Do you see a connection to being a patient. We come as a patient to the doctor. Looking for help. Looking for love and caring.

Crystal McDowell March 27, 2013 at 11:35 am

Thanks for bringing out that connection. We are in need of spiritual healing from our Savior.

God bless,
Crystal

Awesome! God knows the why, what, when, where, and how about all of us. Thanks for sharing.

God bless,

So happy this article showed up on my Facebook page, Crystal! Was sorta feeling a bit ‘unloved’ today, for some silly reason. How easy it is to get wrapped up in oneself and forget others~!
Loved how you used the acronym for ‘patient.’ That was so clever!
May you, Crystal, and your family have a Happy, Blessed Easter!

Praise God Pat. Your response as well as others reminds me of Proverbs 15:23 “A person finds joy in giving an apt reply–how good is a timely word” and Proverbs 16:34 “Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones” Isn’t God good? Amen.

This has come like a challenge to me.
Thanks.

I believe it is a challenge to all those who want God’s best in their lives…don’t you think? He wants us to rest in His loving hands of provision and grace. Amen.
God bless,
Crystal

Hello, Crystal!
This popped up in my email again today…read it all over again. In doing so, realized I’m having a tad of a problem with N-for Negotiable in loving someone.
As a Mother of five children, perhaps you can shed some insight on a problem I’m presently having with my 36 years old son, Chris.
Because of finances, Chris will be moving back home w/his Dad and me soon. (Management has raised the rent another $150 where Chris presently lives! Absurd!) Thank Dear God Chris has a job! So many folks don’t these days, right?
Do I treat Chris as an adult or as his Mother? He has a few “habits” I definitely don’t approve of and told Chris I will NOT NEGOTIATE on these habits. My rules will apply, period.
Chris’ habits include drinking beer to excess, smoking some marijuana, and watching pornography. (Pastor Jack Wellman had advised me on what to do about the pornography, about putting a filter on computer & TV. What a blessed man Pastor Jack is, isn’t he, Crystal?) When I told Chris about the pornography bit, he had a fit!!! Threatened to live out on the streets rather than give that up! You believe the addictive hold pornography has on folks? Told Chris it was up to him…’cause what I insist upon goes.
Crystal, I’m only doing this ’cause of my love for my son. Just dread having more volatile arguments like we used to have before he moved out 9 or 10 years ago (can’t exactly recall.) My hubby, Gary, realizes NOW the mistakes he made with Chris growing up, by not standing with me about discipline. (When Chris & I were in the middle of a heated argument, Gary would tell us to go to separate rooms! You believe that? Then I’d get mad at Gary and say to him, (outside Chris’ hearing) ‘how dare you treat me like a child! I’m Chris’ Mother, you’re his Dad, we’re supposed to work TOGETHER on discipline!’ For whatever reason, my words fell on deaf ears.
Could really use your input on this, Crystal. We only have one son. Your having 5 kids, is it true you make all your ‘mistakes’ on the first one? LOL
Your sister in Christ, Jesus…Patty
