The Prayer List is a daily feature at OCICBW... with an option to light a candle as you pray. If anybody has any concerns they would like included on tomorrow's list please email me with details or leave your request in the comments to this post. I will include relevant photos if provided.
The following email is from an original OCICBW...er. She has been fighting this case for as long as I can remember and we have prayed for her many times. Today we thank God for giving our friend the courage and strength to persevere and claim the victor's crown in a system that seems designed to protect the abuser rather than the injured party.
The wrongful termination suite from hell was finally resolved today after six years, two months, and eight days. I have my settlement checks in my possession and will head to the bank the first thing tomorrow. I am sure my co-plaintiffs will do the same.
Under the terms of the settlement, I am not allowed to say how much we settled for. I cannot say that they were at fault. I cannot say that we "won" the case. On the other hand, they wrote the checks to us, not the other way around. You are thereby free to come to your own conclusions.
I would like to thank the OCICBW... community for all of their prayers and moral support throughout this whole ordeal. You will never know how much I have appreciated it.
Thanks be to God!
Thanks be to God indeed!
FOR YOUR PRAYERS
For "J", that she may given the spirit of prayer again. Thanks.

I hadn't seen Billy in 16 years, but when Jay called last night with news about him I knew it would be bad. Billy was one of those friends you could tell would have a tough life. He sure lived up to that. Somehow he wound up in Kellogg, Idaho, where he died Tuesday night. I've spent a decade saying "that's really sad" to every story I've heard of Billy's adventures. So this time I'll just say rest in peace buddy.

CAD AIR A BHFUILIM AG SMAOINEAMH AR MAIDIN?:
I’d hoped to post several pieces here this week. Unfortunately, as the Scottish poet Robert Burns famously observed, “The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men gang aft a-gley.” In this case, that scourge of travelers, intestinal distress, struck with a vengeance. I haven’t left the cottage in three days and haven’t felt much like writing (or anything else).

It seems that future has been temporarily placed on hold. We won’t be moving until next year. I am devastated. I am trying to cope. I am dealing with the reality of having a lot on my plate right now.

LEAVE IT LAY WHERE JESUS FLANG IT:
We had hoped Joel could come home last night, I left his room last night thinking I would take him coffee this morning and bring him home. But the second part of the stress tests on his heart came back late last night saying that something was wrong. They are going up through the inner thigh this morning to take a look at the heart and all that brings blood to and from it and hopefully make a fix.
