    "heaven bound with the hammer down"

    Do you miss seeing that old thump online as much as I do? I talk to her daily, yet I still miss seeing that lady stand for Lord online very badly. I think I'm going to print this off, go over there later today, depending on how many replies this thread gets, and show it to her. After all the damage that took place to her home -- she is pretty tired and in need of a cherrin' up.

    If you'd like, please leave her a message or a simple "Hi".

    Thanks,
    Brother Shane

    ...that's what you get for not readin' the coffee house! :laugh:

    A lightening storm passed over our neck of the woods and struck her house. Her air conditioners, phone lines, refrigerators, and other appliances were damaged. She had a few things that she has had 20 years that were ruined because of it. She has spent the last two days replacing things and trying to get her house back in order. I saw her yesterday and her eyes were bloodshot red. She is very, very tired. I thought a few nice notes would cheer her up, in fact, I know they will!

    Hey there granny! I'm sorry to hear what happened to your house, but what doesn't kill you just makes you stronger. I am keeping you in my prayers. :praying: With God, nothing is impossible. If there is anything I can do, don't hesitate to get Shane to email me. Love in Christ!

    Hi Granny Gumbo! I'm sorry that happened to you. Lightening/storms have always skeered me, I imagine it must have been absolutely terrifying for you!

    Things can be lost so fast. I'm glad to hear YOU weren't harmed. Try to keep it that way and get some rest amid the chaos, ok?

    Granny,

    If only I had the means I would be over there in a flash to get that old house going again. May all your troubles be at an end and our blessed Lord will be honored.

    I don't know what 12PM CST would be in British Summer Time :laugh: , but if I'm not too late:

    Sorry to hear of your troubles, Granny Gumbo. May God help you and bless you, and cause you to be a good witness for Him in the way you face this trouble. In the words of Numbers 6.24-26:


    24 The LORD bless you and keep you; 25 The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; 26 The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.

    ""For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be." (Matthew 24:27)

    Granny? Did we miss something?!? :D :D :D Get some rest sister. Stuff is replaceable, you're not. Glad you're OK...
