praise report #1: i have a friend who has been athiest as long as i've known him. last week i said a few prayers for him, asking God to reveal himself to my friend. he emailed me yesterday.... after he'd come home from church :)
praise report #2: d'arcy has been miserable. i didnt think she would live through last night. she has difficulty breathing, walking, eating, etc. today while i was at work feeling sad about the situation, i asked God to heal her. when i came home, she was still in my bed where she spends most of her time, but she was wagging her tail! she does not do that much at all anymore. later tonight as i was cooking dinner, she got a toy out and started playing with it, and she wagged her tail even more when mom came home. then she ate a bowlful of our dinner AND some of her own dog food. her spirits are so much higher than yesterday! ironically- and i realize this might be cheesy- the "daily bible verse" on my google homepage was psalm 36:6-
"Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep. O LORD, you preserve both man and beast."
crazy! seriously, God's pretty rad, he's been pretty busy in my life lately. which leads me to this prayer request-
prayer request: please, please, please pray that my dad finds a job. the company he's working for at the moment hasn't given him any work in almost a week. to make matters worse, they told him he had work on saturday, so he drove to some far location only to find out that they needed a different type of work done (he's an electrician). there is a job opening here in town that he would be very excited to get. he got laid off from his steady job back in september, and since then he hasn't been able to find steady work. obviously things are tense in the house because of this.
