Thank you, Renee - very much appreciated

The procedure went well but I didn't appreciate being required to fast from 6am and not getting done until 5pm! I mean, 11 hours. Just ridiculous!

a) it's been acceptable for decades that patients only need to fast for a maximum of 6 hours
b) it's really not that difficult for theatre to communicate and tell the ward staff when patients need to fast from. For me is should have only been since 10am.

I shall write to someone about this. It's a protocol from the dark ages and was changed so many years ago I can't even remember when. I've always applied protocol b)!

Why thank you, Jim! What a nice thought.

I do believe though that there will be a contingent from around nearby places of my bonesmart members! Should be entertaining!

I would peg the chances of Jesus return in any of our lifetimes as not very likely.  We do have a better chance than other generations have now, but Ijust dont see it happening anytime soon.

Interesting theory about the day is as a thousand years.  The Jewish Calendar this year is at 5778 which some use to speculate that when that thing hits 6000 we could see the return of Jesus for the 1000 reign.  That is still a good 200 years ahead.

Of  course.

And too bad the conference isn't in Pittsburgh. I believe you would have more than one visitor from this forum.

I'm not overly concerned with it, I just thought its be fun (interesting) to discuss

And it is an interesting topic. Sorry if I made it turn into a thing against you. Naughty me!

My father was also absent for most of my life but I am blessed with that one memory from my four year old self! It was a feeling I got when I first became a Christian and that I've had a few times since. Especially one time when praying with a dear friend. I was moved to memorialise it in this love song. I hope you'll allow me to share it here

I feel Your soft caresses,
Your warm breath
Cascading over my head and shoulders
down my arms like silk chiffon.
You are the core of my body,
my heart's beat,
You are the meaning of my life
my Saviour, my Father, my God
I. whose rightful place is
to kneel are Your feet in penitence
hardly daring to touch
the tip of Your toe with my tears.
How is it possible for me
to stand before You thus?
Only by the love of Christ
the Blood of the Lamb
The desire of God to be united
with His people.
Only because of this can I
stand before You,
be one of Your sheep
Your beloved child.
Only thus can I dare to
love You and return
a tiny part of that love
You have expressed to me.
My Holy Saviour, my Father, my God

This is an interesting topic. TBH I've never worried about things like that as I feel like I have a child's trust in the Lord, just as I had in my earthly father when I was a tot. If he held out his hand to me, I put my hand in his and felt like everything in the world was golden!  Can you feel like that, Bryan? I do hope you can!

Ive never had a father figure who was worth the dirt he walked on to be honest.  Well ok I did once as a very young boy but he died well before I was ever able to form any lasting memories with him.
