Now I know we all have airplane and airport horror stories to tell, but here's a good one.

JB and I were going out of town and of course you strip off your jewelry and other accoutrements going through security. JB takes off his ring and watch and places it in his coat pocket and we go through the lines. We come our and redress, and lo and behold the ring is missing (not the wedding ring-his university one) NO RING. We search through everything. pockets, his pockets, my pockets and I start praying. NO RING.
So he goes through security thinking he dropped it or someone picked it up. NO RING. But, security says, bring back your jacket and we will X-Ray it.
Yes, shipmates, the ring had wedged itself inside the lining and there it was, bold as brass,

I've just realised that another prayer was answered this morning when a conference call I was dreading turned out much better than anticipated. It's shocking how easily we forget that we've asked for help, and don't thank the Lord for his goodness. [Angel]

Also, thanks and praise for the beautiful weather and all the lovely spring flowers out in the gardens. [Axe murder]

How draconian is the TSA there? I have two rings, one white gold wedding and one silver and turquoise from New Mexico. I remove my heavy-duty Seiko watch but never the rings!

I give thanks that yesterday's visit to the doctor treating my melanoma went well. The MRI results showed my liver remains clean!!! [Yipee] And my melanoma treatment will not be affected by any treatment for my newly discovered prostate cancer (generally a much less iffy thing than melanoma). And i heard some good things related to choices in dealing with the prostate thing that have me feeling more confident about that. And I feel very healthy. Good things are also going on in rearrangement/redecoration of my apartment. And this week spring has been beautiful.

A Good decision, a Right decision, a decision made with Intergrity and Wisdom.

A decision that will impact very favourably on so many people and a decision that i've waited two years to see.

Am so happy i could sit and blub

Thank You Lord!

Our project leader, S, has returned after his flirtation with pleurisy that morphed into pneumonia so, with one good lung, he's back on light duties. This week's review went well, all the questions were answerable (after a fashion) but we have just fourteen days left [Eek!] At least we know what we'll be serving up on May 31st.

Great service this evening.

2 years ago the local churches' youth group has 3 members and questions were being asked about whether to continue it.

Now it is 17 strong, and 10 of them were baptised and/or confirmed at a service involving the Methodist Minister, the Baptist minister and a bishop. Each one being welcomed according to the church where they worship.

Good to see such co-operation between the denominations.

I have survived my notice period and am no longer employed in job-which-was-making-me-ill.

My DBS (aka CRB) check for my new job is still being processed, so I get a few weeks' break before I start my new job. (I can afford this financially, and emotionally / in terms of breathing space it suits me wonderfully.)

As a result of the above, I am currently a very happy bunny.

I have a permanent contract, in the place i love working, doing the job i am loving. I didn't even have to go through an application or interview as they used the results from the last internal recruitment which was only six weeks ago. Very grateful that things have worked out so smoothly and come together so nicely. This news came the next working day after i discovered that i would have to wait until i had been there a year or until i was on a permanent contract to get a mortgage. Thank you for astonishing timing!

The Girl's step-dad (her mom's partner of 7+ years), AB, had a stroke some weeks ago. He lost the ability to swallow. I just got an IM from her that AB can eat small portions and swallow a little bit. I've been praying like mad for him and asked my whole congregation to pray for him 2 Sundays in a row. God is so good!

The lovely man in the Post Office in Chorlton [South Manchester, UK] who took my VISA card out of the machine when I left it there and kept it for me so when I went back in a panic an hour or so later he just smiled and handed it to me apologising for not chasing after me but he had customers and 'doesn't run as fast as he used to' - what a star!

Much to give thanks for today. The path report after the second cancer surgery came back clear. I've got rid of all my dressings and drains, I can fit into a pair of jeans at last, and can put my boiler suit away now. I could almost pass for a normal human being! Now I have to gear up for the nuclear and chemical warfare, but the surgery is finished.

My profound thanks for God's gifts that guide the hands of the surgeons, and to all who hold my wife and me in their prayers.

May other cancer patients be given such strength.

Peace to all

The project I have been w*rking on since Decemebr officially ended today and we completed the report we had ben commisioned to produce. As usual, it wasn't completed until about an hour before the presentation. A couple of people have had a month or more off, so stress and strain could have played a part, but nevertheless, we did it!

Proof of which is that the 'Next Steps' chapter was accepted, so the team stays intact and we have something to do from Monday. Problem is, it becomes an IT project (in part) so finishing on time is very unlikely.

Praising God for good results for my friend G who was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer at the end of last year. After 6 rounds of chemotherapy she had her surgery at the end of May and the post-surgery pathology results have come back last week showing the cancer has gone. She'll still need to have the planned radiotherapy and reconstruction surgery but no more chemo. [Yipee]

Thanks to the surrounding parishes who have so welcomed us during a difficult time in our parish and diocese.

Thanks for safe travel for us and the kangaroos who also want to share the road in the early morning on the long journey to find a welcoming church.

Thanks to those who have welcomed us into their homes and lives and shared our burdens, who have prayed with us and for us.

Thanks be to the Holy Spirit for arms wrapped around us, for the Holy Scriptures, for prayer answered.

Thanks from here that our failed water pump [from the well to the rooftop tank] was just that the hose had disconnected from the pump itself and it all cost a fairly negligible amount to fix, as opposed to a new pump which might have cost a tad more!

Today I am very, very grateful that my kids are safe.

Daughter-Unit was at work today when a woman drove through the front door right in front of D-U. Nobody was hurt, thank goodness.

D-U's hubby works in law enforcement and was by the side of the road Tuesday evening with other officers on a call. All the officers were out of their cars, dealing with the incident, when a young woman, going well over the speed limit, crashed into S-i-L's cop car. He was able to leap away from his car which was pushed into another patrol car. His car was totaled. If he had been in the car, I have no doubt he'd be in the hospital right now.

jj...a shaky mama right now.

Praise to God for the wonderful new man in my life, I call him "batman" on here (SoF) to guard his real life name. He is a tall drink of water. Sweet, kind. And (dare I say it) sexy. Oh thank you God. [Axe murder]

eta: he is lawyer without a facebook. So dang it, can't show him to you on facebook those of you on there with me. And my mom is on there...not quite ready for 20 questions yet...

The Dowager Great Aunt M (in hospital with a broken hip at 92) was so much better and brighter on Saturday [Axe murder] that the Dowager Mrs S, her slightly younger sister, was much more able to face the fact that one of her oldest friends and colleagues had died. E was in constant pain with osteoarthritis and needed open-heart surgery that she wouldn't have survived, but her passing has still left a gaping hole in the Dowager's life. [Votive] [Votive]

Thank you God for the healing for Great Aunt M and its effect on the Dowager [Overused]

Mrs. S, sad and glad at the same time

Giving thanks that a colonoscopy today revealed nothing to worry about: I was so scared I couldn't bear to mention it beforehand. Now about to get on with the rest of my life.

Wonderful to read these thankful posts.

One of mine to add; Daughter Erin has a new job, in the nick of time as she was covering maternity leave in her current position which is about to end.

As I posted on the prayer thread, I'm praising that my missing cat came home on her own. An additional thanks that a vet checkup has shown she took no harm from the experience except picked up some fleas.
