Our very beloved brother, Gören, has been on hospice for a week. He has an aggressive form of prostate cancer. According to his niece, the does not have a lot of time before he joins the Communion of Saints. Please keep him in your prayers as he graduates from mortality. And remember his blood family and his adopted family one of whom I am privileged to be.
Growing up in the shadow of a Swedish Lutheran Church, I learned Children of the Heavenly Father at a very young age. It was always sung in times of distress and for funerals. The last verse of the English translation says:
Neither life nor death shall ever
From the Lord, His children sever.
His the loving purpose solely,
To preserve them, pure and holy.

You may recall after lovely Georgia died, we took up with a winsome old Golden Retriever named Jed who had been left with Homeward Bound Golden Retriever Rescue after his owner went into the hospital. Well, this morning we got a call from Homeward Bound saying the owner was out of the hospital and baying for his friend. So Jed's gone back home to be with the companion of the first 12 years of his life. It's a happy ending, but I'll miss the old guy. He is grand.
Would you all please pray for our friend Skittles? Her financial situation has become very difficult.

From VOICE OF AMERICA:
Afghan officials say a team of gunmen, including some suicide bombers, attacked a prominent hotel in the Afghan capital, Kabul, late Tuesday night. The fighting to re-secure the building lasted hours. Afghan security forces called in support from NATO helicopters. Authorities say 10 civilians and all of the gunmen were killed in the fighting.
Clashes erupted Wednesday between protestors and police firing tear gas in several parts of Athens ahead of a vote in parliament on austerity measures aimed at preventing a Greek debt default.
Police fired tear gas, rubber bullets and pellets early Wednesday in Tahrir Square, Cairo, to break up a demonstration by relatives of those killed in Egypt's revolution. The clashes left at least 26 officers injured. 14 protesters were also seriously injured and admitted to hospitals.
