to be quarantined at home, her and I should be together and put our sourpuss (😉) hubbies together at the other house. She said sounds good to her!-lol
hi Toogie. His saying infection for the word cancer could be the meds talking or it's as much as he can bear right now and he is protecting his emotions. Either way, I'll be praying for Douglas and the family members as they work their way through all this. It's a lot. Saw a pic today on the internet of a lady who resembled you and was already holding you in my prayers. It was actually before and after pictures of her becoming a
"fitness influencer", whatever that is.
The pic wasn’t me- I’m still the same size😩😉
