Heart thread - 01/24/2010

My niece Paula just sent this out news on Jim and Sharon Tuck. The Tuck family are folks I know from way back when.
Been watching the postings on Facebook about Jim Tuck. In case you didn’t know Sharon and him were in an accident north of Bakersfield on Monday night. They hydroplaned and get a guardrail. Jim was posting on FB and said they came thru it with some issues, but not in the hospital. He had 3 broken ribs and bruises. On Thursday Sharon made postings that said he was in ICU at the VA hospital with 4 broken ribs and a punctured lung and going thru blood transfusions due to the loss of blood from internal bleeding. Sharon just made a post that he has requested everyone to pray for him extensively as he is in severe pain on 3 different fronts. They are also doing a cat scan on him tomorrow. Just thought I’d let you know.
O God of heavenly powers, by the might of your command you drive away from our bodies all sickness and all infirmity: Be present in your goodness with your servant Jim, that his weakness may be banished and his strength restored; and that, his health being renewed, he may bless your holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Your attention to these issues makes me aware on a daily basis of how blessed my life is, despite its little bumps and dings, and how much I have and ought to freely share with those in greater need than I.

I'm a much better human being for knowing you, Paul. I'll never be able to thank you adequately for that.

Prayers ascending.

Mostly, Ralph, I just pass them on. Usually all I can do is hold people in my heart before God. That, however, helps keep me human and compassionate (well, more compassionate than I otherwise would be).

Niece Paula commented in her e-mail that I would remember them, but all I remember is the name. Too long ago in a galaxy far away. I cannot conjure faces or stories. But that doesn't matter. A call for prayer went out and I am happy to share it. I find comfort in the net of caring hearts that exists around the world, people of all backgrounds responding in very different way yet holding each other. Keeps me going.

Thanks to all who have offered prayers.
