PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Ken

2019-Feb-10

Good Afternoon All,

I have heard from Ken Kelly’s Friend, Jim Bardmore, with an update on Ken Kelly. Ken has had a second operation as a result of his acute Diabetes condition. Madeline has just shared that Ken’s leg was amputated 3 inches below the knee. Ken is doing the best he can for now. He is resting comfortably at Kessler Institute in Saddle Brook, N.J. It is expected at this time that he will probably remain at Kessler for a few weeks. Madeline has shared that once Ken’s routine is set, he can have visitors. Ken does not have a phone yet. Knowing Ken, once he gets a phone he will be making follow up calls to Company recruiters for the Career Fair. We pray that he is up to that real soon. Please keep Ken and Madeline in your prayers. We pray for a full recovery. We pray that the MDs get the Diabetes and its’ side problems under control and get this smiling and committed Jasper on the phones once again. Ken has always answered our call for prayers for others with determination and love. We offer up the same for Ken. As Jim and Madeline keep me posted, I will do the same for you. Thank you from Ken, Madeline and their Family for your prayers. Much appreciated. Please raise the volume for this good man. Thank you. God Bless.

Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for two

2019-Feb-09

Good Evening All,

Please raise the volume for this precious little tyke, Mike’s 2 year old Great Grand Daughter, Abigail Catherine. She has been hospitalized with an unexplained very high fever. We pray for Abigail Catherine, and her parents. We pray the Doctors Discover the cause of Abigail Catherine’s fever and are able to quickly bring it under control, free of complications. Please keep the volume up.

We pray also for Tom, the Son of Mike’s good Friend, the late Judge Bob Sise. Tom, an attorney in Amsterdam, N.Y. is suffering from symptoms of early Alzheimers. Tom has had to give up the practice of law and his health is declining as well. Please keep Tom and his Family in your prayers.

Thank you All. God Bless.

Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)

Good Morning All,

A prayer of thanks will not be remiss as Mike McEneney shares the good news that Great Grand Daughter, Abigail Catherine, is back home. It was found that she had the Flu and an upper respitory infection, common to young Children, and causes high fevers. While she still has a fever, it is much closer to normal and with continued medication, it is hoped that both infections will be cleared up. She is eating and drinking fluids again and no doubt sharing her precious smile once more. Her Parents thank you for your prayers and good wishes as do Abigail Catherine’s Great Grand Parents, Mike and Cathie. Thank you. God Bless.

Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)

5. Volleyball Team Devastated by Fire Shows Up Without Equipment, But Opponents Have New Uniforms, Supplies and Gift Cards Waiting

After the small town of Paradise, California, was nearly wiped out by wildfires, the local high school girl’s volleyball team was still determined to play their semifinal championship match—despite having no uniforms or equipment after evacuating with only the clothes on their back.

But the opposing team from Forest Lake Christian High School in Auburn was waiting with a big surprise.

Within 24 hours, they had collected donations of $16,000 and when the girls from Paradise Adventist Academy showed up, they were greeted with new custom uniforms, knee pads, and socks—and a whole lot of love.

*** end quote ***

Here’s one that shot an arrow into the heart of a grumpy fat old white guy injineer.  24 hours?  To pull that all together in that amount of time is impressive.  To do it at all, humbles me.

From time to time, I see GOFUNDMEs for folks who have hit a hard time, and while I’m not Bezos wealthy, I do let the moth out of the old wallet for some exercise. 

(Ever heard that old Irish adage about “good works only count if done in secret”. Funny, I learned that from my maternal English Protestant grandmother who wanted to teach me about my maternal grandfather’s “heathen Irish culture that has a few good points”. ROFL!)

I tell you this not to pat myself on the back.  I’m sure I could do more.  And others do so much with so little. But to hopefully re-inspire others.  See I view stories like this, not as disclosing a “secret” and losing credit in Heaven for them, as much as sharing inspiration that the world is a nicer place than the news would lead us to believe.

FWIW YMMV
