  10. The word Advent derives from the Latin word meaning coming. The Lord is coming. We may reflect that every year at this time we celebrate his coming , so that in a sense we can lose the feeling of expectancy and joyful anticipation, because at the end of the season, everything seems to return to pretty much the same routine. If that is the case, then our preparation may have been lacking and we have therefore been robbed of much of the true meaning of this season.. Learning every day the true meaning through the POWER OF PRAISE.

  18. Wife & I split 3+ yrs ago. Had problems, drug addiction & a loss of interest on her part, the resulting infidelity & criticism on my part. She moved out though I begged her to stay. Things were ok for 3 mos, then she started going out with all her friends & forgot about us. I thought she was just hurting, I tried to reconcile 5 mos later. She refused. I thought she moved on so I forced myself to & found a GF, 7 mos later she wanted to reconcile but I was wary & didn\'t want to be hurt & refused to give up my GF. Attempt failed. 1 mo later I tried to reconcile, she refused. Few months later, she slept with my best friend (former now) to get back at me. We reconciled 1 yr ago & I forgave her. She begged me to take her back & cuz I still loved her, I did. I didn\'t give GF up, I was afraid of being hurt again. Things were good for 8 mos but kept pushing her, not giving up GF. So let GF go, but cuz I took GF out, had her over 1 last time, she snapped says it\'s over. I want her back. Help! Please pray for me and my family!!!

  22. Please pray for me and my family. I\'m disabled and I\'ve been trying to get a part time job to make some extra money. SSDI doesn\'t pay all the bills especially a lot of my doctor bills. I applied for a job delivering papers a few hours each morning. It\'ll be no more than four hours a day and I\'ll be sitting for most of the time. They called me this morning and asked me to come in on Monday. Please pray that I\'ll be able to get a job that works for me. Something I can do and something that won\'t mess up my disability payments. I can\'t work full time and losing that money would make us homeless.
