Off to the quacks tomorrow to get my feet seen to. I hope they'll put them right. Every time I put on the orthopedic shoes they've made for me, it seems that they rip up a toe or the sole of a foot. I've had to hide them to keep myself from wearing them. If you could add my feet to the prayer list today I'd be grateful.
Hi Jonathan. I thought you and your readers might enjoy this update about Alfred Real, for whom you posted my prayer request last year. A year ago yesterday, Al was burned over 80% of his body when he and a friend were playing with a gasoline can. This story in last week's AJC shows how amazingly well Al is recovering. There was also a spot last night on our local TV news, but I can't find the video version. Nice to have a bright spot of news now and then, right?
We went to dinner with Al's aunts, Endsley and Joan, the other day. They both remarked how they really felt that prayer made a huge difference in Al's recovery. Neither of them are particularly religious, so it goes to show how important it is to have folks praying. People feel it, even from a distance. Not sure how that all works, but I'll leave the mechanics of it to God.
Poor, old KJ. On top of all the other crap that's going down in his life at the moment he's had to visit the dentist for root canal work and the doctors for an "infection thingy." It never rains but it pours.
Spare a kind thought and a prayer for Sherry at A FEATHER ADRIFT who is suffering from a bad summer cold at the moment.

More than 100 Taliban armed with rocket launchers attacked a Pakistani checkpost near the Afghan border in South Waziristan on Thursday, triggering gunbattles that killed eight soldiers.
