Prayer Request
« on: July 02, 2011, 05:57:43 PM »
Asking that my Appleseed family and friends add my Father to their prayers.

Struggling with serious health issues.

Army certified him as a Rifleman in the Late 50's.

To me he has always been Dad. A man who knew what he was about.

I always think of him when telling the story of Jonathan Harrington in the first strike. :'(

The three awake can rouse a town. By turning the whole place upside down.

The many awake can make such a fuss. It finally awakens the rest of us.

Xeyed Prayer Request Update
« Reply #19 on: July 13, 2011, 10:49:11 AM »
Thank you to my Appleseed family and friends for adding  my Father to their prayers.

With over 200 hits to this topic. The vision of 200 Riflemen virtually circled in prayer around my dad has been comforting.

Thank you to all who have reached out and comforted.

Today my dad entered a hospice. His journey is almost done.

Your continued prayers are appreciated.
