I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength...

To my sweet and faithful readers - one more prayer request...

I am going to visit the funeral home this evening to offer support and comfort to my friend Todd and his family. If you would, please pray that I will be able to discrern when to speak, when to listen, and when to leave. Pray that when I speak, I won't say anything that would hurt or offend them. I want to be a blessing to this family in their time of loss, but have never really done this before all by myself and frankly I am a little nervous.

Thanks to all of you who have faithfully answered my requests - it really means a lot to me!

Prayer request

I found out today that a friend who I used to work with several years ago recently lost a baby girl. I haven't had contact with my friend in a LONG, long time, and just happened to hear about this "through the grapevine".

Faith Michelle Dell (along with her identical twin Ashleigh) was born July 11, 2005. The girls were born prematurely as a result of Twin to Twin Transfer Syndrome. While Ashleigh's health began to improve, Faith's did not, and she passed away after 6 months and 27 days here on earth.

If you would, please take some time to pray for Todd (my friend), his wife Michelle, their surviving children son Parker, and daughter Ashleigh. I can't even imagine what they must be going through right now.

Thanks so much.

Remember the old Budweiser commercials...

You know, the "real men of genius" ones? Even though I don't drink, I've always cracked up at those commercials.

The state of Maryland comptroller's office must have a sense of humor, too.
