Please pray for our friend Kirstin, author of the BAREFOOT AND LAUGHING blog. Yesterday she stated on FaceBook that the metastatic tumours in her brain are "progressing."

My back is still in spasm mode and I am into my third day off from work. Three and a half days out of work! I never do that. The lack of comfortable mobility is driving me crazy.
Coordinate your prayers for Monday, 16th. May. That's when they stick me, and I find out just what this calcification stuff's about...
From XINHUA NEWS AGENCY:
Four miners had been found dead and another 10 were missing after an explosion hit a coal mine in northern Mexico Tuesday morning.
"The forecast (for the missing miners) is not hopeful," , Labor Secretary Javier Lozano said.
From Undercover Nun:
Undercover Nun comes with wonderful news, for which she gives GREAT thanks and praise to God!
My short-term disability period began on August 5, 2010, and continues today. The claim was originally denied, because my doctor's report didn't include evidence of a disability. (That's what happens when someone at the doc's office neglects to fill in all the places that say EXPLAIN, followed by 5 or 6 lines.)
Naturally, I appealed the denial, providing a whole truckload of evidence of disability. And this evening, six weeks after Aetna's appeals department called to let me know they were beginning the adjudication process on my appeal, I got a phone call from them.
The denial was overturned! Aetna will now pay me for the 6 weeks I did not work at all, and for all the part-time weeks up through 11/3. This will help us get our utility bills current, get less behind on our car payments, make a dent in child support payments I haven't been able to make, and make a dent in the income taxes we owe.
The next step is to ensure that they properly handle the transition to long-term disability, but I'm not worrying about that tonight. Tonight I give God thanks and praise!
My thanks and praise go also to everyone in this wonderfully loving community. As Jesus said to his disciples in the 32nd chapter of Matthew's gospel: "Verily I say unto thee, thou rocketh!"

Today began on the early side with the joyous news of a new baby born to Chucks and Adanna Iwuagwu. Chucks is the curate at St Mary’s and it was lovely to hear him talking about his new son with such joy. The babe is called Christian Ezeibe.
